What is error code 055 / 151 - can't erase It from my 1997 C230 benz - if I put new transmission fluid will it be fine ?


1.. The fault codes will remain until the issue with the transmission is fixed. If there was no issue the fault codes would not normally be generated.

2. Changing the transmission fluid will not fix the problem but there is no harm changing it,

3. Often with these codes there will be a problem with the transmission shifting gears. You have not mentioned in your question what, if any, drive symptoms you are having with the auto transmission. If you are having shifting issues I would suspect the valve body in the transmission will need cleaning and servicing provided there is no issue found with the Electronic Transmission Control .

P 0733 code what does that mean


You could be more specific with the issue:
  • Transmission type (Manual/Automatic)?
  • How did this issue appear?
  • Does the car change gears normally?
Your car seems to be an automatic transmission model?
So the fault code is "Gear 3 Incorrect Ratio"

This means that you may have:
  • Low transmission fluid level or dirty transmission fluid
  • Faulty or dirty shift solenoids
  • Transmission mechanical problems
  • Transmission hydraulic control circuit issue

What would cause my 1994 grandam transmission to stop working? the transmission was working fine with no indication of a problem. after stopping on a small incline it would not engage for drive


The transmission needs inspection.It can be gears got stuck up hard due to vehicle parked incline.
May be vehicle needs to be driven on slope for few seconds and then checked.
If can be solenoid issue or gear shift assembly issue.

For more transmission solution help, check the list mentioned below: -------


Yes the engine has to be out; it's not a easy task to replace transmission. You will required professional tools and wrench/ratchets.

Also its very time consuming.


For your help, I suggest you few help links with accurate solutions, showing how exactly to replace transmission and other transmission components.

2001 pt cruiser has issues getting up to speed, sort of jumpy


Sounds like transmission issues. When a transmission slips, you'll notice the RPM's climb before accelerating. Could be a number of transmission issues at play here:
  • low auto transmission fluid
  • bad or burned auto transmission fluid
  • bad transmission module

After 200 to 400 Kms of highway driving transmission doesn't shift properly. then you park or leave it over night it seems fine until you put another couple 100 kms maybe it gets hot


Hi CamI hate to say it but there is a good chance one of the gears inside the transmission/transaxle is having an issue... You can see if a transmission fluid change will resolve this issue for you however I have similar issues with my transmission and after about 2000km for me i have the same issue. In this case my transmission is at this point damaged it works and will continue to work but it isn't great on the car or for the drive.
With the price of the vehicle dropping you could look for a junk car which still has its transmission (ensure same make and model) and put that into your vehicle but to be honest the cost of the installation and replacement isn't worth it.

The tran will not shift out of first grear pulled the tcm relay and can shift it manual


Determining an IssueWhether the transmission is automatic or manual makes a difference. For example, in a manual Jeep, you might feel resistance when shifting from gear to gear, whereas in an automatic, the tachometer might rev up to 4,000 or 4,500 RPM before shifting. Although these are indicative of the same issue, the way the issue is represented in the vehicle feels totally different. Transmission troubles can be roughly summed up in two ways: either the car won't shift, or it won't shift without resistance. The two most common problems, and often the easiest to diagnose and repair, are issues with the transmission fluid and the filter. Checking for leaks is simple. Determine whether the transmission fluid (which is red) is leaking. The filter base, the drainage hole, near the engine, by the transmission cooler or radiator, and at the selector shaft or speed sensor are virtually the only places the transmission may leak. Replacing the filter if you have not done so also takes the guesswork out of remedying an issue, and can save valuable time and money. Persistent ProblemsSome problems, like a transmission refusing to shift between gears, or running the Jeep's tachometer to unreasonable highs before doing so, won't be cleared up by a once-over of the filter and fluid delivery systems. When a gear won't engage---or takes too long to engage---and all other systems have been absolved of responsibility, one must look elsewhere. Shifting problems, especially in a manual vehicle, can indicate some serious issues. Difficulty shifting can indicate transaxle issues, especially in higher gears, and often the only solution is a full rebuild of the transaxle (not exactly a DIY job). Repairs to a worn shift lever or shift linkage, commonly associated with such problems, can be attempted at home if you know definitively that these issues are causing the problem. Tansmission RebuildsMost transmission problems are not do-it-yourself fixes. A transmission is a complicated and intricate piece of machinery, with many parts that must all be working in harmony for the Jeep to keep running. If these simple fixes with transmission don't take care of the issue, it is very likely that the car will need to be taken to a licensed Jeep mechanic. For instance, in Jeeps, a complex mechanism called the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is often at fault for transmission issues, and repairs to the TPS cannot and should not be attempted at home by an unlicensed professional. TPS issues cannot be remedied by replacing transmission fluid, checking for leaks or replacing the filter---the job is simply too difficult to attempt on one's own. The sad fact about transmissions is that, after a while, they have the tendency to weaken and finally fall apart (if unchecked). Simple troubleshooting along with educating yourself on basic transmission issues is a surefire way to prevent overpaying for repairs; but remember, there's no way around having that transmission rebuilt if there's no alternative.
