Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

Took the car on a 70 mile trip..upon arriving home, (in the driveway) the tranny fluid suddenly began pouring out. I found grommet material and believe the filler tube or seal for the tube may be bad. I am a female with some mechanical ability, I've fixed some minor repairs...is it complicated to replace this tube/oring?

No. you need a 13mm wrench to remove the bolt that holds the tube down rand a new o-ring from the parts store. very simple but a little hard to access from above and would be much easier if you had a lift to put the car in the air. but if you get it high enough you will be able to do it.

1991 toyota tercel 1.5 automatic trans. drove to my nephews house and then back home "17 miles round trip" about half mile from home car wont shift first gear to second


Jorge, as richie46 recommended check trans, fluid level. At higher mileages,150,000 the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Hydraulic clutch fluid container was empty. Added more. Will this totally fix the issue of difficult shifting?


Putting in fluid was just a temporary fix. You need to find and fix the leak that caused the fluid loss.

1996 Ford Winstar w/ recent tranny flush


well, i used to work at a transmission repair shop, and it is true that you're supposed to overfill these transmissions, but only by ONE quart. 4 quarts would certainly cause a big problem if thats what they did. the speedometer issue however is related only to the vehicle speed sensor which is a common problem on this transmission. i would STRONGLY recommend you bring it to a transmission repair shop (obviously a different one than before) becuase this sensor gets corroded and can be just awful to replace.

also, with your speed sensor not working, your transmission will go into limp mode and will have at most two gears. this is normal. as for the fluid leakage, it could be related to them over-overfilling the transmission and the fluid coming out the vent.

I have a 1996 Ford Windstar that just got a tranny flush on. While driving my van on a short trip; The speedometer and odometer quit working. I got home and took the van to where I got it serviced and they...


the fluid was overfull to begin with and on the trip trans got warmed up the fluid expanded and was forced out a vent hole and possibly a blown out seal from the pressure

Slips between gears.


well I guess I will say change the fluid again and change the filter- you simply do not have enough miles to be transmission failure- so my guess wil be the shift solenoid as well - contact dealer to confirm.They will have to change with solenoid anyway.I sold my last honda with 275,000 miles and it had a hard life- no issues ever
