Question about Chevrolet 1982 Chevy Corvette 1/18 Collectors Edition

1 Answer

My 82 Corvette had low transmission fluid. I added the correct fluid to safe line while the engine was warm. It ran great. I parked it and when it cooled down the fluid raised so high that it leaked f

My Corvette was slipping gears and I noticed the transmission fluid was low. When I noticed the leak a few days later, I checked the dip stick and the level was way above the safe line. I syphoned 2 quarts out and the leak stopped. But the gears are slipping again.

How muchtrans fluid do you put in it to a2003 trailblazers transmission line came out all the uid ran out truck want go forward or backward


I would recommend you buy at least four litres of gm capatable transmission fluid, usually dexron four, but be sure to check your owners manual on proper fluid specification, or call a gm dealer.
You will need a transmission funnel, locate the transmission dip stick( usually red in colour ) and start off by putting two litres of oil in, now start the vehical and let the engine warm up and come down to a normal idle , clean off the dip stick and re install it until it is fully seated, now pull it back out and check to see where the level of fluid is at, there should be a few lines inscribed into the dipstick, full,low and add one litre. It must be, between the low and full marks, not any higher, keep adding fluid gradually and rechecking until desired level is reached, be patient as this takes a little while,

My 2001 ford taurus will not move at all with car on. Can place in all gear & still will not move a inch. What has happen


with the engine running,in park, open the hood. pull the transmission dipstick,located on passengers side,just below the windsheild.the handle may be red,or yellow.pull the dipstick out and read it.the fluid level should always be in the crosshairs or XXXXXX's it has a full reading, at the top of theXXXXX's but only while the engines running and motors warm. it [the dipstick has a cold reading,but more acurate when read warm,and in PARK. always use FOMOCO transmission fluid when adding transmission fluid to your car. that means ford motor company fluid only.[fomoco] is it leaking fluid at all? do you see red fluid anywhere that you park the car? if so,then you have either a bad front or rear transmission seal. either ones a better thing than a bad transmission ,sounds like you're just low on fluid,but i got to ask where the fluid leaked or where it went? suggest that you check for leaks. you may add fluid to your transmission and it moves, but be alert,look for a leak somewhere.thank you for choosing fixya.com

Transmission fluid goes low when driving for awhile then goes back to normal when parked for awhile


The transmission fluid level is to be checked with the ENGINE RUNNING, ond trans in park or neutral. there is fluid in the torque converter that will raise the fluid level when the engine is off..this is normal. So, I suspect that you may be low on fluid. and the indication after being parked for a while is not valid. Engine MUST be running, and ideally the trans fluid warmed up, but not critical.

My car hesitates and roars by jerking into gear while accelerating and decelerating. What would be some reasons that this is happening?


The tranny fluid may be low. Check it when hot,car idling & in park. The tranny bands may need adjustment & check all vacuum lines for leaks. Good luck!

Cant get the truck to shift into its gears corretcly. i have to let off the gas to get it to go n2 gear,.. n e suggestions? o and its a 1970 not an 82!


I would warm the engine and transmission warm up (take it around the block a few times) then with the engine at idle and the transmission in neutral -i'm assuming it's an automatic- check the transmission fluid, if it shows that it is low then add until it shows safe or full, if it is already full then since it is a 70 model truck I would suggest changing the trans fluid and filter.

If this were my truck I would consider going to a parts store and picking up a Haynes or Chiltons manual for it, they both contain excellent information about checking fluid levels, changing fluid and filter, and on standard transmissions checking and adjusting the amount of play in the clutch as well as complete tear down and rebuild info on the engine and transmission, atleast for most vehicles.

hope this helps

Transmission drops to low gear as if we were stopping while driving but when the car is turned off and restarted its ok for a while


When was the last time your Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? What is the level? You should be checking the level with it warm (normal operating temp), engine running and in Park or Neutral (with Parking Brake ON!). Low Fluid level could be the likely culprit. Poor Fluid condition (fluid smells burnt) is another possiblity. Use the correct Fluid Type and not the cheap stuff, as not all Fluids are correct for your transmission.

Upon starting it takes a few seconds for the car to move once you've slected a gear.


I suggest that you check the transmission fluid level on the transmission oil stick and make sure that the fluid is red and up to the full line after the car warms up. Also you may want to get your transmission oil changed with a new filter screen by a trained professional at a dealership or transmission shop.

Where do I check the transmission fluid on a 1997 Hyundai excel


Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
1687565.jpg
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed. Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.

DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. 2. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area around the dipstick. 3. With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking brake applied, start the engine. 4. The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 5. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the "N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is accurate. 6. Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range.
