Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

If anyone even remotely knows what this could be we can get a dialog going. It looks like a mixture of water and transmission fluid. When the truck is running it sound like a fan is hitting water.

SOURCE: dont know if i should check transmission fluid with truck running

if its an automatic pull the dip stick out and it should be stamped on the stick. it will most likely be in park on level ground at operating tempature. if its a manual then while its level pull the fill plug out of the side of the trans it will be about half way up or so. the fluid should be at about the level of the fill hole on the side.

SOURCE: 2003 Sierra 2500hd transmission or transfer case

Sudden grinding noise with no prior warning * Primarily in 2nd gear, behavior in reverse may be abnormal; sunshell is fractured. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

* Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R sooner rather than later.

* Either a torrington bearing or a planetary bearing is on its way out. Trans will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death. Cheaper to rebuild now (saves further damage to hard parts), but requires R&R. It is drivable until it breaks.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Is there anyone out there that has a 98 Lincoln Cont. that has the Check Tranmission light come on Passed 72 MPH? If so how do you fix it?

There are some items to check:

1. Check the transmission fluid level to be sure it isn't too low or too high. The vehicle must be parked on a level surface, be warmed up and be running (idling) to check the fluid. The fluid should be dark red and not have a burned smell. If the transmission fluid is milky colored and way too full, it may mean that there is an internal leak in the transmission cooler tank inside the radiator.
2. When was the last time the transmission fluid was changed? Check your owner's manual if you have one and see what the recommended fluid/filter change intervals are.
3. The transmission cooler lines - look for any kinks, damage or leaks. If there are rubber hose segments in the cooler lines, the hoses can sometimes partially collapse internally and not be visible externally. This usually only occurs on vehicles with high mileage.
4. Check the condition of the engine coolant and antifreeze. The anti-freeze and water mixture should test out to provide freeze protection to about 20 below zero. If the solution it too weak, adequate cooling may not be taking place. Old coolant can be contaminated and dirty, and also cause overheating of the transmission.
5. Check to make sure the engine radiator isn't obstructed by debris or dirty and that the radiator fan is working properly. You didn't say anything about engine overheating, so there probably isn't an issue with the engine thermostat or other engine cooling problem

Can transmition fluid get mixed with antifreeze on chrysler pacifica 2005

No, Your radiator has many small ports which when antifreeze is mixed with oil or transmission fluid creates a chocolate milk looking mixture. This will not cool your engine as it needs resulting in overheating, and or blowing of your head gasket

Transmission fluid & radiator fluid keeps getting low. know approx. where leak is, drivers side front on inside of front tire. would a leak in radiator cause trans. fluid to leak also from radiator?...

Your transmission fluid runs to your cooling system to cool the transmission oil. So, in answer to your question, one of the two transmission lines (one in, bottom and one out, top) could be leaking from the cooling system.

Bring your vehicle in for a cooling system pressure check. Another thing to keep in mind when inspecting leaks is that where you see the leak may not necessarily be where the leak is from. While the leak will drip down, the wind from when you're driving will splatter the leak all over the under-carriage of your vehicle making it look like leaks are happening where they in fact, are not.

I have a 92 honda accord ex my transmission fluid is almost a pink color i drained the fluids out because it was over filled . after going 30 miles my car does not want to accelerate now the car doesnt...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Sounds like you may have drained out to much fluid. You need to make sure that it is full because it will do this if it is not. If you are driving on little fluid, it can mess the transmission up. I would recheck the fluid. Make sure you check it on a level lot.

2007 Jeep Commander won't turn over. Ran it earlier today no problems. The "TRANSMISSION OVER TEMP" indicator comes up. Sounds like it wants to start but just won't. Also have a water leak...

There's always the possibility that the water managed to get into the ECU and fry the system, but I'd hope fervently not. Pull the dipstick. If the fluid looks black, or is shiny, you might be in for a bad day. Drain the transmission oil out if it is black (a $10 fluid vacuum pump from Wal*Mart works wonders here), and pour in the right amount of ATF fluid. It might be that it burnt the fluid so much it changed viscosities, trying to crank the engine and the car forwards? I wouldn't know, but see if that helps.

My 1994 Ford Explorer Limited 4X4 had a really bad leak after driving it and all the transmission fluid drained out when i put the vehicle in gear. Is that the front seal? maybe the water pump?

If your having to add transmission fluid and not coolant, then the water pump is ok, fill with transmission fluid look under truck, if fluid is coming out of between engine and transmission housing, then bad front transmission seal.

First Did you take the emergency barke off? and have you checked the fluid level? even a pint of fluid can damage transmissions. look at fluid is it brown? if it is you need to change the oil and filter in the transmisson. Does it go in reverse?

My trans fluid is mixing with my radiator fluid, what can i do.

I hate to contradict the prior poster, but I would not see how a blown head gasket could get transmission fluid into the radiator. Motor oil, yes, but transmission fluid, no.

the transmission fluid in your tranny runs out of the transmission and up into the radiator to cool it off.

So if there is transmission fluid in the radiator, I'd look for a leak in the radiator. If it is mixing the two fluids then the leak is probalby internal.

Remember that if the radiator is now 'mixing' water and transmission fluid, there is a possibility that the fluid/water mixture may be going back into the transmission as well

Transmission Fluid Looks "Bad"?

you just need the fluid change im sure its probably dark and every oil changer makes it sound bad!! just get it serviced new fluid and tranny filter if equipped although if theres tons of miles on the fluid dont change it because theres a possibility that it wont ever shift again and thats around 125K
