You change transmission fluid every 3 years

While 90k is only 54,000 miles, ten years is how
old my lincoln is & I changed mine 3 times & it should
have been 4 times

You go by years, not miles anymore

Time used is heat cycles & the fluid will only last
for 3 years including 2 hot summers ,then it won't
remove heat & you trans clutches fail

You have to use the NEW Matic S from a nissan dealer,
as no other fluid is correct for your jatco trans at this point
in time

You add one ten oz bottle of red Lubegard to ALL your vehicles
transmissions with every change

You DO NOT FLUSH a trans as the fine debrib could get
into the solenoids

You have to add a return line filter at the cooler in front of the radiator, because your trans has NO Filter, only a screen bolted to the valve body

Same trans as my 3 week old 2014 Frontier

What you read was IF it was slipping & you change the fluid
it will slip worse,in that case the damage was done already

Ten years is a death sentence to any trans
Change it anyway,not many miles on it

Don't change it if you got shifting problems you don't want
to discuss here & that is why your here

You remove the pan on the bottom of the trans
Wipe it out,clean the magnet & you should have a
fill tube & stick next to the motor to add the MATIC S

The return line filter will be your ONLY protection for that
Nissan trans, as a screen is not going to stop anything micro
scopic particles ,nor will a regular filter on most transmissions

You get a Filtran Magnetic Return Line Filter & install
that on the line that goes from the surface to air cooler to the
trans case

The other line you can see goes to the radiator first, then to the
out front cooler,that is the hot oil pressure feed,your putting
you little round filter in the other return line

You can put one of them on the power steering also or change
a steering rack when it fails
Have to do that or new racks are not warranteed

Transmission shift control solenoid

This is caused by old transmission fluid that becomes a suspension of transmission metal shavings and the hydraulic fluid (or transmission fluid) you can try flushing the tranmission bt it will probably take a few times and be really expensive ( s oyu will need to change bout 2 gallons of fluid each time its changed. or have it cleaned out by a rebuild specialist*.

* who will tel you something other then what I just told you because it is less profitable to rebuild a trans rather then selling you a remanufactured transmission.*

I have 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid and now it has about 90K mileage on it. I never change the transmission oil for it. Since it's transmission is eCVT, do i need to change the transmission fluid at all?

yes, it is always recommendable to change the transmission fluid in cars and trucks, look at your owners manual , it will tell you when you should have changed the fluid and how often.

Hello. I have a 1998 Toytoa Corolla LE. When I bought the car (private party) and got it checked out at a mechanic at 84k miles he told me there is a recommended 90k maintenance I should do. I have now...

A lot can happen by 90k miles.
CV joints need to be cleaned and relubricated, timing belts need changing, brakes usually need to be replaced, fan belts need to be checked, water pumps need checking, etc.
Normally you figure you are almost half way through the life of the car, so almost anything could need work. You need to check long term effects, like transmission and differential fluid levels, etc.

But no, there is no reason to go to a dealer.
Any mechanic will know what to do and can easily do it with good parts.

When the preform the transmission service they will drain you transmission of its ATF fluid an replace it with new fluid. It is essentially an oil change for your transmission.

Lots of forgein car dealers say no but ive own and service nissan toyota and i dont change the fluid because you never get all the old oil out and then you mix new and old, what we do is called a trany flush done with a bg flush machine and is done every 30,000 miles unless its syntheic trany oil then at 100,000 miles, the flush is done with a cleaner and then a conditioner and removes 100% of the old oil. hope this helps.

Go to a transmission shop not a car care center, i work at meineke and we only do transmission flushes up to 90k, after that we refer customers to aamco for that very reason, another thing is that the transmission filter may not pick up the clean fluid it needs to be replaced after 100k usually. So as i said i would recommend a transmission shop like aamco, because if you have problems its on them to fix it.

Bring it to a trusted local mechanic. Could be vacuum, solenoid issues or fried.
Before you go you can chech fluid level and fluid colr. Check in your owners manual for transmission fluid level checking. Color should be reddish or maroon, not dark brown or black.

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.

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

Transmission shifts irratic when cold

If fluid level is good, the hydraulic value of the trans fluid maybe low or worn. If fluid is old or burnt, (never been changed, or high mileage,) sometimes not a good idea to flush. Highly suggest LUCAS (ONLY) Transmission Treatment, carefully read instructions on bottle. Transmission replacement is expensive, following maintance will prove rewarding! If you wait to long to flush trans your worse off!!! Hopefully helpful!!!!
