Automatic or standard? Automatics have a dipstick, you use a funnel and pour it in through the dipstick tube, Standards have a bolt on the transmission you need to take out and fill it up till it can hold no more

sounds like your shift lever for trans isnt making a tight connection when you put it in park....try shifting it in and out of park several times while trying to remove key......my lincoln does that occasionally and when i take it out of park and then back in it works......just a thought

SOURCE: how do i change the transmission fluid out of my

There are two ways to changing the transmission oil. If your going to change the transmission oil and filter, your going to have to drop the transmission oil pan to get to the filter and the oil will drain from there, but keep in mind that it will get messy. The other way to replace the transmission oil if that is all your going to do is to get a large bucket and a small hose the size of the transmission oil line. You can disconnect the transmission oil line from the radiator on the passenger side and connect the hose to the line and the other end to the bucket. Start the truck and try to do this with two people, one to hold the hose and one to start the turn off the engine when the transmission is almost out of fluid. DO NOT RUN THE TRANSMISSION DRY, so make sure the other person understands you when you tell them to shut off the engine. This will ensure that you replace most of the fluid in the transmission, once most of the oil fluid has been drained from the transmission, just reconnect the oil line and refill the transmission fluid through the oil dip stick. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: my 1998 gmc jimmy transmission is not shifting

I would try changing the fluid and filter again. Sounds to me like there is a lot of crud built up in it and another change would probably do the trick. It probably wouldn't hurt to add a bottle of Lucas Trans Fluid at the same time. It will help extend the life of your transmission. Black fluid would likely be clutch material that wears off over time.
If this doesn't work you are likely in the market for another trans. Hope this helps.

How to flush a transmission fluid on a 98 gmc jimmy


I would not recommend flushing trans fluid you risk
getting debris into the solenoids

You will get people telling you other wise

I just remove the pan clean it & refill

If a trans is old it may slip if get all the fluid out
by flushing

You drive a couple weeks then if it is okey you
drop the pan & change it again & that time change
the filter

I did once own a trans repair shop, I'm giving you
my opinion on 48 years personal experience,not
as a former business owner.

You change trans & power steering every 3 years
& never go over 30,000 miles on any vehicle

Use the correct fluids & NO ADDITIVES

Can we flush the transmission fluid in her GMC 1998 Jimmy?


You dont have to flush the fluid because transmission fluid has detergents in it that will clean the transmission.You need to go ahead and by a transmission filter, its only abou 20 dollars and it will come with the transmission pan gasket. All you need is the filter and fluid and a catch pan and you can do it in your front yard if you want to. I hope that helps you out!

Power steering fluid leaked out of 2000 GMC Jimmy


well it went somewhere, check all the lines and look for signs of recent fluid leaks, it will be very apparent if u lost that much fluid, most likely it will either be the power sterering hoses or the front shaft seal of the pump.

Your power steering tank will not hold more than 2 pints. First check with your owners manuel to be sure of the proper fluid. With the small bottle of steering fluid, add slowly. check every so often with the dip stick until it says full.
