Is there an easy way to completely flush the tranny on a 2009 Dodge Avenger 4 cylinder auto??


A quick lube place unhooks the lines to the tranny and runs a vacuum pump to draw out the old fluid, then the new fluid is but in and the fittings put back. If there is no drain plug then you have to drop the pan.

How do you put brake fluid into a 2001 ford windstar?


I know it wasn't a very good engineering design, but the brake reservoir is up underneath the cowling for the windshield wipers on the drivers side. The fill cap is on top, and not easy to access. You will need a very flexible funnel (like a tranny funnel) or a small funnel you can add a piece of flexible hose to to reach the fill cap. You should never need to add brake fluid unless you have just replaced some brake pads or shoes. If the reservoir is low it would indicate your brakes are worn and need replacing soon, or there is a fluid leak in the system.

Hi can any tell me how to drain transmission oil on a pontiac grand-am 1996


With no dipstick, you should find a plug,( 7/16",under vehicle to see it) on the backside of casing near right axle, for checking/filling fluid, but other than that, remove the pan. Might want to do filter as well, when pan is off, if it hasn't been done in a while.

Hey guys: My 91 MPV sat for 6 weeks recently...Before I parked it, it was running fine...Yesterday when I put it back on the road the tranny was making a whirring sound but was working fine....I drove for...


Hello. Sorry to hear you are having this trouble. From what I hear it sounds like your automatic transaxle may be low on fluid, or the fluid has been getting too old and overheated (as any will over time). Please look for signs of any tranny fluid leaks on the ground and under the van. If it does you will need to fix the leak, and/or keep up with fluid loss all the time until you do.

Please check your automatic transaxle (tranny) fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. See if the fluid looks pink and clean. If the fluid or dipstick is dark or brown looking at all, it needs replaced. Get the fluid professionally flushed and changed. This step alone may fix your van as long as the fluid is not leaking, and too much old fluid use (hopefully) has not already damaged the tranny.

Where to check transmission fluid on a 2001 jaguar xjr


If there is a red dipstick, check it from here.
If no dipstick, then you will have to go from underneath and look at tranny. There will be two plugs on tranny. A lower drain plug and upper fill plug. You can remove the upper fill plug, put finger in the whole and you should be able to feel the fluid. If not, add some, You can use a rubber hose and funnel or top with hose on bottle to help fill it up

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

How do u fill the tranny differential on a 1996 toyota corolla?


It depends on if have you have a 3 speed automatic, 4 speed automatic, or a manual transmission.

The 4 speed and manual tranny share their fluid with the differential so if you fill the tranny you fill the differential at the same time.

The 3 speed differential does not share its fluid with the tranny. To fill or check the fluid on the 3 speed automatic you will need to get underneath the car. The fill bolt faces the firewall side of the transmission. It is about 4 inches above the differential drain plug. You will need a fluid pump and hose to get the fluid into the fill hole. The fluid you will need is Dexron tranny fluid.

Unhook the battery for about ten minutes ... that should reset the light... if it comes back on have the codes scanned (autozone is free).
