I own a 1991 volvo 240 dl and when car is cold transmission shifts fine once car has warmed up transmisson loses third gear like car is neutral once cold shifts fine again what do I need to look for

The automatic transmission fitted on these models could be the AW-70, AW-70L or AW-72. The three transmissions are very similar. They are conventional in design though they are clutch-type (no brake bands) and very sturdy.
The automatic transmission is a complex unit, but if not abused, is reliable and long-lasting. Troubleshooting these units is fairly complex, so the home mechanic should be concerned with one thing to start: oil level and condition. Begin by having the idle line pressure tested when warm (it tends to drop as the oil warms up). If the level is low, ensure no leaks are present and top it off as needed (do not overfill - fill when the transmission is hot - if overfilled, this can damage the transmission as well as cause hot oil to be ejected from the fill hole) and test drive it again. Ensure to follow procedures when topping up automatic transmission oil, and ensure it is of the correct type. If the oil level is OK and line pressure is not then replacement of the oil and screen along with cleaning of the magnets should be done. The magnets are there to trap metal contaminants before they can damage the transmission.

The oil should be flushed out, filter changed and magnets cleaned at least every 80,000 miles. Have this done first to see if the problem goes away. If it persists, then the clutch pack for that gear or the valve body is suspect. If the oil is new and proper drain and flush procedures have been followed, it's possible that the check ball in the valve body is sticking once warm. What I have done with these is drop out that valve body and clean it thoroughly, provided scrupulous cleanliness is observed. While cleaning it, replace the check balls and associated springs. If this checks out OK after the maintenance, then it's possible the pistons, accumulators or clutch packs have probably worn out.

If by this point, the transmission still doesn't function normally, then replacement is the only fix. No DIY repair is recommended and may be exchanged in part exchange for a new or rebuilt unit.

Trans temp high

start by cleaning your radiator cooling fins first and have the core checked, if in order start by replacing all filters, drain the oil ,flush the whole system with approved atf oil, oem, fill ,test transmission , keep hand brake on, engage drive selection then reverse, the switch off and check oil level. if dropped fill up but do not over fill for it can cause heating, drain if needed. once all completed that a drive and test, if still heating up have the torque converter tested. Normally it's either too much oil or too little/oil lost it's viscosity through over heating

I have a 2002 honda accord sedan lx. the transmission is not doing right, and i noticed i dont have to push the button to change from drive 4 to drive 3. also i had a transmission flush 2 months ago...

Shifter in my 99 Honda goes from D4 to D3 without pushing button also. I 'NEVER' recommend flushing transmissions, it will always cause problems. I've been rebuilding transmissions for 25 years now, flushing causes all the buit-up contaminates to stop up the filter, which cannor be changed on Hondas. I have to admit though I get 'ALOT' of work since the introduction of flushing machines. Good luck.

Slightly overfilling the transmission will not damage it. Driving it with almost no fluid in it will. Chances are, the bands in the tranny are burnt, and debris has also clogged the filter screen. It is probably worth trying to have the transmission flushed (traditional flush, NOT reverse power flushed) and the filter screen replaced. This may enable you to get a few more miles out of it. Also, there is a product called Trans-X that might help.

While driving it looses power. Will stop car and put in park. Get out and check basics Oil etc and ok. Restart car no problem. Put in drive wont go. Put in reverse will go. Stop, put in park. Put in drive...

Sounds like there's a transmission problem there. Maybe try a transmission flush and fill to see if that solves the problem for about $100. If that doesn't solve the problem a transmission rebuild is probably the way to go to fix the problem.

That procedure is a lot more than the flush and fill, though.

How do you change transmission fluid in an 1999 alero olds

This usually depends on what kind of transmission maintenance you wish to do. if you want to do a complete flush you need to take it to a shop and have it flushed professionally. If you would rather do a drain and fill, then this is definitely something that can be done at home. I would also recommend changing the transmission filter and pan gasket. Will only take you a few extra minutes and will save you alot of trouble in the long run. Before you get started, be aware that it is not always recommended to do a complete flush on older model, high mileage vehicles. As the transmission fluid becomes worn, it creates deposits and when you completely flush the system, sometimes the deposits are left behind and will clog up the oil ports and cause you some major headaches. Always do at least 5 drain and fills before you flush the whole system. For a complete pictorial guide on how to perform a drain and fill please go here.

1988 Honda Prelude (Maintence)

tire rotation, air filter, breather element,
Timing belt for wear and tear
other belts be it V-belts or Serpentine
radiator fluid (older than 3 years needs a flush and fill)
transmission fluid and filter change. if its a manual transmission then change the gear oil
Battery inspection
Ignition system--- Spark plug gaps,wires,cap and rotor and coil inspection.
Motor Mounts inspection
Other things good for a car of that high of mileage are flushing out the old brake fluid and filling with new....same for power steering.
mostly inspections
Last but not least... put a can of Seafoam* into your gas tank and drive it on the highway for at least 30-45 minutes. congrats on your high mileage honda :-]
