How to flush transmission in 2000 Kia Sportage?.


there are two methods
1-- drop the pan and refill with fresh oil ( 1/2 the oil still left in the torque converter)
2--- take it to an accredited specialist auto transmission shop and have the oil changed while running ---this flushes out the torque converter as well as the transmission
although this method is by far the best if there is water contamination in the transmission, it is considerably more expensive as it takes around 2 times the capacity of the transmission and you have to pay for that oil
best have a chat with an accredited specialist shop and get a good prospective of which way you want to go

When my 1998 plymouth grand voyager runs a long time the transmission starts to have a hard time shifting or not shifting at all until it cools down.


How many miles? I'm guessing 150k atleast. A complete transmission flush/pan filter is probably your only option. Other than that, it is mechanical and needs to be rebuilt or the torque converter replaced, etc. Basically, if the flush/pan filter doesn't work, you probably need a new vehicle.

Should you flush your tranny ?


If you have a transmission that is not sealed, you should flush and fill every 30,000 mi. A sealed transmission, on the other hand, can go 100,000 mi. without service.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

How to do a transmission flush for a lexus LS 430 2001


All transmission flushes are done by machines at an auto shop. The process which happens is they drain the tran. fluid out then hook up there machine to run cleaning fluids from the top to the bottom for several minutes flushing out all the impurities and old oil. Then they fill back up with normal transmission fluid and your typically suppose to change out the fluid after a flush in as little as 5k miles. After that your good for a long time!
Hope this helps!
Good luck!!

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.

Transmission sticking


most people say no to a high mileage transmission flush if it hasnt been done before on the vehicle, I say if it starts to slip then flush it but if it is just sticking whop the old lucas trans mission oil to her! they have it at advanced it should free up those sticky valves! but if you havnt flushed it before now i would'nt
it is believed that over time your transmission fluid gets "gritty" from the clutches wearing , and over time your transmission becomes reliant on that grit to run "smoothly" I've done it and it came out fine but that was due to slipping from thin or burnt transmission fluid,
I would really try an additive to free up the valves before i'd do a flush!

Flush engine - transmission


Engine & Transmission Flush

You might have been told, by your dealer or mechanic that your engine oil or transmission fluid are very dirty, & an engine or transmission flush, is recommended. The flush will clean the engine or transmission, & those will last longer. This is only part true a clean engine or transmission will last longer, but I'm not sure that flushing them is the best way to clean them.


What Is An Engine Or Transmission Flush?

Flushing is forcing high pressure of fluid against the normal flow of the fluid. In simple words if the normal flow is left to right, the flush would force the fluid right to left.

This is done by connecting a machine that will force special solvents back through the engine and transmission. The idea is that by forcing cleaning solvents backwards through the system, it will get all the junk and garbage that has formed over time and "flush" it out of the system. In theory this sounds very good, but in practice, it can be dangerous.


The Dangers of Flushing your Engine or Transmission

Flush machines force high pressure cleaning solvents back through the engine and transmission and clean out some of the accumulated junk that has formed, so far all is good. Now the problems start, engines have small passages and galleries through which oil or automatic transmission fluid flow and there are one-way valves that keep the fluids from backtracking for whatever reason.

By using an aggressive cleaning procedure like flushing, large chunks of accumulated sludge are broken off and forced backwards through these galleries and valves and, more often than not, lodge tightly and block them. This cuts off the normal flow of the fluid and causes lack of lubrication in an engine and abnormal or no shifting in a transmission. The results are expensive repairs, or more often, engine or transmission replacement.

That's my knowledge about the subject, hope it was helpful,
Joe.
