Nissan mistral 1996 auto. Had full oil change on engine and gearbox, now gearbox only stays in first gear


This may just be a low fluid level or wrong fluid , i doubt the wrong fluid would cause this condition so fast but make sure the fluid is full and if it is and all connections are on and nothing was knocked off then i would say the new fluid may have washed away build up or dirty is flowing in ****** and know something is the valve body is stuck,
The problem with some of these shop, mostly the quick lube shops is that a transmission should be flushed not drained and refilled, the problem with the drain and fill is that you never get all the old oil out. there is oil in the lines and cooler and in converter. what happens is the new oil detergents mix with the old oil and cause the drit in the oil to flow into valve body and pump and after time cause a problem, this happened so fast that i would check the level and make sure that all connections are on and nothing got knocked off. otherwise it sounds like you may need a rebuild on this transmission.how many miles on this car? Good day.

Just wanted to know how to change transmission oil.


Hello,

Before You change the transmission oil, You need to check if it is due for changing. To check the transmission oil. please follow the steps below:
  1. Open the hood and locate the transmission dipstick. It is in front of the engine on the left side, just behind the radiator cap.
  2. Pull the ring on top of the dipstick to remove it from its tube. Wipe it off with the paper towel and replace it. This will ensure an accurate reading.
  3. Remove the dipstick again an look at the markings at the tip. If the fluid on the stick is below the full line, add more transmission fluid.
  4. Repeat this procedure until the fluid reaches the correct level on the dipstick.

There are different types of engine therefore there are several ways to change their transmission fluid. Unless you got something in there via dipstick its really not necessary to ever change the ATF. It's a messy job because there's no drain plug to change the fluid, but You can do it yourself if you're so inclined. To change the fluid,

  1. You have to get under your vehicle and remove the pan from the bottom of the transmission.
  2. When you loosen the pan, fluid will start to dribble out in all directions so you need a fairly large catch pan. You should also know that removing the pan doesn't drain all of the old fluid out of the transmission. Approximately a third of the old fluid will still be in the torque converter. There's no drain plug on the converter so you're really only doing a partial fluid change. Even so, a partial fluid change is better than no fluid change at all.
  3. A typical fluid change will require anywhere from 3 to 6 quarts of ATF depending on the application, a new filter and a pan gasket (or RTV sealer) for the transmission pan. The pan must be thoroughly cleaned prior to reinstallation. This includes wiping all fluid residue from the inside of the pan and scraping all traces of the old gasket from the pan's sealing surface. Don't forget to clean the mounting flange on the transmission, too.
  4. When the new filter is installed, be sure it is mounted in the exact same position as the original and that any O-rings or other gaskets have been properly positioned prior to tightening the bolts. Then tighten the bolts to the manufacturer's recommended specs.
  5. When refilling the transmission with fresh fluid, be careful not to allow any dirt or debris to enter the dipstick tube. Using a long-neck funnel with a built-in screen is recommended.
  6. Do not overfill the transmission. Too much fluid can cause the fluid to foam, which in turn can lead to erratic shifting, oil starvation and transmission damage. Too much fluid may also force ATF to leak past the transmission seals.
  7. Add half a quart at a time until the dipstick shows full. The transmission really isn't full yet because the dipstick should be checked when the fluid is hot, and the engine is idling with the gear selector in Park. So start the engine, drive the vehicle around the block, then recheck the fluid level while the engine is idling and add fluid as needed until the dipstick reads full.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

HOW DO U CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID


with car running in park and warm remove the oil dip stick tube and check the fluid level remove the fluid with an old rag or a paper towel then stick it back in, pull out again and hold perpendicular to the ground so the fluid will not run up or down the stick, turn it so you can see the fluid level. if it is full your OK also look at the fluid, if it's brownish color and smells like burnt onions yo need to have the filter and fluid changed or you will damage the transmission. A transmission fluid and filter change costs about $150.00 average and also have them to add Lucas Transmission oil treatment so it will condition the bands clutch packs and seals, most cars need the fluid changed every 30,000 miles to make the transmission last the lifetime of the car. This is the most overlooked service on automobiles besides doing a routine tuneup.

Hard shifting


Are you sure that it is oil and not transmission fluid? The stains can look similar unless you actually get down and touch the fluid. If it is reddish in color then it is transmission fluid, which means you have a leak somewhere in the transmission. Either way, check your transmission fluid level and make sure it is not low. If it is is low, add some fluid and bring it to a transmission specialist to help diagnose and correct the problem.

Why does my trans slip at cruising speed, but takes off fine?


Please check your transmission fluid level after your truck has warmed up. The oil on the transmission stick should be red in color and not brown. The fluid on the transmission stick should be near the full level or at the full level when the engine is hot. You may need to have your transmission fluid changed along with a new tranmission screen in the transmission pan. Let me know if you will be doing the change of the tranmission fluid yourself or not. If you are I will be glad to outline step by step on how to do it.
