I have a 2012 Rav4. I had my oil changed and I was told that my transmission fluid is black and smells burnt.I called Toyota I was told that my car's transmission never needed flushed.Is this true ?


It is a myth that trans mission oil never needs changing
All oils oxidise under extreme heat conditions ( and transmission oil reaches very hot temperatures) and bearings, bands and clutches do wear
again flushing is a general term incorrectly used
A transmission oil change generally removes the oil from the pan area but leaves 1/2 the torque converter with contaminated oil
That in turns re-contaminates the fresh oil
Flushing on the other hand is expensive as it require a considerable amount of new oil to do the job It is done with the engine running and fresh oil is drawn in as the old oil is pumped out
so you have to decide to have it changed or flushed as the difference can be in excess of $200.00 dollars BUT the results are also very different
Many manufacturers run sealed transmissions , for the sole purpose of preventing DIY people from putting in the wrong oil and so causing a problem in the transmission
remember that you most probably have a CV transmission
Constant velocity) which utilizers a drive belt between 2 pulleys and requires a special transmission oil as well
The transmission performs similar to the old automatic transmissions but is vastly different in internal construction
Normal period for a change ( depending on speed and operating conditions ) is 60,000miles so talk with an accredited specialist transmission shop to get an idea as to what is a good idea on oil changes

Oil in cooling system


Head or intake gasket leaking. Is the coolant milky? Or do you just see a little oil in the colant? If it's not milky i would not worry. If it's milky ,To buy you some time add some bars leak into the radiator. Then change the oil and antifreeze.

My Astra holden has 2 dipsticks one i know is for oil level the other just a /14 inch from the oil dipstick is my question , what is the second dipstick for??


Might you have an automatic transmission?
Automatic transmissions have their own dipstick.
I don't know about Aussies, but here in the states, transmission fluid has red die added to it to prevent your mixing them, and to tell you whether it is engine oil or transmission fluid that is leaking.
If you mix them by mistake, you must drain them and put in the correct fluid, or suffer ruining the engine or transmission, which ever one has the wrong fluid.
Your oil light should not be coming on. That is a different problem.
Oh, yes. There may be a dipstick on the power steering pump it you have power steering, but it should be really small. (short)

Need to change transmission fluid, PLEASE assist. is there a drain plug or does it need to be sucked out with high power equipment?


While some vehicles are equipped with a transmission drain plug, most are not. The ones that are not equipped require you to drop the transmission pan to drain the oil, which is a good idea anyway because there is a filter inside the pan which should be changed when you change the fluid. Look under your car and locate the transmission pan. If it has a plug it will usually be located on the back side of the pan. If it does not have a plug, the easiest way to drain the pan is to remove the screws from all but one side of the pan. When you have screws left in only one side, steadily loosen the remaining screws a few turns at a time allowing to pan to tilt slowly downward releasing the fluid steadily and avoiding a big mess. While you have the pan off, be sure to replace that transmission fluid filter and pan gasket. They usually come in a set. Hope this helps you out. Have a good day!

Consider if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil. Transmission oil or power steering oil would indicate a bad radiator. Engine oil could be a bad radiator also if the radiator includes an engine oil cooler ("extra cooling") but usually indicates an intake or head gasket leaking.

Leaking oil


Your car has several different types of oils or fluids (motor oil, transmission oil, power steering fluid/oil, brake fluid, and differential oil - if applicable). . Before you can determine how to fix your problem, you need to determine exactly what you problem is, meaning you need to figure out what fluid is leaking.

Good Luck!

I need to add some power steering fluid to the reservoir. I don't have any but I do have automatic transmission fluid. Can I use that?


Hi,
I would not recommend adding transmission fluid in your power steering pump.
Years ago one could get away with it.
If you do not have a Audi dealer near by,
Parts houses have a universal power steering fluid for sale.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.
