2001 Taurus transmission blows fluid out of the filler tube. Vent was clean

Transmission shifts fine but it blows fluid out of the filler tube. I changed the fluid/filter hoping something would give but nope, still blowing out. Vent was clean, not blocked

SOURCE: my van won't shift when it's cold, but once it

As far as back flushing goes, that for a radiator/cooling system . The reason I asked about the fluid type and brand is because I have heard of quite a few instances where another brand of ATF3 or4 was used, and same problem occurred, and when they drained the system, and added only Mopar brand ATF3 or4 instead, the problem went away. I'm told by some Chrysler technicians that Mopar fluid has additives that none of the others have in them, that specifically are designed for Chrysler/Dodge transmissions. Other non-Chrysler mechanics will probably argue that, but in my area, the most reputable garages, will use noting but Mopar fluids in Chrysler/Dodge transmissions. Currently they recommend MoparATF4 in Chrysler products. Cost is a little more, but recommended to last lifetime of transmission as well. Whether you decide to try it, is up to you, but if it were me, and I'm not getting any trouble codes to tell me otherwise from transmission, then I'd replace fluid with the mopar ATF4. Might want to have coolant temperature checked as well, if transmission cooled through radiator, and if not, maybe try blocking off external transmission cooler when cold, to see if it helps warm fluid up. Just be real sure to take it out before it gets too warm. You also might want to inquire if transmission places know of a thermostatically controlled valve in cooler to help overcome that. I know they had them years back, as I had one installed on a Caravan, but I'm not sure if they still do.

2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA automatic gasoline engine. shifts hard sometimes.


YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.

Transmission oil coming out the funnel


If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.

I have no gears forward or reverse. My Vehicle is a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Hemi with 170,000 on the clock. Fluid is clean and full with no leaks. I have the following trouble codes:...


Your scanner will give you the code but it will not tell you how to fix your vehicle. Scanners basically tell you what systems to check or what systems are failing.

These are what your codes mean:

P0700: Transmission Control Module
- Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of transaxle control module. This is just a informative code.

P0734: Gear ratio error in 4th gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0732: Gear ratio error in 2nd gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0731: Gear ratio error in 1st gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0871: Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor Switch C

P0876: Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor Switch D

Emissions Codes:

P0400: Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction
- Harness or connectors (EGR volume control valve circuit is open or shorted.)
- EGR volume control valve stuck closed
- EGR volume control solenoid valve
- Dead (Weak) battery
- EGR temperature sensor and circuit
- EGR Valve

How to fix :
- Clean EGR Valve
- Repair EGR harness or connector
- Replaced EGR volume control solenoid valve
- Replaced EGR volume control valve

P0440: EVAP Emission Control System Malfunction
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

P0456: EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Very Small Leak)
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

P0441: EVAP Emission Control System Incorrect Purge
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

Based on the info check your EVAP system. I would check for leaks and maybe replace the EGR and the canister.

For the transmission check the TCM also you may need to take it to a mechanic though.

Hope this helps a little.

I have a 2000 ford taurus with Transmission Fluid coming out of the dip stick. can i fix this myself or do i have to take it in?


There is a transmission vent tube on top of the transmission, & when the vent tube sticks shut, it causes trans fluid to come out of the dipstick (path of least resistance), and/or, the trans pan gasket. This is a common issue w/ the 2000 Taurus. To resolve puncture the trans vent tube.

I overfilled my transmission fluid on my 96 taurus gl, now it won't shift into gear. Did i blow the trasmission?


It is probable that you blew out the seals and will need your transmission repaired. You can try to slip a small hose down the dip stick tube and draw out the extra fluid, there is a slight chance that your transmission will work if you get the fluid level back down where it should be.

How do I refill my TRansmission Fluid?


There is no reservoir...fluid is added right into the tube for the dipstick with a funnel.

Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when


Several things could be causing your problem:
  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles
