How do i change the reverse band in my 2001 dodge 2500 diesel


Not being a big auto mechanic as not many autos here in europe but i would think you need to remove the gearbox ,but before you do anything try this --- start engine jam handbrake on with a chock behind a drive wheel then drop into reverse and check oil level as from limited experiance on some cars ,if the oil level is low then reverse is the first gear you lose

I have a bmw 330d e46 auto (2003) (53 plate) and a red light has come which looks like a cog with a caution sign inside the cog.anyone have any idea what this could mean


hi this could mean that the transmition ( automatic gearbox is low on oil ) there should be a dipstick under the bonnet towards the gearbox where you pull it out to see the oil level.
to get the true reading you dip for oil level when engine is worm
and ticking over .

2010 Peugeot 207 gearbox drain/filler/level bungs


The drain plug is situated on the final drive casing at the rear of the transmission (plug may need a square or hex drive wrench).

There is no level plug - the correct qty of oil must be measured and then poured in.
If Petrol 1.9 ltrs, diesel 2.0.

The oil is 75/80w.

Hard to change gears in my v6 hyundia


First thing to check is oil-level in the gearbox. If far below the filler hole - refill and look for oil leaks around seals and in clutch housing.

If oil level is ok - it might need changing or when serviced recently, it might have been filled with the wrong oil.

Somewhere on the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with a seal ring. Usually this is the filler hole. Oil level check is simple, stick a finger in downwards. Should feel the oil level.

Gear boxes need the right oil viscosity and are quite sensitive - meaning changing gears gets difficult specially when cold.

I have a 95 jeep cherokee sport, 4.0 auto. And my car is stuck in forth gear and will not down shift, I have to do it manually through 1-4 gear. How do you fix this?


First check the oil level in your gearbox.
Refresh the oil if it's not clear and red tinted.

Give it a try. If it isn't fixed, you'll have to send the gearbox to a specialised revision company. You'll have an problem in the hydraulic valves of the gearbox, unsolvable if you haven't the right tools and testbench...

Where is the transmission fill on the manual transmission of a 1994 Toyota Tercel 4wd station wagon?


Check both sides of the gearbox for a plug (screw) simular to the drain plug on the bottom. This is a level screw remove it then on the bottle of trans. oil their should be a lid with a pipe on it put the pipe in the hole and squeze the bottle until the oil comes out of the hole in the gearbox.
