I recently gave to my 73 mustang mach one automatic tranny service that includes changing the oil and filter, the tranny was previously working ok, but now the trans wont change from first to second or third gears, i check the fluid level and its ok, may be a little overfilled, it does works if i make the changes from first to second manually i even readjust the shifter linkage, does that adjustement have anythig to do with my problem?

I don't think it's in your linkage. It sounds like you may have a cracked or disconnected vacuum line leading to your vacuum modulator. Or you may have a fauly modulator. Check for leaks first...At the back of the motor on the passenger side there should be a small (in diameter) vacuum line comming from the carburetor to a metal line leading down and back toward the rear of the car. Then at the back of the trans there should be a small vacuum line leading toward the front of the car to a small metal line. If one or both of those vac lines are loose os broken thats most likley your problem. If not it's more likley the modulator.

SOURCE: transmission

Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.
Change the filter and look for metal deposits in both the fluid and the filter. Minute shavings like sand or smaller is normal as long as there is not a lot. If you see a lot or see big particles then gears have been ground and you are looking at trouble. Get fixed early. Otherwise if filter is clean and fluid is fine and tranny still does this they make additives for tranny's to help with slipping. I use tranny medic. Follow the directions as you will need to drain some of the fluid out. Also do not add to your tranny unless you have met or exceeded the mileage specs on the bottle of the tranny medic. Hope this helped.

May be the Throttle Position Sensor. Normally the check engine light will come on when this happens.

If there is a tiny oil spot on the concrete by the oil filter what could cause this


possible residue from filter change,or the filter may be lose,if you can reach it try tightening it,it should only need to be hand tight. either that or when oil was added they may have spilt a drop.but more likely to be residue from filter change as when filter is changed i normally smear some oil around the new oil filter seal.

What does service b mean


The A service and B service is an oil change and a long list of inspections. Unless the service is covered under warranty, or this is a new car and you want some piece of mind, I suggest only getting the oil change.

clamps
- Brake inspection

- Inspect heating and ventilation dust filter, replace if needed. (Replacement additional. Dust filter prices vary by model)
- Function check
- Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior
lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
- Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage

Hi, what does the scheduled 60 000 miles service (or repairs) include for an Aston Martin DB7, 6L year 2000? I'm considering buying this model which has driven 65 000 miles and I'm not sure what...


Usually, a big service would include a cam-belt change and retiming, brake fluid top up, coolant level check, new oil filter, oil change, new pollen filter, new air filters and a general inspection. This should be no different for an Aston Martin :)

1998 2D Coupe(Automatic) O/D blinks, catch when gears change


When was the last time the Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? More than 35,000 miles = Fluid and Filter change.
Is there any leaks what so ever? This will affect shifting.
Have the Transmission Sensors been removed, cleaned/inspected and reinstalled? These Sensors are "magnets" and catch little metal particles that inhibit their functions, including shifting.
What is the condition and level of the Transmission Fluid. Make sure you smell the Fluid. If it smells burnt, then change it immediately. Make sure you check the level when the engine is at normal temperature and while the engine is running, with the gear in Park or Neutral (with the Parking Brake ON!).
Does this Transmission have a Solenoid (electronic shifting)? If so have you checked the electronic connections for corrosion or oxidation?
Don't spend $2,000 (or more) dollars when the rest of these combined cost less than $200 dollars!
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Ford truck2002 transmission shudders whats wrong with it


2002 and the last full service waas when? Have the trans serviced, full oil chang including torque coverter and new filter.Automatic transmissions are full of clutches if the wet type and wet clutches are very uncooperative with broken dow oil or type of oil. The cheapest repair attempt right now is a full service and filter change. Though, do it soon before any damage is done that will result in an overhaul.
