This stuff works GREAT! You can buy it at any local auto part store for about $12. I added it to my 2001 Sonata that was shifting had from 3 to 4 (on the highway). I copied this info from there website. Google it and you'll find tons of reviews, all of which are good.

What Is Lucas Transmission Fix?

Lucas Transmission Fix is a thermal stable blend of petroleum extracted additives. It contains no solvents or anything else that would be harmful to an automatic transmission. It contains a seal conditioner to help stop leaks around seals. It contains a polymetric film which is designed to stop worn bands from slipping. It allows the the transmission fluid to run cooler and controls foaming. It mixes with all automatic transmission fluids. It also contains lubricity agents for smooth, precise shifting. Lucas transmission fix extends existing transmission fluid life up to 3x.

What can Lucas Transmission Fix do for my vehicle?

  • Stops automatic transmission slip
  • Cleans and lubricates sticking valves for smoother shifting
  • Stops leakage around seals
  • Extends fluid life up to 3x
  • Extends the life of your transmission substantially
  • Protects your transmission under all severe service applications

How much Lucas Transmission Fix do I need?

One 24 ounce bottle is all you need. Lucas Transmission Fix will not fix a mechanically unsound transmission. If you have slipping and/or shifting issues this product will help.

    Also, remember that this is an additive. Before adding Lucas to your transmission, check your training fluid is at the proper level. Make sure your engine/transmission are warm (let he car run for 5-10 minutes) then check your fluids. If your low, add the proper amount of transmission fluid first. When it is full, top it off with 1 bottle of transmission fix. Drive is for a day, and if it is still shifting hard, you can add another bottle. Hope this helps :)

What does this shifting means..3,2,1 on automatic transmission range rover 2.5. Can you still shift the gear from D to 3 while the car is in motion...?


Yes, you can shift while the car is in motion. It works in a similar manner as a manual transmission, except that there is no clutch. Your car has 4 gears + overdrive. 1, 2, 3, 4=D, 5= Overdrive. So if you're on the highway and you shift into 3rd, you're down-shifting twice (from 5th to 3rd). The car will downshift itself if you hit the gas hard enough though! So, yes, you can shift from D to 3 while the car is in motion. No problem. Alex

I have a 1996 Jimmy 4x4 vortex engine, the tranny will shift from overdrive to a lower gear all by itself while going down the highway causing the rpms to go up over 3000. I pull over and shut the engine...


Hello,

A couple of things come to mind that can cause the issue you are having;

1. Make sure your transmission fluid level isn't low.

2. If your transmission fluid hasn't been changed in a long time, you could have some deposits
built up in the valve body, or the screening could be partially clogged.

3. You may have a faulty shift solenoid/shift motor.

Number 3 is most likely your problem.

I hope this helps you.

2002 Ford Explorer 5R55W transmission had intermediate band and servo piston replaced. Shifted OK for 1-2 months, then developed 2-3 shift flare. Servo bores then rebushed. Helped, but still has...


Band adjustment is very sensitive on these units, I set both adjustments at one turn. This is a 4 speed trans that has been converted to a 5 speed by turning on the od unit ( 1-2 shift ) in first gear.the 2-3 shift is busy because the od band is coming off causing the od unit to transfer back to 1:1 and the intermediate band is coming on . I have found that if the overdrive band is to loose it will release to fast causing a flare on the 2-3 shift bot not really affecting the 4-5 (overdrive) shift. So break both band adjustments loose and tighten the adjustment screw down and back off 1 turn the tighten jam nuts. Also the fluid level should be checked with the transmission warm ( 100 f , not hot, not cold) and the fluid should stream out of the check tube. Transgo makes a really nice vb kit that i use that will help these symptoms.

Transmission chatters when shifting into drive and also overdrive,what causes this


Check the fluid level. Also may be a clogged transmissiom filter, or the filter isn't seated correctly in the pan. I have had many of this type of problem come into the shop after having the fluid flushed on that type of Ford transmission. good luck.

TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT


You need to do a full service of the tranny. You need a filter change,and a fell flush of the tranny. Make sure you are using the right tranny fluid for it as well.

Hard shift and blinking overdrive


The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.
