Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Transmission Filter My son changed the transmission fluid in my car and was going to replace the transmission filter. Apparently there are two separate types of filters for this model, but he could find neither one in my car. He found where the metal was stamped for the "oil filter looking" one to go, but it had not been cut out. When he dropped the pan to access the other one, there was not one there either. He is a very good mechanic but this has him scratching his head. Any ideas on this?

2005 Saturn Ion. transmission issue


Transmissions have "filters." It may need to be changed as the fluid may be dirty and clogging some of the pressure valves in the ******.

The transmission seems to slip when going in reverse in my Ford Explorer 1994 (OK going forward). Transmission fluid is OK.


have one myself w/over 400.000 miles suggest you change transmission fluid and filter,just add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change. never had problems w.mine. but firm beleiver in lucas oil and transmission and fuel treatments. just trying to see how far i can go w/mine. the lucas treatment added to your fluid and transmission fluid and filter change frees up stuck valves in the transmission. sounds alot like you may have a stuck valve body in the transmission to me.pull your transmission fluid dip stick,this is going to sound strange but go with me for a second please, does the fluid smell burnt? do'nt be scared to put it on your finger and sniff it. if it smells like burnt expletitive,then it needs replaced and filter too. just please add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change,you will not regret it. the treatment [lucas] will cost an extra $11.00 onto the fluid change,trust me, you will not regret it!fluid changes are a must for ford explorers 4x4 don't know why,but they demand baby formula. lucas,i've found is that formula. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here 24/7 for you 7days

My 03 Kia Spectra will not go into gear. I want


the fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan located under the car. make sure you buy a transmission filter kit so you can change the filter and gasket. the trans fluid is added to the dipstick tube, where you have located the dipstick.

00' Kia Spectra. Change auto transmission fluid


You would need to take the pan off to access the "filter" but you would be ok just to do an oil change. Unless there is a problem auto boxes are very clean inside.

Can a transmission flush on a 2001 Hyundai XG300 be a DIY job? If so what step should be follow in doing so?


If your going to just do a transmission flush without replacing the filter, the cost is around $75.00 at most speed shop like jiffy lube. The cost for the transmission oil and filter replaced is around $100.00 and worth it's while and time. DIY, your going to have to raise the car to get under it and have a tray large and wide enough to hold up to 4 liters. Undo the the bolts that hold the transmission pan and let the transmission to leak out, once the transmission fluid stopped leaking out. Drop the pan and remove the filter from the transmission valve body. Replace the filter, clean the pan, and clean the transmission and pan contact point before replace the gasket and placing the pan back. bring the car back down and add 4 liters of transmission oil and idle the car running the transmission through the gears. check the fluid level and add if needed, go for a test drive and check the transmission fluid once again and add if needed. Good luck, keep me posted. Be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

1999 gmc suburban rpms go up but car does,nt go any faster


Have you checked the transmission fluid level?  Also, have you changed the transmission filter?  I would definately do these two before I would take it to a shop.  A typical transmission filter/gasket kit costs about $10-15 for that truck.  And the transmission fluid will run around $2-4 per quart.
Changing the filter is easy.  You will just take the transmission pan off and then pull the filter out, replace the filter, and then replace the pan gasket.  Then bolt it all back up and fill it with fluid!  It's that simple.

Ya but if nissan planted filter's in there tansmission's then they would grow,right?NISSAN does not install filter's in the tran's.It is a permanent screen and luckily for people all I have to do is undo the plug from the pan and drain while hot, screw the screw the plug back in and funnel your new fluid back in to the tran from the dip stick tube(my 04 sentra 1.8s 4speed automatic takes 5 quart's but holds 6-type D nissan fluid from dealer,change about every 15 to 20 thousand miles to keep it clean and thin.Remember trans fluid is petroleum and get's hot burn's and thicken's making restriction's on rotating metal).My car has over 90,000miles and shift's perfect

Cannot locate transmission filter or instructions to replace


ok, here's the deal. there are 2 types of transmissions one with an external oil filter( kinda looks like the oil filter for the engine) and then there is the other type of transmission that was produced later on the 4 cylinder engines that doesnt have a removable filter. it does have a screen that is not servicable, it can only be replaced during the rebuild of the transmission. this design is supposed to be "back flushed" to remove all debris. Most good transmission shops have this type of system that pressureizes the system and does this.

If your gonna do this on your own, what you will need to do is buy 4-5 quarts of transmission fluid, drain the oil from the pan on the front of the engine, reinstall it, add the fluid, drive for 30 min, and then repeat the process.
