I have a 98 seebring that the transmission was making a winding noise. The guy at Auto zone told me to add Lucas to the fluid. Everything seemed fine, until the next day. The car only made it one block....


its a possibility that the tranny filter is plugged up, and not pumping any fluid to rest of tranny. thats why it is still cold, it just sits there. or the pump itself is bad. change fluid and filter first to find out.

Is the transmission sealed on a 1999 VW Sharan?


you need a haynes manual.because some new cars dont have dip stick to check tranny fluid.you have to locate a check fill plug on automatic transmission differential.its located on the right side.front of drive axle.for volkswagon you got buy the tool to squirt fluid in tranny.still get a manual it will show you place to put tranny oil.

Gearbox over heating light comming on


The tranny may have an intercooler and the fluid levels could be low. Check your tranny fluid levels and inspect for leaks. This tranny cooler will be upfront and look like a small radiator.

1998 Chrysler Voyager Transmission problem


FYI, My 99' just had a rebuild put in it $2000. Lent it to family, and even before they left I was worried that mileage etc, was just about time for it to go. I had no warning signs, just something in the back of my mind said "anytime now". They made it to their destination 3 or 4 hours away, no problem all the way,then next morning running into town for groceries, spit, sputter clank, bang, done ! Piece came right out through the top of the transmission casing , big hole & a gear laying on top of the casing. Needless to say, they felt bad, but I just had a premonition it was time. That's why when those things act up, don't play around, get it diagnosed a.s.a.p. Trying to get through the week, can cost you big time. Here's to hoping yours is an easy, inexpensive fix.

Manual transmission, but a short red tipped dipstick,looks like tranny fluid?


I have a 1998 saturn with a manual transmission and it took me quite some time to locate the dip stick. it is located on top of the gearbox close to the brake resevoir where the linkeage connects. it has a red plastic clip on top of the dip stick and submerges verticaly into the gearbox and is about six inches long. the red clip can easliy be hidden with black dirt and not seen. do not confuse this with the clutch reservoir fluid located to the right of the brake master cylnder. good luck.

Want to get it right the first time..


try checking the fluid level in the gearbox,rodeo dont have a dipstick so u have to undo the plug on the side of the gearbox just like a manual gearbox.if the oil is really low i suggest doing a full service on the gearbox,change the oil and filter is ideal for better results.
