Coming home jimmy slowed down by itself to a stop. engine runs but it wont move in any gear


Did you look underneath for leaks ,check the dipstick?
Sounds like you are completely out of transmission fluid which does not sound good .
Adding SeaFoam probably didn't help either if it was already low or leaking ,never trust those supposed bottled leak sealers !
Hopefully you didn't drive it too far ,if you haven't I would have it towed home and fill it up with tranny fluid a quart at a time ,check it after the second bottle on the dipstick and after every one after until you see any improvement (all the while looking for leaks underneath !! ) Hopefully you haven't burned up your transmission.

My '05 altima hesitates when i shift from park to drive then jerks into gear. once driving changes gears smoothly, no jerking, no slipping, no hesitation.


Read the owners manual for checking the Transmission Fluid. Usually it involves putting the car in Neutral and checking the fluid. If it is low, that could be the problem. If it is not, it may be a problem with the gears. I would take it to a shop to try to diagnose the issue.

I have a 1995 Mazda 626 I have been reading about the OD Light blinking and engine light on as I am trying to fix this myself without having to replace the tranny. ( I am a female) I have changed the fluid...


Hello littlemegmb, I am so sorry your having issues with your transmission.
My best guess with the info you posted.
1. I have to ask, because you didn't mention it. Are you sure you used the right fluid?
I am pretty sure that the 95 Mazda is supposed to have Dextron II, or higher. using the wrong fluid can cause some of the issues you are having, and can do perminent damage. If you are not positive that you used the right fluid, please call any parts store and give them the info on your car so they can look up the right fluid. Also, ask them how many quarts you should need when you change the fluid, I think it's around 7 quarts
2. If you know for sure that you used the right fluid, myself, I would let the car run for about 5 minutes, then check your tranny dip stick to make sure that you put enough fluid back in to the tranny, it needs to be checked while it's hot.
99% of the time, when a transmission is slipping, or, it wont move, it's low on fluid.
You do need to be mindful that it is very easy to overfill the transmission, which can lead to other serious issues.
3. One reason that the transmission seems to work better when it's cold, is, all the fluid has had a chance to drain down into the pan, but, once the car is started the fluid again begans to circulate leaving the level in the pan way to low.
I really, really hope that you find it's something simple like the fluid is way too low.
That is my best guess.
Good luck!

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

How can i check the level of my transmission fluid on a 1996 volkswagon jetta gls?


Assuming it is an automatic. With engine idling, put transmission thru all gears, put back in park, keep engine running, check dipstick for tranny. If it is a manual then you have to crawl under car and remove upper "fill" plug on gearbox, fluid will be up to that level. NOTE: unless your tranny leaks it should never be low!

HOW TO CHECK TRANSMISSION OIL


I'm assuming that you have an automatic tranny.
Engine must be warm.
Raise the hood.
Get in and shift thougth ALL gears starting with low and go through up to drive, reverse,ect stopping at each selection for a second or two.
Put in park, reomove the tranny dipstick and wipe off.
Insert and remove dipstick again and check the level.
Add fluid through the dipstick holder if more is needed.
Add the fluid very slowly.

WHY WHEN I PUT THE TRUCK IN REVERSE IT KICKS IN HARD


Very common with the suburbans. The tranny could be starting to go. Worst case senario anyways. I recommend doing a tranny flush and then change fluid and filter. Also check transfter case and rear axle oils.

Hey guys: My 91 MPV sat for 6 weeks recently...Before I parked it, it was running fine...Yesterday when I put it back on the road the tranny was making a whirring sound but was working fine....I drove for...


Hello. Sorry to hear you are having this trouble. From what I hear it sounds like your automatic transaxle may be low on fluid, or the fluid has been getting too old and overheated (as any will over time). Please look for signs of any tranny fluid leaks on the ground and under the van. If it does you will need to fix the leak, and/or keep up with fluid loss all the time until you do.

Please check your automatic transaxle (tranny) fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. See if the fluid looks pink and clean. If the fluid or dipstick is dark or brown looking at all, it needs replaced. Get the fluid professionally flushed and changed. This step alone may fix your van as long as the fluid is not leaking, and too much old fluid use (hopefully) has not already damaged the tranny.

Where the plug for tranny on 96' jetta is located?


On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.
