Using lucas junk in a newer car with low miles was really bad act.
it can melt the seals. never ever put in additives in to any a/t box.
you will be sorry, later or now.
that Lucas junk is for end of life box, super high mileage
and just need it to work for say a week , until next week it hits the tranny shop.
that is why the warranty is rejection when you do that.
and why they took the dip stick off most newer cars, to keep that junk out of the trans....

whining is a bad sign, get it devices now by transmission shop.
tell them about the lucus junk first. (they will flush it out)

Transmission whine when cold is not abnormal. Cold fluid does not flow as well as warm fluid, which could cause some whine.

Suzuki reccomend to change gear box oil every 94000 miles dextron 3 is what should be in it i have also put in lucas transmisson fix in it but it still whines

box, the Automatic transmission. 3speed or 4speed or?

no car stated, just suzuki. no year stated.? so.... i guess that....

50k is better service. (if done right)

whines is death rattle. (doom/ the end play)

unless overfilled, or under filled, and its aerating the AFT and starving bearings. and whines. causing soon ,the death rattle.

did you follow the correct steps to fill it? running hot.?????

dexron max use the largest number on the shelf III is not made, nor ever necessary, DEX VI is on the shelf now.

Dexron is downward compatible to mark II. (read their pages)

50k is best or 40k better (by lab tests!)

many car manuals leave out the service, do to DIY doing it wrong

and wrecking a good transmission. in fac,t they took off the dip stick for that reason, later years.

level checks on ONE Suzuki, (guessing yours I am)

do not over full it.

what suzuki?

Auto trans wont change gears speedometer jumps up and down

Have you checked the fluid level? if not do so with engine running in park and e brake pulled Also look at the fluid is it brown in color and smell sort of like onions? if it does it needs a filter and oil change. most cars require the filter and oil to be changed every 30,000 miles. Also add Lucas transmission additive so that it will soften the seals and clutches. If you want to do this yourself let me know and I can give you instructions, however it can be messy. the transmission will take 12 quarts of fluid dexron III and the lucas oil conditioner. Write back if you need more help and thanks for using fix ya.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 auto. At start up the trans pump sounds like lack of fluid whine. Put into gear & it drives for few minutes then slips to the point of stopping, if left idling it...

Likely it's better to leave the bands alone. The servos have plenty of travel and unless it was "hammering" into gear (from excessive clearance there) likely adjusting them won't do much. Pan rail is stamped pretty deep...carb cleaner wont clean it up enough to read?
Replacing the filter may help if it's plugged up. If not, don't bother replacing it...problem is internal and filter won't change much of anything.
You can only partially replace the fluid because the converter has no drain. Therefore, use cheap oil and a container of lucas conditioner. If it helps, do the change again at 3,000 miles and use a higher quality fluid along with another lucas.
If you can't get the unit #, buy both filter kits and make note of which is for what transmission. Return the unused one.

Looking into buying a used 2003 honda odyssey with just over 100,000 miles. what maintence is required? i heard timing belt should be replaced. is this true and how much am i looking at?

For a 2003 used Honda odyssey, the following should be required:-

1. Replace the timing belt. (repair estimates at
2. Drain the whole oil out of the engine and transmission
3. Replace the brake pads
4. Most of all run a diagnosis scan on the vehicle to detect any other possible maintenance that will be required.

Good luck and a good buy.

Take care.

1994 jeep yj automatic wont shift into 3rd gear

Hey bro, pumps might be gummed up. Easiest thing I can suggest is go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps in the auto transmission. Then try it again. If no joy, then I'd change the transmission fluid and toss in some lucas oil transmission fix. Probably run you 40$ for the oil and lucas and take 30 min. It has saved my **** a few times and might just work. If it doesn't then you probably will need a new transmission, it is cheaper to replace it than to repair it in most cercumstances. Try the oil first, it's cheap and quick. Don't forget the lucas. And make sure to go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps. Cheers bro.

i would start with an oil change for the transmission this should help, the oil should be changed about every 30,000 miles, if that doesnt help try some trans x, it helps automatic transmissions shift better

1990 Nissan sentra automatic transmission hesitates between gears

You are right. The transmission filter should be changed every 60,000 miles. While the pan is off for filter change, add one bottle of Lucas Transmission conditioner into the pan. Reinstall pan and refill with Dextron II fluid. Torque converter is OK.
