Get it to the shop immediatly. If the tranny hasnt been damaged it will be way cheaper. You may want to tow it in. VW trannys are ridiculously expensive.

Radiator leaking transmission fluid


It sound like the transmission cooler inside the radiator tank is leaking into the coolant. You could try to fix it yourself, but without the proper tools the tanks are difficult to R&R. I'd try to take the radiator back to whoever you got it from.

2002 NISSIAN ALTIMA SHIFTS FINE UNTIL YOU COME TO A STOP THEN IT WONT SHIFT OUT OF FIRST UNTIL YOU TURN OFF THE CAR AND START AGIAN


I suggest replacing your MODULATOR VALVE on the transmission. This valve, under pressure from the engine, controls how the vehicle shifts. It is possible that the valve is good, and you just have a leak in the rubber hose that connects to the valve. I have not heard any issues from the 02' Nissan Altima about the transmission. If the valve is disconnected from the hose, you should notice some smoke either from the transmission, or under the hood by the exhaust.(NOT ALWAYS NOTICEABLE) Second, the automatic transmission has several internal components, that if one fails, can cause a cascade of issues. The TORQUE CONVERTER under cyntrifical force, converts the power from your engine, into a hydrolic pump that feeds the transmission. If this becomes clogged, the transmission will not shift correctly. A transmission flush might cure your shifting issue. During the flush, replace the transmission filter. As if his is clogged for any reason, it will not supply enough fluid to the transmission, and could cause permanent damage to the transmission.I hope this helps. Good luck.

Is a 02 passat wit white smoke the oil is fine bt smoks bad.


White smoke is water or coolant. Bluish smoke is oil. I would suspect a leaking head gasket. Hope this helps.

I recently had a 100,000 major service on my 2004 TL. Within a couple days I noticed a pronounced smell of burning oil. I have since noticed a puddle of oil has formed under the car and just today there...


It's probably OK to drive. I imagine they failed to get the oil filter properly seated and you're getting a little leak there. DO BE SURE to check the oil level before you drive it and add if necessary.

whenever you have a transmission leak you have to get it towed, sounds like you need to start looking for a replacement transmission at a wrecking yard

I have a 2002 vw passat. it has white smoke!!


Does the smoke occur all the time? If it is present just after start up and then goes away, it could be no problem at all. There is always some condensation in the exhaust at start up. It is more noticeable in cold weather.

However, if it is there constantly, and you are losing coolant, it could mean there is a headgasket problem. Watch your coolant level and watch your temperature gauge. If the coolant starts disappearing, and the car starts overheating, stop it immediately and get it to an auto repair shop. Driving a car with a bad headgasket can cause major engine damage.
