SOURCE: Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not

75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy silverado service 4 wheel drive light

I had a similar problem with the Service 4 Wheel Drive light which came on intermittently then became more consistent in the message center display. It would go into 4 wheel drive if the message center did not display the Service 4 Wheel Drive message in the message center, but not when the message was displayed. I found the transfer case switch module in the dash was defective, and it has been working with no other problems for three years.

2005 chevy impala.. transmission slipping or something. this car has about 193,000 miles on it.. im wondering why its slipping (transmission) and if its even worth fixing...???


HI,
First, verify the transmission fluid level is correct - look in the Owner's Manual for info. 2nd get a transmission fluid replacement - do NOT do a 'chemical flush' it could make it even worse....just have them drain out ALL the old fluid and put in new fluid. Shouldn't cost more than $100. If you have any Check Engine Lights or other unusual lights on, get those checked out, too.

Per KBB.com car is worth about $2500 if you sell it yourself; dealer might give your $1500 but only $500 w/a bad transmission. A rebuilt transmission would likely cost $2000....do NOT fix it. 193K miles is a lot on any car especially an Impala. Time a for another car.

GL,

If the transmission took on water, chances are simply changing the filter and fluid wont really help. When you changed the filter you probably only replaced 4 or 5 quarts of fluid, your transmission could hold anywhere from 9 - 14 quarts of fluid total (depending on which model transmission you have). You're going to want to get a full transmission flush. With water involved, you may have also knocked out a shift solenoid (or more), there's also a possibility of damage to the bands and gears inside. Best thing I can recommend is to get it to a garage that does transmission service and request a flush (make sure you tell them what happened) With it being a 95 it most likely isn't an OBD2 diagnostic system (but it could be depending on how late in the year it was built) if you have a check engine light on and it is OBD2 there's a chance a code reader might tell you if it is a solenoid. No check engine light; start with a flush and go from there.
Unfortunately transmissions are tricky monsters that sometimes require a specialist to diagnose and fix... I hope this helps, good luck

Transmission jerks into gear when turning corners at a normal speed


Check your transmission fluid level; if OK, check outer CV joints; if OK, flush transmission fluid and change the filter. Also "BG Transmission" is great for torque converters and transmission slipping.

No gears work acts like its in neutral


Your transmission is worn out Bands are burnt and probably needs a rebuild or replacement. Not much doubt about it.Sorry bud its dead. Was it a transmission flush you had? With a filter change? What made you decide it was time to have ****** fluid changed? Starting to slip a little, hesitating when starting out, was probably going out before you took it in.

My 04 impala slams or shifts hard when i start out from a complete stop or if im slightly rolling??? I just bought the car and it has 93,000 on it. According to the carfax the tranny was flushed at 70,000....


On every automatic transmission. you have whats called a tourque converter. If a flush and tranny fluid fill did not work before its not gonna work again. Your tourqe conver has gone bad or for some odd reason become detatched from the transmission housing. One thing that i know with all my experience you should never have your transmission flushed, especially more than once. Replacing your fluid is one thing but a tranny flush is just one thing auto manufactures should have never come up with. Also Check to see where the flush was done at. If it was done at a Jiffy lube, i doubt it was even done. BIG SCAM WITH JIFFY LUBE AND THERE TRANNY FLUSH SERVICE (check youtube for news reports). Now expect to pay a pretty penny for this becuase you have an automatic transmission. Normally on a manual, it would be your throwout bearing, but becuase the impala was never released with a manual tranny at least in that generation, your kinda stuck with taking it to a service shop. GO TO A GM SHOP. and ask them to fill the tranny with a special tranny fluit called DEXRON VI ONLY. Dexron is the only fluids that meets GM's standards.

2007 impala engine light came on. I checked my transmission fluid and it was low, I filled it and the light is still on. How do I turn it off.


That lite may indicate some other problem. Also check that you gas cover is tight, a loos cap will cause the lite to come on.

1996 Ford Winstar w/ recent tranny flush


well, i used to work at a transmission repair shop, and it is true that you're supposed to overfill these transmissions, but only by ONE quart. 4 quarts would certainly cause a big problem if thats what they did. the speedometer issue however is related only to the vehicle speed sensor which is a common problem on this transmission. i would STRONGLY recommend you bring it to a transmission repair shop (obviously a different one than before) becuase this sensor gets corroded and can be just awful to replace.

also, with your speed sensor not working, your transmission will go into limp mode and will have at most two gears. this is normal. as for the fluid leakage, it could be related to them over-overfilling the transmission and the fluid coming out the vent.

Abs light stays on and traction control stays off in my chevy impala ls the transmission is acting up in drive i took out a fuse called [trans sol] now it drives but acts up in reverse


abs, traction control, tire pressure monitor and fuel economy indicators all use a speed sencer in the wheel hubs, save yourself a lot of greaf and have a mechanic do a code read and test the sencers, i had the same issue and it messes up the whole system, i ended up replacing one hub assembly for about $190,
as for your transmission acting up, put the fuse back in and change the fluid, DO NOT HAVE THE TRANNY FLUSHED, JUST A FLUID CHANGE!!! if you want to drive another day. todays tranmissions are way more complex than they need to be and have many solinoids and sencers that can and do fail, good luck.

I have a 2004 Impala that transmission jerks into gears periodically when doing a bit of stopping and starting off. Have talked to other Impala owners,and some have had tranny problems also. It just...


This is common problems to the transmission when the fluid is getting to dirty and the transmission fluid and filter needs to be replaced. The transmission fluid and filter should be replaced every 45,000 miles to ensure there is no dirt causing the shift servos from binding. The other thing to is that when the transmission fluid get's to dirty, the fluid gets thicker. It retains fluid retention which can cause conflicts in the transmission sensors. What your experiencing is, your transmission is not shifting back to first gear and sticking in to 2nd gear. When you get on the gas peddle, the transmission sensors realize that it needs to be in 1st gear, so as the engine's RPM goes up and the transmission drops back to 1st, you get the jerking condition which will in turn cause you a $2,300.00 transmission replacement. For now when starting off from a stop, let the engine creep forward on it's own first to ensure that the transmission has shifted in to 1st gear. Then get on the gas peddle lightly till you have the transmission serviced. $100.00 transmission service is better then $2,300.00 transmission replacement. Good luck and do not have a transmission fluid flush, just filter and fluid replacement.
