If the shifter moves check under the hood at the trans and see if the cable is movung when you move the shifter. Sounds as if the shift cable broke and needs replaced. If nothing moves under the hood, have someone hold their foot on the brake and shift the trans from under the hood, if it shifts then you know for sure the cable is bad.

I have a 1977 Mercedes 300d the fluid burps out of dipstick tube and unable to competly fill trans will blow out while driving or after I park.

Trans' may be already full. The dip stick is attached to the trans' pan corner and out of the way of rotating parts.

With engine idling, dip trans very quickly...fluid should be below lower mark if fluid is cold and just below the upper mark if warm.

How to change transmision fluid and filter

Frist look to see if your trans has a plug in the bottom of your pan. If so drain your trans of fluid. If it doesn't you must loosen pan bolts and drain fluid from the sides of the pan it self. Then you must loosen and remove your bolts on your pan to get to the filter that is connected inside of trans either by bolt or clipped in place. remove filter and replace with new one only. Then replace your pan gasket with new one only. To keep pan gasket in place useing gasket sealer. make sure gasket is completely in place matching all holes. When tighting bolts Do not over tighten 20lbs torque is all that is required. Be sure all bolts are tightened at same torque. Replace fluid with required fluid that manafacture requiers for that vehicle. Pouring fluid into your transmission dip stick tube useing a small funnel. Replace only as much fluid as you have taken out. Do not over fill or serious damage is very possible to trans. once fluid is in transmission start your vehicle in park. check your dip stick on trans. If it doesn't read at full mark. Add more fluid until it does. #1 Once your at the full mark place your foot on brake and shift shifter through all gears park,rev, nutrual, drive. drive low, then back to park. #2Check your stick again to see if fluid is still at full. Add fluid if it is not full. and repeat #1 If your fluid is at full after going through your gears. Put car in drive and move forward slowly. It should move. If not repeat #1 #2 once trans is full and doesn't slip. It's safe to drive. Check trans at about 1 mile down road. If fluid is full your done. It is easier and much safer to take it to a garage if your not sure you are going to be able to do all this. It is safer for you to have it changed for under 75 dollars then to replace your transmission. Then to pay 2000 dollars to replace a screwed up transmission. They are damaged so easy and aren't at all easy to fix. So if in dought see a professional. Don't attempt it your self. Good luck

What would cause the transmission not to engage in any gear? Linkage is attached and working properly.

Does it hold in park? If not then maybe a broken axle. if it does hold in park make sure it is full of fluid. If the fluid level is high suspect a broken trans pump or pump drive component.

Have a 1985 Mercedes 300D. Transmission fluid line rubbed against engine and created a hole. 2 1/2 quarts of fluid leaked out. Fixed the line. Put in fresh Dexron iii/m. Container said also suitable for...

Unless you observed the utmost in cleanliness when repairing the line and addling fluid, you may have gotten some junk in the tranny. The smallest impurity in transmission fluid can cause operational difficulties. If your lucky (and clean) you may have simply under or overfilled the trans. This can cause the shift points to change dramatically. Check the fluid level again. If you're not sure how to properly check the trans. fluid: park on a very level surface night before checking level, next morning depress parking brake and allow engine to run for 2-3 minutes before checking. Use a clean lint free rag to check level on the dipstick. If you are over full, drain some fluid off until you get it right, obviously if you are still low, add some more. Dextron-Mercon is a suitable trans. fluid for your car.

My car will not reverse but it will go forward

Sounds like a typical reverse band problem...cover the easy things first however... is the fluid full??? check it engine hot in the fluid burnt??? bad smell not red like out of the can... if its low or if its burnt make sure you purchase the proper fluid for your particular vehicle some trans fliuds dont mix...a trans service may fix it as the trans has a filter that (may) be clogged but usually this causes a non shift in drive as well as reverse...if all else fails sounds like a trans repair/replacement is in the horizons.Cost factors: Trans fluids $3.00 qt.: trans service $30.00-$100.00: Trans repair/replacement $600.00-$1500.00.

Car won't shift in to any gears

'99 silverado 4x4,new trans,no gears.

I don't see you did anything wrong per your description.
With the engine off, check the level of the transmission oil, replace the dipstick, start the truck and recheck the fluid level, level should drop. This will indicate the front pump is working.

Next, with truck running, put transmission into any gear, then return to park position. Do you hear any ratcheting noise.

Let me know.

Transmision Shifting Problem

Was the fluid you drained red or black? did it smell like trans or gear oil? With linkage disconnected, could you put trans in park by moving the lever on the side of the unit? Oil condition is likely a separate issue...most "blown" transmissions generally have normal operation of shift, it just dosen't do what you tell it to. two things likely going on are: linkage problem and likely in need of fluid/filter change.

Checking trans fluid level 4.7l 2001 laredo

First check your owners manual if you have one if not, then follow this proceedure. With vehicle in park & ignition off, open hood & remove the dip stick from the trans, should be some markings on dip stick that is stamped w/check in park or check in neutral. There will also be some hash marks, cold add/full, hot add/full. If checking cold, fluid levle will should be between the add & full, if checking the fluid level after driving, w/the vechile still running, check the fluid level w/the vechile in park or neutral, depending on what is stamped on the dip stick, check the hot level, should be between add & full. If fluid level at htis point is on add, then add 500 ml of fluid, check level again and add as needed.

Hope this is helpful.
