Where is the vti transmission filter located at on my 2004 saturn vue awd 4cyl 2.2


Transmission filters are located inside the transmission. You will need to remove the transmission pan (do one corner, loosen but do not remove all bolts, and drain as much fluid as possible. Then remove the bolts (while holding pan up) and slow lower. Drain the rest of the fluid. Let any excess fluid drip off the bottom of the transmission into your drain pan.
Remove the filter (should pull straight down). Install new filter; Install new gasket, and put pan back up.
The best way to install a new gasket is to use gasket sealer. Put a small bead around the pan (where bolts go through; all the way around). Apply gasket to fit pan, and let sit for about 15 minutes. Once you have done this, ready four bolts for the corners (make sure filter is installed). Once the four corners are secure, ensure each hole is aligned to the gasket so that you can insert and thread each bolt. Hand tighten each bolt for now until all bolts are in. Once they are all in, tighten every other bolt (snug, not forceably tight). Once you return to the starting bolt (usually start on one corner bolt), do the same for the remaing bolts, snugging them. Once you return to the starting bolt again - keep going on each bolt, but only turning slightly to ensure each is snug. Do not overtighten as this can cause a leak; the gasket will smush outward and inward causing a small gap. All fluids will travel the path of least resistance.
Fill Transmission to specified amount ( this vehicle should be about 5-6 quarts ****** fluid) - inquire with parts dealer for details and exact amount.

LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY.BUY 10 QUARTS .TO BE ON SAFE SIDE SO YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH FLUID ON HAND. IF YOU DONT HAVE NO TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY. ADD 7.5 QUARTS FLUID.WAIT FOR 2 MINUTES.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK. SHOULD BE ON THE FULL MARK.CRANK VECHICLE UP.LET IDLE FEW MINUTES CHECK TRANSMISSION DIP FLUID LEVEL IF DROPPED ADD LITTLE MORE.WHILE ENGINE IDLING GETTING WARM UP. KEEP EYE ON FLUID LEVEL.WHEN FLUID LEVEL STOP DROPPING. APPLY BRAKES HOLD FOOT ON BRAKES SHIFT THROUGH ALL GEARS TWO TIMES.

Transmission a mechanic said a hose rotted and the transmission died?? how can i fix it without replacing the tranny


Although this is may not work depending on transmission wear and tear, you will need to do this if you plan to replace transmission any way. Replace the damaged hose. Next I would get a transmission filter kit. This is a simple kit that is sold at part stores and includes filter and gasket. You will need to buy transmission fluid and a gasket sealant. Jack up the vehicle, drain the transmission fluid by loosening the transmission pan, if you need help finding this check the gasket shape you purchased. The pan will most likely be stuck a little from the previous gasket sealant. Carefully pry it apart with a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, transmission fluid will go when pan is dropped, so, be careful in placement of pan and how much you loosen all bolts. when pan is dropped check for metal shavings inside. If you have none things are looking good. Remove filter most oftenly attached with phillips head screws. Check this filter for debris and metal. If you do not spot anything serious by now, replace using new filter. Ensure you have a clean surface for the new gasket after removal of old gasket. Once you have this done, add a thin layer of sealant to pan and place gasket on top of it. Apply another thin layer of sealant to the other side of gasket and reinstall to transmission using correct tightening sequence and torque. These bolts do not need to be overly tight. Most leaks happen from overtightening bolts to pan. Usually a lil over hand tight is fine, but, check with you parts store. Add fluids to proper level and then you will be able to test the transmission out. I know it sounds like alot, but, it cheaper than buying a new transmission if you don't have to.

Describe how to change transmission fluid and filter in 1996 jeep grand cherokee straight 6


Assume since you say filter it is automatic.

Before starting the job obtain the fluid and filter for your vehicle. The parts store can provide you the right kind and amount of fluid based on Make Year Model. Also obtain new gasket.

