Start checking the transmission fluid level, and eventually top up the fluid.

    If you have noise from the gearbox, check first the transmission fluid level.

    Even if the level is to the top youi may need to replace the fluid in full to get rid of the metal dust residual dissolved in the transmission fluid.

    If your peugeot is over 80K miles (about 100K Km), and the gearbox had become noisy, then the gearbox will need a rebuild (taking apart, cleaning bearings and rebuild), ask your mechanic a quote for gearbox rebuild.

    Scratching gear noise can also be caused by a faulty clutch, in this case you check the clutch, eventually fix clutch cable or replace the whole disk , depending on a circumstances.

    Finally, a bad driveshaft bearing can also generate noise when you shift gears. In this case you usually notice also an abnormal vibration on the driveshaft.

Hi , I have a Mazda 121 model 1994. today I saw that oil leaking from my gear box so fast , how can I add oil to my gear box to before get it to garage? because I guess my gearbox run out of oil and I...


hi.
if it leaking that fast, it sound like you have a damaged seal.
i would not recommend adding more oil as it will probably come out even faster when you are driving.
the safest option would be to tow the car to the garage, or even better, have it trailered in.

HOW CAN I FIX A GEARBOX OF AN AUTOMATIC NISSAN B14


Auto boxes are best left to professionals but there are some things you can do 1) check that the selector rod from beneath the gear shift to the gear selector on the side of the gear box is correctly adjusted, 2) make sure that the transmission oil is at the right level, new oil can be added via the dip stick tube. If you are adventurous and are able to remove the gearbox pan you might be to see evidence of the gear box damage, metal shavings etc. If you can remove the gearbox you may be able to replace a sheared splined input shaft (indicated by a an engine that is running but that will simply not engage gear). Anything repairs beyond this should be left to an expert or simply replace the gearbox

I cant seem to find where to top up the gearbox oil on my 83 land cruiser


I dont believe thatford ********, ---get under the cruiser half way along the gear box on the left hand side you will find a bung plug 1/2way up the gearbox that is your filler and oil just dribbleing out that hole is the level.----at the back of the gearbox but attatghed to it is the transfer case this is made of aluminium,at the back of this slight y to the left about 1/2 way up is another bung that is the filler for the transfer case and also the level ,NOW LISTEN GOOD if you havea hose conecting the gearbox ******** to the transfer ******** thats good it just means the previos owner ,.or one of them had their head screwed on . W hat happens is this, strange as it seems the transfer case oil gets forced up into the gearbox,with the end result that the gearbox gets over full and the transfer gets low on oil,what we have been doing for many years is putting a bypass hose between the two fillers and as the oil gets forced up into the gear box it gravity feeds back down into the transfer case,,,so if you cant find the bungs but you have that hose you now know what it is all about, -------please let me know if that solves your problem, I know I am right but it is nice to be told

Mercedes c class with tiptonic gearbox. It seems to have got stuck in a low gear when I slowed down for a roundabout. When I accelerated to 50/60 mph, the rev counter was way too high and no auto gear...


It seems oil level is low in your gearbox, and it most likely leaking from adapter bushing ( where cable is connected to gearbox).
You need to replace seals or complete bushing and correct oil level.
Better if you visit your mechanic.

Auto transmition wont go into 3rd and 4th gear


I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist
