I worked for Ford for 6 years and if the od light comes on and blinks then you have a problem if it comes on solid and then turns itself off it could be a pressure issue in the transmission or as simple as the od light having a short in it. You need to remember this, If your transmission has more than 100k on it sometimes when you flush the transmission (service it) it will clean off the clutch plates so much on a high mileage vehicle that the trans will began to slip afterwards. If you service the trans yourself also know that just takeing the filter off and replaceing it doesn't do really any good because you will still have at least 8 quarts of old fluid that stays in your torque converter. Go by Auto Zone or Advance and get them to pull the code out of your computer for you, they will do this for free at most parts houses. Even if the light is not on the code will be stored in the computer of your vehicle.The code definition may help you decide on the direction to go from there. I hope this helps sorry if it is confusing, Roger

My transmision fluid is black and two transmision mechanics say if you change transmision fluid the car wont run no more is this true sombody please help me they are saying im going to need a new...

The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

Nissan 300zx transmission replacement

No, that is not true, you can only use one from another 300ZX, 1990-91 for a manual transmission, 1990-93 for an automatic. Also you have to get the one for if you have twin turbo, or one if you don't.

A person told me I could use transmission fluid for power steering fluid ??? dis be true?

back in the day, possibly, nowadays, no. ATF is 'slippery' and PS fluid is more like hydrolic fluid than anything else

Car stuck in gear.I had to remove cv joint shaft in order to get moving.what could be the problem and what caused this?

Its probably shift linkage between shift handle and transmision get under car and find where the shifter comes through the cars floor and check the rod arms that run between shifter and tranny, if its good then its internal transmision.

Is my transmision going out

If it only does this in third gear and no others then your tranny is faulty in that gear. Expensive fix.. I would make sure that your fluid is full and clean before I change the tranny.

Knock sensor

Nope. The knock sensor detects knocks in the engine and retards detonation in the timing.

Car not shifting would be bad vacuum operated actuator on outside of tranny or bad syncros or other internal transmission parts
