Did you take the level with transmission warm? suspect are still overfilled, as torque converter generally retains fluid.

I suggest this is the Vechicle Revolution Sensor is causing the problem.

Run Diagnostic on the Transmission and review error codes.

An error (1) Code would confirm this.

If no error code exists then the problem is the band needs tightening. The gear to slip is always 2nd gear in this vechicle first then other latter as the problem becomes worse. There is only one band in the transmission and it is fairly simply procedure to complete but you need 1-10nm Torque wrench and to remove the valve body to get access. Don't attempt if you don't have good mechanical skill or have exp. on motorbike or other auto transmissions.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission fluid drain plug for a 2000 Cougar

Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluid siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.

SOURCE: tranny pops into neutral if i push on gas pedal hard

Thats what I thought. Locate your shift cables on drivers side where they attach to transmission on top. The linkages they are attached to are very prone to seizing up because of the location of them. Your throttle valve cable is there to on the very top of that linkage. You need to get lots of penetrating spray (like WD-40) on there and keep working them until they move freely. Eventually you'll be able to move that top part by hand easily, turn it back & forth until it loosens up real good. Once you get them moving freely, give them a good coat of spray grease like with lithium grease. that should last quite a while. You may be able to get at it better by removing battery & tray if it's on that side still & in the way of getting to it. Have you had any hard downshifting or hanging up & revving high before it goes in to next gear when driving?

New fluid in trans.slips before first gear

run hot for 10 minutes then recheck fluid level with engine running
and use owners manual or on dipstick to find out if it needs to be in gear. sometimes the torq converter drains and you need more oil to refill.

How to Change transmission fluid on 2001 celica

Hi there, hope these few steps help:
  • Raise the car with a jack and support the vehicle with jack stands sufficiently rated to safely support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Place a large drip pan under the transmission.
  • Remove the transmission fluid drain bolt with a wrench. The drain bolt is located at the bottom of the transmission facing the pan. The pan is the large flat plate that covers the very bottom of the transmission.
  • Drain the transmission fluid into the drip pan.
  • Reinstall the transmission fluid drain bolt with the same wrench used to remove the bolt.
  • Lower the vehicle to the ground after removing the jack stands.
  • Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick from the filler tube by pulling the dipstick. The end of the dipstick will be curved into a circle to allow a finger to slide into the circle to withdraw the dipstick.
  • Place a funnel into the dipstick tube and fill the transmission with new fluid by pouring the fluid into the dipstick tube.
  • Remove the funnel and check the fluid level with the dipstick until the fluid reaches the "Full" mark on the tip of the dipstick.
  • Start and allow the engine to run for a few minutes.
  • Move the transmission gear selector through all of the gears while depressing the brake pedal.
  • Turn the engine off and check the fluid level on the dipstick. Add transmission fluid if necessary.
Best of luck.

2000 saturn SL2 A/T...drain tranny, how much fluid to refill? no owners manual....surprise!!!!!

I don't have your car, but there is one of two ways to check the fluid level for a tranny. One is with the dip-stick, and it should be checked after you have been driving the car and with the engine still running. If you just drained it, fill it up to max of the dipstick level, drive it a bit, then recheck. Repeat until it's good. The other way to check fluid level is by a fluid check plug which is somewhere on the side of the tranny. Just un-screw the bolt and pour in the fluid (using the fill hole) until you see it running out of the side of the fluid check hole. Close everything back up, take it for a spin, and re-check the fluid.

I have a 1999 Saturn SL 2. The transmission fluid is not registering until 5 quarts and then won't register again. The car got stuck in low. Even in park it goes forward. It will not go over 30 mph and the...

The Saturn TAAT takes 6.5 quarts when empty and roughly 4.5-5.5 quarts when doing a drain and refill.

The proper way to check the fluid is to take the car on the highway for about 15 miles of highway driving. This will get the transmission up to operating temperature. Idling will do no good for fluid that is just being circulated and needs to get warm.

Then return to your driveway and place the vehicle in park and keep it running. Pop the hood and look for the red dipstick just left of your battery. That is the transmission dipstick. Pull it out and clean it off then quickly put it back in completely and take it back out (do this somewhat rapidly). Get a reading and repeat to get accurate results.

There is no "check plug hole" that diagram is not correct and the 99 S-series does not look like that. There is no "fill cap" all ATF is entered through the dipstick via a funnel.

Next check your shifter cable where it attaches to the top of the transmission. If you look behind your behind directly down towards the ground you can see a half disc shaped black plastic piece. This is the range sensor. This is where the cable attaches to the transmission. If it is loose or incorrectly calibrated to the proper gear then the transmission will not correspond to the correct gear on the shifter inside the car.

Where is the dipstick for trany located under the hood

Some models do not have a dipstick. There is a plug in the back of the tranny that you pull. with the vehicle running in park and the fluid warm, the fluid should be level with the hole. It will drain out if there is to much. The fill is ontop, there is a red plug that is hand screwed in.

2002 toyota sienna change transmission fluid and

The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.

As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

Where is a dipstick for the automatic transmission fluid level located on 2006 Torrent

there is no dipstick. the fluid must be checked from under the vehicle. fluid must be at 209* f.
or trans will be overfilled. there is a plug on the right end of the trans( 7/16" )& must be removed with engine running, if at proper temp & fluid comes out then trans is full.
