You need to rebuild trans or replace. When you smell burnt, means trans belts are glased over and failing.

Check fluid level and condition. If it smells burnt or is not a healthy red, then do change the fluid and filter. If it still does not work properly after the fluid and filter change, you will need to have the transmission looked at by a good transmission shop.

My transmission shifts through all gears okay but then vehicle starts to shake and shutter i let off of gas and its okay but still does it randomly


Is it an automatic? if it is check the fluid level is it low? if yes add fluid to the transmisson, if the fluid is a brownish color and smells like onions then the fluid is burnt and you will need to change the filter and 12 quarts of transmisson fluid. This is going to be the cheepest fix that you can do to find out if this is the problem, one the fluid is changed and it still does it then the bands and clutches are going out or the tork converter is going bad regardless it will have to be checked by a transmisson shop. the fluid and filter will cost you about $70.00 if you do the job yourself. Good luck and thanks for using fix-ya and hope this helps.

After warm up the transmission will not always shift up into Drive and overdrive causing the engine to race.


try checking the fluid level if it is even aa half pint off it can cause shift problems, if it is low add some Lucas transmisson oil condtioner this will help it shift smoother. also look at the color of the fluid is it brownish in color? if yes then it's time to change the filter and fluid. if you take it to a shop they chagre about $150.00 but it will keep you from damaging the transmisson. the oil and filter for the transmisson should be changed every 30,000 miles on any car. Thisis oone of the most overlooked items of maintence on cars peopel simply don't know about change the filter and oil till they have to pay for a new transmisson.

Problem shifting from second to third. Not shifting into third, RPM's just elevate. No code!


Check Fluid Levels when car is warm and running in neutral. Next, change the pan gasket and filter and fluid. NEVER let a shop do a T TECH Transmission Service. That sucks it out backwards and destroys the filter and will kill the transmission. make sure you drop the pan and replace the gasket and filter and the fluid.

First check fluid level on transmisson , if ok if the fluid is brown and smells lie onions then it needs to have the filter and transmisson fluid changed, and all the fluid needs to be changed not just the 3 or 4 quarts in the pan, the filter kit cost $14.99 plus 12 quarts of Dexron III fluid.

Resently ran out of gas now cars running bad / 93 caprice


Change the fuel filter again and if you have fuel injectors, you need to get them sleaned....I believe some of those oil one stop service places will do it. If you have a carb, you need to blow it out....but change that filter....maybe even a few more times if you had that stuff come out the first time.
