Probably need to have the filter changed in the transmission. Most of the time when you have it flushed it will be ok but if it had alot of varnish build up in the tranny when you had it flush it may have clogged the filter.

My 1990 gmc k2500 sierra four wheel drive has blue smoke coming out of tail pipe and runs low on tranny fluid and i need to add 2 qts a week but there are now am i loosing tran fluid?

Pull the vacuum line of the transmission modulator valve. If there's oil in the line, the diaphragm in the modulator valve is cracked and engine vacuum is pulling trans fluid into the engine intakee

Put a new radiator on 3 days ago...transmission fluid is in the anti-freeze..

It sounds like you got a bad radiator! Or your transmission got hot enough before you replaced the radiator to rupture the cooling jacket.

A Jimmy runs pretty hot, so I always recommend the separate transmission cooler to help with the engine and transmission cooling problems of the Jimmy.

I have oil in the cooling system?????I also have about 3.5 quarts of oil in a verry shoet time.Engine runs good and does not smoke.Very little sign of leaking oil.What should i look at first.Intake...

It happened to my 2003 last year. My mechanic tells me that there is a transmission cooler built into the radiator that has cracked or somehow opened to allow the exchange of fluids. Cost me a new radiator, and flushing of both cooling and transmission fluids. 3 months ago the head gasket went. I don't know if it was related. Oh, and I had to flush the cooling system a couple of times as trans fluid remnants continued to show up in the coolant overflow reservoir. I recently checked my trans fluid, and it looks brown about 18 months later, might go for a BG flush soon. Car runs fine

I have a 2003 2500hd with 8.1 motor and Allison auto trans.can you tell me what is the correct type of trans. Filter and oil (how many quarts) needed to change it all.

14.8 pints according to my online resources.
2 pints per quart means it's 7.4 Quarts total.
That's a nice transmission and engine combination.

But, I've been told by my local Quality Transmission shop, that flushing and filling is better than changing the filter and oil. And, although they work on transmissions, they leave it up to another garage to do that kind of work, because they're too busy with rebuilding transmissions.

Every 30,000 mi. the transmission should be flushed and filled with new transmission fluid, I've been told.

1998 dodge grand caravan transmission slipping

A good place to start would be a fluid and filter change, and be sure you use proper (recommended) fluid. Then I would remove connectors to solenoids, modules etc, on transmission and clean them well with contact/electrical cleaner. Disconnect battery prior just for sake of safety & to make sure no circuits get shorted while doing it.Then give it a try, and see if any improvement. If still acting up, I'd spend a few bucks on at least having diagnosed by a knowledgeable technician at a dealership, or a transmission repair chain. Sometimes it can be a solenoid or speed sensor, or something not too expensive. Once you have proper diagnosis, then make your decision.

I thought recently that I was experiencing a slight bit of hesitance in my transmission so I added about half a quart yesterday. Almost immediately after driving it, the transmission started going crazy....

First of all, too much fluid WILL NOT harm your trans. I am not sure what you mean by "hesitation" but if a delay into gear, or a slip is a better description then adding fluid is not going to fix it. Your trans is known as an A4LD and though they were quite durable for their size, like everything else mechanical, they don't last forever. First of all, check the fluid. Not just the level, but the condition. Is it brown or even black? Does it smell burnt? If you answered yes to either, then you likely need an overhaul. If the fluid is still red, or pink, then you may have a faulty modulator or vacuum source to it, or the governor may be sticking. My 20 plus years of overhauling these units tells me that when you added the new fluid, the detergents in it went to work flushing out debris from where it had rested for years, then sent it directly to the governor. And once the governor stuck, the trans quit shifting. Sorry, but it sounds as though you need an overhaul.

Capacity of fluid for a transmission of a 2006 F150 5.4L Truck. Book says 13.9 quarts I emptied 3-4 quarts.

you must have just drained the pan? There is much more held in the converter. The one I am rebuilding this week is an 05 and doesn't have a drain plug on it (not many do anymore). A flush is the only way to change it all out. 13.9qts sounds like the total amount if the trans was completely empty, converter and all

You will have to pull the pan off the bottom of the trans, the filter is inside, this is a very messy job and you will most likely get trans fluid everywhere, I would suggest a shop do this unless you have a good floor jack and 4 jack stands, you will also need a large drain pan to catch the fluid. If you do this job do not overfill the trans, get it hot before you top it off with fluid, add 2 quarts right away and then keep adding until it is just below the fluid full line on the dip stick.

PS the other post is a fluid flush and does not include a pan removal or filter change.
