    I just talked to my friend again and yes autowizzard that's what he meant. Is it expensive to replace the gaskets? Was just wondering so I'm not taken for a ride on expenses.

I would lean to a simple transmission leak inspect your transmission housing for leak when vehicle is in the air safely on jack stands and wheels off the ground and rear wheels chucked.... safety first! start by visually inspecting the transmission housing for noticable links then if none can be seen or theres soo much fluid you cant tell where its coming from clean the area with degreaser and then reinspect after cars been running and shifted through a few gears this can be doen while vehicle is still in air as long as its done safely! locate the leak and replace parts as needed could be from pan gasket or differential seals or from speed cable from top, the torque converter or even can leak from fill spout but not likely after you locate it replace part from local parts store or dealer or just have it done proffessionally but most selas can be replaced by knowledgable do it yourselfer! good luck and dont forget your rating!

No a computer will not cause a fluid leak... there is a solenoid pack on the front if the transmission that is known to leak fluid.. maybe thats what they meant. that pack is computer controlled but its not a computer, just a solenoid pack.. most trans shops can replace the face and base gaskets rather than the whole solenoid pack..

96 Pontiac grand prix the transmission won't engage until its at operating temp.


Sounds like mine. Probably low on transmission fluid. One quart made a huge difference. You may have a leak. Spots under the car? Keep watching it, Keep a spare quart in the car and funnel
for emergency till you get leak fixed.

My 2002 Trailblazer is using a LOT of transmission fluid! I am having to put half a quart in a WEEK! Could someone PLEASE help me?? What should I do? I just bought this thing!


Transmissions dont "use" fluid. If you are replacing half a quart a week you have a leak somewhere.. Try tightening the transmission pan bolts. If this doesnt stop the leak you may have a bad pan gasket. There are also two small tubes running from the ****** to the radiator for cooling. One or both may be leaking. Put a liece of cardboatd or wood under your truck to catch drips. This will help you to locate where it is leaking from.

I recently had a leak in my 2002 Grand Am SE 3.4L transmission due to a spot which wore a hole in the hose. Fliud leaked out at gas station and I drove it a mile home. My dad fixed the line and we dropped...


The manual says there is no dipstick. The transmission is a sealed unit, filled for life. It's really a bad design to not have a dipstick, because transmissions will weep a little fluid at times and it's a good idea to check the level once in a while. The Manual says that if it leaks fluid you have to repair or replace the transmission. Not a valid repair when the car has 160,000 miles and it's a pint low. There's a plug on the passenger side at the bottom of the transmission to check the level (with the engine running, so it needs to be on a lift) and there's a yellow filler plug hidden under the air cleaner on top of the transmission.

If you put in 5 quarts, it is either too much or too little. Both cases will cause the fluid to foam, causing jerky shifting. Mine was too low at 185,000 miles and it was banging shifts when hot.

By the way, that transmission needs about 9.8 quarts after a pan drop and filter change, so your 5 quarts is way too little.

Fix the leak, and you should have no problem. There is no way to burn the fluid, other than a leak.
