I have Toyota Camry 2002 V6 automatic transmission it is shifting very rough I think from 2 to 3 gear at about 30/40 km/h and when slowing down to about 30 km/h AT gives ****

The first thing I suggest to do is change the transmission fluid. This will require you to remove the transmission pan. To Do this: a. purchase transmission fluid, transmission pan gasket, and transmission filter). You may also want to purchase some gasket sealant, but his is not necessary - however it will help hold the gasket to the pan when installing the pan. Put a light beat all the way around the pan, then using your finger spread it the width of the pan (where bolt holes are) and let dry for about 5 minutes before putting new gasket on. Once the gasket is on, let it sit for about 10 minutes so it will stick and stay in place while putting the pan back into position (remember to install new filter before putting pan on).
1. Loosen the front bolts then the side bolts on either side (only one side) then, start removing the bolts on the other side, and the rear one by one until the pan becomes loose enough to lightly pry down. Once this is accomplished, you will drain the fluid into a drop pan (will hold the fluid). Once the majority of the fluid has been drained, slowly remove the rest of the bolts while holding the pan up (can use a small jack) - then lower pan holding it level. Drain remaining contents into the drop pan. (leave pan under transmission while doing this as to allow excess fluid from transmission itself to drain; won't be a lot, but will be some). While the transmission is draining, remove the transmission filter. After you have removed the filter, install the new filter. If you have already put the gasket on the transmission pan, you are ready to install it. When insterting the bolts, put one in each corner of the transmission pan so that all corners are up and the pan is securely in place. This will allow you to install the rest of the bolts without holding the pan up and any side. Insert the other bolts every other hole, finger tight. Once you have these in place, snug each one. Then insert the rest of the bolts, and do the same. When you have snugged the last one, go to the one right next to it (or start with that one) and turn each one just less than a 1/4 turn (ever other one) and do the same for the rest). This will ensure each bolt is snug, and the pan gasket will seal. DO NOT overtighten the bolts as this will cause leaks. Once you have all the bolts snug, lower the vehicle and put the recommended amount of fluid in the transmission (auto parts dealer will tell you how much). Once this is accomplished, start the vehicle and let it idle until at operating temperature. Check fluid for fullness - add fluid if needed until transmission is full. DO NOT overfill the transmission fluid.
If you have any further questions please let me know. Thank you for choosing

I have a 2002 mercury cougar V6 automatic and I know what the problem is. My car needs to have the transmission pan taken out and replaced along with the gasket. My dad and I want to fix it ourselves but...

easy job. Just loosen pan bolts enough to let the fluid start draining from one end. As more drains, keep loosening the pan bolts till you can remove pan and finish draining what's left in the pan. At this time, most people would also change the transmission filter body: it's right on bottom of trans. when the pan is removed, easily accesible. Parts stores sell a kit with new filter and pan gasket included. Anyway, now you are ready to install new pan gasket. Clean gasket mating surfaces as clean as you possibly can. let no oil or fluid get back on there. Place gasket on (most don't recommend adding sealant or gasket compound). Put pan on with all bolts fingertight. Then starting from center outward, start tightening them down to torque specs-it'd be pretty light torque, like around 20 ft-lbs-might want to ask a ford mech. what torque specs are. When done, refill ****** and check for leaks after running car.

Need to find where transmisson fluid pan is 2002 mazda 626 trying to change trans fluid & filter

  • If this is a manual then the filter on this transmission is inside the transmission and is not serviceable unless you want to pull the entire transmission and open it. You will have two plugs on the transmission. One right above the other. Pull the top plug FIRST and then the bottom plug and wait for the transmission to drain. After it drains plug the bottom hole and fill the transmission until fluid just barely seeps out the top. Then plug the top hole and this is a transmission flush on this type of transmission.

  • If this is an automatic transmission then the filter is under the transmission pan itself. Drop the pan then the filter. Clean off old gasket and install new gasket. Place new filter in and replace the pan and snug the pan bolts up. Not to tight just snug them good. Then fill the transmission with a couple quarts of fluid and turn the car on, put your foot on the brake and run the car through all gears to fill the pockets. Check fluid level and adjust accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or comments you can leave them right here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I'm leaking transmission fluid, maybe the gasket is broken I ran over a curve. So I may need to change the gasket and filter while I am at it. So how do you change the transmission filter on a 2002 Buick...

first thing to do is get the car in the air, jack the front up, and place jack stands under it(safety first PLEASE). now slide under and inspect the bottom of the tranny. make sure there are no holes. if you went over the curb, you could have bent the pan, scraped a hole, or tore a line.its not much harder to remove, and access is there. your pan still unbolts the old fashion way. when you drop the pan, you will be looking at the filter. it should have either a bolt or screw holding it in place. while you have the pan down, cleaning it, look for any cracks or damaged outer lip. hope this helps you

I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.

There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!

1999 gmc suburban rpms go up but car does,nt go any faster

Have you checked the transmission fluid level?  Also, have you changed the transmission filter?  I would definately do these two before I would take it to a shop.  A typical transmission filter/gasket kit costs about $10-15 for that truck.  And the transmission fluid will run around $2-4 per quart.
Changing the filter is easy.  You will just take the transmission pan off and then pull the filter out, replace the filter, and then replace the pan gasket.  Then bolt it all back up and fill it with fluid!  It's that simple.

2002 Chevy Malibu Transmission Filter Change...

Not very hard by all means if you have a few basic hand tools, a torque wrench and ramps or a jack and stand to lift the car up...

About 95% of automotive automatic transmissions do not have a drain plug, so you have to remove the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and the filter is up under the pan anyway. Remove all the pan bolts, drop the pan, make sure you have a container ready for the oil under it... If you buy the filter/pan gasket kit and you look at the filter it should be a pinch to spot. 649425d.jpg This is what your particular filter looks like (from the top)

Replace the filter, clean the pan/transmission mating surface with emery cloth, scuff pad, or whatever needs to be used to get the metal clean again (without removing too much material eg. a grinder would definitely cause a leak).

Reinstall the pan with the new gasket (do not use silicone or any type of fluid "gasket maker" Automatic transmissions have a lot of tiny oil passages which can easily be blocked by these products and cause severe transmission damage)

Torque the bolts to the manufacturer's spec (you don't really need a torque pattern, just start from the middle of the pan and alternate from side to side (this is to make sure the pan seats square with the transmission body)) 90% of the time you could tighten them anyway you want and wouldn't have a leak but you want it done right the first time so don't take any chances (you should be able to get the torque value from the parts store where you get the filter/gasket kit). I'm not able to pull out an exact spec for you right now.

Fill the tranny up, then drive th

Transmission fluid change

More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!
