All manual trans do have synchro, yes. Synchromesh trans fluid is merely another name for high performance synthetic manual trans oil. Ordinary gear oil (not extreme pressure diff oil tho) is used by many many transmissions, yes, and probably won't harm your trans, but it is always best to use the maker's recommended grade, so maybe you'll be changing it out.
if you are talking about the transmission then the trans needs to be flushed a simple drain and fill is not enough the torque converter holds a lot of fluid and if it is cold where you are maybe frozen.auto trans fluid can mix with antifreeze.
Trans Fluid & Coolant --- in transmission ? Has to come out & be rebuilt & a new radiator,if that caused the issue from a failed internal trans cooler You can't flush out a trans & have it work The clutches are ruined & the system gummed up from the coolant
It does not have any fluid to work with. You also burned out many of the internal transmission components if you drove it until it was dry. If the fluid just poured out onto the driveway, then keep the vehicle off. Remove the radiator and fix or replace it. Refill the trans with proper type of fluid.
If the trans and radiator fluids mixed, which can happen if the radiator tanks leak between chambers, then your trans is corroded inside. The radiator can be tested if you can not tell by looking at the Antifreeze. The bottom radiator tank is suppose to be separate and as long as it leaked on the ground, the 2 fluids did not mix.
Your biggest problem now is to determine whether the trans is any good without spending money to fix the radiator. If you take out the Radiator, some places will test it free. Ask them about whether the 2 fluids mixed. It will be key to knowing the worst case condition.
Your trans fluid oils all the bearings and bushings and pumps inside the trans. If the engine is not turning, the trans will not burn out its parts. If the engine is idling, the trans will burn out without fluid.
I attempt to give the cheapest Solution to your problems. You can only test the Radiator separately by removing the radiator or having the vehicle towed in. There is no way of knowing if the trans was damaged until fluid is restored to the trans. If the 2 fluids mixed, it is a bad thing. If the 2 fluids were not mixed, then it is better for the trans, but bad things happened to the trans without having fluid in it. Sorry I can not give you better news.
check your coolant fluid in the radiator and coolant pressure tank on side of the fender. nissan has some issue where coolant mixes with trans fluid in trans and the transmission goes south. if your coolant is not nice and green, than it mixed with trans fluid and your trans along with the radiator will have to be replaced. also check your trans fluid and make sure its nice and red, not pink and milky like strawberry milk. that is another sign of radiator cooler failure. start there and let me know what you find.
most likely trans fluid is mixing with the coolant,most cars share the radiator with coolant and the lower part as a trans cooler but sometimes the spot that keeps the fluids seperated leaks and they mix,,,bad bad bad,can ruin your trans if you get coolant in it,dont drive it,tow it and replace the radiator and flush the cooling system and trans
no that is the trans if it smells and looks like gear oil you need a transmission trans for transmission lock is the position to lock down the stick in this 4l60e your fluid is just that dirty there is NO way to check gear oil from the top at all once again that is your trans fluid yes it should be bright red but if it looks like gear oil you most likely have waited way too long to check it...
