SOURCE: Need to add transmission fluid to a 2004 Chevy Optra

It is annoying when people automatically assume there is a dipstick and that we are all dipsticks for not knowing. There have been a few cars that have come out on the market in the last ten years or so that have no dipsticks for the automatic transmissions. I also have the same issue with a slow leak from the line coming out of the rad. There is a spot on the front of the transmisson behind the rad hose where you can put in fluid. When you remove this bolt, fluid should come out..if not then you need to add some. To add it jack the front of car and using a funnel add some fluid until it pours out when the car is level. This may take several attempts. If you over fill it just let some drain out into a pan until your at a trickle then put the plug back in. This is the only solution I was able to come across for this. It seems to be a common issue with these cars as it the problem of the lines rusting out and into the radiator making it necessary to replace the lines and rad,

SOURCE: cant find transmission leak on 88 sierra 1500 2wd.

check your radiator and the over flow tank. If the transmission cooler is leaking in the radiator, you'll see the oil residue in the antifreeze and your going to have to flush the cooling system and replace the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps.

Did you transfer the speed sensor from your old rear end to the new unit, if not do it. Also didn't you change the gears in the rear end?

If the fluid is full and there are no external leaks, and it is still malfunctioning, I would try to flush and refill the transmission with new fluid to see if this rectifies the problem. If it doesn't, then there is a problem with a shift solenoid where the transmission will have to be reserviced and perhaps torn down and rebuilt again (I know this is dreadful). Try to see if there are any codes stored on the computer for the transmission that might point to a clue about the problem you are experiencing with it.

The transmission fluid, filter, shift solenoid needs to be inspected.That might be causing this problem of transmission not going in drive mode with gas pedal pressed down.------- The transmission needs to be taken apart and inspected, may be solenoid not opening/ closing properly or gears dried up and fluid is required. first inspect the transmission fluid and filter.if fluid is low, get the fluid changed and if filter is dirty, get it replaced.but if problem is same, then transmission needs to be torn out and inspected internally for worn out solenoids and clutch plates and valves.--------- this will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

TRANSMISSION SLIPS AND SHIFTS HARD, AUTOMATIC


Often the cause is low transmission fluid. Follow the instructions in your manual for checking it, because unlike checking your oil level, checking transmission fluid levels require that the vehicle is running.

Please, by no means do this check if you are uncomfortable doing it. Have a "gearhead" friend that you trust or a mechanic show you how.

Most manufacturers ask that you start the car, and while holding down the brake pedal, slowly shift through reverse and then all your forward gears, then place the car back in park.

Next (with the car running- CAREFUL!), find the transmission dipstick under the hood, pull it out, and wipe it off. Put the dipstick back in, pull it out and check the level. If it is low, you need to add some transmission fluid of the type specified by your manual into the dipstick hole (you will need an inexpensive transmission fill funnel), a little at a time, and keep checking it as described above until it is at the FULL mark.

It is important to note that the dipstick is marked FULL HOT (car is warmed up) and FULL COLD (car is NOT warmed up) because transmission fluid expands quite a bit and overfilling is bad for your tranny!

I own a Jeep with a Chrysler "straight six" engine (one of the best motors ever!) and my transmission slipped because of low fluid - I added a bottle of "transmission stop slip and stop leak" fluid to it and topped off the remainder with the proper type of transmission fluid, and now, seven months later, I do not lose any tranny fluid and it shifts great! The stop leak is more expensive, but IMHO it is worth the cost.

Please rate my solution when you get a chance!

If your transmission fluid or filter had any metal shaving or smelled "burnt" this would definately be a cause for the transmission from not shifting properly, also check to see that it is full and fill if necessary without overfilling which would ruin it quickly. Oil light coming on in old pontiacs and gm's is due to low oil pressure usually from a worn out oil pump or even a clogged screen on the oil pumps pick up tube. An old trick in transmissions was to take about an oz of dot3 brake fluid and add it to your transmission fluid to increase viscosity which helps slipping and minor seal leaks for a temporary fix. As to your vehicle wanting to stall out when you stop you may need a tune up or to advance the timing and increase your idle speed a little to correct that.

2000 bug tran slow to move can fluid be toped off ?


I'm assuming you have an automatic transmission, and I'm assuming the transmission is slow to shift.

Check the quality of the fluid in the transmission. If it is burned or contaminated, you should do a flush and fill with a filter replacement. If you see large particles in the fluid, especially metal, you may be looking at an overhaul.

If the fluid is clean but low, topping it off will likely solve the problem until it leaks down to that point again. Check your seals and gaskets.

A dirty filter can also cause a slow transmission because the fluid isn't circulating fast enough (inadequate hydraulic pressure downstream from the filter).

A related issue is a torque converter with worn internal seals. This will be evident when you step on the gas, the engine revs quickly, but the car just crawls. Excess torque converter slip is disastrous for gas mileage.

Where do I put the transmission fluid? The car does not accelerate at all when pressing on the gas pedal. Help, please!


Hello: If this is a rear wheel drive, you will find a dip stick under the hood towards the passenger side rear of the engine compartment remove the dip stick (should have a red handle) with a proper size funnel add transmission fluid through the tube for the dipstick. If it is a front wheel drive the procedure is the same except on the front wheel drive the dipstick is on the driver side toward the rear of the engine compartment. Check the fluid with the engine running. Do not overfill. Does the engine speed up when you press the accelerator? If so if the car moves after you put fluid in the transmission the you need to find out where the leak is and repair it. Use dextron3 transmission fluid

how easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.

How to prevent the transmission from damage
(The filter usually is screen type and can be cleaned when remove bottom cover. but this is not to be done at regular maintenance inspection.)
- Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn't matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious.
- Once in a while check the transmission fluid level and condition. Not all cars however have the automatic transmission dipstick, in some cars, for example, in late Volkswagen models, the transmission fluid can only be checked by the dealer. Consult with your owner's manual for details. If the transmission fluid level is too low, there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.
- Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner's manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
Also, keep in mind that an automatic transmission can not be drained completely - there is always some transmission fluid left inside the transmission (the torque converter, in the valve body, etc.) which means you only can change about %60 of the fluid at once. This is one more reason to change it more often.

- Use only the same type of the transmission fluid as specified in the owner's manual or on the dipstick. Some vehicles (e.g Dodge Caravan) are very sensitive to fluid type
- Never shift to the Reverse or Parking until the car comes to a complete stop.
- Never shift from the Parking mode when engine rpm is higher than normal idle.
- Always hold a brakes down when shifting from Parking.
- The automatic transmission can be damaged if towing with the drive wheels on the road. Always use a dolly or place powered wheels on the towing platform (if the vehicle is front wheel drive - tow it from the front leaving rear wheels on the road.
