SOURCE: How often to change tranny fluid?

The Lexus Severe Maintenance Schedule is every 60,000 miles which should be in your owners manual, dealers sometimes make up their own.

SOURCE: change tranny oil and what kind?

Some trans shops will tell you after 100k that you should not change fluid. I see some valid points in this in that if unit has a large amount of varnish and debris, it could loosen up and migrate to important components. However, I don't entirely "buy into" this simply because in not changing it you absolutely ensure that the unit will fail soon.(the oil itself looses it's ability to do its job, both from a chemical and physical aspect.)
If oil you remove looks burned or is heavily contaminated, change it (with filter) then in about 2000miles, change it again. (when you drop the pan you are only changing half the old fluid, the remainder stays inside the converter) If old fluid is "normal...used" change it once, then again next year (regardless of miles driven).
You can check for exact fluid type by asking at any good trans shop or at a local dealer...its likely dextron 3 but they keep changing requirements. If doing a "short" change use something like the wallmart brand (actually quaker state in a different container) then on second change get and use either the same or better (like a synthetic), adding a good mild additive like the sealer & conditioner made by Lucas. Doing this will not guarantee you will not have a failure but gives you the best protection possible against it.
good luck!

SOURCE: transmission for 2001 daewoo lanos

since it does not have the dip stick, there is a plug on the side of the transmission. Take out the plug and fill it until fluid starts running out, then it is full and insert the plug.

It wont down shift


Whens the last time you changed tranny filter and fluid. it may be the vacuum modulator or your bands inside the tranny. Pull out your tranny dipstick when running and check level of tranny fluid. Add dextron II of needed. Smell the tranny fluid on dipstick to see if tranny fluid is burndt. if you change filter and fluid, add a can of trans-x to the fluid. Will help seals in tranny.

My transmission fluid turned brown. I beleive from getting hot.The bad radiator I think caused this. Should I change the fluid or leave it alone?


You are right to look at the tranny fluid as worn...as it has turned brown. This happens naturally over time and mileage. Depending on the mileage, sometimes it is not recommended to open the transmission pan to change fluid and filter. If over 100,000 miles, check with your local shop for tranny flush or fluid filter change per warranty consideration. You can add a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer to your tranny without having to drain any fluids. I have used this often on higher mileage cars with great success. The bottle costs about $11. even at your local Walmart:) Read the instructions carefully as the full bottle contents need to be added with engine running and tranny warm. Hope this helps.

Got a 'recommended' tranny fluid exchange at 126K miles...not 'service engine light" on with codes, tranny sticking in drive less than 1500 miles later. planning to go back to the dealership to find out...


No...I recommend complete transmission fluid exchange every 50 to 75K miles. When I say "complete" that includes torque converter and radiator cooler.
Transmission oil never wears out but the detergents and conditioners in the oil do and filters get plugged with normal wear and tear debris.
Performing the complete exchange will help prolong the transmissions life and keep it preforming properly.
I would guess there is another problem causing your issue or the dealer may have left something loose during the service.
I would return to the dealer and explain your problem and see what they do recommend and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes as there may be a "B" code that would not turn the service engine light on.
Good luck,
Regards,

Transmission fluid flushing


In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.
