Nope that's it, so make sure you  remove the old O ring and replace it with the new one to ensure the transmission filter does not fall down in to the pan after you have done servicing the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps

How often do you recommend regular servicing of the transaxle on a 2000 Misubishi Eclipse GT? Is there a replaceable filter?

  • A complete flush should be performed every 50,000 miles. Sp3 fluid should be used or shuttering can be a result.
  • Yes there is a filter and gasket under the pan.

  • To change the pan gasket/filter
  1. Jack the car up a bit.
  2. Get a big drain pan.
  3. Remove the bolts to the transmission pan.
  4. Now you will see a little bracket holding the filter. Go ahead and remove the screws holding it in place.
  5. Now remove the bracket.
  6. Now pull the filter strait down. This will release a bit of fluid so be prepared for that.
  7. Now look to make sure the rubber gasket from where the filter was removed came out with the filter. Failure to check for this will result in the inability of the new filter to be installed. If you don't see it then look up in the hole and dig it out if you have to.
  8. Now make sure the gasket matches the layout of the pan. Gaskets and pans often come as a kit.
  9. Now install the new filter and bracket.
  10. Now clean off all the old gasket off the transmission and pan till all is metal. No gasket pieces should be left.
  11. Now lay the gasket on the pan and set it against the transmission and finger screw some of the bolts in. You don't need a fancy torque wrench. You just want to get the bolts snug. If the gasket comes pushing out the gasket is to tight.
  12. Tighten the bolts in a criss crossing fashion.
  13. Now add 2.5 qts of SP3 transmission fluid.
  14. This is just a start.
  15. Turn the engine over and look for leaks right away. If no leaks then get in the car, put your foot on the brake, and run through all the gears two times. All the way up and down. This fills all the pockets.
  16. Now put the e-brake on and check the level.
  17. Add a little if the dipstick shows the level a little low.
  18. Clean up and your done.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Transmission a mechanic said a hose rotted and the transmission died?? how can i fix it without replacing the tranny

Although this is may not work depending on transmission wear and tear, you will need to do this if you plan to replace transmission any way. Replace the damaged hose. Next I would get a transmission filter kit. This is a simple kit that is sold at part stores and includes filter and gasket. You will need to buy transmission fluid and a gasket sealant. Jack up the vehicle, drain the transmission fluid by loosening the transmission pan, if you need help finding this check the gasket shape you purchased. The pan will most likely be stuck a little from the previous gasket sealant. Carefully pry it apart with a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, transmission fluid will go when pan is dropped, so, be careful in placement of pan and how much you loosen all bolts. when pan is dropped check for metal shavings inside. If you have none things are looking good. Remove filter most oftenly attached with phillips head screws. Check this filter for debris and metal. If you do not spot anything serious by now, replace using new filter. Ensure you have a clean surface for the new gasket after removal of old gasket. Once you have this done, add a thin layer of sealant to pan and place gasket on top of it. Apply another thin layer of sealant to the other side of gasket and reinstall to transmission using correct tightening sequence and torque. These bolts do not need to be overly tight. Most leaks happen from overtightening bolts to pan. Usually a lil over hand tight is fine, but, check with you parts store. Add fluids to proper level and then you will be able to test the transmission out. I know it sounds like alot, but, it cheaper than buying a new transmission if you don't have to.

Transmission line...need to find out about the clips that hold the transmission line, how to reattach the clips

these are commonly called "quick release fittings". pull back the retainer,insert the end of the line into the fitting,and push the retainer back into place.
The little clip that comes with it,can be installed into the retaining slot with a pair of snap ring pliers,or like i do,place one end in the slot,and push the other end with a screwdriver till it snaps into place.

The strange thing iI found with these things is that they seem loose,until you start your truck,and the pressure build up. After that they stay super tight.

How to change a transmission filter on 2002 gt grand am

The transmission filter is in the transmission so your going to have to drop the transmission pan. The best thing your going to have to do is to bring it to a transmission shop or any GM dealer and have them service the transmission.
There is no dipstick on a 2002 Grand Am. You'll need to find a small plug on the passenger side of the transmission - look slightly behind the oil pan. Should need 11mm socket to take it out (it's obviously a plug - it doesn't look like it's holding anything together) If no fluid comes out, it's low. To add, you'll need to take off the airbox and find the red cap that either says 'trans fluid' or just has a picture of a gear.
What ever you do, do not do a transmission flush. It common for the transmission to fail shortly after the transmission flush has been performed.
If your going to attempt to service your transmission, you need to drop the transmission oil pan to remove and replace the transmission oil filter. Spray down the valve body with brake parts cleaner and then replace the oil filter that just slides back in place, make sure you remove the old O ring that holds the oil filter in place. Using the old O ring may result in the oil filter dropping from the valve body.
Once you have reinstalled everything, you can refill the transmission through the tube mentioned under the air box.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Transmission fluid leak

Most likely point of leakage is where dipstick tube is inserted into trans. there is an "O" ring that can be replaced. If that is the source of leakage, remove tube and replace "O" ring. Dpistick tube must be secured so it doesn't move around once installed. This does sound like a warrantee issue and would take installer very little time to correct. Good Luck

My mitsubishi 3000gt will not go into overdrive and when i push the overdrive selector switch the transmission goes into neutral

Ok its an easy not pull the trans!!!

#1 Jack up your passenger the rear
#2 Pull wheel off
#3 you will see a cover approx 5 to 6 inches with a half a dozen bolts.
#4 Take that cover off...small pan under to catch a very little trans fld.
#5 Pull off the OD clutch assy. package
#6 Use a very small pic/ flat screw driver to to remove a 5 inch retaining ring.
#7 You will see a little larger that a 1 inch c type clip...wear glasses.
#8 Remove the pancake type piston and look at the O-ring it will be split/cracked/torn or nicked. When this happens your car will run fine in 3rd gear, but will act as if it came out of gear.
#9 You will need to get a seal kit to replace it.... $15-20 approx 45-60 minutes for the progect.
#10 be very careful when you re-insert the pancake into the clutch housing. will nick it !!! come in square.!!! Do not force!!.
#11 This next step was the hard part for me ...putting the c clip back on while keeping pressure on the pressure plate. Don't bend the clip and wear glasses.
#12 Place the od clutch package back on the transmission and replace cover.
Hope this helps...I've done 6 now..all doing great..going on 3 years.

#10 when you

How do I replace headlight on 2006 subaru tribeca

To remove light bulb from Tribeca B9 low beam simply 1) remove outer cap, 2) reach into round cavity holding bulb and disconnect two leads, 3) then press on one end of wire clip--the one with the larger bracket (use mirror to view then go by feel) and while pressing on wire move outward away from bracket and clip will swing up and out of the way while being held from falling away by screw on other side of bulb socket. 4) pull bulb out noting that there is a tang which goes back in the same location. Driver side is easier if you remove battery. Other side only requires you remove air intake vent to air box ----- two pop-outs hold it in. Do not take the front end of the car off or light unit out as suggested above.

Transmission filter install 1998 chevy s10

No there is no clip there is a seal in the hole were the tube goes sometimes it comes out somtimes it does not. There should be a new one in the filter kit. You do not have to replace it if it does not come out. But back to your question, the filter just pulls out and the new one just pushes in. It can not fall out because the pan holds it in.
