A backyard mechanic gave my 2001 outback an old change. However he drained the tranny instead, then when replacing the tranny fluid he wrongly put over 3 quarts into the transfer case on the passenger side. How hard to drain transfer case? any suggestions?

To drain the transfer case, you will need to **** out the fluid some, you can get a hand held pump at your local auto store. Then you will need to make sure that you add the proper transfer case fluid, then drain it again, then add the proper amount. Good luck with this, and my suggestion is to make sure that you hire on a mechanic that is certified, Lic, and bonded, or take it to a shop.

I have a 2001 audi a4.. while driving all my dash gear symbols keep flashing.. also from when put in drive it takes a little to engage and pull of... any ideas pls


First thought: you are low on tranny fluid. There is no dip stick. Only way is:
a) cool car (tranny fluid cold)
b) take drain plug out
c) get fluid hand pump (Autozone)
d) feed fill tube into drain hole
e) pump tranny fluid (check for your car) in until it starts running out.

Officially, tranny fluid should be 43 deg C as shown with VAGcom diagnostic. But I have good results with just room temp car (just not more).

As always: best to find someone with VAGcom (VCDS) and have him run a full diagnostic scan. It will tell you more regarding your problem.

Water in tranny drain fluid and put in new,autozone gave me wrong fliud drain again but now it jerks bad in gears?


mixing fluids can cause sludge build up, the jetking if from two problems 1) lack of lubrication due to sludge 2) lack of pressure due to a clogged filter. you need to flush the fluid from the transmission with new clean fluid and repace the filter on the tranmission, it should be located in the trransmission pan near the return line from the radiator.

How do I drain transmission fluid (2000 sable ls(dohc))?


On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?

How to change transmission fluid and filter in a 2001 kia sportage, my car sounds as if it is not switching gears, the other day i was sitting in park and the rpms jumped up to like 2 and then it was quiet...


the is a drain plug on bottom of tranny. Remove all tranny fluid. Then remove bolts on the tranny pan, remove pan. Remove couple filter bolts and change filter. Replace new gasket and tranny pan. Fill up tranny with 8 quarts or whatever your user manual says with correct fluid.

My 2000 subaru outback 4 cylender car slips when put into drive, I'm not sure if I filled the correct location with the new fluid, are there separate fill locations for the front diff and tranny??


yes there are ,transmission fluid dipstick is on drivers side near starter,diff is on passenger side. if you just drained the pan the trans should take about 4 quarts of fluid,diff will take just about 1 quart of 80-90 w

Transmission fluid flushing


In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

PUT ABOUT HALF OLD OIL I HAD STORED IN TRANNY CONTAINER IN TRANNY


Improper fluids in a automatic transmission can cause severe results.
Drain the transmission fluid and change the filter.
If the car was running at the time you put engine oil in the transmission, I would also flush or drain the torque converter.
Replace with the proper amount and type of fluid.

Want to know what the 75,000 mile service is on a 2001 Subaru Outback.


i would have your oil filter changed with oil filter, air filter, replace spark plugs, have all your fluids checked( front and rear diff, tranny fluid, coolant, ) normally if you go to a shop they will have package systems with all or most of these items. if i were you i'd call around and see which shop around you has the best deals
