You need to remove the transmission , and have it rebuilt

The Brown Fluid---indicates that it hasn't been changed in years,and now the trans is burnt up

When you change fluid on an already burnt unit,they stop altogether or slip worse

Transmission


At idle and the vehicle in nuetral check your transmission fluid level. If it is low your will need to add ford only transmission fluid which will come in a variety of manufactures. Don't use the multi vehicle fluid. You will then need to see where it is leaking from. If the fluid level is good look at the color of the fluid on the stick. if it is brown that means it is burnt and probably need a transmission.

THERE IS BROWN SLUDGE IN RADIATOR AND SUV OVERHEATING WHAT CAN BE DONE?


It depends on what is causing the brown sludge. More information is needed to make an asessment and prescribe a solution. Brown sludge can be caused by engine oil or transmission fluid mixing with the engine coolant, or it can be caused by severe corrosion in the cooling system due to lack of proper cooling system maintenance.
The engine oil cause will most likely require head gasket replacement.
The transmission fluid cause will require radiator replacement.
The severe corrosion cause will most likely require a complete cooling system overhaul to properly correct it.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

Slipping transmission.


The friction plates maybe well worn and need replaced. Torque converter may be failing. Automatic transmissions can and will wear out in time. 14 years is alot for any vehicle.
