My transmission fluid in my 06 Grand Prix gxp got to 220 is that bad


That's high, but not terribly so. Transmissions typically run about 180, but on my Silverado the trans temp gauge doesn't show red until 250. Smell the trans fluid, if it doesn't smell burned, it should be ok. If unsure, change the fluid. I don't recommend a power flush, just drain the pan, change filter, measure what was in the pan, add that amount of new fluid and of course, correct why it got that hot in the first place.

2005 ford taros hard shift into 3rd gear.Transmission light is on. I Disconnected battery to reset the computer. That worked only once for a very short time.


Hi. Before you do anything, check the transmission fluid level with engine running and in park. If the fluid is at the right level, there are 2 levels, a cold and a hot level. If the fluid is low then simply add fluid to correct level and check for leaks in hoses,transmission pan, external oil cooler if installed and axel seals. Normally fluid levels will not go down except if there is a leak somewhere. If the fluid smells burned, then you have most likely will need an overhaul as the tranmission has overheated due to high loads (pulling a trailer in hot temps, or simply because of age and the resultant excessive slippage of the friction plates.
However if the fluid level is good and fluid smells ok then gave the computer code read. Your problem could simply be a loose or corroded wire to or from the transmission causing erratic shift symtoms.
Good luck,
Gary

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

I have a 2001 F-350 with a 7.3 and automatic trans. The truck has 280,000 miles on it and the transmission is not wanting to shift when it gets hot. Is it still safe to change the fluid and filter? Or will...


No. It is still safe to change the transmission fluid and filter, in fact, it is recommended. Just make sure your fluid level is correct when you are done.

Tow/haul light comes on gauge shows HOT


Does the trans fluid have a burnt smell and is it brown or dark brown as opposed to a red wine color? If this is the case then you may have a service issue caused by a clogged trans filter which is what this sounds a great deal like and the sooner you get the truck to the dealer or your mechanic the better as the trans in these are not cheap to rebuild or replace.

2000 Mustang trans. problems. VSS, NSS, trans control solenoid?


If your engine is getting hot, check your radiator for transmission fluid; the radiator has a small heat exchanger that cools the transmission fluid it is located inside the radiator bottom; the transmission lines attach there; also, the leak into the radiator of transmission fluid can "starve" the transmission causing delay in shifting, slipping and, more throttle being needed to engage and, shift.

03 f-350 trans hot


I would begin by checking the transmission fluid level. If it's ok, then that means that your transmission has overheated. Have it checked for overheating damage by a professional transmission shop. If everything checks out ok have them add a secondary transmission cooler. This will allow the transmission to cool down faster under heavy hauling conditions. Hope this helps, good luck!
