How to fix dodge tran frm not going into overdrive

Dodge Truck? Or Dodge Car?
Dodge Automatic Overdrive transmissions are notorious for Overdrive Clutch failures / especially with over 100K miles / worse with under maintained units (burnt trans fluid) Most often seal failures - however burnt fluid will toast the clutches and slipping clutches will burn the fluid. If the fluid is Dark/Burnt there are internal problems - your local library will probably have repair manuals - or you could just exchange it for a rebuilt unit from a local trans shop.
I recommend you check the transmission faults before you go to much further. The On-Board diagnostics is pretty good for those systems.

How do I drain the torgue converter on 1990 ford ranger 2.9l v6

Well that depends on a couple of things. Remove torque converter dust sheild . Manually turn motor with a pull handle on crank shaft front pulley and inspect the edge of flywheel just inside the starter ring gear for an eigth inch pipe plug. If not found there's bad news. The converter in not drianable. You must remove trans and remove from trans turn snout down on a five gallon bucket to drain. Also note if you are trying to change fluid because there is a prob its too late damage is done already. If your doing it for maintenance purposes then you local automotive shop should have a fluid exchange machine that gets all the fluid with a whole lot less work. Thanks

I have a 2005 chevy tahoe...i just bought it, and the transmission still has a pink color to it..but it smells a little burnt...should i do a transmissions fluid exchange or not?

Hi there,

I would have to say YES, YES, YES !!!!

Modern transmissions are an amazing piece of electronic/mechanical machinery, but they rely on a special trans fluid (with special properties) to keep the internal components conditioned, keep pressures up and to prevent premature malfunction from overheating.

Trans fluid can be compared to our own blood - bad cholesterol levels in human blood will cause heart attacks...the same could be said for auto transmissions, containing bad trans fluid.

Until recently, manufacturers were slow to admit that transmission fluids should be changed sooner, rather than later (most manufacturers were/are suggesting changing fluid every 100,000km), but due to the high numbers of trans failures ocurring, it is now being suggested that trans fluid should be changed every 50,000km to be safe.

Remember: use ONLY CHEV APPROVED trans fluid (nothing else) and also change the trans oil filter at the same time. A complete transmission flush is also a good idea, if you intend on keeping the vehicle for a long time.

Want to do my own trans fuild change

Ok, just make sure you use Hyundai SP3 automatic transmission fluid when you do change your fluid (7 quarts). Dexron,Mercon, and Ford transmission fluids are not compatable with Hyundai automatics. If you dont' feel comfortable about changing your fluid, a Hyundai dealership will do it for you, Just ask for a transmission fluid-flush exchange.

I have motor oil in my radiator and no water in my oil, on dip stick.I suspect that oil is seeping through the oil to coolant exchanger and that is why I have oil in the radiator.My engine is a 5.4...

I would suspect a bad radiator, and that you have trans fluid in it,
from the internal oil cooler.
Better stop driving it ,repair and change the trans fluid, about four times.

transmission cooler in the radiator seems to be leaking, its a heat exchanger that transfers trans. fluid heat with coolant, ret the rad replaced and and the transmission flushed not just drained and filled cause when you drain a trans you do not empry the torque convertor so have it done my a reputable shop

1995 honda accord..transmission shifts hard.. true or false? if fluid has never been changed is it better not to change it..been told this by several people. I know it doesnt have a serviceable filter and...

in my opinion..if your milage is between 75K-140K I would try and just do a drain and fill and not a full exchange. If it is over 150K DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! See the deal is is that like oil, trans fluid is a fluid that breaks down and becomes bad after a certain amount of time. ANd once you put new fluid in, it breaks away all those containments, and metal particles and could do damage. so it is solely on you if you want to try it out or not. it could fix it, it could make it worst.

Need to change the fluid on an 02 santa fe 2wd w/ 2.7

Use ONLY Hyundai SPIII fluid - no other substitute is available. Several ways to do this - drain & refill several times: run engine to operating temp and cycle the trans through D & R. drain fluid again, refill and run engine again and cycle D & R, drain and refill again. Do not over fill - check when fluid is hot, the adjust level.
The other way is a Trans-Flush machine which performs a 'fluid exchange' - pulls old fluid out while replacing it with fresh fluid while the engine is running at idle in Neutral.

05 Ford Explorer Transmission

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

Tranny is slipping

If the tranny is slipping and it's an automatic it's time to rebuild it or replace it with a rebuilt from a good tranny rebuilder with an exchange unit. That's about the only option you have here.
