Frist look to see if your trans has a plug in the bottom of your pan. If so drain your trans of fluid. If it doesn't you must loosen pan bolts and drain fluid from the sides of the pan it self. Then you must loosen and remove your bolts on your pan to get to the filter that is connected inside of trans either by bolt or clipped in place. remove filter and replace with new one only. Then replace your pan gasket with new one only. To keep pan gasket in place useing gasket sealer. make sure gasket is completely in place matching all holes. When tighting bolts Do not over tighten 20lbs torque is all that is required. Be sure all bolts are tightened at same torque. Replace fluid with required fluid that manafacture requiers for that vehicle. Pouring fluid into your transmission dip stick tube useing a small funnel. Replace only as much fluid as you have taken out. Do not over fill or serious damage is very possible to trans. once fluid is in transmission start your vehicle in park. check your dip stick on trans. If it doesn't read at full mark. Add more fluid until it does. #1 Once your at the full mark place your foot on brake and shift shifter through all gears park,rev, nutrual, drive. drive low, then back to park. #2Check your stick again to see if fluid is still at full. Add fluid if it is not full. and repeat #1 If your fluid is at full after going through your gears. Put car in drive and move forward slowly. It should move. If not repeat #1 #2 once trans is full and doesn't slip. It's safe to drive. Check trans at about 1 mile down road. If fluid is full your done. It is easier and much safer to take it to a garage if your not sure you are going to be able to do all this. It is safer for you to have it changed for under 75 dollars then to replace your transmission. Then to pay 2000 dollars to replace a screwed up transmission. They are damaged so easy and aren't at all easy to fix. So if in dought see a professional. Don't attempt it your self. Good luck

    Check your trans when engine is running. And go through the gears also when it is running. You can't check the fluid other wise

Manual how to replace transmision oil

The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

I have an 06 impala i havent change the transmision oil and is black. i know i have to that. but if i change that wil it run like new? is it worth takin it to dealer and pay 500 dollars? or do i need a new...

You can change it and see what happens if the fluid is black it is considered burnt . Here the test is it slipping? Then it will need to be rebuilt. If there is no slippage then just go ahead a replace the fluid and the filter

I have a 1992 toyota camry, the transmision seems to work fine untill it worms up. ?After it worms up it wont go into reverse, and it does not seem to come out of overdrive, plus the overdrive light...

You change fluid because it breaks down from the
heat,one of it's main jobs is to remove heat

Fluid is not a fix for anything

Sounds as though your due for a rebuild

There are no new transmissions
Only new one time, when it is built

Check transmision light comes on and it wont shift to overdrive ,Whats sthis mean

This mean thet there are some problems of transmision and the computer doesn't allow you to overdrive becouse you can destroy it. It's a protection measure. You must go to service for a test.

The filter for automatic transmisions is in the trans. You take the trans oil pan off while draining the fluid to change. Then once the pan is off you will see the filter, it should be replaced at the same time as changing the fluid.

My transmision fluid is black and two transmision mechanics say if you change transmision fluid the car wont run no more is this true sombody please help me they are saying im going to need a new...

The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

When changing the transmision filter how much fkuid do I need to put back in the transmision after the new filter is in

Figure on having on hand about 12 quarts, but always use the dip stick to check the fluid level...I know they are hard to read, but if you have some old carbon paper that we use to use before computer, you can wipe the paper on the stick and it is a trick to be able to see fluid on the stick better.
