SOURCE: Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not

75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.

SOURCE: Transmission is jerking violently then will not

That sounds like solenoid problems if this is an electrically controlled transmission. Fluid and filter change will likely NOT fix this. Flushing and filter change is preventive, not repair. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner and read the code(s). It should point out problems with transmission control. You likely need the services of a good transmission repair facility (many penny!).

SOURCE: I had the transmission fluid and gasket changed now it jerks when stopping why

Two possibilities here, First have the transmission fluid checked. You can do this yourself. with the car warmed up find the transmission dipstick, it's just like the oil dipstick, pull it out and wipe it off then reinsert it and pull it back out. at the bottom you will find the fluid level and a mark on the dipstick indicating where full is. If it is indeed full the your transmission bands are worn. The old fluid had enough "gunk" suspended in it to make it thicker and therefore you didn't get the "thunk" as it went into gear but now with new fluid you are hearing it.

SOURCE: 2002 Durango transmission sluggish when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was told that the Transmission needs flushed and new Fluid added

Usually if the trans is acting up new fluid isn't going to change a thing, that's usually a ploy to get you to spend some money, just what I have seen.. Q: does the trans act up more or less when hot or cold, if there is a difference with temp then changing the fluid isn't going to help you, but that's my opinion, I been a dodge tech for 17 years but anything is possible with cars......

Transmission slipping


Your tyranny is either low on fluid or getting ready to kick the bucket... one of the signs you watch for is the car Jerks hard when changing gears while cold but seems to be OK when warmed up... this can go on for months... one thing to try asap.. get the transmission flushed... and don't be a lead foot... if she is slipping it's not going to help if you give it more gas... but a lot of the time a good flush will help ( filter gets plugged and the transmission fluid isn't doing its job

Car jerks when changing gears


You do not say if it is an automatic or manual transmission (clutch). I will assume auto. This could be several things. It may be something as simple as low fluid or possibly the transmission filter needs to be changed and the old fluid flushed out. Or the transmission could be starting to go bad and would need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Need to know what will cause it not to go in gear


lots of things, may be low on fluid, may need to be flushed and filter changed. The transmission fluid should look pink, if any other color then flush and change filter. May be the linkage itself, module, etc. Hope this helps Tim

Transmission jerks on 1985 Crown Vic when cold. Doesn't want to shift, and transmission jerks violently when cold. Also, automatic transmission doesn't like to shift into 3rd gear, unless you exceed 45...


Unless you are low on fluid, I suspect you are in need of a rebuild. I have had similar problems before. Any shop will tell you to try a fluid and filter change. It has never brought one of mine back. I would suggest adding fluid to the top of the 'add fluid' area of the dipstick and no more. It can foam if it is to full, causing similar problems as being to low. I would add that if you have to replace the transmission - you need to consider that the car may not be worth the cost.
Good Luck.

Transmission does not engage when it's cold. Mechanic recommend flushing the transmission fluid. Is that a good idea?


I would try changing the fluid and filer in the transmission before I would flush it,that doesn't clean the filter or the fluid in the converter.
