Although this is may not work depending on transmission wear and tear, you will need to do this if you plan to replace transmission any way. Replace the damaged hose. Next I would get a transmission filter kit. This is a simple kit that is sold at part stores and includes filter and gasket. You will need to buy transmission fluid and a gasket sealant. Jack up the vehicle, drain the transmission fluid by loosening the transmission pan, if you need help finding this check the gasket shape you purchased. The pan will most likely be stuck a little from the previous gasket sealant. Carefully pry it apart with a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, transmission fluid will go when pan is dropped, so, be careful in placement of pan and how much you loosen all bolts. when pan is dropped check for metal shavings inside. If you have none things are looking good. Remove filter most oftenly attached with phillips head screws. Check this filter for debris and metal. If you do not spot anything serious by now, replace using new filter. Ensure you have a clean surface for the new gasket after removal of old gasket. Once you have this done, add a thin layer of sealant to pan and place gasket on top of it. Apply another thin layer of sealant to the other side of gasket and reinstall to transmission using correct tightening sequence and torque. These bolts do not need to be overly tight. Most leaks happen from overtightening bolts to pan. Usually a lil over hand tight is fine, but, check with you parts store. Add fluids to proper level and then you will be able to test the transmission out. I know it sounds like alot, but, it cheaper than buying a new transmission if you don't have to.

Why does automatic shift hard when cold, then shifts OK after warm up?


There could be a number of factors contributing to a hard shift when cold. Year/make.model?? High mileage? Old fluid/filter in the tranny can cause lots of problems. If the fluid has never been serviced, start there and see if it gets any better

"Tranny not shifting properly. Dead battery recently. Could the tranny problem be electrical? Does a computer need a reboot? Audi A6"


Not likely related to the battery dying. Have your transmission oil replaced as a start, this fixes a lot of transmission issues. If that doesn't work, have it checked by a transmission shop, could be anything from a switch to a transmission rebuild.

I have a mazda mpv 2000 and something red colour is leaking from it. is anyone knows what it is and what should be done to fix the problem?


I didn't realize that that red fluid was coming from my 2000 MPV until the transmission burnt out in the middle of a four hour drive. I highly recommend checking the fluid level (top it up if it's low) and getting it to a mechanic. You may save yourself a couple thousand. My leak was at the front of the car, driver's side. Just a tiny little hole in dull silver tube...

Tranny radiator leak


If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.

99 Jag xj8l stopped shifting low gears, only goes in high gear.


You will need to have your tranny rebuilt or get a replacement. As a mechanic myslef, I have seen this a few times in the Jag XJ series. Those people eneded up having tranny replaced as well.
