Lubricant fluids come in different viscosities and contain different additives for longevity. The type of oil needed also depends on the type of transmission (automatic or manual) and the wear patterns on the parts themselves. Some are very similar, some are very different. Adding the wrong one can be a headache, but if you are under the gun or tight on cash you can drain the 'wrong oil' and replace it with the specified oil in your owner's manual.

I am a chrysler tech. when flashing your vehicle I beleive you update the pcm. It is a two step flash that also programs the Tcm region of the controller. This can fix some issues with coast down shifts or harsh shifts but rarely fix a trans. shudder.

SOURCE: DRAINED TRANSMISSION FLUID

alright on the bottom of the transmisson on the pan there is a low plug (bolt) and a high one. the low plug is for draining and the other is for filling. use the high plug near the rear of the pan. But you have to use a pump to get it in. the same pump as you use for a transfer case. its kind of like a syringe or a grease gun. but you dump ur atf in it and pump it in.

SOURCE: how do I drain transmission fluid (2000 sable ls(dohc))?

On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?

SOURCE: replace manual transmission fluid 2001 Saturn L200

on most cars that i have serviced the trans. if the trans has a dipstick tube. you can fill it from there. look for a plug that has a square hole (like a 1/2" ratchet would fit into) or the plug maybe a square head or even a bolt shaped plug. the drain could be on the side of the trans or the bottom. get yourself a Haynes manual #87020 at your local auto parts store or online

SOURCE: where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000

There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.

Mazda 1999 B3000 what specifically needs to be replaced when transmission fluid get into the radiator?


The radiator must have an internal leak between the coolant and the reservoir for cooling the transmission fluid. Replace the radiator, drain and flush the engine and heater core, and drain and replace the transmission filter. You will need to remove the lower transmission pan, let it drain out (about 6 quarts), then replace the filter that is there, just underneath the pan. If you see any evidence of coolant in the transmission fluid, put it back together, run the vehicle for a bit-till the engine has warmed up, a short drive should do-then shut it off and drain the transmission fluid again.

When the transmission is drained this way, not all the transmission fluid will be drained-about half will still be in there, mostly in the torque converter. So if the fluid is contaminated, you need to drain and refill at least twice.

My 2009 toyota corolla has a code p2757. Its related to a solenoid. how do I go about solving my problem?


well my transmission officially blew up due to the torque converter. I suggest dropping the transmission pan then taking the solenoids out and cleaning the hell out of them, drain as much trans fluid as possible and replace the gasket and filter. Replace the trans pan after putting all the solenoids back into place I also suggest using Lucas Stop Slip Trans Fix when refilling the fluid. DO NOT OVERFILL AND DO NOT UNDERFILL. Take your time on putting new good fluid in not cheap stuff. If all this doesn't work or make a change then the next step is to replace your torque converter. This in involves taking the transmission out pulling the T converter out and replacing it you also have to do a fluid change regardless even after you try changing it the first time to see if it fixed your issue. Any shavings inside the torque converter will contaminate your new fluid if the first fluid change doesn't work therefore 2 fluid changes would be necessary if you don't solve the issue the 1st time after cleaning the solenoids. Try these steps and get back to me and we will go from there. I hope this helps as a brand new transmission is 4,000 dollars. Good luck and keep me posted.

My 1994 Ford Explorer Limited 4X4 had a really bad leak after driving it and all the transmission fluid drained out when i put the vehicle in gear. Is that the front seal? maybe the water pump?


If your having to add transmission fluid and not coolant, then the water pump is ok, fill with transmission fluid look under truck, if fluid is coming out of between engine and transmission housing, then bad front transmission seal.

My 92 ford tempo shifs hard


If you have recently changed you Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF), the wrong type of fluid may have been put in. Incorrect fluid will cause the transmission to shift poorly. Old or dirty transmission fluid can also cause issues with the designed operation . If you can not remember the last time you changed the ATF or have never changed the ATF, see if an ATF change fixes the issues you are experiencing. Consider having the transmission filter changed also. If you continue to have hard shifting after this there may be more serious problems developing that may have to be dealt with.

This is not the torque converter -- they don't cause slippage problems.

There is something wrong with your transmission. It sounds like the front pump isn't making it anymore. It would be a good idea to get a "test drive" and estimate from a transmission shop to get a more diagnostic answer to what exactly is wrong, but you can bet it's not the converter.

Do make sure there is ample fluid in the transmission.

Also, sometimes just replacing the filter and the fluid is all it takes. If the filter is starving the pump you'll get this kind of problem. The filter is on the bottom of the transmission, inside the pan. Put a tray under the transmission, then loosen the pan bolts a little to drain the fluid in a controlled fashion.

Replace the filter, put the pan back on (after cleaning the gasket surface clean as a whistle and bone dry), then refill with new fluid.

Exploded transmission 48 hours after ATF flush


I see no correlation between the two events.  Things just happen on an old car.  I'd question spending money to fix the 11-year old car, or replace it with something newer and less miles.  I'd replace the car.
