SOURCE: 00' Kia Spectra. Change auto transmission fluid

If your gonna do it yourself, then, sure replace the filter as well. If you have one of those exchange machines do it, the machine, in my experience, gives a reading while it's exchanging. Apparently the lower the reading, the less flow thru the system, usually meaning the filter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My brother has 2001 kia spectra, the battery goes

There is probably a weak diode in the alternator; this will cause the battery to drain slowly and will often not turn on the indicator on the dashboard.
If you want to get your hands dirty, remove the negative battery cable first (always!) Remove the heavy lead from the alternator terminal that goes to the positive terminal of the battery. Reconnect the negative battery terminal.
If the car starts mornings, a bad alternator is pretty much confirmed but you can't drive real far with no alternator to charge the battery.
Any chain auto parts store will test your alternator free but I don't know if that is in or out of the car.
BTW, you can buy a digital meter for under $20 many places today and most will have a 10 ampere range that will allow you to check for a current drain of the kind you now have which is probably under the 10 amps.
One final item; recently the courtesy light switch on the passenger side rear door of my wife's Jeep recently decided to not quite reach anymore and the battery was drained twice before I noticed that 'door ajar' light was telling us that in advance. Even an amp or two will drag a battery down given time.

I have a strong reverse in my 1998 blazer's auto transmission but no foward gears work. Do I need a complete overhaul or change the filter and solenoid?


After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.

Transmission will not go into any gear


Stick a magnet on your pedal and if it doesn\'t stick then it\'s the OEM pedal and should be replaced with the steel pedal.

Pontiac had this \'awesome\' idea to make the clutch pedal out of aluminum and after 20 years the pedal actually starts to bend and bottom out on the floorboard before giving you all of the travel necessary to disengage the clutch. Fierostore.com sells a replacement pedal for about 50 bucks. This is the first place I would start since it is what fixed my 1986 Fiero GT 4spd.

If the problem is still manifesting then move onto bleeding/replacing the clutch master/slave cylinders.

I\'ve also seen the brackets on the transmission that the shift and select cables attach to have worn out and introduced a bunch of slop in the shifter, but this is less common.

I\'ve also seen the clutch release bearing seize because of a broken release bearing fork slipping around the collar and grabbing the freely rotating part of the bearing. This then leads to pressure plate fingers breaking off and soon no matter how hard you push, the clutch won\'t disengage. Tranny has to come out. Seen this once.

And last but not least, I\'ve also seen a nut on the inside of the transmission shift/select shaft come loose and leave the tranny stuck in the 3/4 fork. Seen this one time 5 years ago.

Good luck,

Rebel Faggioli

Auto transmission clunking noise when putting into reverse & foward or taking out


the noise is the free play in the side gears of the diff and is normal in a diff that has some miles
there is a problem if the pinion moves forward or back when turning the shaft
check for "U" joints as if they are failing you will get the noise when changing direction
other areas to check are suspension rubbers and transmission rubber mounts

I have an 2000 honda accord ex v6 3.0 with reverse gear


IT sounds like your reverse gear is going out, or that you need to have filter replaced my best advise is have your transmission checked out by a transmission shop as soon as possible.

Reverse and no foward gears


It will probably have to be towed in and checked out. This can be a total failure of forward gears and necassary for knowledgable person to diagnose,< if you decide to two use a dolly that you can rent about anywhere not strap because it can cause even more damage to transmission pulling this way>. It could be simple,but needs diagnosed by someone who can tell you properly.
