If it is auto, make sure transmission fluid is at correct level. If it is too low the transmission will do all sorts of weird things.

Do I need to replace transmission again?


check the fluid levels first. They could be low or have bubbles. Low trans fluid is most likely. Bubbles can be a bad valve body.

Automatic transmission service adjustments for 2000 mazda bravo


There should not need to be any "adjustments" for a normal fluid and filter service for your vehicle, unless you have replaced some parts of your transmission that requires adjustment such as the gearshift lever, intermediate and overdrive band, throttle cable, or transmission range sensor/switch.

With that said, the band adjustment specs are "Tighten the band adjusting screw to 10 Ft.Lbs. (14 N.m.) then back off 2 full turns. While holding band adjusting scew stationary, tighten the locking nut to 35-45 Ft.Lbs. (48-61 N.m.)

Passenger side cv axle leaks transmission fluid. The axle has excessive play when moved up and down. Is problem inside transmission to allow the up and down play. No play in and out.


It will be part of the differential section. Usually easier, quicker and cheaper to source a second gearbox. Gearbox's are full of gears believe it or not, but also spring parts etc. They are not for the amateur to overhaul and often require specialised tools.

OK..............There is no transmission fluid just clutch fluid. Its in a small reservoir on the firewall. I think you have a worn clutch or it needs the lines adjusted. If the clutch doesn't engage until the pedal it almost at the top then you need to adjust it or replace it. The cleaner you put in is irrelevant to your problem. There is gear oil in the transmission though but that's not the problem either. The clutch cable is easy to adjust, just loosen the lock nut and spin the cable adjuster until the pedal feels right. Hope this helps :)

When gasing the engine tranny slips


If you have a manual transmission it is time to replace your clutch. If you have an automatic transmission it is time for a transmission rebuilt. You can have your auto trans fluid and filter changed and this might help, but I doubt it. There is very little you can do for a slipping clutch in a manual tranny except replace the clutch. If you have a manual tranny with a clutch that is manual adjusted then the cluth may be out of adjustment, but I doubt you have a manually adjusted clutch it is more then likely hydralic.

My transmission will only use 2 and 3rd gear and i have too shift it my car is a 90 honda accord the green sprt shift light stays on


Generally autos love clean transmission fluid and periodic cleaning and adjusting.
Suggest you drop the transmission pan and give everything a good clean and blow out followed by some nice clean trans fluid.
If it smells like burnt clutch and there are black particles present the bands may need replacing.
After everything is clean, and if it is still playing up, check continuity in the " sport " switch to ensure it is working properly. If switch is ok start looking for damaged wires.
Happy hunting
