SOURCE: Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not

75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.

SOURCE: when i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn Vue WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID REFILL

If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps

2005 Acura MDX leaked transmission fluid out of breather oil on top of engine


oil out of the breather is an indictation of excessive oil
if it drives as would be expected, there is nothing wrong with the transmission so move away from the mechaic who stated that ir was "fried"
at 60 mph the rpms should be in the vicinity of 3000-3200 rpms and go up about 250 rpms for every 10mph over that
have the fault codes read or take it to an accredited transmission professional shop and have the bands and clutches adjusted

Your transmission has failed & needs to come
out & be rebuilt or replaced

Is the fluid full? If so then the transmission has failed and you will need a rebuild.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only


When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

I have a honda cr-v automatic gear box it drives but it can't go reverse when you put the reverse gear. what is the problem?


Has the Transmission fluid been changed every 30,000 with Honda ATF-Z1?

If some one has put in GM Dexron III in it instead, the transmission may not shift properly and it can damage the transmission over time.

Also if some Express/Quick Lub place has flushed your Honda Transmission Dexron III or any type of Flushing agents, it's probally going to have to be replaced. Google "flushing Honda transmission" or MSN under "Express lub Transmission flush Fraud". Those back flow flushers systems damage the internal valves of many modern transmissions, both import and domestic and have NEVER been recommended.

Suggest taking it by a Honda Dealership or a aftermarket Honda/Acura ASE Certified Shop.

if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem

Transmission fluid is leaking and will only go in drive. When trying to put in reverse will not go.


You really probably shouldn't be driving this vehicle right now. If it is leaking transmission fluid, and will not go into reverse, it means there is not enough transmission fluid in the vehicle to perform that task. Check the fluid. If there is plenty of fluid inside and it will still not go into reverse, you are looking at a new transmission. Whenever you feel your vehicle try to slip gears as you go down the road, you need to take it in to be looked at immediately to prevent things like having to get a new transmission. You may not have a huge problem yet, they may be able to stop the leak, but if you continue to try and drive it, it will result in a new trans.
