My tranmission was shifting hard and trying to run hot so i changed filter and fluid.now its not doin that it slipping and stalls at low rpm's.is that my torque converter or sensors bad?


You may need the transmission rebuilt, once it starts to slip that is the end in mist cases. Have a local transmission repair shop confirm my guess on this

Tranmission slipping. Think I have a leak underneath the motor. What could it be and should I chech it or have it looked at?


A leak under the motor could be anything. Is it motor oil, transmission fluid, coolant??? Anything can leak and it can start from the top. It will all end up under the motor.

But if you feel the transmission is slipping then its best to have it checked. A person cannot diagnose many things, including a slipping transmission, or the web. If you let it go though it could leave you stranded at any time.

If the trans fluid smells burnt, brown, many miles on the transmission and/or many miles between transmission services (or never serviced) then most its in need of repairs. With a slipping transmission, a fluid and filter change is not going to fix it. Having clean fluid in there may cause it to slip more and leave you stranded sooner.

My 2002 jeep tranmission over temp comes on and off while on my way from work just had a oil change about 1 month ago and had tranmission flush in september what dose this mean


Having once owned a trans repair shop,
I would prefer you not flush the system

Due to the vehicles age ,and not knowing
if the fluid was changed every 30,000 miles

My Past Professional Opinion tells me your
trans is most likely slipping. ,thus over heating

You could check the fluid level but that won't do
much.

Your most likely are close to a rebuild situation

Figure about $1700.00

I have a 2004 Santa Fe with 39000 miles when can I aspect the driving or timing belt to go out


The timing belts must be replaced every 5 years or 50k miles, whatever comes first. The other belts whenever they give signs of slipping, no fixed date.

Is there any thing othert than chainging tranmission fluid reguarly to help transmission life on 1997 chysler concorde


if you never changed the trans fluid yet, don't
the shavings that are worn mixed with the trans fluid must be retained in your trans to keep the trans shifting smoothly
I have seen plenty of people changing there trans fluid for the first time with 50,000 miles then the trans will slip

Tranmission seems to come out of gear at various speeds.


Make sure you have the right transmission fluid chrysler has a special type of trasmission fluid I believe it ATF+4. change the fluid and filter and the add three quarts of ATF+4 and one quart of "Lucas transmission slip. This should fix the problems. Mike

Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when


Several things could be causing your problem:
  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles

My mechanic reccomends a tranmission flush?


USUALLY YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE TRANY FLUID EVERY 40,000 MILES. MORE OFTEN IF YOU LIVE IN A HOT AREA LIKE PHOENIX ARIZONA. YOU COULD HAVE PROBLEMS IF YOU CHANGE THE FLUID NOW. IT IS KIND OF A GAMBLE. IF YOU HAVEN'T DRIVEN YOUR CAR HARD YOU MORE THAN LIKELY WILL BE FINE. A GOOD INDICATOR OF THE OVERALL CONDITION IS TO CHECK THE FLUID AND DETERMINE HOW BURNED THE FLUID HAS BECOME. GOOD LUCK.
