My friend came to my house a few years back with the same problem. I put tranny fluid on and inside the end of the hose and then used a screwdriver or something small skinny and strong like that to kinda just put it on like you would do to put on tied shoes, with your finger in your heel trying to slip it on. If that doesn\'t make since, let me know and i will find a better way to explain. Hope this helps.

How is coolant fluid leaking into my transmission?


The auto transmissions have lines to the radiator, the core might have cracked and leaks to the transmission line that flows to and from it.

I have a 97 dodge dakota just put a motor in it and now after driving for about 5 min trans temp light comes on and od off light comes on .trans is full of new fluid and all connections are good


OD probably is commanded to go off whenever the trans temp is high. Was the radiator connection plugged when the cooling lines were removed? Check to ensure they are connected to the radiator and were not kinked when the engine was removed.

On a Dodge 727 torqueflight ('68) What cooling line is in and which one is return?


Actually, it does not matter if you are starting over on the lines. All you need to know is that the fluid flows into the radiator, cools down, and goes back into the transmission. In a later model with a cross-flow radiator, I would say the flow is from the trans and into the top fitting on the radiator tank, and the return is on the bottom. As long as they are tight fittings, you're good to go. They are NOT high pressure, so circle clamps and rubber hoses, about 3/8" diameter links the steel lines where they may be new-to-the- old lines. Since it is a 1968, the chances of original lines may be out unless you are restoring whatever model.My fav was the Challenger. On a Hope this helps.

My 97 grand caravan runs great when its cold, but when it heats up the ****** down shifts to first and usually stays there. sometimes it will jump back to 3rd. I noticed that it only does this when the...


It's actually your transmission fluid getting hot! Check trans. cooling lines going to radiator or aux.trans.cooler. Check fluid on dipstick with engine running, if you fluid is burnt looking not bright red anymore. Have your fliud flushed-changed and have service tech flush lines through radiator.You may solve problem this easy, but worse case senerio if it has done this for awhile you may need to rebuild trans. and get new cooling lines. My chrysler did the same thing but it cost me $1450.00 for the rebuilt trans.. After my trans. was rebuilt by the 35 years experianced shop,I found that the cooling lines were clogged and it burntout there fresh rebuild. The warranty I got paid for the second go around rebuilding trans.again. That company had to eat the costs. Now everything shifts great! Drove it on vacation! Make sure if you get trans. rebuilt they replace the governor sensor and solenoid sensor if your trans. is electronic like my 95 is.

I have a 92 ford f250 with a 460 and E40D backing it up. what would cause the tranny to over heat


Hello, You could have several problems. The Radiator can be clogged for the transmission cooling lines. The internal filter in the trans could need cleaning. Your rear Emergency brakes could be dragging. Check for missing heat shields on the Catalytic converters which if gone, could be toasting your trans.

Add a transmission cooler to the system. The aftermarket also has several trans pan upgrades having cooling fins or cooling tubes built into them.

There are several reports of trans failure with 1 owner replacing 7 transmissions. This is about all I can supply for you at this time. I hope my info is very helpful.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