Transmission must be cool.
Raise vehicle on jack stands.
Locate the fluid pan. Remove the side and front bolts.
Place a drain pan under the transmission capable of holding 8 quarts (two gallons).
Loosen the rear pan mounting bolts. Fluid should start to drain around the pan at the front. If not the pan is stuck. Pry it gently at the front with a flexible putty knife.
Once fluid is draining you can eventually take the rear bolts all the way out and pour off the balance of fluid.

Clean the gasket mounting surface on the transmission.

Clean the fluid pan completely.

Remove the old filter. It will be held with screws (bolts).

Install new filter.

Assure surfaces are still clean. Put new gasket in place, and install pan, tightening the bolts (screws) gradually until correct torque for your transmission is reached.

Take car off jack stands.

Add the correct amount of fluid for your vehicle through the filler tube. (Parts store can look this up when you are there).

Start with engine in park. Maintain idle, don't race engine.
Shift to each range setting, and then back to neutral.

Watch for leaks - if occur will need to repeat the procedure but the filter can be left in place.

I just want to know where you add the transmission fluid in a dodge durango? i can't find it


Drive the Durango for 15 to 20 minutes to warm up the transmission fluid. When the fluid is warm, it will drain better and remove more contaminants from the engine. Raise and support the front of the Durango on ramps or jack stands. Place a large drain pan beneath the transmission.

Loosen the transmission pan retaining bolts with a socket wrench. Remove the bolts, but leave one at each of the four corners of the transmission pan. Slowly loosen the remaining bolts a little at a time.Fluid should begin to drain from the seal on the transmission pan. If the pan is stuck, break the seal by gently prying it loose or tapping it with a rubber mallet.

Support the pan with one hand and remove the bolts on one side of the pan. Allow the transmission fluid to drain until it stops. Remove the two last bolts. Remove the pan and drain the rest of the fluid.

Remove the three screws that hold the filter onto the transmission. Note that these screws may be Torx style. Install a new transmission fluid filter.

Clean the transmission pan and the magnet with solvent. Remove the old gasket material from the transmission pan. You may need a scraper to remove it all. Clean the mating surfaces with a lint-free cloth soaked in solvent. Let the pan air dry.

Put the new gasket on the pan and align them. Remove the gasket, apply a few drops of adhesive on the pan and replace the gasket. Realign the gasket before the adhesive dries.

Replace the pan onto the transmission and replace the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in a crisscross fashion to 150-inch pounds with a torque wrench. Return the Durango to level ground.




Refill the transmission with new fluid a little at a time, while checking the level often. Continue to add transmission fluid until it passes the "Add" mark on the dipstick, but doesn't pass the "Full" mark.

Start the engine, shift the transmission through all the gears and place the gear selector back in "Park." Recheck the transmission fluid level and add more fluid if needed. Don't overfill the transmission.

Replace the dipstick into the filler tube. Turn off the engine.

I want to add transmission oil to my van but i cannot find transmission nut please help


There is not a nut on the transmission oil pan like what you find on an oil pan. You can either take your Van to a auto service department and get a super transmission flush (about $60-$80) which I do not recommend, as they do not change out the filter or gasket. OR:
Remove the 10-mm bolts on the pan, and change the fluid, filter and gasket yourself. Be careful as that pan is filled with fluid and will drop and splash quickly. I use a large drip pan to catch all the fluid. Add fluid slowly using a funnel, poured into the tube where the dip stick is in. When it is surely on the dip stick, I start the engine and let is circulate a few minutes. Then check the level and add more. When the engine is at normal operating temperature, I aim for near that top notch on the dip stick. Do NOT Overfill!
41TE (4-speed) has 9.1 quarts. 31TH (3-speed) has 8.5 quarts.
HINTS:
Make sure you clean both the pan, and pan-to-gasket area.(I use acetone) as well as the gasket-to-transmission area before installing the new gasket.
Tighten the pan bolts to 15 ft-lbs.
Filter to valve body srews (if equipped) 45 in-lbs.
Good Luck and let me know if this helped!
