In the research for adding a A/T cooler to a 2007 Hyundai Elantra I learned a few things. Some folks remove a coolant line to drain the trans while it is running & simultanously adding fluid until the fluid coming out rums red. The reason frequent change are recommended is because of trapped fluid in the converter. I added the cooler and believe the decreased temps will lessen the need for A/T fluid vigilance.
I also weighed the advantages & disadvantages of trans flushing machines and felt the possibility of flushing particles into the solenoids, etc was not worth the risk.

I have a 2000 Ford Escort zx2 and I have transmission fluid going into my radiator and my car won't move, how do I fix that?


The transmission cooler has broken inside of your radiator. You will either have to replace the radiator or add a cooler. (I would replace radiator) flush cooling system and I would also do a transmission service just in case the antifreeze leaked back into the transmission while not running. NOTE:Your transmission level would be down do to it pumping into the radiator cooling system. Fill transmission to proper level running and see if it wants to work, before replacing radiator as you could have damaged the transmission by letting it run out of ATF.

How to replace filter (diagram maybe?) in 400 turbo automatic transmission thats sitting in a 1985 fleetwood southwind motorhome?


  1. Check the fluid level. The first thing to check if you suspect that the transmission is acting up is the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) level in the transmission itself. The dipstick on the TH400 can be found inside the engine bay, on the passenger side toward the firewall (opposite the radiator). Pull the handle attached to the dipstick, which will remove it from the dipstick tube. Clean any fluid off and put it back into place, making sure that it seats all the way. Then remove it again and look at the tip of the stick. There are level indicators there, which will tell you if the transmission is low on ATF.

  2. 2

    Check the linkages. The linkages that are connected to the shift lever can get out of alignment at times, causing sloppy or difficult shifter response. Look for abnormalities such as bent or broken parts, loose attachment points, or blockages that would prevent smooth shifting.

  3. 3

    Change the filter. Unbolt all 13 transmission pan bolts (on the bottom of the TH400) and remove the pan. The filter is found in this area of the transmission. Filter kits, which include the filter and a new pan gasket, can be found at any auto parts store. Replace the filter and fill the transmission with new ATF (the TH400 requires six quarts). Do not put the bolts back on too tightly, as the gasket can become damaged. Six to 8 foot-pounds should be plenty. If no torque-wrench is available, just put them on as tight as you can by hand, and then turn them 1/2 revolution.

  4. 4

    Inspect the cooler lines. The number-one killer of automatic transmissions is heat. If the cooler lines that come from the radiator are damaged or leaking, it might be necessary to replace them. These items can also be found at the local parts store.

There is a mini-cooler inside the radiator tank that has ATF in it. The cooler lines between the trans and the radiator have ATF in them.
The smoke could have been ATF blowing onto the exhaust pipe.

WHEN IM DRIVING, IT POPS OR JERKS ALL OF A SUDDEN AND THEN WONT SHIFT GEARS. WHEN IM ON THE EXPRESSWAY AND IT DOES THIS, IT WILL BARELY GO 55 MPH.


Your transmission fluid is dangerously low (tranny is dry). The pops & jerks are the transmission
internal components trying not to seize onto each other due to lack of lubrication and/or overheating.
Low transmission fluid leads not only to loss of lubrication but lots of overheating (of the tranny).
The loss of Elantra performance (speed tops out at 55), is caused by power loss due to friction inside the transmission. All your power is lost overheating the transmission (toward destruction), instead of
being transmitted through the transmission to the wheels.

The 2004 Elantra takes Hyundai SP-III Automatic Transmission Fluid, with 8.4 quarts used in a
total refill - but just 5 quarts at a fluid change. For How-to transmission fluid change instructions:

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Hyundai-Repair-815/2004-Elantra-GT-transmission.htm

www.autozone.com claims that 2004 Hyundai Elantra can take these non-Hyundai ATF's:
Lucas Semi-Synthetic Multivehicle ATF
Pennzoil Muilt Vehicle ATF
Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF
Castrol High Mileage ATF

Can you walk me trhu the transmition fluid change im going to chenge the transmition fluid my self


This job requires some special tools first a swivel to get to the pan bolts and you have to remove all nuts off the oil pan on the transmission. you will need a pan to pick up 4 quarts of fluid that will come out when you loosen the oil pan, next after you hav all the nuts out use a pat scraper and a hammer and tap around the edge of the pan to get the pan loose, next once the pan is off unbolt the screen from the transmisson housing, Next drop the pan and then remove the filter remoce the filter oring and install new one from the kit you bought. clean bolts out then put the bolts in the holes and screw then in so you can install pan back on without the gasket falling off, after filter is in place and screwed on screw on the oil pan for the transmission go from right to left and front to back one bolt at a time tighten lightly till all bolts are snug. next undo the treansmisson line on the bottom of the radiator seperate the line and start the motor put it in drive with emergency brake on then put in low gear and allow 3 quarts of oil to drain out of transmission,, shut off motor and add 5 quts of ATf dexron 2 or dexron III EATIER WILL WORK . next with line still loose run three more quarts out, it will take about 12 quarts to change all trasnmisson fluid to change out all fluid also add one quart of lucas transmisson condtioner this will make the transmison shift smother and soften band and seals put the line back on the oil cooler on the radiator then start the car in park check for leaks, if you see no leaks then at idel check fluid level it should not be less than a pint low or a pint high it will cause problems. if you add to much loosen the line and let some run out then tighten and you check the fluid again if it's to the top you done. test drive after done this will take about 4 hours doing it this way good luck on your job.

When should i cahnge transmission oil in my 2001 vw jttta TDI? Currently car has 139k


Transmission oil should be replaced every 45,000 to 60,000 miles/ 60,000 to 100,000 KM to ensure the transmission will last a long time.

If your getting coolant introduced to transmission fluid or vise-versa, you need to change rad & make sure you flush both cooling system & especially transmission thoroughly a.s.a.p. before it takes out the transmission, if damage hasn't already been done.

You can drain and fill your trans. It will take 2.5 -3.0 quarts of DEX III trans fluid....goes in the fill tube. Or you can get said transmission flushed which changes all fluid including torque converter.....about 15 quarts. Way more thorough.

2003 Jetta TDI deisel fuel filter change


Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.
