You can try lucas it is a good product. but i have to ask what was the last time the fluid and filter changed in the transmission? as far as the pinging noise is it coming from the transmission or the engine?

I have a 2003 chevy malibu, the transmission only slipped for 2 days. I added lucas transmission fluid. As soon as i went to drive then put in park now my car will not go into any gear except for...


The Lucas has changed the thickness of your required transmission fluid, or you have overfilled your system. However much you added needed to come out prior to adding the Lucas. If you didn't take any out first, then do that and your problem should go away. If not, then get it flushed at a local car repair shop for around a hundred bucks and that should get it back to the right thickness and the correct flyers d level. Good luck

Transs. slips after oil change


Some times on higher mileage cars your transmission will slip when you have the transmission serviced or flushed. The reason for this is that transmission fluid has detergents in it that help clean your transmission. When transmission fluid ages it losses most of its detergent which causes your transmission to become a little gummy inside. This gummy residue helps your transmissions bands and clutches to stick. Now since you have new fluid and new detergent in it it has cleaned away this gummy residue causing your transmission to slip. There is a simple solution for this problem. All you have to do is make your bands and clutches sticky again. Simply go to your local parts store and get a bottle of Lucas transmission treatment. Within a few day you should notice the slip decrease and totally disappear within 100 miles or so. I hope this helps you out. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

The transmission seems to slip when going in reverse in my Ford Explorer 1994 (OK going forward). Transmission fluid is OK.


have one myself w/over 400.000 miles suggest you change transmission fluid and filter,just add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change. never had problems w.mine. but firm beleiver in lucas oil and transmission and fuel treatments. just trying to see how far i can go w/mine. the lucas treatment added to your fluid and transmission fluid and filter change frees up stuck valves in the transmission. sounds alot like you may have a stuck valve body in the transmission to me.pull your transmission fluid dip stick,this is going to sound strange but go with me for a second please, does the fluid smell burnt? do'nt be scared to put it on your finger and sniff it. if it smells like burnt expletitive,then it needs replaced and filter too. just please add lucas transmission treatment to your fluid change,you will not regret it. the treatment [lucas] will cost an extra $11.00 onto the fluid change,trust me, you will not regret it!fluid changes are a must for ford explorers 4x4 don't know why,but they demand baby formula. lucas,i've found is that formula. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here 24/7 for you 7days

My kia has 75000 miles on it and ive been told that my transmission has been slipping, it struggles to shift into gears and to go up a hill, it will not go, what do you think i should do?


I would check the fluid level. I'd try replacing the transmission fluid if it is not red in color. What color is the fluid? Does it have a burnt smell to it? Most likely the transmission will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

What is the best transmission fluid to put in a 93 wrangler with 101k miles, should i use any additive with the fluid and if so what kind?


i would use what the factory recommends you can find the fluid type stamped on your transmisson fill stick as far as additives i would recommend lucas transmission additive but be warned that if fluid is real dirty or has not been changed in a long time that with alot of miles changing trans fluid in high mile vehicles can start transmission to start slipping.

Automatic trans slips 92 ford explorer


I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.

Hi, I checked the transmission fluid level.  It is a bit high.  Read an article on web, it says high trans fluid level may cause transmission malfunction.  My technician took some fluid out to lower the level.  Not sure it will fix the problem yet.  Will let you know.
Do you think high trans fluid level may cause the problem I experienced?
Thanks for your help.
