On a parked level surface, warm up the motor to operating condition; while the engine is running, check the transmission fluid level by removing its dipstick.
Check your owner's manual if you're unsure how to check your vehicle's transmission fluid levels.
The color of the transmission fluid should be red and have no burnt odor to it. Should there be any discoloration or burnt odor, the transmission will need repairing by a trained ASE certified transmission specialist.
If it is only a matter of adding transmission fluid (see recommended fluid type in your owner's manual), keep the levels between the minimum and maximum levels- please do not overfill.
I would also check the area where the car is parked overnight for staining or puddles from a leaky transmission.
If the transmission is still experiencing shifting problems, there could be a problem with the vacuum modulator or something electrical with the sensors in the transmission or with the bands and clutches; again, a qualified mechanic will have to use computerized diagnostic tests to pinpoint the problem.

Oil leak seem to come from starter. What can it be - main bearing oil seal?


Oil leaking around a starter is usually one of three possible things.
If it is motor oil, then suspect the rear main seal.
It it is auto trans fluid, it could be from the transmission front seal or the torque converter
If you have a manual transmission, it could be clutch fluid leaking from the slave cylinder, or a leaky front seal from the transmission.

1994 Accord Lx leaking from somewhere in the back by the wheels. It doesnt smell like gas or oil.


Fluid by the back wheels could be an indication of a brake fluid leak. Check the reservoir on the master cylinder for brake fluid level. If it's low, you've identified that you have a leaky brake line and should replace it immediately. If the fluid is full, it's possible that you've a transmission fluid leak that traveled along the undercarriage and is dripping by the back wheels.

For the fastest indication of what the fluid is, check all the fluids, power steering, auto transmission (if equipt) clutch if it's a manual transmission etc

1992 Buick Regal transmission fluid getting into engine.... how is this possible? Notice it because oil level keeps increasing without adding oil, oil consistency changes and smoke out of tail pipe.......


Your radiator is connected to the transmisiom to cool the transmission. the tank in the radiator has ruptured and transferring fluid to where it should not be. solution replace radiator. This will transfer trans fluid to cooling system and vice versa. I can not see the trans oil ending up in the engine oil sump for any reason?

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.

Clutch pedal went too floor pulled back up now solid and not lettin engage gears


It is probably a hydraulic clutch. Check the fluid. From your description, I am understanding that the pedal feels normal but you are unable to put the car in gear when you push the pedal down. You probably have a leaky slave cylinder on the transmission, but it is possible to have a leaky master cylinder (on the firewall, aligned with the clutch pedal). Check your fluid, if it's empty fill it and bleed the system. You probably have a really big air bubble in your clutches hydraulic system. Usually you can get away with not replacing the leaking part for a bit, just keep an eye on your fluid, and save your pennies! Good luck!!!

When I first start my 1995 Mazda Protege, it will not go into gear unless you let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes or longer


If you have an automatic transmission, check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid level is low, the transmission will not engage.

If you have a manual transmission, check the clutch fluid level. Look for a leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder.