Need to change radiator on 2006 ford explorer


THE EASIEST WAY TO REPLACE THIS RADIATOR IS TO REMOVE THE FREON FROM THE AC SYSTEM, DISCONNECT THE LINES GOING TO THE AC CONDENSER, REMOVE THE FAN SHROUD TOP AND BOTTOM, THEN REMOVE THE 13MM BOLTS ON THE UPPER PART OF THE RADIATOR SUPPORTS. REMOVE THE AIR DIFLECTOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE VEHICLE, REMOVE THE AIR FILTER ASSEMBLY. LAST YOU NEED THE TOOL TO DISCONNECT THE TRANS LINES. ONCE THIS IS DONE THE RADIATOR AND THE CONDENSER WILL COME OUT IN ONE PIECE. AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE THE RADIATOR FROM THE SUPPORT.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOOL TO REMOVE THE TRANS LINES YOU CAN UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES FROM THE RADIATOR. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND USE THE OLD ONES. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RADIATOR IN PUT THE FAN SHROUD BACK IN AND TIGHTEN THE BOLTS. THEN IF YOU HAD TO UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES DUE TO NO TOOL, REMOVE ONE OF THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND SCREW THE OLD FIITING BACK IN AND TIGHTEN IT. THEN REMOVE THE OTHER TRANS FITTING AND SCREW IT IN USING THE OLD FITTING. DO NOT REMOVE BOTH OF THE TRANS FIITINGS ON THE NEW RADIATOR AT THE SAME TIME OR YOU WILL LOSE THE RESEVOIR IN THE RADIATOR. ONCE THIS IS ALL DONE EVACUATE THE AC SYSTEM, RECHARGE THE AC, FILL THE RADIATOR WITH COOLANT AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REPLACING THE RADIATOR, THERMOSTAT, AND THE RADIATOR CAP AT THE SAME TIME. I BELIEVE THE THERMOSTATS IN THIS VEHICLE DO NOT OPEN AS DESIGNED WHICH CREATES VERY HIGH PRESSURE IN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHICH CAUSES THE RADIATOR TO FAIL PREMATURELY.
AFTER STARTING THE VEHICLE CHECK THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT ROCK HARD, IF YOU DID NOT REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS ROCK HARD REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT.
THINGS TO CHECK:
CHECK THE RAD/CONDESER SUPPORTS FOR CRACKS YOU MAY FIND THEY ARE BROKEN IF THEY ARE REPLACE THE SUPPORT. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM FORD.

Second gear slipping.oil from trans entered cooling system


your transmission cooler lines run go your radiator, to help keep the trans fluid cool.. inside of your radiator cracked, and is allowing trans fluid to go into cooling system, and vice versa...you definately need a new radiator, and most likely a trans.. dont drive it.. you can flush the coolant system, and the engine will be fine, you can try flushing the trans if its not bad yet, maybe you can save it.. hope this kinda helps... need a radiator, and possibly trans.

No reverse


Do you also have a check engine light on as well?
Go to an auto parts store like autozone where they'll plug it up to a scan tool for the trouble code for free.
How do the forward gears react?...shifts rough?...clunks through gears?...slips? (engine speeding up but forward travel isnt)

Start on level ground...engine cooled.
If low or missing trans. fluid...any leaks?
Check for trans. fluid in the radiator (not the recovery). The radiator is a cooling unit for the fluid and in some cases can rupture , pushing fluid into the radiator itself. Check especially up towards the radiator area where the trans. fluid lines go into the radiator.

Is the access door for the oil filter in place? It needs to be.(has to do with cooling, and area of greater/lesser air resistense)
How about the fluid...smell?...dirty?...gooey?

For trans fluid ,check trans fluid level with engine on, hot and running in park, on level ground.

You have a 4L60E M30 series transmission. Has certain components (valves-solenoids) in it that can keep transmissions from shifting properly should the fluid overheat or the pressure become too high/low.
The usual trouble code this displays is P1870.
Sometimes it is simply a TCC valve out of whack and can be replaced

Transmission trouble


Radiator's with auto trans vehicles have transmission oil coolers built into one end of them,or top or bottom,and this is how the transmission fluid is cooled.I have seen a few over the years,where the tank in the radiator developed a leak,and engine water based coolant enters the transmission.Very bad,as clutch plates and bands have mostly paper,sometimes kevlar or high energy linings that are glued onto the steel clutch plates with water based glue.Well,when the water from the engine finally gets to this glue,it dissolves,and the linings just fall off the steel plates,and the trans no longer functions.If you catch it very early,this can be headed off by doing a total trans flush to remove any and all coolant from the transmission.Make certain this includes changing the filter..And of course replace the radiator with a new one.
