SOURCE: leaking transmission fluid

This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can

SOURCE: Transmission issues after transmission flush

Well first off, coolant in the transmission will cause transmission failure if left in long enough. Proving why the radiator failed will be another story.

SOURCE: auto tranny wont shift out of first gear

Sounds like the modulator or a vacuum line..
The modulator tells the trani when to shift and is controled by vacuum presure..
Check for damaged or disconnected vacuum lines stemming from the trani..
Or maybe the modulator linkage is stuck..
Changing the fluid is a good idea too..

SOURCE: Milky white fluid on oil dip stick,, engine vibrates when idleing

Hi Joseph,

That white fluid is emulsified oil and water. Coolant is getting mixed with the oil and the engine whips it into a sort of milkshake.

The head gasket probably failed along on or more of the cylinders. This would explain both the oil/water and the rough running. Have you noticed a loss of power?

I'd run a compression test to confirm it. But it sounds like you need to replace the head gasket.

Sorry about the bad news,

Mike

Why was the transmission fluid milky in color on my 97 blazer


Water mixed into trans fluid or oil will cause a milky appearance. Either there is a bad seal on the trans and you drove thru flood waters or the heat transfer pipe for the trans that is inside of the radiator has failed. Don't drive!!! Have it towed to a trans shop and have them check it out or you may be replacing the entire trans.

Transmission lost all gears


check the level of the coolant as milky transmission oil is water in the oil ( busted oil cooler in the radiator.) or water in the replacement transmission.

As easy as it sounds, if you haven't done it already, just check your transmission fluid level. A low level will cause hard shifts, and sometimes some slippage in the transmission. The difference in the 2 trips could be just how hot the transmission fluid gets during the type of driving you do.

The only way that tranny fluid could get into the radiator is through the transmission cooler, which is inside the radiator. Maybe the replacement rad is NFG. In any case, the torque converter holds a lot of fluid, so just draining the tranny oil pan isn't enough. The torque converter needs draining as well to get all the bad stuff out. You probably just didn't get all of the old fluid out of it. Good luck with that.

Transmission downshifts hard when I let off the gas at slow speeds


Transmission sensor.your gear ratio was not set up properly..Its supposed to be mapped out soo the tranny shifts at a neutral rpm(around 2500-3400 rpm) its punching into gear correct?could have been a rebuilt tranny in which case they just replace the current problem..Or it could be a flywheel.1st thing to get done is to change the transmission fluid and filter.Goto midas or somewhere like they and they call it a flush and fill and it costs around $160 which is best case scenario.
