Trouble shooting 2009 chev.aveo gearbox leaking oil on pan gasket how do i repair the leak on the gearbox


Determine if it trans fluid(red) or engine oil. If the trans pan gasket is leaking, drain it (By slowly remove the pan) and replace it. Don't use the rubber gasket. Use cork or silicone. If oil, coming between the engine and trans. This would be a rear main seal on the engine. Trans has to be pulled to replace it.

1998 chev S10 automatic transmission want shift out of 2nd gear


You have either no power to the transmission solenoids, or you have a problem with the shift solenoids. Check fuses first. Could just be a power supply issue. Then, move on to changing the transmission shift solenoids. If you remove the transmission oil pan, and the fluid is dark brown and smells horrible, it is probably a burnt up transmission.

How much trans fluid needed after filter change on 1997 dodge caravan


My 1997 Caravan manual states that the trans fluid capacity is 8.5 quarts. However, in the transmission oil change section, it says to drop the pan, drain the oil, replace the filter and add 4 quarts of new fluid. This tells me that the torque converter is not draining so you are in fact, only changing "half" of the transmission fluid.

Need to change the transmission filter


get your self the right tools, the filter, transmission fluid, gasket, gasket silicon, a good wide drain pan, clean rags, some cleaner to clean out the pan like brake parts cleaner. first find the transmission pan. once located undo the bolts around the pans flange or use the drain plug to drain all the fluid. if it doesnt have a drain plug then you have to take off the pan to drain it, messy! once the pan is off you should be able to see the filter and swap it out. clean out the pan, pan magnent, put your new gasket on and use some silicon, bolt it back on. fill the trans back with new fluid. this is straight forward approach. and dont mix the oil pan with the trans pan. the oil pan is under the motor( if that helps) let me know if you need any help or you dont understand something, thanks

Need to change the transmission fluid in my 98 corvette


to change your tranny fluid and filter is relativily easy i will tell you step by step here.
1. raise the vehicle and support it with jack stands
2. get a large drain pan
3. locate the transmission oil pand and losen all the bolts removing the rear half of the bolts only and just losening the other bolts to keep the pan held up but allowing it to sag on the rear.
4 be carefull because in this step your likely to get a bath in tranny fluid. insert a flat srewdriver in the back of the pan and carefully pry it lose. now trany fluid is going to pour out of the pan.
5. remove the rest of the bolts be carefull because the trany pan still has a lot of fluid in it.
6. grab ahold of the filter and pull it down.
7. insert the new filter but make sure the rubber gasket came offf with the old filter they have a tendency to stick in the transmission.
8 replace oil pan and torque down evenly
9 refill with correct fluid to the correct level
10 take for a drive and recheck the fluid level and check for transmission fluid leaks
ps when the pan is off clean the inside of it out with brake cleaner really good
If there are no leaks after you get done congratulate your self on a job well done

hope this helps you
please rate me
Thank you

Transmission fluid/filter change in 2000 Honda Odyssey


I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts
