I put brake fluid where my transmission fluid how can i drain it and change it cheaply without having to change trany


probably too late as brake fluid under the extreme temperature turns to tar in a transmission
Suggest that it may be possible to salvage the transmission but it will require a professional shop to do it and you will have to have it towed there
It will require a full flush with the engine running to remove the contaminated oil in the transmission, transmission cooler , lines servos and torque converter
The cost is mostly transmission fluid and will run out to be between $200 and $300 dollars
Put that against a replacement transmission $1000 dollars and it is cheap

How do I know if my transmission is going? Changed the fluid and I think it is still jerking


A good thing to do next is put in a can of JB transmission stop slip - greatest stuff on the market. Has fixed many a transmission for me.

Also make sure transmission fluid is nice an pink. Remember even when you change you only get about have of it. The best method of change is to discounnect cooling line - connect hose, place in bucket - put funnel on fill port - with engine running - put new fluid in until you have the transmission capacity in the bucket.

It may work better if car is in gear. But be careful have a buddy site in drivers seat with foot firmly on brake and emergency brake on. Make sure car can't move.

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.

We have mitsubishi montero glx model. We want to change the transmission oil of same model. kindly tell us and show us the digram for same procedure.


Dont waste your time on just changing the transmission fluid. You will want to change the transmission filter or have it power flushed. Just draining and refilling will solve nothing if you are experiencing any problems with an automatic transmission. If you have a manual transmission there is a plug on the bottom of the transmission case remove the plug and drain the oil. Put the plug back in and on the left side of the case there is another filler plug. Remove that and fill with the appropriate oil type. Then put the plug back in and tighten to spec.

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.
