Hi, Honda does not recommend fluid changes endless you " drive on dusty roads, drive on rough roads, repeated short trips, tow a trailor" I still recommend it for my customers during their 100k maintenance. If you do have this service done you should not be charged as much as a normal transmission service due to the fact nothing has to be removed there is no filter and just two drain plugs to remove. I hope this helps, happy motoring.

SOURCE: How to add Auto Trans fluid to 1999 VW Beetle & what kind of fluid

Been there tried that. The unit is more or less sealed. You will need to go to a VW dealer to have the fluid checked and added, if required. Be very careful, there's an entry port on the top of the transmission that some cables/wires go through. If you break this seal there is no simple fix. It costs about $700 to have it replaced by the dealer.

SOURCE: The transmission is slow to

As long as it's not slipping a trans. fluid flush and filter change might not be a bad idea. Your vehicle shifting hard between 1st-2nd could be an indication of a shift solenoid going bad. A local transmission shop can test your transmission to determine the problem. you can check the trans dipstick to check the fluid to see if it is at the correct level for 1, and also to smell it if it has a burnt smell. any metal shavings, or has an odd color those are signs of trouble

When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen


When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen? =============================================
1. Not enough information and you have not identified the vehicle either.


2. Coolant cannot leak to the PS system. They are entirely separate systems and unconnected.

3. If you have an auto transmission then in some models there is a section of the radiator used for cooling the auto transmission hydraulic fluid . IF there is a breach in the radiator between the 2 sections then coolant can flow into the auto trans fluid and vice versa. If you find there is pink hydraulic fluid in the coolant when draining the radiator then it will be auto transmission fluid.

In that event you will need to replace the radiator and to have the auto trans serviced now or the transmission will fail if the hydraulic fluid has been contaminated.

What oil do i use for my steering box


If this is a power steering unit, what ever the manufacturer deems correct, in most cases auto trans fluid? If the existing fluid is a nice cherry red color, then auto trans fluid will be ok.
Any other color refer to the manufacturers recommendation.
If it is a manual steering box (unlikely) EP90 is usually correct. Try a search on the net or ring your friendly Nissan service place.

'99 mercury Sable with auto transmission: Hesitates a few seconds when shifting from Park to Drive. Seems to shift OK when driving.


Several things to do about this. Look in your Radiator reservoir for a oily sheen and do the same thing for the Radiator if it has a cap and is not sealed. Have the Trans fluid changed and the Trans filter serviced. If possible get a sample of the Trans fluid.

If both the fluids look normal you only need fresh Trans fluid and the Trans filter serviced. Some filters are replaceable and some are just screens which need periodic cleaning. If the fluids do not look good then the Radiator may be leaking into the Trans fluid via the cooling lines. The delay may be due contamination corroding the first of many parts.

The gear engagement is dependent on engine RPM. If, for some reason your motor is idling slower at Startup, the initial gear engagement will be delayed. You could also be down on fluid, which would mean another problem.

The chances of cross contamination are very slim, but it is mentioned because your shifting can be affected in small ways at first, then big costly ways. The self-diagnostics in your car does not cover this problem.

Take the time to check the reputation of the shop you deal with for this simple service.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK

What is the trans fluid service interval?


Hi,

This is the most overlooked service of vehicles today.

Due to the advanced technology in electronic transmissions, it is now more important than ever, to regularly change the trans fluid. Most auto transmission failures are a result of bad fluid or incorrect levels.

Whilst most manufacturers suggest fluid changes around 60 - 80,000miles, if you intend to keep the vehicle for a few years, then I strongly reccommend following the new standard of 30,000mile intervals.

This will involve flushing the transmission & cooler tank (with clean trans fluid), changing the trans oil filter and refilling with new fluid to the CORRECT level.

Use ONLY manufacturer's specified transmission fluid (not all fluids have the same properties).

NEVER overfill the transmission case.

Modern day electronic transmissions rely on good oil pressure to perform well. Regular trans oil changes will ensure this, as well as avoiding costly transmission repairs.

Cheers,

1998 pontiac transport 3.4 auto leaking trans fluid


It sounds like the Transmission line has a leak. Check the transmission line from the transmission to the radiator. You have two steel lines which runs to and from the transmission to the transmission cooler in the radiator. The line could be corroded and may need to be replaced, good luck and service the transmission too. The transmission on the transport are know to have problems when ran low on fluid or dirty transmission filter.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Check auto trans fluid level in 2008 Yaris


I don't know how many models this affects, but I had heard that some manufacturers are no longer putting in a dipstick to check automatic transmission fluid. For example, check the "Tips and Warnings" box (lower center of page) at this web site. Your car may be one of those affected. You can check with a Toyota dealer to be sure.
