How many miles are on the tranny? Any modifications? Tiptronics are NOT overbuilt like other parts of the car. They do fail. Usually, however, you will get a stored code or all the gear indicators on the dash come on at the same time. When that happens, start looking for a new/used tranny.

How do i change the gear oil for a toyota yaris 2007? i'm having difficulty changing my gears

There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the gearbox. Unlike engine oil, usually the filling location for gear oil is on the side of the gearbox. You use a syringe or a specialised tool to get the gearoil in, and when it gets up to the level of the hole it's full. However I do agree with agent91 that your clutch is a more likely cause. there are some tests you can do to check the health of your clutch e.g. drive along in 4th at 40, clutch down, rev to redline, snap out clutch keeping your foot on throttle, and if revs don't drop to the correct speed in around a second you're slipping.

The automatic gearbox on my mondeo 2002 changes gears but slips

In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.

It seems oil level is low in your gearbox, and it most likely leaking from adapter bushing ( where cable is connected to gearbox).
You need to replace seals or complete bushing and correct oil level.
Better if you visit your mechanic.

Dear vdizon it seems your bearings are slipping inside your transmission.
This is usually caused by inproper use or stress to the transmission. Changing gears at high revs and double clutching may have caused the bearings to wear, or a service on the gearbox has not been performed by factory recomendation. I advise you to book your car into your mechanic to confirm the problem before the proble escalades.
I hope this has helped you.

Auto gearbox on grand cherokee 2005 3.0 crd

Dipstick should be on left side of engine back near firewall. If it sounds like its slipping and does not move till 3K rpms, it is slipping. Low fluid, internal wear or converter draining back into unit when sitting for some time can cause this. If fluid smells burned, change it. If there is a ton of fine metal or non metallic debris in pan, you likely need a rebuild.(there is always some in pan but should not be excessive) Sometimes using a good trans additive/conditioner can extend the service life somewhat but no chemical can replace a worn component.
