Not sure what the question is, but the transmission fluid pump requires removing the transmission from the engine, since it is behind the torque converter.

1996 jimmy running and moving good. stoped at a stop sighn went to take off could not hardly move. then it started smoking relly bad checked tranny fluid it was empty

oooo not good at all. can you get under your car and see if there's a big splatter of red tranny fluid under it? and if there is your seals are gone. hmmm , replacing it is an option. add fluid in after changing the filter and pray your pump has not or does not blow out do not drain any tranny fluid still in it or you most def will blow the transmission pump if you do. GOOD LUCK trannys are a expensive thing to replace and junkyards are not the place to find one

Transmission pump failure?

You may need a tranny or vacuum modulator that controls the shifting of the tranny. You may also need a new filter. Did the fluid smell burnt? That\'s alot of miles if original tranny.

Hi can any tell me how to drain transmission oil on a pontiac grand-am 1996

With no dipstick, you should find a plug,( 7/16",under vehicle to see it) on the backside of casing near right axle, for checking/filling fluid, but other than that, remove the pan. Might want to do filter as well, when pan is off, if it hasn't been done in a while.

How to change transmission fluid and filter in a 2001 kia sportage, my car sounds as if it is not switching gears, the other day i was sitting in park and the rpms jumped up to like 2 and then it was quiet...

the is a drain plug on bottom of tranny. Remove all tranny fluid. Then remove bolts on the tranny pan, remove pan. Remove couple filter bolts and change filter. Replace new gasket and tranny pan. Fill up tranny with 8 quarts or whatever your user manual says with correct fluid.

How do you remove transmission fluid pump 97 taurus 3.0 liter

Transmission pump is inside the transmission, not under the pan. You should check your sensor pack and transmission control module about next. Trans shop can check it out for you, since this sounds like the tranny is in limp mode.

1988 xj6 transmission front pump seal

The two seals should be fairly cheap. the seal itself shouldnt cost more than 5-10 dollars for each one. its a little round ring looking piece of metal with a rubber lining. to fix the front pump seal you'll have to drop the whole transmission and remove the torque converter which (will slide off without complications). the seal will be right behind the torque converter attached to the transmission... it should just pop out and the new one should just pop in. Fro the rear seal all you have to do is take out the drive shaft from the transmission and the seal will be on the end of the transmission.. it should also pop out and the new one should pop right in also. However, if the transmission was drivin with little or no tranny fluid and would not go into gear ..( meaning it would just go into high rpms and not move) your gears are probably shot. If it hasnt been drivin an easier way to tell if this may be the case is to look at the tranny fluid and see how dark it is. if it looks like motor oil instead of transmission oil its probably burnt up... if thats the case it will also smell burnt.

Automatic Transmission fluid level

Here is the step by step on how to do it.

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

My rpms

If I understand your problem correctly, you have a transmission problem. The Taurus/Sable platform has had several tranny related problems, especially from lack of fluid/filter changes at the required service frequency.

You may have a low level of Transmission fluid, or you could have a serious problem. Either way, continuing to operate your Taurus in this manner will cause expensive damage.

Please check your Transmission fluid level. If you see that it is low, be sure to use the proper type of fluid for your car.

If you do not have a low level, then you should take this Taurus to a trained mechanic, and have your transmission evalutated.

Good luck!
