Well,that is a good sign there were no chunks in the pan.I would pull the codes out of the computer.You will need someone with a scan tool that will hook up to your vehicle,and access the diagnostic trouble codes.Once the code is identified,that gives a narrower area to look at.Yes on the fluid and filter,basically.The flush removes all of the old trans fluid,while changing the fluid and filter is changing about half the fluid,but that's just fine too.

Please follow the experts recommendation . In Automatic transmissions are not using thick oils. Only special and manufacturers recommended oils are used. If you will not change it you will come surely to an unexpected and not worthy situation. Proceed as you been told . Renew the oil and filter and I again inform you to use the specified oil from manufacturer and nothing else.Also it is better to put into your automatic gear box if you can find the " Wynn's Automatic Transmission Treatment. "It will help a lot.

How much transmission fluid does it take when changing the transmisssion screen and filter?


When the pan is dropped and fluid is drained, to refill, it usually needs 5 - 6 quarts. When refilling, check the transmission fluid dipstick as you are adding the last two quarts. And also run the transmission thru the gears.

2001 Nissan Sentra XE: Automatic Transmission Fluid I've searched the Owner's Manual about changing the ATF. It provides the intervals for checking and topping up the fluid, but as for REPLACING...


no, its not maintenance free, you still have to check the fluid level, and change the oil and filter in the transmission about every 50 to 70 thousand miles(due to the fact your not towing or having to to the car). This just maintenance that should be done. The fluid will break down over time, and need to be changed. The filter needs to changed in-case of getting clogged. Yes, dirt, and stuff do get in. When you take the car to your mechanic for the transmission filter and oil change, ask, they should check the differential(should you have rear-wheel drive). As for us, its part of the service package. We do the complete change for one price(oil, transmission, check ALL fluids, (older cars get greased) tires and tire pressure). Ask them what is all included in the job, and the total price. You can get great deals that way. I hope this helped

What is replaced on 2005 corolla 1.4 diesel on a 4 yr service done 33k


depends on the mechanic,weither they are fleet fitters or dealer ,the dealers will change everything regardless because of the profit on the parts .A fleet fitter will only change whats necessary because if he changes everything then the boss will soon sack him for wasting the firms money.

Do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle


The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

Should i change the transmission oil in my 2006 Ralliart lancer ? I am getting different answers ? the first mechanic told me that it should never be changed on models 2005 and above, a second one told me...


The transmission oil needs to be changed about every 30 to 35 thousand miles, the fluid and filter has to be changed and all the fluid needs to be changed. Over time the bands and clutches wear and it plugs the filter which starves the transmission for fluid thus causing overheating and damage to the transmission, All cars require this service as cars run metal is shaved off the parts and lap in to fit this material will get into the oil and cause premature failure of the transmission, just like not changing the oil in the engine. You don't change it and you destroy the engine. You should add Lucas Transmission oil conditioner as well, this softens the bands and clutches and helps the rubber seals stay pliable. I am a certified master mechanic for cars and trucks, and if you want the car to run for a long time you want to change the oil. Read your owners manual and it will have the service mileage for it. Not changing the oil can cost you $4000.00 so a $150.00 oil change is much cheaper. If you don't have an owner’s manual call your local dealer and ask them they will verify what I am telling you. Also the transmisson oi is ra threw the radiator and if the oil is getting hot it will make the ac to under perform it will not get as cool. Thanks for your time and if this helped you please rate me.
