Consider a used trans from the bone yard
or a rebuilt one.
An independent auto shop is likely to give you a fair price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Drain al the fluid out and go to the dealer or call to find out what suitable substitute can be used usually dextron/mercron transmission fluid but call to confirm. You must now add fluid and run the car in reverse,drive for about ten minutes, drain the fluid and repeat this procedure one more time, you must purge all the fluid out to ensure you have no more incorrect fluid left in trans.

SOURCE: Replacing transmission fluid in standard

The manual transmission in the Ford Escort uses transmission fluid, it is checked and filled in the same hole. That hole is where the speedometer cable is hooked up to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable, set aside, then remove the locking bolt that holds the speedometer drive unit in place. Pull up on the drive unit and it will come out, look on the side of the drive unit and you will see the level indicator line for full and add. Fill as needed and reinstall the drive unit and cable. Hope this helps, let me know.

Gear stick getting tight while driving short distances. Gears first to fourth has to be forced in, because the gear stick feels tight. Only happens on short run while using gears more often.

I assume this is a standard transmission. You didn't mention how old the car is, but if it has had the transmission fluid replaced, they may have put in too heavy a fluid, which is not allowing the synchronizers to function properly until the fluid is warmed. Check that the gearbox is properly serviced and that it has the correct viscosity fluid.
When I had my manual gearbox fluid replaced three years ago, they put in the standard 75W90 gear oil, but the manufacturer specifications call for a much lighter fluid. My shifting was very tight, especially in cold weather, so I drained it and added the recommended lubricant. MUCH better!

2000 Sentra with automatic transmission. Drive every day the car is fine. If the car sits over the weekend the transmission won't shift out of first gear. I tried manually shifting didn't work

First, check the level and condition of your transmission fluid.
Have you had a standard transmission service performed in the past 50,000 miles? If not, DO IT NOW before the transmission fails completely.
The transmission service should include ALL NEW FLUID, NEW FILTER, and NEW PAN GASKET.

VW 1996 Transporter T5 Shifting problems hard shifting when cold but as it warms up it shifts better.

Your fluid is either old or the wrong kind for your transmission. Changing your manual transmission fluid with a higher quality fluid should definitely reduce the difficulty of cold fluid/cold weather shifting. First go to the parts store and find out exactly what kind of fluid your transmission takes. Most manual transmission use gear oil. I recommend using something like Red Line, AMSOIL, or Royal Purple if available. A synthetic will make it even easier to shift. Always check with the manufacturer if you are unsure. I try to stick with the manufacturers recommendations because typically they know what works best with what they've engineered...but sometimes after market fluids can't be outperformed.

No power on hills or flat.revs up high rpm before shifting.errattic shifting

First check the level of fluid in your transmission, if its an automatic , there will be a dipstick on top of transmission and there is a line on dipstick when its warm running usually in neutral.( will say on dipstick if you run vehicle in neutral or in park), if car is a standard, theres a plug on side of trans. usually have to do this under vehicle. pull plug with car level and put finger in hole and if you cant feel fluid on finger its low. also in automatics if fluid is dark and not clear or bright red and stinks (with a burnt smell ) its usually means you have transmission problems. if fluid is low you have a leak and if went to long low on fluid chances are transmission is bad.

!992 nissan stanza standard trans fluid

If your referring to the manual transmission where you do the shifting. Your going to be using gear lube, not to be confused with transmission fluid. Which is red in color, they are not interchangeable transmission fluid is only for automatic transmissions. Gear lube is much heavier in weight, you want to get a gear lube 80-90 weight this lube is perferred for your vehicle

I have a 95 Mustang GT when it shits gears it's smooth but after it shifts it shudders a little like when a standard is put in a higher gear than needed. it has 124,000 miles on it I've had it for a year I...

A fluid flush is a good idea , and while your having that done check the transmission mount and motor mounts are in good shape and not broken. When filling the fluid back up I would add 1 qt of Tans X fluid it helps with shifting and older transmissions. Shuddering is a sign of a worn front pump or torque converter but you may be fine after the fluid change. Good luck and hope this helps.

if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem
