My advice is to type out what your issue is - this is not a texting app and we need to understand the details of your issue. As best I can figure out, you are having problems with your transmission, took it to have the fluid changed, and someone (mechanic?) told you that because of the metal shavings in the old fluid (plus the warning light flashing) they recommended transmission rebuild/replacement. That's good advice. Your transmission may be rebuildable now, and may only require a few parts. Keep driving it until it quits altogether and it's going to cost a lot more.

SOURCE: my 2001 ford galaxy automatic

what i would try first is a transmission flush. not just a transmission service where 3-4 quarts of fluid is replaced but all of the fluid. you could do this yourself and at the same time replace the filter. drop the pan and change the filter, then remove the bell housing plate and locate the drain plug on the torque converter. allow all fluid to drain. reinstall drain plug and pan, and fill with fluid. there are also some after market transmission additives that can restore some of the original ooomphh. good luck

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: think I need oil pan gasket

It's probably the front crank seal or the cam seal. Kinda big job for a novice. The car only has one oil pan. The back one she refered to is for the transmission,if it's automatic. Never saw a oil pan gasket leak on a nissan '96 & up.

SOURCE: Trany stuck in 2nd gear on my 2000 chrysler 300m

the chrysler transmissions go into a default setting and stay in second gear when there is a governor or governor pressure sensor problem,if you keep driving it that way..u might need a trans,u should have it scanned for trans codes and see what you come up with,the rams were the biggest offenders when it came to this problem,either a turbine sensor code or a govenor solenoid or pressure sensor problem,hope this helps

How much tranmission fluid does it take to change on a 1969 Chevy ck 1500


Around 4 to 5 quarts. BUT, I wouldn't recommend you changing the fluid. Drop the pan and catch the fluid. Inspect the pan. if there isn't chunks of metal in it, I would only replace the filter and put the old fluid back in. Transmissions that haven't been taken care of have a real nasty habit of dieing when the new fluid is put in. Be prepared for a transmission rebuild or replacement.

Did you check the fluid level? If you just did the pan it should have taken 6 quarts. That only did less then half the fluid though. You should have a drainplug in the torque converter. The problem with deals like this is by the time your having problems like sliping its usually to late. The new fluid may even have broken some crap loose..

Need to fix the slipping on an automatic transmission


change the trany fluid and filter. get some lucas transmission treatment and put it in before you put your trany fluid in. after all fluids are in and everything is together start the vehicle and hold foot on brake and go through the gears it might slip a lil the first 5 min of driving or until fluid works through trany.

Change the transmission fluid in a 2000 ford windstar van


The transmission service is performed by lifting the vehicle in order to get access to the transmission pan. Remove all the bolts that hold the pan in place and the fluid will come out when the pan is being lowerd. From there the filter is accesible and should be changed by simply pulling it downward. The new one is installed by pushing it firmly in place where the old one once was. Clean the pan of the transmission completely including the magnet. place new gasket around the pan and reinstall all the pan bolts. be carefull not to over tighten the pan bolts as it can damage the new gasket the you have put on. next, lower the vehicle and add fluid through the dipstick tube located in the engine compartment. It's best to add 4 quarts then start the vehicle and check the level. If more is needed, add accordingly.

There is none. To change the fluid you need to remove the cover - undo one end first to limit the mess - but yes, it's messy. AnswerBest To Have A Good Transmission Shop Do This. Sometimes You Can Miss Alighn The Filter On Some Tranmissions And They Will Go Out. About Changing The Fluid, Even If You Could It Wouldn`t Do The Job Without a New Filter. Good Luck AnswerThere is an excellent write-up on this procedure relating to a Taurus - the steps are the same.
See "Related Questions" below for more

NOTE: dropping the pan alone will NOT change ALL the fluids - specifically the fluid that is in the torque converter. That would require a shop to perform a full fluid change with their specialized equipment. Answerdrop the pan, replace filter, clean pan replace gasket torq bolts to spec. refill to warm line on stick
Rick
ASE L-1 Master TransMichigan.com AnswerRemove the pan and then remove the filter on the valve body. Clean the pan and gasket surfaces on pan & trany. Install new filter and pan gasket and gently tighten bolts. Caution, if overtightened it will leak!!! Remember how tight they were when you removed them or get a spec & torque them. Refill the trany through the filler tube, DON'T overfill it or it may not shift properly. To check the fluid level the vehicle needs to be running in park and on a level surface. If you do the above you will only change aprox 40% of the fluid. The torque converter, cooler & lines hold the rest and the fluid won't drain out of them.
I suggest you take it to a shop that has a trany FLUSHING machine and will exchange 100% of the fluid and do the filter & gasket at the same time. Add a bottle of seal conditioner when done. With the price of a new trany this should be done every 80,000 kilometers (50-60,000 miles) or check your owners manual for service intervals. Not a lot of shops have this machine so be selective. Might cost up to $200-250.00 for this service to get it done properly but a proper trany rebuild can be $1500-3000.00 or more in some cases on some vehicles.
Flushing the fluid?

But the system should be flushed. Just dropping the pan and draining the oil and changing the filter on your transmission leaves all the used fluid still in torque converter. Have the system evacuated and totally replacing ALL the fluid is a much better approach. It will cost you more but if you plan on keeping the Ford, it's a worthwhile investment.
