My transmission fluid in my 06 Grand Prix gxp got to 220 is that bad


That's high, but not terribly so. Transmissions typically run about 180, but on my Silverado the trans temp gauge doesn't show red until 250. Smell the trans fluid, if it doesn't smell burned, it should be ok. If unsure, change the fluid. I don't recommend a power flush, just drain the pan, change filter, measure what was in the pan, add that amount of new fluid and of course, correct why it got that hot in the first place.

How do u add transmission fluid to a 2006 chevy optra


For auto transmissions with NO dip stick and filler tube in the engine bay, the fluid has to be pumped in by removing a filler plug on the side of the transmission. You must use the correct procedure for this so the transmission is not under or over filled and the vehicle needs to be perfectly level when doing this. It is best left to a professional. Take the car to a Chev dealer to have it done and get them to drain the old fluid from the transmission and refill.

I have an 85 Ford tempo automatic transmission will not shift into higher gears until car is fully warmed up it tries to shift but keeps going back into first.


Dirty/Worn out tranny fluid, and filter...try adding a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission fluid, about $11. at Walmart...works wonders, and you do not need to drain anything...be sure to read the instructions and add only after a good warm up...Hope this helps.

2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA automatic gasoline engine. shifts hard sometimes.


YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.

Where is transmission level stick for 99 chev. malibu ?


theres not one1 the only time you check it is if it has a transmission leak or you change the fluid. to do this you have to take ****** pan off to let fluid out. on top of transmission is where to add fluid. the only way to check is to get car up in air, start car get underneath and take out plug in back of pan and if it just drips out, it is ok. if not, add to fluid on red cap on top of transmission. make sure car is up in air and level and the engine is warm. good-day and may god bless!

Transmission jerks on 1985 Crown Vic when cold. Doesn't want to shift, and transmission jerks violently when cold. Also, automatic transmission doesn't like to shift into 3rd gear, unless you exceed 45...


Unless you are low on fluid, I suspect you are in need of a rebuild. I have had similar problems before. Any shop will tell you to try a fluid and filter change. It has never brought one of mine back. I would suggest adding fluid to the top of the 'add fluid' area of the dipstick and no more. It can foam if it is to full, causing similar problems as being to low. I would add that if you have to replace the transmission - you need to consider that the car may not be worth the cost.
Good Luck.
