Then you likely have a blown head gasket. This is just a guess so have a shop diagnose it before you repair anthing.

BOTH CV AXLES & TORQUE AXLE REPLACED. UPON ACELL GET VIBRATION GOES AWAY AT ABOUT 25MPH. WHERE IS VIBRATION COMING FROM?


Check for a worn universal joint on the drive shaft going to the rear wheels.

Check your transmission fluid level. (Low level can cause vibration on acceleration.)

Check to see if your transmission filter needs changing.

Does it only vibrate under heavy acceleration?

1994 Camaro rough oepration and reduced power


I have a 94, and mine ran rough until I had a new computer control chip put in. The dealer doesnt sell then anymore, so you would need to get a reconditioned one (is that the right word?) from an auto parts store. I had to get this done twice because the first one was bad so they swapped it out. There was one more thing the former owner did to fix a rough run situation, I will post it when I find the receipt. Also, it smoothed out even more when I changed out the motor mounts. WAY less vibration. I love to drive this car now!

The automatic transmission is shifting oddly and speedometer jumps back and forth. The problem seems to occur when shifting into and out of 2nd gear. It seems like it has a hard time selecting the gear...


please this chart troubleshooting and fix it. God bless you

How to check automatic transmission fluid. An automatic transmission depends on the transmission fluid for transferring engine power to the wheels, shifting gears, lubricating moving parts and cooling down the transmission. Check the transmission fluid when your car is serviced and change it as recommended. Different cars have different ways of checking the transmission fluid level; some require the engine to be shut off (e.g. Honda), some cars don't have a transmission dipstick at all and the fluid can only be checked in a repair shop. Check your owner's manual for proper procedure. This is how the transmission fluid checked on most cars:
transmission-fluid1.jpg After the vehicle was driven for a while to let the transmission fluid warm up, place your vehicle on a level ground. Set the parking brake. Make sure the transmission is in "P" (Park) position. Leave the engine running. Find the automatic transmission dipstick (your owner's manual will tell you where it is located). Pull the dipstick out.
transmission-fluid2.jpg Wipe the dipstick off with a clean lint-free rag. Insert it back fully. Pull it out again and check the fluid level. A transmission fluid expands when warmed up, so if the car has been driven for a while (20-30 minutes), the transmission level should be between "HOT" marks. If the vehicle is cold, the level should be between "COOL" marks. Check the fluid condition: a very dirty fluid with strong burnt smell is a warning sign of transmission problems. Normally the automatic transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, as in these photos.
transmission-fluid3.jpg On most cars the new transmission fluid comes red (photo on the left). Over the time it becomes brownish, as in the photo below.
transmission-fluid5.jpg This is how the synthetic transmission fluid looks after two years of driving - it's still clean and transparent. If your fluid looks very dark or dirty, check your owner's manual, maybe it's time to change it. Some manufacturers require to change the transmission fluid at 30,000 or 50,000 miles others specify that you never have to change it - check what's your car owner's manual says.
transmission-fluid4.jpg If the transmission fluid level is low, you can top it up, but be careful not to overfill it. Overfilling the transmission can cause problems. It's very important to use only specified transmission fluid type - check your owners manual or simply visit your local dealer, they always have proper transmission fluid in stock. Incorrect fluid type can damage your transmission. How to top up the transmission fluid: Using a thin funnel, add a small amount of the fluid through the dipstick pipe. Wait for a few minutes - let the fluid drain down. Recheck the level again. Don't overfill

Transmission Fluid Change


No cause you only drain what was in the pan, the converter still had fluid in it, do not over fill

Transmission fluid levels & shifting Dodge Ram 1500 4.7


The transmission is slipping.

Sounds like it needs more than just adding fluid. I'd take it in for service before the transmission is further damaged.

1994 Caprice LT1 (Ohio Highway patrol vehicle in past). Vehicle vibrates when in 4th gear/lockup. Can play with accelerator and get vehicle vibration smothed out. Certain speeds worst than others 64MPH...


It sound like it's the Torque Converter clutch is worn and needs to be replaced, or your transmission fluid pressure is low. check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid, Make sure it's not burnt and has no bubbles in it. Take it to a transmission shop for a transmission oil and filter service and have them do a transmission fluid line test and have them scan the transmission with a tech 2 scanner. The Tech 2 scanner can reprogram the transmission for a higher line pressure and change the shift patterns if needed. An other thing too is to have the 4L60E transmission you have, get a servo swapped out with a corvette servo. The cost is $45.00 for the servos and takes about 30 min to do with out dropping the valve body. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad t help

Transmission shudder


I had a similar problem on my 93 Accord after I accidentally threw the car in reverse at 50 mph, obviously wrecking the transmission. When I got it rebuilt I was told the transmission pump was to blame (clogged with "shrapnel"). I, and your car manual, recommend taking the car in to get the tranny looked at. Especially considering you just had the fluid changed which is what would normally cause the problems you are describing.
