The band adjustment on a 2008 model are done electronically and only automatics have bands for adjusting, but if it is an automatic and they are in need of manual adjustments then yes you will need to drain the fluid to be able to remove the pan and get to the adjusters.

What causes a transmision to slip in low gears

Your transaxle needs to be rebuilt

Bands are adjusted when a unit is built
& do not wear enough to need adjustment

Your transaxle has the hightest failure rate of any
I know of, none worse,there may be some others I
have no experience with or problems I don't know of

I would part with it & not make an expensive repairs on
that perticular vehicle or any van type transaxle

All transmissions fail whenever the fluid is not changed
every 3 years & in your case your unknowingly doomed
out the gate

I would suggest you go to a trans shop & ask a lot of questions
before every buying any vehicle, even a new one,that is what I do
& I used to own a trans shop & still recommend it.

I have 1981 Mb 300sd,when I start moving uphill direction the transmision feel like slip out.Does the tranmision needs to be rebuilt?

Look at the transmission fluid on a level surface as the vehicle is running . Is the level correct? Now how about the color is it? Is it blackish ? Low level transmission fluid will not allow the vehicle to go in gears correctly. It will engage hard. Now the color dark is the clutch fiber the transmission is out of adjustment and will operate out of range. Now if it slip out going up a hill there is a great demand on the transmission . The band which is a clutch fiber must hold the drum in order to transfer power if it can't the transmission slips and a overhaul will be in order. Just dont overlook the probability,and the simple solution and yes you will definetly need to rebuild the transmission

How do i put in transmission oil 2004 volkswagen passat

There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u will find on older american cars.

The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.

The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.

1998 dodge ram 1500 2wd 5.9 eng. how to change

just drop the transmission pan to drain it and the filter is right there in the valve body,DON'T mess the band adjustment,they are only to stop the planetary gears so you can go into reverse,there is no such thing as adjusting bands! that went out with the fifties!

I have a eclipse 96 I tried to repair the

did you change fluid and filter this is just as important as an engine oil change. also a automatic transmission has things called bands that change the gears and hold overdrive in they also need adjusting every 30,000 miles. if not they will cause your transm,ission to slip. and burn up atf fluid.

How do i check my transmission fluid? for a 2000

Set the parking brake and put a block on at least one wheel. Pop the hood and find the Transmission dipstick. Start the engine and shift the gear shift into neutral. Pull the dipstick, wipe it with a clean rag, put it back in, pull it out and read it.

How to overhaul the transmision for the 1993 mazda astina

I assume you are talking about an automatic transmission?

This is probably a job you want to have done by a professional. You might just need to have the bands adjusted to the correct torque.

You could try changing the transmission fluid, and filter.

there should be two identical looking bolt heads or plugs that you can put a 3/8 extension into. with style lower one of the two is the drain plug and the higher one is the fill port. hope this helps you.
