You can change it and see what happens if the fluid is black it is considered burnt . Here the test is it slipping? Then it will need to be rebuilt. If there is no slippage then just go ahead a replace the fluid and the filter

Could be the auto transmision. Check the trans oil at the dipstick. If it is brown with a burned nutty smell the transmision will need overhauling or replacing. There are other possible faults such as overheating or not running on all cylinders. You may have to get it checked out by a mechanic.

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.

Check engine and transmision work bad

I had the same issue. Dodges tend to have some faulty transmissions. Usually it's not too bad. I had to replace my transmission valve body. Usually a sensor or solenoid go bad. Turn the key on/off three times and it will display a code. Google the code or take it to a shop.

Transmission going bad?

popping out of gear means your shifting forks need adjustment, same as the grinding. the tranny is probably good, just the top part, the shifting mechanism needs to be repaired, so it would be cheaper to repair than rebuilding the whole transmision.still, im guessing about 300-500$ depending where you live.

A little transmision hesatation.

Bear in mind that for the transmission to work properly, the engine needs to be running at optimum specs. If the engine is even just a tiny bit off these, the transmission will not respond properly. For instance, a partially clogged air filter will cause these symptoms.A project such as what you're wanting to do with modifying your car Will set you back about 3000 dollars and Will affect your gas mileage, to the point that it is economically not feasible..accordianman
