Usually you change the trans fluid by the drain plug or if it does not have one,it is the messy removal of the pan.
Remove all pan bolts but a couple at one end.Tap the pan with a rubber mallet if stuck on,until it frees.
Have one hand on the pan base as it loosens and let it down gently.let it drain into a large basin or similar.
Clean the pan and replace the gasket from your local parts center.Do not use any sealant on this pan gasket.While in there,replace the filter.as you remove it more fluid will drain out.Some also have a o ring here to.
Unusual for trans lines to block totally.disconnect and blow air through to clear.Oil cooler should really be cleaned out to with a suitable cleaner if there is a blockage.You do not want this contamination in your trans.
I hope this helps you.

If you are trying to change your transmission fluid using a tube and syphon pump STOP STOP. your trans probably has a blow out preventer (stopper ,sortof) As with 99% of auto transmissions you have to drop the pan, this facilitates the changing of the filter and pan gasket also. If you are not familiar with this proceeure don't attempt it, go to a professional.

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?


GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

Where is tranny filter on 04 hyundai elantra? can a garage mech. do it? whats the best way to drain the tranny oil?


The filter would be inside the pan. The best fluid change is at an oil change place that uses t-tech style machine. This style will change the fluid in the torque converter, cooler and lines. It takes a container of new fluid and runs that in while old fluid runs out...done until clean fluid is coming out.

well the only two places it can be leaking form are the front tanny seal or the pump seal if its minor leave it for now, because to fix it you have to remove the transmission.

I Have transmision problem with my Dodge Stratus 2002 2.4 Lt


You need to flush and change your tanny fluid and this should help with the late shifting.
Note, these cars kindda have bad rep for tranny failure unless you drive soft and not vigorously, like my brother who went through 3 rebuilt tanny before he learned his lesson.

Transmission fluid flushing


In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

I have 1995 Isuzu trooper 4 by 4 and has 120k miles in it.lately, i have noticed that very late shift specially from 2nd to 3rd. i just had serviced the tranny with the spec specified fluid.any idea please


I had the same problem.

When you had the transmission fluid changed, were you able to change the filter also. If not give it a try? Its possible that the filter is clogged. Did you have a look at the transmission fluid when you drained them? i mean the colour, smell? and if there were metal particles in the fluid. If there were metal particles in the fluid I suggest you overhaul the tanny(thats if you can find someone who can rebuid the tanny) or have it replaced with a surplus tanny.
