I have a 2003 chevy malibu, the transmission only slipped for 2 days. I added lucas transmission fluid. As soon as i went to drive then put in park now my car will not go into any gear except for...


The Lucas has changed the thickness of your required transmission fluid, or you have overfilled your system. However much you added needed to come out prior to adding the Lucas. If you didn't take any out first, then do that and your problem should go away. If not, then get it flushed at a local car repair shop for around a hundred bucks and that should get it back to the right thickness and the correct flyers d level. Good luck

Transmition is slipping


2nd gear is the fail safe gear, that car will run in second if there is a transmission problem to get you to your local repair shop, sound like you need a transmission you can check the fluid level and try adding a product called LUCAS transmission conditioner to try and help revitalize your transmission, sometimes this works.

It sounds like you either have a dirty filter, or a solenoid is faulty in the transmission. Change the fluid and filter, put some Lucas transmission oil in it and see if that resolves the issue. If the solenoid is dirty then it will cause the transmission to shift improperly, the Lucas will clean it.

I have no revrevs it seems to run great in the forwords gear I have no cash at all need a fix bad


I don't have good news. The fords will lose either forward gears or reverse when transmission is going out depending on model. You can try an additive like Lucas transmission repair ($12) or gunk trans sealer and conditioner ($6). I have had good luck with both for slipping trans. New fluid and filter will run about another $30 and give you the best shot at saving your trans. But, there is no guarantee.

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

Transmissiom shifts hard from 2 to 3 and no overdrive


This stuff works GREAT! You can buy it at any local auto part store for about $12. I added it to my 2001 Sonata that was shifting had from 3 to 4 (on the highway). I copied this info from there website. Google it and you'll find tons of reviews, all of which are good.

What Is Lucas Transmission Fix?

Lucas Transmission Fix is a thermal stable blend of petroleum extracted additives. It contains no solvents or anything else that would be harmful to an automatic transmission. It contains a seal conditioner to help stop leaks around seals. It contains a polymetric film which is designed to stop worn bands from slipping. It allows the the transmission fluid to run cooler and controls foaming. It mixes with all automatic transmission fluids. It also contains lubricity agents for smooth, precise shifting. Lucas transmission fix extends existing transmission fluid life up to 3x.

What can Lucas Transmission Fix do for my vehicle?

  • Stops automatic transmission slip
  • Cleans and lubricates sticking valves for smoother shifting
  • Stops leakage around seals
  • Extends fluid life up to 3x
  • Extends the life of your transmission substantially
  • Protects your transmission under all severe service applications

How much Lucas Transmission Fix do I need?

One 24 ounce bottle is all you need. Lucas Transmission Fix will not fix a mechanically unsound transmission. If you have slipping and/or shifting issues this product will help.

Automatic trans slips 92 ford explorer


I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.

Transmission slips


reading what your saying, the problem started when you topped up with fluid; from experience what you have done is over filled the system which can build up high pressure and burst the oil seals and contamanate the drive plate.if your happy with what youve removed it might come back ok.but i suspect burst oil seal failure causing contamanation. thanks adrian
