I hav a mercedes s350. when i drive the car shutters when it is changing gears.

It is usually a good idea to get it to a auto a mechanic if the transmissions begins shuddering, but there are some things you can check at home. If the vehicle shudders this may be a sign of low trans fluid or dirty burnt fluid.
Check the owner's manual for the location of the dipstick for the transmission pull a dipstick out and look at the fluid on the end of the dipstick if it's bright red its good if it's black or brown tis burnt you can smell it smell of burnt smell.
No idea of how many miles but if over 100k dont do a trans flush have a "trany splash" done. Flushes on high mile cars can change the fluid 100 % but not the filter. Splash changes fluid in the pan but not the torque converter. Unless there is a drain plug on converter, but a new filter will clean up the converter fluid.
Find a reputable mechanic so you dont end up with a bigger problem if its just the fluid.
Oh if when you pull the dipstick and you do do that and you see that the fluid is a little burnt or it's low always check tranny fluid when the engine is running
To get a accurate reading.

Transmission shuddering combined with transmission slippage may be a sign that too little (pluged filter) or too much fluid is making its way to the transmission. This is usually a telltale sign that the torque converter is failing.

Hope this helps a little.
Best of luck.

How do i adjust the bands on 96 subaru automatic

I'm afraid adjusting the bands on an automatic isn't a home mechanics job. No movement at all is more than just band adjustment. It sounds more like no fluid or no fluid pressure. Did you check the transmission fluid level? Remember to check it when the car is running with a cleaned off dipstick. Also, there is a screw on filter on the outside of the transmission that changes very easily, just like an oil filter. If that has never been changed on your '96 it may well be clogged, restricting or halting the fluid flow. If you change it, remember to top off the fluid in the transmission after.

Transmission filter how to change it in a 96 Plymouth voyager

raise and secure on stands. loosen transmission pan bolts one at a time, starting back to front. do not completely remove them just yet. have a bucket or pan ready to catch about 1 gallon of fluid.when all are loose gently pry downward on rear of pan to break seal.careful..fluid will come out at this at a time remove rear bolts to allow pan to drop a little at a time.once pan is removed,remove old filter. clean pan and all mating surfaces. make sure there is no oil or grease on gasket surfaces. install new filter and filter gasket(small round rubber gasket).install new gasket and pan. tighten bolts evenly but dont over tighten.refill with clean fluid and check for leaks.make sure to check fluid level after each quart is added. engine should be running to get proper reading.too much or too little can damage your transmission.

Where is the transmission dipstick located on my 2006 Pontiac G5? And what steps do I have to take to check and change it?

Alot of the newer GM model do not have transmission dipsticks anymore they are kindof a pain to check them. With the front of the car raised and supported level on a hoist or jackstands front and rear for a accurate reading from the passenger side of the vehicle look on thr back passenger side of the transmission there is a 11 mm bolt facing you, while the vehicle is running remove that bolt, transmission fluid should ran out of the hole, if it does not then you will need a friend to add from above while you watch while they add transmission fluid untill it does start running out that hole, if you look way down between the air box and the throttlebody there is a red cap down there remove the cap and the fluid there. To change the fluid I would recommend taking it to a repair facility and just having a transmission service done on it, it will save you a big headache. Transmission should be serviced around every 30,000 miles for normal driving conditions.
Good luck

How much fluid do i put in after a fluid and filter change transm

If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter it will probably take aprox. 4 maybe 5 quarts. I would add 4 and check it befor adding more . Just dont actually put it into gear until you know the fluid level is correct. Make sure to give the fluid enough time to get out of the dipstick tube so you get a accurate reading

How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine

Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

Best of luck :)

Transmission runs but dont do the shifting

can be a clogged transmission filter , or also the level of the transmission fluid can be low , you must check automatic transmission fluid while the car is running at idle to get an accurate reading , if the fluid is fine move onto the filter which can be clogged ,if it,s not that you can have also slipped bands internally in the trans that will require taking it appart , but check theese two things i mentioned first , hope that works for you , sincerely Glenn
