I have a 1999 Pontiac sunfire and when shifting it's like clutch slipping for a minute to catch up to speed. Clutch 1 year old. Could it be speed sensor? What could it be?

I see that the clutch is new however If the trani or the engine has a Seal leak, your clutch could have oil on it.
Any oil dripping at the Bellhousing?

1992 buick century 3.3 liter fwd. transaxle wont shift from 2nd. to 3rd. acting like it's going into neutral.When fluid and filter were changed the sponge part of filter was detierated and not found in...

you want to flush out the trani most likly is the filter ran through the trani the check balls inthe shift siloniods are clogged with filter now, but if you have low/1 and reverse the other possibility is that you lost a clutch band inthe trani, that would require a new trani.

What is the recommended transmission service schedule.

You did not indicate if it is an automatic or manual trani..

A automatic trani should be serviced around every 30k miles..

A manual trani should be done every 80k miles or so..

have a great day !

Where to put gear box fluid in a ford mondeo 2002 automatic it takes a long time to change gear

The automatic transmission fluid goes in the same place where the Trani dipstick is.. It is called the filler tube.. Just use a funnel..

When checking the fluid - have the engine running in park..
Trani fluid is measured in pints not quarts on the dipstick..

The shifting problem might not be from low Trani fluid.. It could be caused by other things..

IF the fluid is low - that could cause the trani to slip and cause internal damage..

Good luck..

My 1995 grand cherokee is leaking transmission fluid badly.I have an automatic transmission. I need help please!

well it depends on where it is leaking from if it is leaking from the pan in the seal area replace the seal and you might as well change the trani fluid and filter just to be on the safe side. If you cant find where it is leaking get a can of Gunk engine cleaner and clean the trani off nice and good the look for fresh leaks after driving a bit. If it looks like its a cracked case then you might as well just drop it and replace it. But the first thing is to pin point where it is leaking from. It could also be leaking from the trani fluid cooling lines.

1993 F250 7.3 liter nonturbo automatic. have a noise in trani like the flex plate is broken. removed trani flexplate is fine. could the problem be the torque converter ? started the enine with the trani...

possably a baring inside your gear box, if you know how 2 change a gearbox, good stuff, but first take it to a garage to see if they can pick up on it, before you do any work

On 3rd transmission3rd and overdrive keep blowing out

It doesn't make any sence. You are on your third trani and all of them have failed with the same exact symptoms. Is the torque converter the same? And when the first trani was removed did you have metal in it? If so, you may have contaminates inside the trani cooler and it is either clogged and there is little or no flow or is sending the **** that is inside it into your replacement trani. The trani is a 4L60e, right?
