Why did you not tell us what car that is?
Did you look in the owners manual ?
Keep in mind you don't need to top off
any vehicle fluids,non are consumed
They only leak out, in which case you make
a repair
Seems unlikely your changing your own
fluids
Trans Fluid & Power Steering get changed every
3 years, so look that one up as well

SOURCE: Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.

SOURCE: where the plug for tranny on 96' jetta is located?

On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.

On the bottom of the trans pan,there should be instructions.

You warm up the trans to 180 degrees or more,hold the drain plug with a 22mm wrench or 7/8",then remove the 1/8" pipe plug in the center with a torx bit.
If filled correctly fluid should just barely run out.

Capacity is around 12 quarts total.
You only get about four to four and a half, if you remove the drain plug or remove the pan to change the filter. Some extra will drain down while your doing the filter.
You need to have a special container that hold two quarts at a time, then you put an air hose to it,to pressurize,and blow the new fluid in,warm up,and any extra will drain back into your fill container.
I found on my Lincoln LS, you can fill it by removing the 3/8" tail housing plug. The other rear drive fords may be similar.

You want to get the old fluid out including your power steering every couple years or 30,000 miles.

I drained mine twice, ( 8 quarts),drove it two weeks to make sure it shifted okey,then repeated. (16 quarts total) I prefer that to a flush machine. I used to own a trans shop.

Use Mercon V and a bottle or two of Red Lubegard on final refill.
Use the power steering additive from lubegard with the correct P/S Fluid.
They are the only two chemicals I ever use on a vehicle,that I know ,not only work, but are necessary on some foreign trans.

If you look at the drain plug when it is out,you will see an extension tube. That is how the correct level is obtained with the torx plug out and fluid warmed up. You need the vehicle up on stands and level,so you can get under it.

Reverse on transmission only works sometimes but the vehicle runs excellent in all other gears. I have not had a transmission tune up since I`ve had the car ( 0ne year). Car runs strong on highway but...


There is no such thing as a Transmission Tune-Up

You should be changing trans & power steering fluids
every 3 years & never over 30,000 miles on the fluids,
on any vehicle

The fluid is changed only because it's job is to remove
heat & it breaks down in doing so. Fixes absolutely nothing

The are no adjustments
You can not even reach the band adjustment on most
cars ,because of floor pan clearance & they are set one
time, when you build or rebuild it
There isn't enough band wear to need to readjust

Transmissions are only new (1) time
When manufactured & sent to the vehicle assy plant

I think the advice you were given ,will be the end result

You could try removing & cleaning the valve body,after that
you will have to rebuild it.

Transmission oil in the radiator


If the radiator has tranny fluid mixed in with the coolant, then you have an internal tranny cooler leak. At the one side of the tranny, in the saddle tank, there is a tube. This tube allows hot tranny fluid to enter the rad and be cooled before returning to the transmission. It should be totally isolated and submerged in the coolant tank. Occasionally they can leak, and the two fluids will mix. You will need a new rad to repair the problem. It would also be recommended to have the tranny fluid and the coolant flushed after wards. Oil of any kind does not mix well with coolant, and could cause future damage to the tranny more so than the engine.

Today I checked and added some tranny fluid to my 98 pontiac sunfire and now im having trouble shifting when i didn't before i checked it. what could be the problem?


as long as you didn't overfill the transmission, it shouldn't be giving you any shifting problems, unless , for some strange reason , there is a air blockage, and this is unusal, "next start the car up, and then let it run , while you pull out the transmission dip stick, and let it run for a very short time, while you go through the gears with the gear selector , then replace the dipstick, and re check the fluid level again, and then drive the car, and then see how it is shifting. also, make sure that the transmission fluid that you put in the car was the right kind for your car, " it should be dexron transmission fluid.

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.
