No if all you did was take a bolt out of the trans then keep trying to thread it in. It'll go,the trans/engine never seperated so it's probably a bracket for the trans dipstick or the wiring harness tie down in the way.

My Lincoln ls shifts very hard from 2nd gear to 3rd gear . what is the problem?


Hi David. I am a big fan of starting with the cheap and simple fixes first. Some people find that a low transmission fluid level caused the problem you described and when they simply added a little transmission fluid, they solved the problem. Like your car oil, transmission oil can get dirty, only with transmission fluid, dirt can clog the filter and the control body of the tranny system. About 70 % of all the auto tranny problems are solved by changing the transmission fluid.

However, on a Lincoln site, one person stated:
"I had my tranny fluid changed which made it shift even harder. the mechanic told me to take it to Ford and have them reset the computer. So I pulled the battery cable off for a minute and put it back on to reset the computer. Now the car shifts like it should... Try this first, its free".

On the Lincoln forum, Tom stated, " the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Pack needs to be replaced. This seems to be a common issue on the transmission you have. There are 3 pressure control solenoids & 4 shift solenoids in one plastic part ,made by Bosch. You remove the trans pan,the gasket is reuseable silicone You remove the filter, You remove approx 7 -- T30 bolts, holding the solenoid pack & one 10mm electrical connector bolt. HPN-9L2Z7G391A about $400 for the part and add on labor. Add in some new Mercon V and filter kit and your good to go. "
Good luck.

Good

Try adjusting the transmission cable that comes from the throttle body. That is where the transmission gets it's input for how much throttle is being requested. If it's misadjusted and thinks you're requesting too little throttle, it may try to downshift more than normal. It's been a while since I've done this on mine so I don't remember if this is the exact procedure or if there are additional steps, but you have to pop the clip for the throttle to transmission cable and slide the cable as far in as possible then put the clip back. Next you'll want to press the gas pedal all the way down (may have to use extra force). You'll hear a pop and you're done. If you mark beforehand, you can see if adjusting did anything.

I changed my oil last night with my boy friend who does frequent oil changes. Afterwords, my transmission started shifting extremely hard and late. Please help. I do not believe he drained the tranny...


e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

Your truck does not have a c3 transmission in it. That is an old Ford transmission. Yours should have a 4L60 transmission in it. I would say that your tranny is toast. You could pull the pan off and you will probably find parts and pieces.

I pulled all the bellhousing bolts..motor mount bolts...and can't seperate the 4 speed granny transmission from the engine block...what's the problem..everything is lose but won't seperate..


The input shaft (on the front of the trans) is inserted into the clutch plate, so the trans has to move straight backward (or the engine has to move straight forward) about two or three inches to separate the two, before either one can move up or down.

Make sure that you can get them to rotate slightly with respect to each other, to make sure that there is not one more bolt somewhere that is still holding them together.

If you are pulling the engine, make sure that you have already removed the radiator, otherwise when you pull the engine forward, it could go too far and smash the radiator.

99 dodge ram 4x4 w 360 engine trans has only 1st gear and reverse


Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that

Where is the transmission dip stick for 2002 alero


As was mentioned, there isn't one. There is a small bolt on the side of the transmission pan (facing the front of the car) that is pulled and checked by the service mechanic. If a few drops of tranny fluid are released when the bolt is pulled, there is adequate fluid in the transmission.

1992 Dodge Stealth Auto Trans. Won't go into overdrive?


I had the same problem. The seal in the tranny that applies pressure to the overdrive clutches had blown out because the clutches had too much wear and the piston with the seal on it was coming out of it's bore causing the seal to rupture. Sounds complicated but there's a somewhat easy fix. The assembly on the passengers side of the tranny (jack up the car and remove the wheel) with about five bolts holding it on, is the complete OD clutch and piston assy. You can remove the bolts and remove the assembly, then inspect the clutches and the piston seal without removing the tranny. I pulled the parts from another tranny I had, but any transmission shop should be able to get them for you. Good luck.
