Question about Lexus ES 300
Posted by Anonymous on
Depending on the amount of damage done driving it low on fluid you may be able to salvage more use out of it. The first thing you gotta do is change the filter and gasket inside the transmission pan. Check the owners manual and be sure to replace it with the correct type and amount of automatic transmission fluid. It might even help to get your local mechanic or parts store to recommend the best transmission additive available. After and only after you've done all this. You wait until low traffic time and drive it in the immediate area until such time as you can tell that it's shifting and not slipping at all. If it has "any" slip it will only continue to get worse. Don't let anyone sell you some 6 buck a quart fluid for the change unless that's the only one the manufacturer recommends. Good luck. This repair, if you are mechanically inclined and have a suitable jack to safely get under the car to change the filter, shouldn't be bank breaking. You may have to go to your local mechanic. But even a hundred or so is better than the pocket emptying transmission overhaul.
