I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and I accidently put motor oil in the A/T oil spot. What should I do?


Don't run the engine at all. If it was started, the transmission pump will have pumped the motor oil all through the transmission-go have it professionally flushed. If the engine was not started, drop the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and get a new transmission filter. Put it back together and run the engine until the transmission fluid gets hot. Then change the fluid and filter again. After this, monitor the transmission fluid dipstick. If any traces of more motor oil in the pink fluid, do the drain and change filter a third time. (buy a case of transmission fluid-each drain and change will take about 6 quarts.)

I WANT TO CHANGE MY TRANSMISSION FILTER ON MY 2003 CHEVY MALIBU. hOW MUCH FLUID WILL i NEED ?


  • When you change a transmission filter the general rule is you loos roughly 1/4 - 1/3 of your total transmission fluid capacity.
  • I would buy 3 quarts and dump two in the transmission after the filter/gasket change. Put your foot on the brake and go through the gears to fill the pockets in the transmission up. Then put then check the fluid and add some more as necessary. Should be around 2 1/2 quarts total you will loose in the filter change.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

No. your problem is in the transmission not your engine, flush transmission fluid and put new fluid is good idea to change the filter too. good luck.

The transmission seems to slip when going in reverse in my Ford Explorer 1994 (OK going forward). Transmission fluid is OK.


have one myself w/over 400.000 miles suggest you change transmission fluid and filter,just add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change. never had problems w.mine. but firm beleiver in lucas oil and transmission and fuel treatments. just trying to see how far i can go w/mine. the lucas treatment added to your fluid and transmission fluid and filter change frees up stuck valves in the transmission. sounds alot like you may have a stuck valve body in the transmission to me.pull your transmission fluid dip stick,this is going to sound strange but go with me for a second please, does the fluid smell burnt? do'nt be scared to put it on your finger and sniff it. if it smells like burnt expletitive,then it needs replaced and filter too. just please add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change,you will not regret it. the treatment [lucas] will cost an extra $11.00 onto the fluid change,trust me, you will not regret it!fluid changes are a must for ford explorers 4x4 don't know why,but they demand baby formula. lucas,i've found is that formula. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here 24/7 for you 7days

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.

Changing transmission fluid ?


Let a mechanic do it. Messing with your transmission is crazy. If you have never had your transmission fluid changed I wouldnt even do it. Changing it might cause problem, the transmission is used to a thicker fluid seeing it would be older. Putting new thinner fluid in could ruin it
