Bought a 2002 Jeep liberty limited had small hole in transmission pan shifted fine changed pan and ten quarts of fluid now shifts 1-2 fine 3and over like neutral

Trans fluid is measured by pints ! So if 2 pints are equal to quart , you only need 5 quarts if it has 3.7 6 cylinder . And 3 quarts for the 2.4 4cylinder ! You may have added 5 quarts too many .

A 2002 Buick Rendezvous FWD transmission fluid change how much fluid do I need? I also discovered leakage, Do I change the gasket and pan as I am about to change the ATF filter?

Is the pan gasket leaking ? You would normally get a new gasket with the filter so the gasket gets changed too.
Most models hold about 4-6 quarts of ATF. I would start with 4 and add until the trans is full. Your torque converter does not get drained.

1989 Buick Regal Limited Transmission Fluid?

I'm not sure I am following your problem.
A transmission holds 10-15 quarts including the torque converter. When you drain the fluid you are changing about 4 quarts of the full amount.
Once you fill the transmission to the full mark on the dipstick, you should not be adding more fluid unless there is a leak. Or if the vac modulator is damaged and allowing fluid to be pulled into the engine. The fluid is checked with the engine running in park.

My 2002 Trailblazer is using a LOT of transmission fluid! I am having to put half a quart in a WEEK! Could someone PLEASE help me?? What should I do? I just bought this thing!

Transmissions dont "use" fluid. If you are replacing half a quart a week you have a leak somewhere.. Try tightening the transmission pan bolts. If this doesnt stop the leak you may have a bad pan gasket. There are also two small tubes running from the ****** to the radiator for cooling. One or both may be leaking. Put a liece of cardboatd or wood under your truck to catch drips. This will help you to locate where it is leaking from.

Should I have lost transmission fluid if my 2003 intrepid overheated?

If the underneath of your transmissions and motor are really greasy and dirty. There's probably a leak from a bad gasket. I would suggest changing your trans fluid and filter (gasket comes with filter usually).

How much trans fluid is in a 2006 Buick Rendezous? I supposedly had a transmission flush etc but the car Slammed into gear, I checked the fluid level and nothing registered on the stick. I put in 2...

When changing the fluid and filter, maybe 4-4.5 qts. Fluid flushes are just a way for quickie lubes to flush your wallet. You should never have any fluid flushed unless its required by the car manufacturer, on the scheduled maintanance list.

2003 rendezvous transmission fluid change how much fluid do i need?

  • A full transmission fluid change, like as in a flush, requires 9.5 quarts of DEXIII/M transmission fluid.
  • If you are going to be dropping the pan at home to swap the filter and gasket you will not loos near full capacity of transmission fluid. For this you may loose 3 quarts (give or take a bit). 4 Quarts on hand would be plenty for this case.
  • Don't forget to (with you foot on the brake) run the transmission through the every gear for a few seconds to fill the pockets before you check the level. if you do drop the pan.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do u add transmission fluid on a buick lacrosse 2006

The only way I know of to add transmission fluid to a transmission is through the same tube that the dip-stick is in. Add about 1/4 quart at a time. Usually, it is added while the engine is warm, idling in park or in neutral. It should tell you on the dipstick itself. Be sure it is on level ground. Do not overfill, or it will leak forever.
If the transmission level is low, then it must have leaked out in the first place. Try to find a leak by parking over night on fresh newspaper, and observe the paper the next day. If it is towards the front, then it might be the tubes going to the radiator, which cools the tranny oil right along with the engine coolant. If it is in the middle of the engine compartment, then it is the front seal, a major repair, so just maintain the level until the end of the car's lifetime. If it is towards the end of the engine compartment, then it is just an output seal, an easy fix by a competent mechanic.
Most transmission shops, as well as brake shops, will give you a free inspection. Sometimes, Wall Mart will too.
Good Luck.

Trans-axle fluid cooling ,all fluid gone

If the trans. fluid gets down , even a quart, it usually starts to slip or not shift right. Check the fluid with the engine running and warmed up on level ground (in park). If it's low start adding fluid about 1/2 a quart at a time and keep checking it. Watch for leaks while you're filling it. If no leaks are found take it for a test drive and check the fluid again.
