I have a 2005 chevy tahoe...i just bought it, and the transmission still has a pink color to it..but it smells a little burnt...should i do a transmissions fluid exchange or not?


Hi there,

I would have to say YES, YES, YES !!!!

Modern transmissions are an amazing piece of electronic/mechanical machinery, but they rely on a special trans fluid (with special properties) to keep the internal components conditioned, keep pressures up and to prevent premature malfunction from overheating.

Trans fluid can be compared to our own blood - bad cholesterol levels in human blood will cause heart attacks...the same could be said for auto transmissions, containing bad trans fluid.

Until recently, manufacturers were slow to admit that transmission fluids should be changed sooner, rather than later (most manufacturers were/are suggesting changing fluid every 100,000km), but due to the high numbers of trans failures ocurring, it is now being suggested that trans fluid should be changed every 50,000km to be safe.

Remember: use ONLY CHEV APPROVED trans fluid (nothing else) and also change the trans oil filter at the same time. A complete transmission flush is also a good idea, if you intend on keeping the vehicle for a long time.


Cheers,

Transmission warning ligth on dash board willnt go off


ok if it is indeed a transmission light...does your car drive funny in any way? since it came on? anything at all? some ford transmissions are know to have a falty transmission fluid level sensor. or your transmission is indeed low on transmission fluid. If you know where the transmission dip stick is pull it out with the engine on, wipe off and put it back in, wait a second and pull it out again and compare the actuall fluid level to where it should be according to the dip stick... remember do this with the engine ON that's the most important part of checking trans fluid levels since they work by pressure. If its low and it looks RED ...the fluid is good just need to add some. if the fluid is dark color ( if it's not bright red like blood) then im afraid you might have to go to a transmission shop. NOW if it's red and low go to Auto Zone and have them check the "light" and have them help you find the proper fluid for your specific model and they should help you add the fluid too VERY VERY IMPORTANT to get the right kind of fluid. SECOND VERY IMPORTANT PART..IF your fluid level is GOOD, the color of the fluid is RED (real red like blood nothing else!!!!) no any OTHER SHADE OF RED...RED!!!! ok? and it doesn't drive funny at all keep driving it and just have auto zone check the light ..just to see what its saying that is wrong. dont drive on low fluid.... just straight to autozone or you can damage your transmission.

Cant get top gear when engine warmed up 280se 126 1984


ok.. so find the transmission dipstick and pull it out with the engine running, if the fluid is red...very red like blood red then you probably need a transmission flush make sure the flush includes the transmission fliter changed. if its dark or brownish color...sadly you will probably need a transmission..if it's low on fluid ,add trans fluid ... a junk yard unit should be no more than 500 dollars

AFTER HOW MANY MILES CHANGE TRANSMISSION OIL


if the trans, fluid is a brighter red ,[like a red cream soda] it is not burnt.
it is fine[in my eyes].
if the fluid is dark [dirty] i would change it, and filter in trans.

i have a 1999 gmc suberban, trans. fluid is red like cream soda runs great with 350 thousand klicks on it and never changed.

some vehicles[ trans in front might be different]but i still say if fluid is like red cream soda in colour [brighter red in colour]it is fine

Do I need to change the transmission fluid in a 2005 Honda Odyssey?


Hello rsl4god.....Yes indeed without doubt... you should change transmission fluid regularly using only original Honda transmission fluid. This is a simple drain & refill job on the Odyssey
.
Heres my take on transmission fluid...Trans fluid is the life blood of your transmission. A quality trans fluid is more important to your trans than a quality oil is to your engine. As heat in the trans goes up, the life of the fluid (and your trans) goes down. Sadly most people ignore the transmission until it breaks.
Hope this answers your question...

Transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto


VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
