To change the transmission oil drop the transmission bottom pan, replace the filter and then reinstall the pan, torque the bolts to 12 foot pounds (tighten in an "X" pattern) and then refill transmission with 2 quarts of fluid and check level, continue to add until fluid just touches the end of the dipstick then run the engine until fluid is hot to the touch, this takes about 30 minutes at high idle, then and only then top off the transmission fluid to marks ion the dipstick.

SOURCE: Change Automatic Transmission oil

Honda's are drain and refill only.The filter is internal inside the transmission and can only be accessed during an overhaul.On the bottom of the transmission case is a drain plug that is gold in color.It is removed using a 3/8" ratchet,or extension with a ratchet atached.There is also an aluminum washer that must be kept track of and reinstalled with the drain plug or a leak will occur.After draining the trans,and reinstalling the drain plug,Honda genuine automatic transmission fluid,or an equivalent with a highly fricition modified additive must be used,or harsh shifting can occur.I would install about 3 quarts after draining,and start checking the level at this point.The fluid level is checked with the engine OFF,on level ground.

Was this a preexisting problem if not verify that the trani fluid type was correct. It should have been dexron or Dexron 2 fluid(not mercon products) check the fluid level over filling can be just as bad as underfilling)

SOURCE: Isuzu Trooper 1997. Automatic Transmission holds gears too long.

Their is a power and normal drive in trooper's power for pulling a trailer and normal for normal driving. The power drive only changes gear at higher R.P.M. Their is a switch on the plastic cover under the handbrake with p & n their is a light in the dash as well. If you are not aware of this switch then just needs switching over if you are aware of it then its probably the fuse to activate it or a wiring problem with it, Cheers

Testimonial: "I know the switch. But nothing changes when I switch back and forth. No light on the dashboard either. I don't know if it is in normal or power."

SOURCE: I plan on changing my transmission fluid &

Hi:
Most vehicles do not have a transmission drain plug. You must remove the bottom pan from your transmission to drain the fluid and change the filter. Remember to replace the pan gasket when you do this, if a new gasket doesn't come with your new filter.

How do i change my auto tranny oil on 1991 subaru


THere is a dran plug on the left side of the tranmission oil pan. These transmission hold alot of oil and it could be very hot, so be careful. You need to change the filter too and these are quite expensive. When re-filling
I Use care not to exceed the upper limit level.
I ATF level varies with temperature. Remember
that the addition of fluid to the upper limit
mark when the transmission is cold will result
in the overfilling of fluid.
4) Fluid temperature rising speed
I By idling the engine
Time for temperature rise to 60°C (140°F) with
atmospheric temperature of 0°C (32°F): More than
25 minutes
<Reference>
Time for temperature rise to 30°C (86°F) with
atmospheric temperature of 0°C (32°F): Approx. 8
minutes
I By running the vehicle
Time for temperature rise to 60°C (140°F) with
atmospheric temperature of 0°C (32°F): More than
10 minutes
5) Method for checking fluid level upon delivery or
at periodic inspection
Check fluid level after a warm-up run of approx. 10
minutes. During the warm-up period, the automatic
transmission functions can also be checked.

Hey their does the 2007 Chrysler sebing have gear oil that needs


As far as I know there is no gear oil to change on most front wheel drive cars with and automatic. If you are changing the transmission fluid make sure you put the right stuff back in it. Chrysler has there own fluid specs. If it has a manual transmission the the differential is built into the transaxel and there should be just the one gearcase. There again make sure you use the right oil check the owners manual.

It should be fine, as long as you topped it up again. If there's no sign of transmission fluid in your driveway it's not leaking. Keep on trucking!
