How much transmission fluid goes in a 02 saturn

You only lost a few ounces

You warm the trans up to 180 degrees
or more & check fluid levels as you always
do & add if necessary

Why not change all the fluid while your there

That has to be done every 3 years anyway

You can do it once a year if you like

You do not add to any trans cold
Has to be at 180 or more

Brake pedal travel long-slow to stop.

check your front brake pads and see if they need replaced then check your brake fluid after you change them. If you add brake fluid first you will leak brake fluid out when you compress the calipers to change the front brake pads. In the end make sure your brake master cylinder is full of dot 3 brake fluid before you drive.

How much transmission fluid is needed in a 1991 chev 1/2 ton pickup . Changing tranmission fluid and filter.

Dear Madam or Sir,

the problem with this the fact, that a large amount of fluid will remain in the torque converter. So knowing how much fluid has to be filled into an empty transmission will not be useful for you, you would overfll your transmission.

Usually you have to measure the amount of oil coming out of the transmission and refill the same amount .

Now you have to refill quart-wise, check the oil level, fill up and so on.

There´s no better solution I can offer you, I´m sorry.

How to change front brakepads on Nissan Almera 1996. I need to change the brakepads of my Nissan Almera but don´t know how to take off those ''claims'' that lock the pads. And I´m not sure how to...

all disc brakes work in a similar way. there are hold down bolts for the calipers which is what pads mount in. there is usually a keeper system that wont allow the pads to just fall out and usually cant be removed until you release the caliper. the hold down bolts may be bolt heads, allen heads or a larger star bit head. once the pads are removed you need to check the fex hoses condition and the rotors condition before you just slap a pair of new pads on. if the car had a slowregular wobble feel as you applied the brakes the rotors are likely warped from heat and need to be replaced or turned if the y are the type that can be turned. the caliper piston need to carefully be pushed back into the caliper. you need to watch your brake fluid resivoir while you do this as the fluid level will come up a little as you compress the cylinder back into the caliper. if you do all four disc brakes it can rarely even overflow depending on if you have added brake fluid lately. dont leave the cover for the brake resivoir off or the cap to the brake fluid off as brake fluid will draw moisure from the air quickly an affect the performance of the fluid if it gets too much water in it.
the best tool to sue to get the pistons back in can be purchased from your parts store for under 20 dollars and evenly and slowly compresses the piston back in. if you dont have one or choose not to buy one a mid size c clamp works well to. the main thing is not to get the caliper piston stuck by pushing it back in unevenly. this can require you to replace the caliper which would then require the brakes be bleed etc.
once back the brakes shoes can be put in place making sure you have the inner and outer shoes oriented correctly. some cars the pads are the same and in some they are different. there is a great little product called disc brake quiet that you smear on the bake of the new pads which prevents them from rattling or making any noise.
if all else checks out you now put the pad keepers back in which can sometimes be a challenge if your new at it then re mount the caliper on the car.check the brake fluid level and the operation of the brakes before you put the wheel back on then take a safe test drive. if done correcrly the brakes should feel smoother than they did and stop evenly without making any noise.
this is just a primer on disc brake replacement and requires skill and expertise and observation of other parts as you perform this. mechanics do this automatically since they may do 5-10 brake jobs a day so this advice is for informational use only and does not mean you are skilled enough to do this safely but this is the the basics on how to do it. good luck.

My back right wheel locked why and what can I do

The exact same thing happened to my 2004 Aveo on the same side. I had it towed to the mechanics and they informed me that GM glues the shoes to the pads and when they seperate they jam up and that locks your wheel. I had to get new brakes on the back so I just did the entire car in case they were all like that. Hope this helps.

Can i do a tune up or is there extra precautions i have to take in doin so?

Hello- Basic maintenance on your CL consists of either normal or scheduled. Normal is air filter/oil/fluids/plugs/brakes/tires, etc. Scheduled service is 90/180/270k miles---- Timing belt/water pump/tensioner/thermostat/coolant/belts/trans oil/brake fluid. Parts for 90k are about 300$.- Buy timing belt/water pump/tensioner from Acura. Use only NGK plugs. Let me know if this info helps- have more if you need it.- Thanks- ED

What is the average time it will take to change brakes and brake fluid on a 2006 Scion Tc?

If you are talking about changing the brake pads on the vehicle all the way around it would take approximately 2 hrs. To change the brake fluid about another hour or so.........but not sure as to why you are going to change the brake fluid. If you not sure if the brake fluid is good or not go to your local parts store and get the brake test strip test kit and test your fluid to see if the integrity of it is still ok. Most of the time brake fluid will last a long time without any problems.
