Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Blown gasket on trany drained it and cleaned everything, not sure how to fill it. Cant start it while its empty. what to do?

I thought it was the oil pan, thick fluid all over under motor. Figured out it was the transmission gasket. Took it off and didn't have to hit it with a mallet just started pouring out. Now just wondering how to get the fluid back in. Also there is a filter in there that I need to change?

SOURCE: Exploded transmission 48 hours after ATF flush

I see no correlation between the two events.  Things just happen on an old car.  I'd question spending money to fix the 11-year old car, or replace it with something newer and less miles.  I'd replace the car.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid/filter change in 2000 Honda Odyssey

I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

SOURCE: Transmission fluid flushing

In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

SOURCE: no dipstick to put transmission fluid into

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

How to put in a tranny filter on a 91 gmc 4x4 4.3l blazer


You remove the transmission pan and then remove the old filter. Make sure you remove the old seal out of the valve body and install new filter with new seal and re-install pan. Fill with fluid and you are done.

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?


GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

I am going to attemp to change the tranny fluid in my '92 Taurus. Where is the drain plug underneath and is it true that it takes 12.8 quarts of fluid? Is there anything else I should know before I start?


well first theres no plug to drain fluid, you will have to remove the trany pan, the pan gasket and filter need to be replaced,next thing is that it doesnt hold 12.8 qts, thats only if it was dry empty,just dropping the pan doesnt get all the oil out, the converter is still full and the lines and cooler,i would replace the filter and pan gasket then take to a garage and have a bg trany service done, this service gets 100% of the old oil out,your doing a drain and fill, this only takes about 6 qts,good luck.

Is it the water pump


look to see if it is coming from passenger side,I have the exact same car I personally drive and similar thing happened to mine a couple years ago and it was waterpump but if you overheated it and drove it you may have a blown head gasket.Make sure your oil has not turned to chocolate milk. thats sort of what it looks like

2000 Toyota Celica coolant reservior empty


I hate to tell you this but its possible...

You have a leak. Look around on the driveway and try to determine if you have an external leak as opposed to an internal leak. If you see no coolant on the ground, suspect a blown head gasket. Do not continue to drive this car in this condition. If it does indeed have a blown head gasket, serious engine damage will occur.

Check your exhaust for white smoke. Chances are good you have a blown head gasket and coolant is leaking into the engines combustion chambers and is essentially burning off. Also check your oil, if it looks like caf mocha, this will confirm coolant is leaking into the oil via the blown head gasket
