Change the fluid and filter, use synthetic trans fluid, you may cure your issue this way, have you run self test on the trans for trouble codes?

My hond odessey 95 shift an drive when cold but stops when hot


i answered your previous post and you mentioned the Transmission... but if its not driving when it gets hot, then you have an overheating issue. your cooling system, either its a bad waterpump, to maybe a stuck thermostat, to a bad radiator with no antifreeze in it. orrr it could be your transmission oil cooler. i seriously recommend to stop driving the vehicle to stop further damage, and get it checked out.

I have the vehicle checked my honda CRV. It does not have external transmission cooler, the radiator does the cooling. How do I stop transmission overheating, without installing externer cooler?


replacing the radiator might help because if the cores are partially blocked the cooler cannot do the job
take it to an accredited transmission service center and have the bans and clutch packs adjusted
check that the transmission is not up past the full line as that will also over heat a transmission
it is advisable to consider the external cooler as it makes the transmission run probably 100 degrees cooler than a radiator cooler
for example with a radiator cooler the oil is at engine operating temperature ( 95-100 C) but with external cooler , the ambient temp rarely gets over 45 c so that is cooling the oil by 40 c even before the transmission starts to work
it also allows the radiator to be more efficient for the engine

How to replace the trans cooler line connector in the radiator with clip 2000 s-10 zr-2


The tanks are plastic and if the hose fitting broke out then the fix is a new radiator. As in radiator coolers are prone to failure before you invest in a new radiator , consider buying an air to air oil cooler to cool the transmission oil . The oil will run at ambient temp and not at 95 degrees c or hotter and the radiator is not having the load of trying to cool really hot oil. Talk with an auto transmission shop to get some details and I think that you will find the oil cooler cheaper than a new radiator.

Will a auto transmission cooler from a ED falcon fit an EF falcon


If it is in the radiator it should as the fittings are the only problem you are likely to encounter. If you are wondering if the cooling capability is affected consider this . Hot tranny oil has to be cooled in the radiator water and this heat makes the radiaror work hard.Why don"t you consider a external cooler. They keep the oil cooler as they are are running in the outside air. Ie air temp 30 deg C oil temp 150c+ water temp 85degC oil temp 150c. You can see that the tranny oil looses more heat and it will not overload the radiator capability

My 1999 Olds Intrigue, 3.5 motor, auto trans, heats up when going uphill. Going downhill, or on a flat road, with the same number of RPMs, it does not. Recently had the engine cooling system flushed, and...


could be a good candidate for the overheating problem
it is probably the oil line that goes to the oil cooler in the radiator and if it doesn't have sufficient flow then the oil in the transmission gets progressively hotter
before replacing it consider this
transmission oil coolers that are in the radiator tank keep the oil at coolant temps which is around 95 C
if you spend a bit of cash and fit an air to air transmission cooler , it brings the operating temp of the oil down to 1/2 ambient temp
besides the fact that your are now removing an added heat source from the coolant of the engine the results are --cooler running engine and cooler running transmission
worth talking to an accredited transmission specialist shop

95 ford mustang hot outstide quits running


For starters have the radiator and coolant system flushed which may help cool the engine better. But when it gets too hot, motor oil loses it's viscosity ( thickness and lubrication properties ) and gets thinner. Especially in hot weather you should make sure you have good oil and make sure you dont run it low on oil. On the flip side make sure that it's not overfilled because this will blow out the seals and you'll have much bigger problems than no power. Hope it helps!

1999 Sable quits shifting when it gets hot


How do you know it's getting hot ? What is the Temp gauge showing ? Do the cooling fans work ? Have it checked for trouble codes an scan data checked .
It was however the correct thing to do in changing the fluid and filter - that's the first suspect. No no it wasn't , the correct thing would be to take it to a qualified repair shop . Hooking up a professional type scan tool an viewing data , inputs to transmission control module , ECM/PCM - engine computer etc. The control module controls shift solenoids -which shift the transmission . You could have 1-2 shift solenoid shorting when getting hot . View scan data is the only way to see this problem .
