Type Of Transmission Fluid

I want to do a transmission fluid flush, I'm wondering what type of transmission fluid should I replace it with: As I recall it the fluid has to have SP3 which is what is used inside of the fluid when it was bought.

Hi, most auto transmissions use DextronII or III if it requires a speciality mineral oil then the dipstick or a warning will be shown in that area.
To confirm your thoughts your local parts supplier will have all the details of fluid capacities and grades/viscosities on file he or she will be glad to provide you with these.
If still unsure or worried? Mitsubishi website www.mitsubishi.com will gleen an abundance of service tips and details.
Good luck!

Help, 1999 Hyundai Transmission doesn't engage in forward gears. Reverse is fine. It initially only had a problem when cold, now it jerks to get into gear and never fully engages. I removed what I could of...


the transmission forward band is slipping flushing or replacing fluid will not help you will have to overhaul or replace transmission the reason problem got worse after fluid replacement is that the dirty fluid actually helps to seal minor spaces in clutches and bands when new fluid circulates through passages it will pick up deposits and remove dirt sealing clutches and bands most trans shops dont reccomend replacing trans fluid on vehicles over 120,000miles or 180,000kms that haven had regular trans fluid maitenance for that exact reason

Got this code p0740, tcc circuit malfunction, I would like to replace a TCC Solenoid how do i go about it?


P0740 - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Open

Possible Causes:
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted

Check your fluids 1st if they are low add fluid, and if they are dirty do a flush and a new filter. This usually will take care of it and save you money. TCCSV is a bit pricey try the cheaper route first. But it is located inside the transmission or on the side of the transmission. I dont recall exactly. Its something I would let a shop do though unless you have high mechanical skills.

When the preform the transmission service they will drain you transmission of its ATF fluid an replace it with new fluid. It is essentially an oil change for your transmission.


Lots of forgein car dealers say no but ive own and service nissan toyota and i dont change the fluid because you never get all the old oil out and then you mix new and old, what we do is called a trany flush done with a bg flush machine and is done every 30,000 miles unless its syntheic trany oil then at 100,000 miles, the flush is done with a cleaner and then a conditioner and removes 100% of the old oil. hope this helps.

How to replace all transmission fluid from torque converter and transmission in 1998 expedition? ?


The best way I know to change all of the transmission fluid is to have it professionally flushed and filled at a qualified shop in your area that specializes in this type of service.

Simply dropping the pan, and changing the filter won't do this as thoroughly as the flush and fill method which uses a special machine and a trained technician.

Transmission not pulling very well, fluid ok was


Honda Civic 01 has a defetive torque converter that prematurely fails. Same issue with the Odyssey 03 to 05. (The difference is Odyssey got a recall whereas the Civic did not). When it does, debris gets into the transmisson thereby clogging the filter and sometimes ruins the gears. There is no drop pans for this type of transmission and the filter is located inside the transmission housing itself which renders it to be serviceable by transmission shops ONLY. Most often, when the torque converter fails, the entire transmission will need to be overhauled or replaced. A cost that could run from $850 for a rebuilt to $2000 for an OEM. The best cost effective way to remedy this siuation is to replace the torque converter before the mileage reaches to 100K. A rebuilt one only cost $120 or $700 for an OEM with labor ranging around $350. Far cheaper than a transmission replacement. If your Civic 01 is still running and it is beyond 100K, run fast to a transmission shop and replace the torque converter immediately. If the transmission is already starting to slip, replace the torque conventer and flush the transmission and pray that the tranny was not significantly damaged by the debri. Remember, the recommended trans fluid change for Civic is 120K / 6 yrs or 30K / 6 months if driving in severe conditions.

The Automatic Transmission Fluid is supposed to be checked with the car running so there's a chance if you added fluid you've overfilled it. Also, Ford products require Type-F transmission fluid. Using the wrong kind can adversely impact the transmission's performance as well as do damage. Re-check the fluid level with the car running (preferably after 5 minutes or so to get it warm) and see if it's been overfilled. If not, verify if you've added fluid what type you used. If you used the wrong type, you should take the car (or tow) to a service station to have the fluid changed.

What type of transmission fluid can i use for a transmission flush. there are new imports multi transmission fluid avialble at half the price of factory oil? is that okay to us? and how many quarts do i...


The newer vehicles today use synthetic fluids in their engines as well as the transmissions. Any type of synthetic transmission fluid will work. You will need 12 qts. of fluid to flush the unit. But usually to flush a transmission you need a transmission flush machine or access to one. Unless you are going to drop the filter pan then you are really not flushing the transmission.
