SOURCE: Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.

It sounds like your having some very serious issues.

First off how many miles are on the transmission?
If you have a lot of miles it could be that is it just plain worn out.
When its cold it may work a little better because the fluid is a little thicker and all the parts inside haven't expanded yet(due to heat) allowing them to not "slip" as easily.

I would check your fluid and take a look at it. If its dark and burnt smelling, its time to change it.

If it doesn't smell burned and its a red/oarnge color the fluid is probably fine.

I would then check your fluid level.

If you have to much fluid it can create air bubbles which will cause problems.
If you have to little fluid things won't be lubricated properly and will overheat, and this will also cause problems.

If your fluid level is also fine, then I would check your transmission filter(if equipped). This could be the cause of your problem as well.

If you've made sure you have fresh fluid filled to the correct level and a new transmission filter and it still acts up it is probably just worn out.

Hopefully my tips will get your car going up those hills for a little while longer,

Good Luck,

SOURCE: fill transmission fluid on 19999 audi a4

LISTEN CLOSE. THERE IS A PLUG ON PAN. REMOVE IT. WITH A SYRINGE TYPE CANISTER YOU NEED TO INJECT THE FLUID INTO IT UNTIL IT STARTS TO COME OUT. THEN CAREFULLY START VEHICLE AND INJECT ANOTHER 3/4 QUART UNLESS IT STARTS TO COME OUT OR EVEN A QUART.LET IT RUN FOR 5 MINUTES THEN CONTINUE TO INSERT UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS AND TIGHTEN THE PLUG BACK TO THE PAN. i WOULD ONLY USE AUDI VOLKSWAGON FLUID AND YES IT CAN RUN $14 TO $18 A LITER

SOURCE: 2001 vw beetle tdi diesel. How do I check the

VW automatic transmissions require a special filling tool to fill the transmissions using gravity. They also never recommend a fluid or filter replacement unless a problem is evident. (a leak or shifting problem). They also use a special brown synthec oil that i believe is only available at VW. My advice is to go to a Volkswagen dealer. I'll still tell you how it works. To check the level the vehicle transmission must be cold (not driven at least 8-9 hrs). With a scanner plugged to check fluid temperature in the transmission. RFemove the red cap on the little tube. It's clipped. Once the red cap is removed the black cap can be pulled out. This is the fill tube. This is where the fluid is added using the fill tool. Start the car and remove the 5mm allen screw which looks like a drain. Inside this is a little tube that goes upwards like 3 cm in the pan. (when the oil heats up it expands and leaks out here) With the car running in park, if oil runs out of the pan hole before 35 deg. c there is too much. Let it drain. If no oil leaks at 35 deg. c it's because there is not enough and oil has to be added while the temperature is going up. At 35-40 deg. c oil should spill out ,reinstall the 5 mm allen with the seal, reinstall the filler plug and red cap lock. If the oil is over 26 deg. c before starting your better off waiting till it cools off to have time to add or let drain depending. Strange procedure but the right one.

How to solve overheating automatic gearbox. Warning light comes on after a short hill climb and revs lock and then suddenly release and then go back to normal


I suspect you have almost ruined the transmission. Have you been driving very hard or overloaded? Have the fluid and filter changed. IF you notice a lot of metal fines in the filter, you are in need of a transmission rebuild.

Why does my 98 dodge caravan have trouble climbing hills?


A transmission issue would give vibration tremendously during uphill. If you're not getting the vibration, or burning smell of transmission fluid, suspect clogged catalytic converters.

My 2011 Nissan rogue will not climb hills and won't go above 80miles and hour even though the check engine light did not come on. Is it the transmission fluid or spark plugs?


It could definitely be the transmission fluid. Check the fluid level when the car is running and up to normal operating temp. You should have a mark on the dipstick saying "hot-full mark". That is exactly where your fluid level should be. Make sure you put in the correct fluid type, and that you do not overfill it. If it is not shifting like it should, then it could be time to change out the transmission filter. Not a difficult job, and a lot cheaper than a new tranny...

2004 olds alero transmission fluid how much to fill up


fill it to just above the low level , check it while it is running, (in park) ;-) on a level surface. drive it around the block to warm up the trans, check it again, if it is still low then add some to the full line, check again while running. (don't add fluid when running) it should stay at the full mark at this point.

I have a 1979 ford bronco xlt with a c6. I was going up a hill and all the sudden I started losing power and couldn't go up anymore now my trucks is having shifting problems and they seem to get worse...


The FIRST thing you should do is check your transmission fluid level. If it is low, or if it is real dark (not bright red, like it should be) or if it smells burnt, you might try a fluid and filter change to see if that can make it work for a while. Other than that, it sounds like transmission overhaul time.

How to change the automatic transmission fluid


I'm going to start off and assume you have an automatic transmission, so here's a little background. GM decided it was going to sell the car with "lifetime" transmission fluid that would never need to be changed. As a result, they didn't want the "ignorant" consumer messing around and checking transmission fluid, and eliminated a dip stick.

Instead, there is a transmission check plug on the side of the transmission - if I recall correctly, it is facing the passenger side wheel. To check the level, the car must be warmed up (as with any automatic), but then you have to raise the car and support it so that it is even front to back and side to side.

With the engine running and the car warm, shift it through the gears with your foot on the brake, pausing for a few seconds at each point, and then put it back in park and allow the engine to continue to run. Now, you must get underneath the car and open the level check plug.

If the transmission fluid level is too high, fluid will leak out of the plug. If it is just right, either a little fluid will seep out or you could stick your finger in the plug, and feel the fluid level just below the hole (but of course, you can't do this because you needed to heat up the fluid to get the correct level and you'll burn yourself). If it is too low, you wouldn't feel any fluid if you stuck your finger in, or it would be down quite a bit lower.

Since this requires behind underneath the car when the vehicle is on, it is not recommended that individuals check the level themselves, and they should take it to a shop.

Also, there is a fill plug on top of the transmission. You can remove this and use a funnel to fill the transmission.

Does the rodeo have a automatic transmission dip stick? My son has a rodeo and he tells me he has to climb under the truck to check the trans fluid. I've only had to do this on a manual...


No dipstick, no fill tube. There is a fill and drain plug on bottom of transmission, both face down, the fill is recessed higher. Not on the side as with manual trns you have seen. Take a short low speed drive to warm fluid as it should be "measured" in it's warm expanded state. Turkey baster or equivalent( old gear oil bottle) to squeeze fluid into hole until runs out. While running. Joy. Might as well use lucas brand trans fluid rejuvenator it comes in a squeeze bottle you can fashion a hose to.Cut nozzle a little smaller than hose and squeeze hose through from inside nozzle.

Pull your transmission dip stick smell the fluid,if it smells nasty and burnt,have your transmission serviced.
The tool for all automatic transmissions is CLEAN TRANSMISSION FLUID!

Gear engages a little late


Your transmission is slipping. Check the fluid to make sure it is full. If not bring it up to full and see if the problem persists. If it does you probably have a major problem~make a note of whether it does it worse when cold or at running temperature, if you experience any shudder when changing gears climbing hills etc to determine possible faults.
