Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2003 2-wheel drive 2500HD silverado, i accidentally drained the tranny fluid out except for what was left in the pan instead of the oil, realized my mistake shortly after it would rev up before shifting into gear, then put and new filter and gasket on tranny and filled it up to the right amount, seemed to help and then today it wouldn't back up and it hesitates shifting from first to second, transmission junk?

Start it up to warm it up, check tranny fluid in park or neutral, if low, put more in. Hope it is junk though. If not low, you never know. I'd runit till it breaks and keep putting in fluid if needed.

SOURCE: Tranny pan gasket replacement problems

The (top hat) is a filter seal. If you did not change that seal then you may have damaged the old seal(still in the trans). You can remove the pan and take the filter back down. Look at the seal close, I would replace it. You can bend the old one, carefully with a screwdriver and get it out of the trans case. Tap the new one in with a socket. If your fluid is black,or there is metal in the pan then you have damage and the trans will have to be rebuilt.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid flushing

In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

SOURCE: no dipstick to put transmission fluid into

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?


GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

Can I drive in 2 wheel drive without oil in the transfer case


I wouldn't do this except in case of an emergency. Part of the system is going to free wheel but there is a part of it that is going to engage.

I agree with the oil pump. Drop the pan and replace it. Just because you had a slow roll that would not effect oil pressure. Make sure you torque the pan to specs, very inportant.

How do I drain transmission fluid (2000 sable ls(dohc))?


On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?

My 2003 galant is having trouble every time you get between 20 and 30 miles its bucks hard then keeps going when i checked the tranny fluid it very brown i want to replace the filter and fluid but have no...


The transmission fluid for Mitsubishis and Chryslers is imperative to have clean and to spec. You can either replace the filter and fluid by yourself or at a shop. If you do it yourself be certain to get the proper fluid. Take your time with it and have a pan ready to catch the old fluid @ 4-5 quarts or so. Be certain to replace the filter and clean the magnet (found in the pan if any) After removing the filter be certain no o-ring were left behind take note on how it came off so you can place the new one correctly. Before intalling the pan clean it out well, when placing bolt back in do not over tighten as they tap into aluminum and will strip easily, also over tightening can deform the pan. Take your time do it right. After the pan is back in added the proper fluid and amount and road test, get to temperature to check transmission fluid for final level. When in doubt ask for assistance of a friend or take it to a shop. If the pan has a drain on it I'd run the car for 100 miles or so and then drain the fluid again and replace with new. This will help insure most of the fluid is good as when you drain the tranny oil there is still quite abit in the torque converter that does not drain out. In the future I'd replace my oil/filter every 30K miles. This is cheap insurance.
Hope this helps,
Tom

Changed transfilter and fluid and now slip shifts and/or shift intermittent error


Sometimes if you have to wrangle the pan off(you didn't remove the cross-member) you will damage the shift solenoids. If you have a check engine light you can get it checked at any Advance Auto store for free. If the codes show shift A and Shift B they are pretty easy to fix,(they are on the bottom of the tranny,you have to pull the pan off again though) If not sometimes the tranny just gets used to the old fluid and acts funny when you put in new, might be time for a rebuild
