You do not flush a trans, you could get fine debris
into the solenoids

No fluid change fixes a thing,just gives you new fluid
that actually removes heat for 3 years,then you change
it again

Afraid you burnt a clutch pack & may have to rebuild it.

I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.

SOURCE: '97 Ford Escort leaking auto transmission fluid.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

I have 2005 mitsubishi galant v6 transmission stopped working while driving every gear is like im in neutral. Transmission never slipped or anything


First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level and check for leaks. If the transmission is very low on fluid, for example a cooler line broke, it would cause this situation due to no pressure. If you do not see any outside leaks, but transmission fluid is very low, check your radiator overflow tank, if it is overfull and milky, this would mean the Trans cooler that goes through the radiator is leaking fluid into the coolant system.

Transmission problems


If you're losing fluid then it's due to an external transmission leak, a faulty vacuum modulator, or a leaking transmission cooler. No matter which one is behind this is needs to be repaired promptly as an automatic transmission can be damaged very very quickly due to a low fluid level.

Leak visible on transmission cooler


unless leak has gotten bad enough to lower the fluid level dramatically fixing it will not improve slippage, slipping is worn clutch surfaces or low engagement pressure, (low pressure could result from really low fluid) If you fill it to full and it still slips fixing the cooler will not help, but fixing the cooler leak is a necessary item to do anyway, keeps oil out of our ground water and off the roads making them slippery for motorcyclists.

Found transmission fluid in the rediator overflow. engine is 3.0 v 6


Your transmission cooler in the radiator tank is probably leaking, A radiator shop could probably replace the cooler but if the radiator is old you should replace the whole thing.

How do you replace the transmission cooler on my 89 oldsmobile cutlass supream


Your trans cooler is located inside one of the radiator tanks and would be expensive to replace.
You can either replace the radiator with new or used or cut the lines and install an external cooler as is used for towing. If the cooler in the radiator is leaking, you need to flush the system to remove as much oil as possible or it will cause hoses to soften and fail. Also wise to change trans fluid as well.
Always use double clamps when running rubber lines for cooler so they don't slide apart under pressure.

Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.


If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

I have oil in radiator ,transmission slips


Does the oil in the radiator look reddish? likely it does...You most likely have a failure inside the radiator where the trans cooler coil runs through it. Replace radiator and have trans fluid changed and flushed. If slipping continues trans will need a rebuild. (hope not)
