Motor mounts- so the engine won't vibrate so bad at high speed; Front brakes pad? you can check by yourself, or asked them to show you how much pad left. For brake rotors, you can just re-surface it (about $30 each); Transmission fluid - you can just drain and fill (about $40).

Is small transmission plan leakage a serious problem? Also what is a resasonable charge for front brakes and rear brakes. I was quoted $745 for front brakes and rotors, and $691 or rear brake pads and


Midas is a rip off artist and have been investigated and fined many times in my state for fraud mostly to do with brakes. The dealer can do the job cheaper than that by $100's and use better parts. A small transmission fluid leak is not a real problem unless you hate driveway oil stains like I do.

What does that mean when my 1993 buick century jerks.. when i stop at a light then go it jerks


Your transmission is most likely slipping, you can get anti slip fluid at your local parts store, be sure not to overfill, you may be low on transmission fluid check the level. If this does'nt help there could be significant damage to the transmission. Motor mounts can have the same affect you can have your local mechanic inspect them. Usually a mechanic will check the motor mounts for little or no charge.

1995 Saturn automatic trans. shifting hard enough to brake motor mounts. Any suggestions for fixing


you may need to change the modulator valve on transmission and also check the modulator valve to be sure it's getting the proper vacum to it. the modulator valve controls shifting in the transmission. also suggest lucas transmission treatment be added to transmission fluid, it frees up stuck valves in transmission. hope this helps!!!

I have a 2001 vw passat and my mechanic checked it and said i needed motor mounts and brakes. would that stop the car from pulling because i need motor mounts?


The brakes are the cause of the pulling isue. So get that fixed first. It's caused by uneven wear- one side grabbing better than the other. Find out if it's in the front or rear and replace both calipers (front or rear). Always repalce brakes in a set (front/rear).

The motor mounts were probably just noticed by the mechanic. After 8/9 years the mounts get a bit of play in them and you would feel a thump when accelerating, shifting.... If they were really bad i think that would cause a slight pull, but that would be in an extreme case

Transmission noise


There are no special tools to change the fluid. You have to make sure when you pull the filter off that the rubber seal comes out with it where it goes up into the trans. case. If not, you have to take a ice pick or something similar and pull that seal out. Put your new filter in, change the fluid. I would recommend putting a conditioner like Lucas trans. additive. Also, the clunking noise - you should check your axles and front motor mounts. Hope this helps. Phil

CHANGING THE FLUID


2000 Chev Malibu 3.1 L checking the transmission oil level is a must since there is no dipstick to check the oil level with. The MOTOR oil is hot to change the oil in the motor. Driving the car up on ramps alters the level a bit as does the trans fluid at 200 degrees instead of the recommended 100 degrees. Let the car idle while you slide cardboard, newspaper, a flex socket wrench with a deep 7/16 inch six point socket. Set both the Park at the transmission gear selector and the parking brake, and put blocks behind and in front of the rear tires before you climb underneath the car. Cars roll off of jacks, ramps and whatever enables mechanics to get underneath. Before changing the motor oil while the engine is at a slow idle, using a six point 7/16 wrench turn the plug on the passenger side of the transmission counter clockwise looking down at the top of the bolt/inspection plug. If oil runs out put the plug right back in. If not add about four ounces at a time.
To add fluid, remove the red add fluid cap is on top of the chain/side cover which is underneath the exhaust crossover in front of the air valve. I used a turkey baster with the bulb removed and used a funnel into the baster which I placed into the add fluid hole after removing the red add fluid cap. While it is a better to have one person adding fluid while the other is underneath yelling stop when the fluid starts to run out of the inspection hole, I added 4 oz at a time and may have a slightly overfilled transmission. Although the car is not level, if you have fluid at normal operation temperature, the expansion of the fluid will compensate for the overfill due to the rear of the car being lower than the front.
After removing the motor oil and filter, spray some engine degreaser on the side of the motor and transmission to remove dirt and to make finding future leaks and pinpoint their location.
If you do not have a leak and are not losing transmission fluid the time to check the fluid level adds less than five minutes to your oil change. If you have to remove the fill plug and add fluid after finding or buying Dextron III transmission oil, you may add 15 - 30 minutes to the oil change.
The exhaust crossover pipe is several hundred degrees even at idle. A bright flashlight is helpful to find leaks when lying on the ground underneath the car and oil pans.
