Location and access to Transmission Filter to change Trans. oil and Filter


Hi Lb,
My car is RX300 1999 and has the same problem. I changed the fluid 2 years ago after the trans slip and lost the shift. Afterwards it worked for another 2 years. But recently it doesn't work again even I change fluid and put Stop Slip additive to the trans. I was told the trans has to be rebuilt. So changing fluid and filter can help to maintain the trans for sure and can prevent problem. But if the trans has already worn a lot, it can't help at last.

2006 dodge grand caravan transmission fluid low but cannot find a leak


check your rear main seal. Also try changing your trans fluid, trans filter, and your transmission pan seal. I recommend you put lucas transmission oil in it and a quart of the Lucas Stop Slip and leak sealer

Shifts from first to second hard and shiftsto third but starts slipping if you baby the gas it goes to drive and slips really bad but it doesnt slip in first or second


Change the transmission fluid, as well as the filter.....but add some Lucas stop slip to the new transmission fluid let it sit for a day the drive it.....3-7 days later you should notice a difference.

Just had transmission serviced and 3 days later it just all of a sudden quit working ?


That is what happens when you fail to change transmission
fluid every 3 years,then believe doing so, is a fix

It will slip worse, as you found out

You should have been asked a lot of questions &
the car road tested or the fluid should not have
been changed

You went to the wrong place & now may have a
major repair to do

Transmission shift from 1st to 2nd has hesitation


Look for vacuum leaks. There are tons of hoses, replace dried and cracked ones....

The trans shift issue that you describe seems that the trans is being told to hold back the shift, there is a unit at the end of the vacuum tube, AT the trans, called a modulator. They have a rubber diaphram inside that fails and then trans fluid gets sucked into the engine, via this vac. hose. Pull it off and see if any trans fluid comes out...Should be ZERO.

Also, your vehicle must have regular trans service, especially you must change the FILTER. Disk material eventually clogs the filter, then trans fails really fast.

You may consider having a quick lube shop do the trans service, they use a machine that pumps new fluid in while unit is running, totally flushing converter, cooler,and lines...but DO replace the filter.

To be fair, the service suggestion has nothing to do with yoru complaint, necessarily...

Transmission started smoking going up hill, got us home, but 3 days later I went to move the car and the trans went out? meaning when I step on the gas it doesnt accelorate in any gear D over D or 1st....


It needs to be rebuilt or changed. Your best bet would probably get a used one at a scrapyard and replace it. Most scrapyards will provide some warranty, usually 30 days. Hope this helps.

TRANSMISSION slips between gears


slipping or flairing between (during shifts) is usually the result of internal seal failure inside trans. you can check fluid level, and / or change trans fluid... if changing, any excessive metal debris or non metallic flakes in the pan indicate need for rebuild. Shifts are controlled by solenoids not by vacuum.

Most likely a fluid change and the new Dexron 6 trans fluid will cure this issue, make sure to do a full service, fluid and filter. Note, Dexron VI replaces all previous Dexron fluids and I know from personnel experience it works great, longer trans life and smoother shifts and less problems like yours.
