There is nothing you can do about it now, if the transmission is damaged or the fluid is dark and smells burnt you have big problems coming up in the near future.

SOURCE: transmission fluid change vitara

hi first check the level of fluid by pulling the dip stick out . clean it and put back in to c if anything left in it or not.

if no oil is left open the engine cap and buy the right fluid and put in it and than check the oil level by parking your car on level surface.

if u want to replcae the engine oil just open the bolt underneath the engine and drain the oil and close it before u feed in the oil.

SOURCE: changing manual transmission oil in 2003 grand

it has a drain plug and a filler plug but you should never need to change the oil ,but the oil to use is EP90 hypoid oil as gearbox has helical cut gears which need exteme pressure oil .a top up yes maybe but change the oil in a manual box is not something anyone does ,yes i know its in the 100.000 mile service check list but no one ever does it in a garage .because by this time the vehicle needs a new clutch and you have to drain the oil to do the clutch

SOURCE: i just want to know--when

I believe the maintenance schedule recommends transmission service every 30,000 miles on this vehicle. So if it hasn't been done before go for it. Perform this at 30,000-60,000-90,000-120,000- and so on. Good luck.

Hi Maria.

If you have the manual shift then it is usually the transmission fluid in need of replacement. The transmission fluid is probably dark brown and must be replaced. If replacing fluid does not help, then it is usually a defective transmission.

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.

Change the transmission oil on an automatic gearbox ? Suzuki vitara


drain the fluid just as you would change the engine oil. Go ahead and change the filter at the same time-you will have to remove the tranny drain pan. You can get the filter and fluid from Auto Zone and they can advise what fluid and how much. Filter should come with new gasket.

The Automatic Transmission Fluid is supposed to be checked with the car running so there's a chance if you added fluid you've overfilled it. Also, Ford products require Type-F transmission fluid. Using the wrong kind can adversely impact the transmission's performance as well as do damage. Re-check the fluid level with the car running (preferably after 5 minutes or so to get it warm) and see if it's been overfilled. If not, verify if you've added fluid what type you used. If you used the wrong type, you should take the car (or tow) to a service station to have the fluid changed.

Slipping Automatic Transmission


The transmission fluid gets dirty especially over a period of time and the filter gets clogged and gunk builds up. This will cause the transmission to slip and you should check the transmission fluid stick at least twice a month to make sure it is at the proper level or have your transmission tuned up by a trained professional at a dealership or transmission shop once a year. You will be glad you did. Treat your car with love and it will be good to you.

Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when


Several things could be causing your problem:
  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles
