A 97 2.6LT 2 wheel drive auto Rodeo,took box out when i put it back in it haze no gears like its not getting oil,.why

the problem may be in the installation process of the box
the correct procedure is to put the torque converter onto the shaft of the transmission first and push it all the way back to engage the oil pump for the transmission
install the transmission then pull the torque converter forward to install the bolts through the flexi plate
putting the torque converter in first then putting the box up generally results in the drive for the oil pump not connecting properly in the torque converter

Hi Craig,
I'd suggest that the oil seal which seals between the torque converter neck and the gear box casing is damaged and will need replacing. The job seems simple but in fact can result in breaking the gearbox oil pump, when the torque converter is refitted to the gear box. the neck has to align with the gears inside the gear box and the oil pump, if the torque converter is not fitted correctly the damage I've mentioned will take place when refitting box.
If you would like to proceed let me know.

Tourque converter not locking up

The torque converter clutch (TCC) inside the torque converter, also referred to as the "damper clutch" or "lockup clutch", functions to lock the input and output sections of the torque converter together to provide improved fuel economy.
If you are servicing a transaxle with either of the following conditions, follow the repair procedure shown below:
^ Torque converter clutch does not engage when driving at steady speed on the highway. ^ Engine stalls when coming to a stop or when shifting into Drive or Reverse

1. Check the ATF level when the engine is idling in "N" according to TSB 01-40-013. Adjust the ATF level as needed.

. Attach the Hi-Scan Pro and check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) in both the "ENGINE" and "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" menus. If the DTC shown are found, follow the repair procedure shown. If no DTC are found, go to Step 3.
3. Using the Hi-Scan Pro, select "HYUNDAI VEHICLE DIAGNOSIS", "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" and "CURRENT DATA" menus, then "OIL TEMPERATURE" or "FLUID TEMPERATURE". Confirm the oil temperature readout is correct as shown. If not, replace the oil temperature sensor.dak408_10.jpg
4. Using the Hi-Scan Pro, select: ^ "HYUNDAI VEHICLE DIAGNOSIS" menu ^ "AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE" menu ^ "CURRENT DATA" menu ^ THROTTLE P. SENSOR, "TCC SOLENOID DUTY", "TCC SLIP" and "OIL TEMPERATURE" ^ F2 - "SCRN". This will isolate the top four data to allow a quicker refresh rate for the data. dak408_18.gif
Check the TCC data under the conditions shown in the table. If the TCC data indicate as shown, the torque converter and damper clutch are operating correctly. If not, go to Step 5.

5. If the TCC data does not indicate as shown or the engine stalls, follow the repair procedure shown.
6. If the engine stalls when shifting into Reverse or Drive, the oil cooler may be restricted. Disconnect the oil cooler hoses to the oil cooler in the radiator. Bypass the oil cooler as shown. It the condition: ^ Does not recur, replace the radiatorRecommend finding a certified Transmission mechanic if you are unable to complete these test using a scanner.

Mercedes water mixed with gearbox oil

The gear box and the engine are separated by a clutch and flywheel in the manual and a torque converter in an automatic so I am little puzzled as to how water (presumably engine coolant) got into the gear box. That aside, the only remedy is to drain the gear box and replenish with new oil.
On the other hand do you mean that water is the engine oil if so this will need to be drained and renewed. The only source of water contamination in the engine oil, other than the inadvertent adding of water via the oil filler cap, would be a cylinder head gasket failure allowing water to leak from the internal passages into the oil ways. If that is the case the gasket will need replacing.

Dear kev4,

The problem seems to be originating from your gearbox. The gear box has two main components that convert the torque of the engine to the tailshaft; the 'torque converter' and the 'bands' within the gearbox. If at higher rpm the car starts to rev higher and slow down then it would suggest that one of these two components are slipping or not functioning correctly.

To fix this problem you will have to take your car to a gearbox specialist who with either reccomend a replacement gearbox, a overhaul of the orriginal gearbox or if you get lucky a new torque converter. Unfortunately this car be a costly opperation but is quite important in reguards to the life of the vehicle.

Reguards luke.

Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience
