Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid

Should I have lost transmission fluid if my 2003 intrepid overheated?

We replaced the radiator but my transmission fluid was low so I added a 1/2 a quart yesterday and then had to add another 1/2 today...should that be necessary? Or do I have transmission problems too?

If the underneath of your transmissions and motor are really greasy and dirty. There's probably a leak from a bad gasket. I would suggest changing your trans fluid and filter (gasket comes with filter usually).

Transmission fluid hose burst, fixed it, add fluid now the car won't move...

Two litres? Unless you are outside the USA, transmission fluid generally comes in quart containers. If you only added 2 quarts, yes, it's very possible the fluid level is low. However, you don't want to add too much. There should be a dip stick for checking fluid level. Run the vehicle until the engine is good a warm, about 15-20 minutes, and then check the fluid level. Add as needed. But remember, don't add too much. Add a little at a time, as you get close to full.

Transmission light wont go off

It looks like the transmission level sensor is burned out. You know that the transmission wasn't empty but it was only quart, to be exact. Replace the sensor!

Adding transmission fluid

Add transmission fluid to the same tube you check the transmission fluid level. It will resemble the oil dipstick tube, only it's a larger tube that will accommodate a funnel to add additional fluid. It's important not to overfill the recommended level so try adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is withing the markings on the transmission fluid dipstick.

1995 Chevy Astro Van transmission fluid level? How many quarts should be in there with a 4.3 engine?

From a totally dry condition with Torque Converter empty the book indicates 4 Quarts. The best way to check is to add 1 pint if you are at the low marks with the engine warm and idling in Park. If you have drained the Transmission to change the filter, start by adding a quart and then check level and add a pint then check level, continue the process of adding fluid a pint at a time and checking level until you get the level to a place between the marks. Drive the vehicle for a few blocks, check and add fluid as needed.

How do I add transmission fluid to my 1992 Saturn SL2?

with the car parked on a level surface start the engine. Remove the transmission dipstick and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out again. The level should be somewhere between the cold and hot markings. If it is low that start by adding 1/2 quart through the same tube that the dipstick goes into. You may have to purchase a small funnel that will fit into the opening.

After adding the fluid wait a couple of minutes for the fluid to settle out of the tube. Recheck the level. If still low continue to add in 1/2 quart increments until the fluid shows up in the cold level area.

The engine should be running and in park the hole time your are doing this.

There is a hose hanging and it seems to be leaking transmission fluid. Now it will not go in reverse. Is my transmission savable?

Look under the car and see where the hose came from and re-attach it. There are three lines there. Two are cooler lines (attach to the side of the case and run to the radiator), one is a vent line (and should not leak fluid) Check the transmission level and add whatever is necessary to bring the level back to full. While adding fluid, keep checking underneath to make sure what you are adding is not going on the ground. If the transmission is full when you first check it then you need a transmission shop to run a diagnostics test to determine the cause of the malfunction. If the trans fluid is very low and filling it gets reverse back then change the fluid and add a quart of lucas trans conditioner and it may help. But....if it was driven low for a considerable amount of time it will need a rebuild.

Transmission light on, but no problems with the transmission, is the fluid low?

Hard to know. You fill it to the fill mark. If it is 2 quarts low, put 2 quarts in it. 1 pint, add 1 pint.

Transmission fluid

put in 3 quarts then run it until the trans fluid is hot and recheck, DONOT OVERFILL! u will most likely end up adding about 1 1/2 more quarts to top it off. Add the additional fluid slowly and recheck often.
