SOURCE: 3,3 engine,changing side pan on trans what is

if you choose to do it at home all you can drain out is about 40%. A shop machine will replace 100%. Just keep that in mind if you really want to preserve the trans since these transmissions are prone to high rate of failures. Number 1 reason trans fail is do to bad fluid.

Replaced radiator but trans fluid is still mixing with coolant

Are you sure it's is ****** fluid and not oil? Just asking because that sound odd. If it is oil it would be a head gasket. In that case the bottom of the radiator cap will look like choclate milk. If you're sure it is trans fluid it would be cheaper to put a aftermarket transmission cooler on it and plug the radiator off where the lines hook in.

I have a 1995 ford explorer, lately it seems as if the trans is pulling, but when the gas is lightly pressed it seems to shift correctly what do u think the problem could be.

First thing I would do is change trans fluid and filter if trans is acting out of the "norm". On cars, trans fluid and filter should be changed every 50k, on trucks and vehicles that do frequent towing, trans fluid should be done every 30k. (I'm assuming this is an automatic trans - you didn't mention)

'99 mercury Sable with auto transmission: Hesitates a few seconds when shifting from Park to Drive. Seems to shift OK when driving.

Several things to do about this. Look in your Radiator reservoir for a oily sheen and do the same thing for the Radiator if it has a cap and is not sealed. Have the Trans fluid changed and the Trans filter serviced. If possible get a sample of the Trans fluid.

If both the fluids look normal you only need fresh Trans fluid and the Trans filter serviced. Some filters are replaceable and some are just screens which need periodic cleaning. If the fluids do not look good then the Radiator may be leaking into the Trans fluid via the cooling lines. The delay may be due contamination corroding the first of many parts.

The gear engagement is dependent on engine RPM. If, for some reason your motor is idling slower at Startup, the initial gear engagement will be delayed. You could also be down on fluid, which would mean another problem.

The chances of cross contamination are very slim, but it is mentioned because your shifting can be affected in small ways at first, then big costly ways. The self-diagnostics in your car does not cover this problem.

Take the time to check the reputation of the shop you deal with for this simple service.

Transmission fluid

alot of the newer cars do not have a checker. If you have no leak then its full. You just service it at the recommended intervals. How you fill them is you have a drain and a full cap. You remove the full cap and fill till it comes out. The fill cap is on the side of the trans and is accessable from the bottom

Either it one heck of a coincidence or the trans is somehow associated with or to the water temp.. The only way I know of is the transmission oil cooling. Ck the trans fluid level and onsider having the trans service.Oil change and filter and confirm or ask about the relationship of cooland and trans, if there is any. Good Luc and please let me know what you find out. Thanks Ned

Transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto

VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

I can not locate trans.dip stick on a 1998 Olds Cutlass.

Sorry I think the 1998 cutlass has a 4t40e trans. It has no dipstick. You have to remove a plug by the passenger CV shaft and fill the trans until fluid runs from the plug.
