Definitely this is one clunker you need to steer clear off. It is not even worth junk value.

DON"T BUY IT . Burnt smelling ATFand rough shifts mean a new transmission is needed soon. That will make it easier to replace the rear main seal because the trans has to come off the engine to do that. Thats if the engine is still good. No coolant is nat good because you don't know if it was driven that way and maybe overheated or if the rad is leaking and needs to be replaced. Power steering pump empty means it leaks and may need to be replaced as well. You offered $2900,it could cost you that much again to get it operational and reliable.

Why will my car only engage in reverse


First check trans fluid level If OK then make sure there are no problems with shift linkage. If OK then there may be internal damage to clutches also make sure trans. fluid is red and not brown and does not smell burnt. if it does then clutches are damaged, trans repair is necessary. Good Luck!

Where do i check trans fluid 1991 chevy cavalier


  • Fluid - M/T Dexron II Use a funnal add new fluid in the dipstick tube
  • HM-282 and 5TM40 Synchromesh Trans Fluid (Part No. 12345349)
  • GM-Isuzu 5 Speed Manual Transaxle Synchromesh Trans Fluid (Part No. 12345349)
  • Automatic Transaxle Fluid Level Checking Procedure
    VEHICLE APPLICATIONS:
    A, J, L, W Cars AND U-VAN
    BULLETIN COVERS:
    Transaxle fluid level checking and condition information. This updates all information previously published for 1990-93 HYDRA-MATIC 3T40, 4T60, 4T60-E and 4T80-E transaxles.
    Due to enhancement of assembly plant fluid fill capabilities, it is especially important to warm the transaxle up to operating temperature before determining that fluid needs to be added. If the transaxle fluid is close to operating temperature, the fluid level may read slightly below the "ADD" mark. DO NOT ADD FLUID UNLESS THE TRANSAXLE IS AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE AND THE DIPSTICK SHOWS FLUID LEVEL IS BELOW THE CROSSHATCHED AREA.
    TRANSAXLE FLUID LEVEL INFORMATION:
    Checking fluid level and condition (color and smell) at recommended service intervals will provide early diagnosis information about the transaxle. This information may then be used to correct a condition that, if not detected early, could result in major transaxle repairs.
    When adding or changing fluid, use only DEXRON(R)-IIE. Refer to Maintenance and Lubrication (Service Manual Section 0B) for maintenance information and service intervals.
    NOTICE: Do not overfill. Overfilling will cause foaming, loss of fluid, shift complaints and possible damage to the transaxle.Fluid level should only be checked when it reaches a normal operating temperature of 82-93 degrees C (180-200 degrees F). This temperature is reached after approximately 24 km (15 miles) of driving.
    TRANSAXLE FLUID COLOR:
    Fluid color will be red when new.
    IMPORTANT: When new, automatic transaxle fluid is red in color. The red dye is added so the assembly plant can identify it as transaxle fluid and distinguish # from engine oil or antifreeze. The red dye is not an indicator of fluid quality and is not permanent. As the vehicle is driven the fluid will begin to look darker in color. The color may eventually appear light brown. A dark brown color with a burnt odor may indicate fluid deterioration and signal a need for a transaxle fluid change.TRANSAXLE FLUID CHECKING PROCEDURE:
    1. Start engine and drive vehicle until the transaxle reaches operating temperature of 82-93 degrees C (180-200 degrees F). This temperature is reached after about 24 km (15 miles) of driving.Inaccurate fluid level readings will result if the fluid level is checked immediately after the vehicle has been operated under certain conditions:
    - When outside temperatures are above 32 degrees C (90 degrees F) - At sustained high speeds - In heavy city traffic during hot weather - Towing a trailer - In commercial service such as taxi or police use If the vehicle has been operated under any of these conditions, shut the engine off and allow the vehicle to cool for thirty (30) minutes. Then restart the vehicle and continue with step two. 2. Stop vehicle on level ground and put the gear selector in "P" (Park). 3. Set parking brake. 4. With your foot on the brake pedal, move the shift lever through each gear range, pausing for about three seconds in each range. Then put the gear selector back in "P" (Park). 5. Let the engine idle for three to five minutes. 41886034 6. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it with a clean rag or towel. 7. Push it back in all the way, wait three seconds and pull it back out. 8. Check both sides of the dipstick and read the lower level. The fluid should be in the crosshatched "HOT" area. IMPORTANT: The fluid level is ok if it is any where within the cross hatched area. It does not have to beat the top of the cross hatched area. Do not add fluid unless the fluid level is below the crosshatched area. 9. If the fluid level is where it should be, push the dipstick back in all the way. ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID:
    If fluid level is low (after properly performing the checking procedure above) add only enough fluid to bring the level into the crosshatched area. It doesn't take much fluid, generally less than a pint. Don't overfill. Remember that the level does not need to be at the top of the crosshatched area to be correct.
    After adding fluid, always recheck the fluid level as described in the above procedure.

Shifts alittle rough from second to third


first check for auto trans fluid level. then check condition of fluid. it should be clear pink
/clear light brown. there shouldnt be any debris insie and it should not smell. if these are ok, we can suspect that selenoids used to shift gears are getting problematic. those should be checked for continuity and resistance values. this can be only done after removing transmission pan. if out of desired values you need new selenoids. before doing those do not listen anybody says you need a major overhaul for your transmission.

Trans prob


You can NOT check ATF when the engine is off. It must be running. If the ATF is dark, brown, or smells burned, then you need to change it, but it is probably too late. When you turn the engine off, the fluid in the torque converter drains back and gives a reading much higher than real.

My 2002 Mercury Sable will not shift into gear, will shift out of park, but will not go into any gear.


How many miles and how does your transmission fluid look?

Get car ot normal oper. temps and put on level ground. Put trans thru all gears with foot on brake. Put into park, leave running and check level. If level is low, this could be part or all of your problem. If level is fine and trans fluid is not brown or burnt, you have an electronic problem.

If fluid checks ok, let me know if you have a Check engine light on, ABS light, etc.

Hope that helps.

Transmission


You need to check the trans fluid level first thing. Note the color of the fluid. Brown = bad news Redish is good. If you are in the redish (hopefully you are) Then you need to get to a trans shop to get the shift solenoids checked. A good trans shop will fix this problem with out trying to sell you a rebuild. Again High miles usually will result in a rebuild and the Brown fluid. Trans needs fluid changed (EVERY 30 K ) regaurdless what anyone says. This service is around 100 dollars. (fluid and filter change) Shift Solenoid At a good shop should be no more than 150.00 parts and labor.
