If an automatic then there is a serious problem in the box / torque converter and will require the sump off for an investigation. If a manual then the box has to come out and the bearings inspected/replaced

SOURCE: Transmission Fluid. Pontiac G6. 2006

The trannsmission is a sealed unit and there is no dipstick. Check to see if you have a leak. More than likely it sounds like your low on fluid at least a 1/2 to a whole quart. Since these are sealed units it should be taken to the dealership to have looked at. If there is not any leaks then I would add 1/2 qt of tranny fluid and try driving so see if it helped. If it helped a little but the same problems are still there add another 1/2 qt. If it doesnt solve the problem then your tranny needs to be looked at.

Transmission problem, 1990 f150 5.0 automatic 4x4

Either the engine idle speed is too slow or the transmission fluid pump is not delivering adequate pressure to the valve body. There may be foreign material blocking one or more passages in the valve body - a flush and fill is supposed to take care of that, but it doesn't always get it if there is too much metal dust in there.

2000 Mercury grand marquis has frequent intermittent shuddering, especially going up hill, and stops when ever I let off the gas or give it more gas. Also now it's starting to have delayed downshifts...

These sound like two seperate problems. The first sounds like a clogged fuel filter or faulty fuel pump. The second problem could be a bad transmission filter.

1994 Ford Escort jerks into 2nd gear.

Make sure you're replacing your transmission oil about every 30,000 miles, or as directed in your owners manual service section.
If your gears are slipping, it could be as simple as low fluid or old fluid no longer providing the correct lubrication between your gears.
The issue could also be that your gears have worn down and the metal parts aren't fitting together correctly anymore. This will cause a jump in gear shifting and can only be remedied by rebuilding the shaved down gears in the transmission. Typically, this issue can be identified by pulling out your transmission dipstick and inspecting for evidence of small metal shavings in the fluid.

Good luck!

I have a 2004 chevrolet cavalier and when i shift from park it slams into gear and sometimes when i am driving i try to give it more gas and it will start dying down and the rpm meter will go back and...

Your car may need transmission fluid. Generally when there is a hard shift in gear, the transmission fluid is low. You may need to add a little transmission fluid.

The trani. slips if i start out in drive but if i manually shift it works. any ideas?

Sometimes changing the transmission filter and fluid helps to solve some tranny problems. check the fluid to see if it is dark and dirty. Check also for little pieces of metal or rubber when changing the filter. This will give you an idea if your tranny is about to give out. High volume of metal or rubber pieces means that the gears or rubber clutches are wearing out fast. Always refill with fresh fluid. I think that transmission fluid and transmission maintenance is one of the most ignored auto parts . Until it breaks down. The fluid at least should be checked every time the engine oil is changed.

Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm

If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive
