    johnny rebel, thank you for your initial input REBUILD.. the truck had been started.. ran for seconds each time started, about 8 times never on the road.no doubt the contaminates are through-out the trans. and a rebuild would be the very best,.. But could'nt I expect or find it to operate if I had it towed to a flush facility,.. flush it! and schedule periodic fluid and filter changes thereafter, is it not possible the truck could run for a period of time, say possibly a few years let me know what'cha think and again thank you reb

How did that stuff get in it any way? Clutches in transmission do not like water. None. And valve bodies do not like grit/metal/sand. Yes it is a rebuild. Year make and model really helps.

How do I get transmission fluid out of my transmission


best take it to an auto transmission specialist shop
the pan has to come off and the system refilled , run the a repeat of the process to get the contaminated oil out of the torque converter
or
at a specialist shop they can flush out the system with the engine running as that flushes the transmission and the torque converter and all the valve bodies and servos at the same time
A bit more expensive but more efficient

Bad transmission seal on a 2002 ford explorer


Drain the Transmission Fluid and Replace the Filter
Raise the car with ramps or a floor jack and support it with jack stands. Find the lower cover of the torque converter housing. Turn the torque converter until you find the drain plug. Place a drain pan beneath the drain hole, remove the plug and drain the fluid.
Remove the cooler lines at the transmission and flush them with compressed, low pressure air. Be careful during this step; fluid may shoot from the other cooler line.
Place a large drain pan beneath the transmission. Loosen the retaining bolts on the oil pan with a socket wrench until they are within a few turns of removal. If the seal doesn't break on its own, gently tap it with a rubber hammer. Fluid will drain from the edges of the pan.
Remove the pan retaining bolts when the fluid stops draining. There is still transmission fluid in the pan. Hold the pan carefully and drain as much as you can into the drain pan.
Scape the old gasket material from the mating surfaces on the oil pan and the transmission. Discard the old gasket. Clean the magnet in the pan. Clean the pan and the mating surfaces with a solvent and a clean, lint-free cloth. Replace the magnet and allow the pan to air dry.
Employ a socket wrench to remove the bolt that holds the filter onto the transmission. Some models may have two bolts. Pull the filter and any old seals or gaskets from the transmission. Install a new filter assembly, including any required seals or gaskets.
Put a new gasket on the oil pan and reinstall it on the transmission. Tighten the retaining bolts to 79- to 119-inch pounds with a torque wrench. Replace the cooler lines on the transmission and the drain plug on the torque converter.

Mazda 1999 B3000 what specifically needs to be replaced when transmission fluid get into the radiator?


The radiator must have an internal leak between the coolant and the reservoir for cooling the transmission fluid. Replace the radiator, drain and flush the engine and heater core, and drain and replace the transmission filter. You will need to remove the lower transmission pan, let it drain out (about 6 quarts), then replace the filter that is there, just underneath the pan. If you see any evidence of coolant in the transmission fluid, put it back together, run the vehicle for a bit-till the engine has warmed up, a short drive should do-then shut it off and drain the transmission fluid again.

When the transmission is drained this way, not all the transmission fluid will be drained-about half will still be in there, mostly in the torque converter. So if the fluid is contaminated, you need to drain and refill at least twice.

How to drain oil fron tranmission and tork converter


To drain the Transmission Fluid from your Transaxle, you need to loosen the bolts around the Pan. As for taking the fluid out of the Torque Converter, you can not unless you completely remove the Transaxle from the Car along with the Torque Converter. So every time you service the Transmission, you are NOT getting 100% of the fluid. You can do a REVERSE FLUSH on your Transmission at many shops but I do not recommend this. I have had to rebuild many transmissions within 500 miles of the service (many less than 100 miles).

Trans goes into neutral


all you can do @ this time is to drop the pan, drain the fluid, clean the pan, magnet, etc., install new gasket & filter, refill w/ the correct trans fluid, donot overfill !!!!!!!!!!!!! check for loose shift rods, adjust as required, check the lines for leaks, maybe replace neutral safety switch, see if it improved or fixed your issue ! other than that, you may need a rebuild ?????? torque converter & or pump could be ready to go ???? inside trans . have a trans shop check it out, at least thats free !good luck

First of all that metal sand is not a good thing. Something has definitely gone wrong. If your just looking to get the last few miles out of the truck and not spend any money on the tranny I would do exactly what your planning. Change with fluid, replace the filter and may go to checkers or whatever to see what they have as far as anti tranny slip stuff. But I'm afraid the problem is only going to get worse with time since you have metal shaving down in there.

How do you change the transmission fluid in a 2006 Hyundai Elantra? What kind of transmission fluid and how many quarts?


A Service Department as a Hyundai Service Department typically uses a "Fluid Exchange" machine (approx. 7 quarts of Hyundai SPIII fluid) to do a flush. There is a drain plug at the bottom of the transmission (24 mm bolt) to drain it. However, this method is not entirely/completely effective. This drain plug only empties the pan, not the torque converter -- so you're only replacing about 3 to 4 quarts with this method (torque converter does not drain). So, once you've replaced the 3 to 4 quarts this way, there's still contaminated fluid in the torque converter which will circulate back into the rest of the transmission. RECOMMENDATION: Have a certified technician do a flush (fluid exchange).

Is the Transmission sealed, can not change the filter and fluid? Where is the radiator, is it also sealed, can water only be put in the overflow?


The transmission is not sealed in the v8 I looked up. It's bolted together. prev.gif next.gif Fluid Pan Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section
  2. Raise and support the vehicle
  3. Place a drain pan under the transmission fluid pan
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Drain plug and drain the fluid
    • Shifter cable bracket NOTE: The transmission fluid pan gasket is reusable, clean and inspect for damage; if not damaged, the gasket should be reused.
    • Fluid pan and gasket
    • Transmission fluid filter
    • Clean and inspect the transmission fluid pan and magnet
    • Converter housing access plug
    • Converter drain plug
To Install:
NOTE: A new converter drain plug must be used to prevent leakage.
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Install the converter drain plug. Torque to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
    • Install the converter housing access plug
  2. Lubricate the seals and install the transmission fluid filter. Torque the bolts to 89 in-lbs (10 Nm)
  3. Install the oil pan magnet in the transmission fluid pan NOTE: The transmission fluid pan gasket is reusable, clean and inspect for damage; if not damaged, the gasket should be reused.
  4. Install the transmission fluid pan and gasket and loosely install the screws.
  5. Using a crisscross sequence, torque the screws to 8 ft-lbs (11 Nm)
  6. Install the shifter cable bracket. Torque bolts to 18 ft-lbs (25 Nm)
  7. Install the drain plug. Torque to 19 ft-lbs (26 Nm) NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    NOTE: Use 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug. Remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  8. Verify the transmission fluid level

The only way that tranny fluid could get into the radiator is through the transmission cooler, which is inside the radiator. Maybe the replacement rad is NFG. In any case, the torque converter holds a lot of fluid, so just draining the tranny oil pan isn't enough. The torque converter needs draining as well to get all the bad stuff out. You probably just didn't get all of the old fluid out of it. Good luck with that.
