SOURCE: 1995 isuzu trooper manual transmission

Hello smeet3992: The transmission uses 5w-30 for tempretures up to 95 degreese in tempreture. Uses 15w-40 for all tempretures greater then 50 degreese. If you are in an area that has extreme fluctuation in tempretures I would use the 15w-4o engine oil. I also senrt a picture of where to check the oil at. Make sure you pull the right plug. The reverse idler pin has the same size bolt head.

I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.

Still waiting an answer to my 2005 XLT ford escape gear challenges


if you are talking about the transmission then the trans needs to be flushed a simple drain and fill is not enough the torque converter holds a lot of fluid and if it is cold where you are maybe frozen.auto trans fluid can mix with antifreeze.

Transmission will not shift into high gear


That chocolate cottage cheese may have been transmission fluid mixed in with your engine coolant (transmission cooler in radiator ruptured), which means you could have been getting engine coolant in the transmission. What does the fluid on your transmission dipstick look like? If the transmission fluid is contaminated, it could cause a lot of problems in the transmission. If you suspect this, have a transmission shop check it out. Just changing the transmission fluid will not correct this, as there will be a lot of fluid that doesn't drain out - in the torque converter, valve body, and all the passages and clutches.

Mazda tribute 2003 transmission not working. i can move the into D 2,1 R but car wont move an inch


since you had a water mixed with transmission fluid,the only thing I personally believe that is no need to continue playing with as the water is the worst enemy of the automatic transmission. makes all the o rings to expand and corrosion . It happened to me a while ago and I reconditioned the Gear box.

My volkswagen golf v6 Automatic gear transmission is not more selecting what can I do cos there is not expart where I am pls help me.


I am a VW pro! Do you mean it wont change gears? A lot of VW's are having this same problem. One of three things could be the cause. Sensor on trans, trans control module, or the valve body in the transmission. When VW first made these cars, the transmission fluid was "suppose" to be lifetime fluid. These transmissions are sealed and have no dipstick. There is however a red plug right bellow the starter. You can open that cap and remove the plug under it. "Pull straight up while giving a slight turn". If you have a "clean" clear tube from maybe a fish air pump, you can slide that down the tube and pull it back out. you can smell it to see if it is burnt. The fluid is actually a type of mineral oil and CAN NOT BE MIXED with any other type of fluid! If the fluid is black, it will need replaced! The fluid should be changed every 50,000 miles part number G052162A2. Odds are, you will need to change the valve body inside the transmission

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

Put in a new radiator. Flush the trans a couple more times and hope for the best. The Trans cooler on the radiator corroded through ,and you may end up having to rebuild the trans.

Automatic transmission won't shift into drive


Check automatic transmission fluid using dipstick, if fluid is low the automatic g/box tend not to shift properly. If the fluid level is fine you probably have an internal gearbox problem or a sensor problem (see a mechanic).
