Transmission light goes on.put transmission fluid in then the light stops.in about 2 days its on again


Transmission fluid unlike oil usually do not burn up if it was low you probably have a leak. You would not want to overfill a transmission.
You may need a fluid/filter change, the filter may be clogged and limiting the flow of fluid. Take the car in to a dealer and have them read the code, they usually will do code reading for free. Usually transmission fluid is checked when engine is warm and the engine running in park. Do not overfill ..

Leaking transmission fluid


If the fluid is leaking it should not be at normal level when you checked it unless it was overfilled.
Did you check it with the vehicle idling in park?

Oil leaking or burning


this can be very simple to solve,after you've driven the car for,say,20 miles or maybe even 15 miles,place a piece of plain brown cardboard under the motor on ground.under the motor.make sure the engines not running,just slide the cardboard under the motor on the ground.you can even put a big piece under the whole front of car,from side to side. your whole motor is in front,including the transmission. black fluid is oil leak,red fluid is transmission fluid. if your engines burning oil,then you'll be adding oil to your engine constantly. depending on how often you drive your vehicle. just remember black fluids oil leak,red fluids,transmission fluid leak. if your motors smoking black while running, that's oil burning with your gas. you may only have a simple issue,your check engine light on? autozone or advance auto parts store can read the codes for free!! thank you,for choosing fixya.com

What are some issues to look for that would cause car not to move in any gear, but you can feel it wants to go when raising rpms. Could this be the trans is gone or something minor. Helping a friend and...


Lets assume the park brake is off. If you put it in gear, forward or reverse and the engine revs but care doesn't move, you are either very low on automatic transmission fluid or the transmission is burned up. Check the fluid level. If normal smell the fluid. If it smells burned, there is no doubt that the transmission is burned up.

White smoke from exaust


Hi,
When white smoke is spewing from your exhaust, it is usually an indication that something is burning. The typical culprit is a burning fluid from the vehicle, but other causes are possible.

Oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze are the three fluids most likely to be the cause of white smoke coming from your exhaust. Ruptured seals, leaky bolts and blown gaskets can expose oil to hot spots, making it burn. Pinholes or loose lines can cause antifreeze to spray on the engine, while transmission fluid can be sucked into the engine and burn


Here is a form of solution or prevention which can help you out;
Keep your fluids at the appropriate level and change them at the recommended intervals to reduce leaks and maintenance issues. Use the proper types of fluids as well. The wrong transmission fluid can cause your gears to stick and wear down, while the wrong oil can reduce lubrication on the engine and cause internal damage. Improper mixture or wrong type of antifreeze can cause overheating.


Good luck.

When you put the shifter to drive position, transmission doesnt move, when in hot engine running. why?


Check your automatic transmission fluid level. It's most likely low, very old and burned, or both. Bad transmission fluid is brownish and gives off a strong burning odor. If your fluid level is just low, you may have a leak. If you park your car in the same spot everyday, look for a pool of fluid. If not, leave some newspaper under the car when you park it. When you return, check the newspaper for fluid. Depending on how many miles you have on the car, changing the fluid would be a good idea, especially if it has more than 60k miles. Most cars require changing transmission fluid every 30k miles and since your car is newer, I'm assuming it was changed at the 30k mile service check. I hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Leaking red fluid


The red fluid is transmission fluid, check the transmission fluid level, if it get's to low the transmission will burn out and your looking at a expensive job.
The fluid could be leaking from the transmission cooler line to the radiator in front of the car. Have it repaired and keep an eye on the fluid level to the transmission. Note: transmission fluid is flammable and may catch fire if slashed on to any hot area's like the exhaust.
Good luck and hope this helps.
