Transmission dip stick keeps popping out

After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles

2003 Audi A4 1.8T FWD. First gear engaging with a **** after changing fluid

Insufficient fluid ?
Did you use a scanner to monitor the fluid temperature while re filling trans?

Try 'Adaption'.

Turn on Ignition key without starting throttle all the way to the floor...hold for 10 seconds and turn off key.

This MIGHT reset trans to factory default.

You may have disturbed the wire loom at the trans which is known to corrode and resistance changes,. Without a scanner you cannot check solenoid operation.

Good many liters will i consume if I'll going to change the automatic transmission fluid of my toyota 2c engine.

V6 or 4 cylinder engine?

A trans drain and refill is about the same as an engine oil change.

Find the trans. Under the trans is an oil pan, much like the one on the engine. There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the trans pan.

Depending on the model of trans it can hold say 6-8 quarts of fluid. Only about 2.6 will drain out the pan as the rest is held in the torque converter.

The easiest approach is to measure how much fluid drained out and refill with the same amount.

The trains has a dipstick. Check fluid when hot, engine running after moving the shifter from Park to Low and return. The dipstick will have a "Hot" and "Cold" mark, use the hot mark if the fluid is hot. The stick will also have the type of fluid used, typically Dexron III or now called "ATF" fluid. Read the container to make sure it is a substitute for Dexron III.

As only 1/3 to 1/2 of the total fluid amount drains out of the pan at one time you will need to do a few drain and fills over time to get most of the old fluid out.

Does my chevy silverado 2004 v8 2wd ls transmission have a filter and drain plug

No drain plug, the filter is inside trans. Remove trans oil pan (it will be full of tran fluid so loosen bolts on one end and work your way to other end) May have to take bolts out of a cross member and slid it back to get to all the pan bolts. The filter is flat and you'll see it once the pan is dropped. Pull straight down to remove. Clean out sludge and old fluid from pan and scrape old gasket off.
Push new filter into place. Its a good idea to use gasket sealer to help keep it from leaking and to help hold gasket in place so bolt holes stay lined up while bolting up pan. Tighten all bolts evenly. Then refill tran with the fluid your service manual list. Operate your truck in all gears (shifting back and forth) and recheck trans fluid level. Its not a hard job to change filter and fluid. If you can change your own motor oil and have a rachet and sockets then you couldnt have any problems. Just get your filter and trans fluid from your local auto parts store like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts.

When do I change automatic transmission fluid?

Your manual will recommend when to change. I would recommend every 20k miles or 2 years. This is the most neglected maintenance. Change intervals depend on the type of driving u do (more often if u tow something, do lots of stop and go driving, etc. I don't think u tow w/ a corolla!). U can only drain a portion of the fluid. Most torque converters hold more fluid than can be drained, and they are sealed. The only way to drain them is to drop the tranny, or pull the engine to get the torque converter off. Watch out for trans. fluid change offered by the fast lube type places. All some of them do is jam a hose down the fill tube and **** out what they can. You'll be left w/ a dirty trans filter and poor fluid change. Many vehicles have a magnet to catch metal filings floating around from normal wear and tear. This junk will remain in your trans. pan if you don't remove the pan to change fluid. Congrats for not neglecting your tranny! Most people don't worry about it 'til it stops shifting,countrycurt0
