The only way the oil wont go down the tube is blocked unlikely the breather is blocked if u are using a funnel lift it away from the tube to allow air out [ DONT START ENGINE UNLESS U HAVE AT LEAST 5 LITRES OF OIL OR U WILL CAUSE DAMAGE ]

Why won't transmission engage any gear?


would check trans fluid level , if that is ok, it is possible that the trans has internal damage and will need to be rebuilt or replaced

2004 ford explorer in gear but won't go


Is trans fluid at proper level? Will reverse work; or nothing? There are several possibilities most common being a bad transmission, if the fluid is OK and the drive shaft is still connected. I need more information. If it did run low on fluid, this is not normal. Adding fluid may make it work; but it will just leak back out from wherever. Also, if it ran so low that it wouldn't move, it needs an immediate repair as well as a flush, full and filter change.

It's not a rear end problem. It's a transmission problem. Check your transmission fluid level and condition. If it's low try adding fluid until its full and try driving. If that doesn't fix it take your car to a good transmission reapir shop.

I have a 1997 chevy 1500. The Trans (4l60e) is bad i think


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Secondly, put a line pressure gauge (or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).
Slow, slipping or no reverse: “lo-reverse” clutches are worn out, fluid leak in the reverse apply circuit, or broken sunshell. It is possible to remedy a fluid problem by removing the checkball from its cage in the case in the rear of the trans may help (must remove valvebody), or adding a high-viscosity additive such as Lucas Transmission additive or other seal restorer product. May also have worn boost valve (can replace in the pan).
Soft shifting, gradual performance degradation: Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).
No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is broken.
1-2 or 2-3 shift is slow/soft above part throttle: Trans is on its way out. R&R
Good luck and start with checking your transmission fluid level. Thank you for using Fixya

Transmisson ingages in reverse car won't move


your transmission is slipping when its cold. when it warms up the parts inside expand and take up the slack that's caused by the clutches and bands inside being worn. start by checking the trans. fluid level and condition. if it's low, add fluid. if it's brown or black or sparkly, your transmission is junk and needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
