    How did you fill the fluid in the trans? Those are sealed units and you need a scan tool to fill them.

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion


your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

What is the recommended millage for a transmission flush


Transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles, or more frequently if the vehicle is used for towing or carrying heavy loads.

When replacing the transmission fluid, first the mechanic drives the vehicle to get the fluid warm and then removes the drain plug at the bottom of the transmission (if applicable), or removes the transmission pan allowing the fluid to drain.

The transmission is then filled with fresh fluid, and the engine is started. With the engine running and the transmission in "Park," the mechanic checks the level of the transmission fluid on the dipstick. Then the vehicle is driven once more, and the fluid level rechecked; if needed, more fluid is added.

Using the wrong automatic transmission fluid may invalidate the manufacturer's warranty and affect the shift characteristics of the transmission. Consult the owner's manual for information on the kind of fluid to use.

Many automatic transmissions have a filter that can be replaced when changing the transmission fluid. Changing this filter may allow a closer examination of the fluid for debris, which may be a sign that the transmission is about to fail.

Hope this helps.

1998 vw jetta 2.0 automatic transmission does not works properly until it gets worm?


When was the transmission fluid last changed? It's probably contaminated with something that flows more easily when it's warm. Check the fluid and do a flush and fill if it isn't clean. If you know a reputable transmission mechanic, have him evaluate the fluid before the change - he should be able to tell you if it indicates significant wear on an internal component.

I have a 1998 Buick Park Avenue. 94K. Transmission seems fine, but sometimes feels rough (knocks) between gears. Then, if I turn the car off and wait a few seconds, it seems to "reset" and begins...


Could be something sticking.Trans filter should be changed at least every 40,000-50,000 miles.If it has never been changed or has over 50,000 since the last filter service would start with a fluid flush and filter change.Well hope this helps, and good luck.

Want to know if you recommend a transmission flush for my car? It has over 140,000 miles. What sevices do you recommend?


Yes a tranny flush would be great. I would recommend Either Going out and purchasing a new tranny filter, gasket and Transmission fluid from your local Auto parts store and doing it yourself, CHEAPEST. Or going to your local Valvoline to have it flushed. Cost is around $100

2002 Jetta TDI (Auto) hesitates when you put it in reverse (for a good couple seconds.) Car acts like it's in neutral. Could it be tranny fluid alone? Thoughts...


First would check the tran. fuild level to see if your fuild is low. Then i would recommend getting a trans. flush. This will improve your trans. greatly allowing the transmission to last a lot longer then it would if not having it ever done.
Good Luck!

Can we flush the transmission fluid in her GMC 1998 Jimmy?


You dont have to flush the fluid because transmission fluid has detergents in it that will clean the transmission.You need to go ahead and by a transmission filter, its only abou 20 dollars and it will come with the transmission pan gasket. All you need is the filter and fluid and a catch pan and you can do it in your front yard if you want to. I hope that helps you out!
