Sounds like the transmission pump is loosing its prime, thus it won't pump the fluid. i would recommend going to a transmission shop and having them connect their scan tool to tell you if this is the problem. chrysler 604 transmission pumps are notorious for failure. i have went through at 3 on my van from 80K-193K.

97 Lincoln Continental whining noise when driving noise increases when pressing on gas also sometimes when starting the car it goes away once in awhile


that whine you are hearing is the transmissions torque converter , it is low on fluid , how long since you had auto tranny flushed , pull the tranny dipstick , fluid should be red or pink , if it is brown or even worse BLACK , your transmission is ready to fail

I have a 1999 GMC Suburban 1500 that started having front end popping/clicking yesterday. Tonight went to back into my parking spot, pulled forward to adjust and it did not move? I can only pull it forward...


Not CV. Red means transmission fluid. On front frame probably means you have a transmission cooler which is a smaller separate radiator that keeps the transmission fluid cool. That's probably where the leak is or the line leading to it. Check your transmission fluid (it has a dipstick) and make sure it shows at the proper level on that dipstick. Add transmission fluid by pouring into same tube dipstick is in. Drive to nearest shop and repair leak.

Hi I just purchase a 2001 Chrysler minivan The car turns on but wont drive and is leaking oil transmission Help me wats the problem?


Without transmission fluid the car wont move, it mostly leaks at pan gasket,the transmission cooler line or front transmission seal. I have to say you may be safe to add 1 quart ATF 4 transmission fluid, being in front of the vehicle looking in the engine the dipstck is where you add transmission fluid it on the right hand side yellow handle. pull the dipstick out get a funnel that can help you add transmission fluid if the leak is not that bad this can help you get to shop that can fix the leak and put you on the road

'05 Chevy Colorado has an engine whine coming from rear of engine block on passenger side. Took the drive belt off and the whine is still there. The more I accelerate, the louder the whine.


There is nothing that can make a whining noise in the back of the engine. Likely the noise you hear is coming from either the transmission converter or pump. Before anything else is done, check the fluid level. If the fluid on the dipstick smells burned, you definitely have an internal trans problem.

Where is the correct transmision fluid level in sentra 2006?


With car running and warmed up,pull transmission dipstick wipe clean reinsert and level should be between marks on stick.If stick is dry you are very low and there must be leak.fill to marks and keep car running and look for leak under car if no leak present then drive car a few miles at a time and check level repeatedly.Somtimes tranmission fluid will only leak under heavy driving conditions.If fluid level continues to go down with no leak transmission could be burning trans fluid up,Which is not good.thus you will have to bring to shop.Good luck...Brian

How do you properly check the transmission fluid?


To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:

emissionwiz_76.jpg If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.


emissionwiz_77.jpg To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
  1. Pull out the dipstick.

    With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)

  2. Check the fluid.

    Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.

  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.

    If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!

2002 Jeep Wrangler, had a slight tranmission leak, drained and filled-up with new fluid. Now transmission whines at least twice as loud as before. But at least the leak appears to have stopped. Any ideas?


There is air in the lines...start the jeep, pull the tranny dipstick and shift the jeep from D1, D2, D, N, R, P and back....assuming this is an automatic...and repeat until noise is gone. Don't forget to check the fluid level and replace the dipstick.

Where's the transmission dipstick on a 2000 saturn sl


The Saturn L series automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick. They are the "new breed" of transmissions that are SUPPOSED to be trouble free. There is a plug on the passenger side of the transmission by the drive axle It is 11mm bolt. start the vehicle in park on a level surface or hoist...at operating temp pull out the plug Fluid should just trickle out of the plug hole If no fluid comes out add fluid to trans until it does...Where do you add??? Red plug on top/center of trans. Plastic plugthat threads in Add fluid there....Good luck
