A transmission is extremely complicated if you don't have experience. i would definetly not take the chance. there are way too many small components thet have to go back the same way you took them out. also each gear needs to be inspected for wear, and all (all) bearings should be replaced. rather let an expert do it, thereafter you also have a warranty.

Transmission dipstick location


Check your owners or a service manual (or just call a Cadillac dealer, ask for the service department, and ask).

There are a number of newer automatic transmissions that no longer have a "dipstick" and are sealed units. These must be checked/serviced by the dealer or a transmission specialist. I don't know if your vehicle has one of these, but would not be surprised to find it does.

Recently I have investigated about getting it serviced, Mine has just come out of warranty, Toyota dealer is asking $442.00 for service, after speaking with a number of transmission specialists they recommend 40,000 service intervals. Costing approximately $330.00 just ensure your transmission service technician is using the Toyota recommended oil which is "WS"

Transmission is leaking from my 2008 ford escape. The VIN number does show that it was manufactured in Kansas, but because i am in Canada the recall did not include canadian owners.


What do you need? I would cantact Ford of Canada in back of owner manual with letter, not phone, if issue is the same. TEXT:

In some of the affected vehicles, the transmission fluid cooler may develop a crack in the tube below the right hand (RH) mounting bracket from thermal and vibration fatigue. This may lead to a small transmission fluid leak and possible rough / harsh shifts. Dealers are to inspect the transmission fluid cooler for a grommet and possible fluid leak below the RH mounting bracket. Based on the results of the inspection, dealers will perform one of the following service

actions:

INSPECTION

1. Using a suitable light, look through the radiator grille and inspect the transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket for a grommet behind the mounting bolt. See Figure 1 and Figure 2.


Inspection Result Service Action

Grommet present - No further action required


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler not leaking - Install transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler leaking - Install new transmission fluid cooler.

I have a 1997 Volvo S90 that is experiencing rough shifting from 1st to 2nd, and back down. I waas told this was not a transmission problem per se, but a sensor on the tranny that needs to be replaced. ...


Hi,
First off who told you it isn't a transmission problem?
I would of course check the fill level. How many miles on the vehicle? How long since the transmission was serviced? Was the transmission serviced at the dealer? Who did service it?
Right now I would check to top it off following the manual's instructions or taking it to a dealer. If you take it to the dealer you will pay more for the fluid but you will most likely be able to pick their brain while they 'test' the fluid level. Please trust the manufacturer on 99% of 'what to do' if recommended. Also ask the dealer to see if there are 'recalls' you would be amazed how much people can save looking for minor and major recalls on their vehicles.

Would like to service my 2006 ford Five Hundred transmission. I am told that it takes a very special and expensive fluid. Is the job strait forward other than that?


I own a "06" 500 with 150,000 miles on it. My Ford dealer recommended transmission service at around 90,000 miles. I don't recall the exact cost but it didn't seem unreasonable, around $140.00. No special pump out or filtration, just drain and refill.

Dealer is telling me that to get the transmission flushed and gasket changed is $350! What is that about? I am having zero problems with it, but has 75,000 miles on it and has never been flushed


A transmission fluid service does not cost $300 dollars so it sounds like they are going to hook it up to a machine and flush out all the fluid in the transmission. Most automatic transmissions should have a trans service done every 12,000 miles(except BMW they are sealed). I personally think these so call transmission flushes are not needed all though your vehicle is way overdue for a trans service. How does the trans fluid look? They might be recommending this service because you have that many miles and never had the trans serviced. If you have had regular trans services done then you do not need a flush. Ask them how much a regular transmission service is and if they do not offer it to you then take it to a local mechanic and have it done.
