The pump is located behind the torque convertor and requires removal of the transmission to replace. Big job!

2001 Isuzu Trooper 4wd automatic trans. It will shift ou of 1st at about 20 mph into 2nd then loses power, rpm's drop until it slows to about 10mph then down shifts back to 1st. Any ideas why?

Sounds to me that your transmission is put itself into what is call (Limp Mode). This happens when the transmission fluid in the trans hydraulic valve body located on the bottom and in the trans pan are not within the parameters of the transmission computer. You can remove the trans pan and gasket to check for metallic material in the bottom of the pan. There is normally a strong magnet in the pan catch the material so I can't move freely through the transmission itself. It only takes a very small piece of foreign material to stop the flow of the valve body fluid. I would first take it to somewhere that had a automotive diagnostic scan tool that can read transmission codes to see if there are any active codes. Next you can drop the transmission pan yourself and look for material in it. Basically do a visually inspection and service the transmission fluid, gasket, and filter. Remember, all a automatic transmission is a extremely complicated fluid pump. If its pumping trans fluid properly it's probably working just fine. Been when the trans fluid gets hot, scorched, and stops moving. It will not work. Hope this helps

I was changing the oil and i mistakingly drained the transmition fluid as well and now i cant locate where to replace the transmtion fluid

On the side of the transmission there should be a bolt or a hex head that you have to unscrew and the will allow you to pump the trans fluid into the transmission. You will need some type of a pump to add fluid, I would get a Haynes or Chilton manual to make sure that you add only the proper amount of fluid to your vehicle

I just want to know where is the power steering pump located? and what does it mean when the automatic transmission dipsticks says " (trans hot must be in cross hatch) "?,.. thanks.

The power steering pump is located in line with the rest of the belt driven units (alternator , water pump and AC compressor). It has a cap on it to check the fluid level... so should be easy to spot.
DO NOT reach into the belt area while the engine is running!!

The transmission fluid should be checked with the engine completely warmed up and running. The fluid should be within the parramiters of the cross hatching on the dip stick.
do not overfill!! too much trans fluid is as bad as not enough...

The transmission drain plug isn't obvious to me. Can you describe the size and location of it? (I actually see two small plugs in that area. Which one?)

Your vehicle may not have a trans drain plug. The pan drops if you have no plug.
Correct service is much better perfromed by a lube shop, with a t-tech style trans flush machine. Essentially, they pump in new fluid, (while engine running) and pump out the old, until the fluid is clean.
The reason that this is better is that you flush the torque converter, all passageways, oil cooling lines and the oil cooler.
Check your manual, the filter in the trans may also need changing. WAAAAAAY less expensive to service the trans, when compared to a fluid restriction which burns up the clutches.

2002 Chevy Malibu with a 3.1ltr enging and a 4 speed automatic trans. The trans has a whinning sound when driving. It's not slipping and shifts correctly. It just has a whinning sound. What could the...

The most common whining noise from that tranny is the transmission pump. Sometimes they have a high pitch whine noise yet nothing wrong its normal. Sometimes its an indication of the pump being over-worked due to a dirty filter or fluid low. Turn engine on and check tranny fluid level. If low add to cold mark on dipstick, check for leaks under vehicle. If fluid appears very black or burnt smell, recommend flushing fluid and replacing filter (located inside tranny pan) yours will be a 4L60E type tranny.

The fluid from my transmission is mixing with radiator fluid. I was told that the core is burnt out in my radiator, and all that was needed to be done is to replace the old radiator with a new one and...

What happened is the tube that goes thru the radiator sprung a leak and coolant is getting in the trans and visa-vera so the answer that you got is 100% correct. But you have to change trans fluid and coolant and do NOT drive or you will be buying a new trans. Thanks

Where do i put the transmition fluid in a 1991 150 pickup?

If it is a manual transmission their is a nut on the bottom of the transmission you may have to get a special pump you can get at the auto parts store that pretty cheap and pump the trans fluid into the trans by taking out the bolt and putting the hose in the hole and pumping the plastic pump to supply the trans with fluid.

Where is the trans dipstick for a 05 ford 500 AWD Limited Edition

For the 6 speed auto trans the dipstick is located behind the radiator support, to the left of the air cleaner box. The dipstick is a round yellow plastic towards the bottom of the transmission. The exhaust manifold is slightly above it, so be careful not to burn yourself.

I have trans fluid out of trans dust shield. Replaced front seal

There is a brass bushing in the trans pump that could be worn. Verify easy things first like trans fluid temp and proper flow to the cooler. Restrictions and heat will cause that front pump seal to leak again.
