Turbo (E153) and Non-Turbo (S54) transmissions have the fill bolt on tranny facing the firewall to the cabin. Youll have to jack the rear of the car up.

Drain bolt is near the the driver side axle input.

It is advised to remove filler bolt before drain bolt in case drain gets stripped etc.

Use a longer hose with funnel from the top to fill

When i acclerate my car it jerks and when i slow down. i dont know if its a vaccum hose or the transmission

Check the transmissio fluid (when hot). Add if low.

If not low, drain the tranny fluid, and drop the tranny pan and look for metal shavings. If there are, you will either need to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt.

If there no metal shavings, add new fluid, and add a quart of Lucas Oil in replacement of 1 quart of tranny fluid. This will help the fluid to stick to the gears and other components in the transmission.

Chances are you have a rod sticking in the tranny. Make sure you purchase a new trannsmission gasket and filter (filter usually comes with gaskets.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How do i check the transmission fluid?

If its a manual transmission it should have a drain and a fill pug on the side of the tranny. usually u should take the top drain plug out n if any oil comes out the the oil level is fine if not add more. If the transmission is automatic then it should have a dipstick on the tranny itself.(dont confuse it with the engine oil dipstick)

Saturn SC2 manual transmission modification

Manual transmision gears actually bathe in oil and distrubute the lubrication around the gearbox simply by the gears being connected to each other. In these boxes, the oil is not pumped as it is in automatic transmissions.

Some automatics build up oil pressure to shift gears while others use computer control. Manual trannies do build up pressure slightly because the of the meshing gears and the forcing and displacing of oil between the teeth, but nothing like an automatic.

The fluid in auto transmissions is pumped through the filter like it is in the engine. Since manual transmissions don't have a pressurized oil system, you will need add a suitable pump which will take oil from the lowest point in the tranny case and run it through a filter head (available at any hydraulic supply house) and from the filter output, back into the tranny.

You could position the filter in the engine compartment if you like. It sounds like a lot of work with little benifit. You will still need to drill into the tranny to access the oil and back in to replenish it.

I would recommend placing a magnetic plug on the drain (if there is drain) to catch the worn metal parts. If your really eager, just change the tranny oil more often and clean the metal off the magnetic drain plug.

How to add auto transmission oil in 2005 mits montero

The Fill point is the Tranny Dipstick Tube, If you do not have a Dipstick Tube to Check the Tranny Fluid, You will need to get the Tranny Serviced from the Dealership or a Transmission Shop. On most of the Newer Imports they are ALL going with a Non Servicable Transmission that has to go in for Service. I know, It is REALLY Stupid! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Oil lines going to radiator

There are no oil lines that go from the Oil Filter to the Radiator.

There are Transmission Fluid Oil lines that go from the Transmission to the Oil Cooler on the Radiator.  Plugging these, or not having them connected - will cause rapid transmission failure from overheating.

Lots of people even add additional tranny coolers.  Especially if they do much towing...  If the line is broken right at the radiator - it must be fixed.  If it is broken a little ways away - you can reconnect the lines using tranny fluid hoses.
