Does Reverse work? If yes, then a fluid change isn't going to help.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 auto. At start up the trans pump sounds like lack of fluid whine. Put into gear & it drives for few minutes then slips to the point of stopping, if left idling it...


Likely it's better to leave the bands alone. The servos have plenty of travel and unless it was "hammering" into gear (from excessive clearance there) likely adjusting them won't do much. Pan rail is stamped pretty deep...carb cleaner wont clean it up enough to read?
Replacing the filter may help if it's plugged up. If not, don't bother replacing it...problem is internal and filter won't change much of anything.
You can only partially replace the fluid because the converter has no drain. Therefore, use cheap oil and a container of lucas conditioner. If it helps, do the change again at 3,000 miles and use a higher quality fluid along with another lucas.
If you can't get the unit #, buy both filter kits and make note of which is for what transmission. Return the unused one.

Trans just started slipping 2002 Dodge Stratus with 54000 miles no signs of problems before do you check trans level in park or drive?


You allways check the transmission fluid level in car after the car has a few minutes to worm up. If you have not had the transmission fluid and filter change in a long time then you need to do it. The fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles to keep you from having problems. Hope this will help you.

My 2004 pontiac montanas tranny slipes occasinally when taking off from a stop light.


the cause of this is either low fluid in the trans or a leaking internal seal in the trans, this causes a loss of hydraulic pressure and then the resaulting slippage

Trans downshifts with gas tap


If the trans has a whine and shifts a little hard then you need to take if to a service center and have the trans flush and filter changed this might correct the problem. But if you have never had the trans fluid change and have 100,000 on it trans might be going bad. Trans fluid and filter should be changed every 40,000 miles.

Transmission fluid on 06 equinox


Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

Toyota Prius 2008 - Transmission or or fluid?


Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.

Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not


75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.
