Possibly pan, but more likely the front seal. place a piece of cardboard underneath the car overnight to pinpoint where its leaking from

How do i change my transmission fluid bmw 2003 325i

Go to autozone or local auto parts store. Pick up the car specific fluid and pan gasket. Similar to the engine block with it's oil, the transmission block has a pan for it's fluid. It should be as easy as jacking up your car, finding this transmission pan, loosening the 8-9 bolts in a pattern that drains the fluid into your pan and not your mouth. :D make sure your car isn't hot or been used in the past hour. you want to loosen these bolts together so that you don't damage the pan by warping it. TIP: after cleaning the magnet inside the pan use a bit of the new fluid to lube the lip of the pan and new gasket to ensure a secure fit. :D good luck.

Can anybody let me know how much trans fluid is needed when changing the filter on a 1999 f-450 trans ?

I've done this alone. It's easier with a second person, and sometimes helps prevent spills. Things you need to get started: The E4OD and 4R100 transmission system holds almost 18 quarts of ATF, and you must waste a couple of quarts to be sure you get it all purged and replaced, so buy 20 quarts of MERCON ATF [For the 4R100, use MERCON V]. You may use either conventional or synthetic, as long as it meets the above requirements.The 4R70W transmission system holds about 14 quarts of ATF. The 4R70W uses MERCON V, and the MERCON V can be used on older 4R70W transmissions that were factory filled with MERCON. I replace the transmission filter every other fluid change. Note that Ford does not recommend ever changing the filter. I've opened filters with over 300,000 miles that were not even close to being clogged. Don't buy a new pan gasket. The original is reusable. A 10 foot length of clear tubing and one hose clamp, sized to fit over your cooler hose. There have been different size cooler lines over the years, so check before buying! If you don't already have a special funnel that fits into the transmission dipstick tube, then you will need one of those, too.If you are changing the filter, drain the pan if your pan has a drain plug. If you are not changing the filter, jump to step 4. If you don't have a drain plug, go to step 4 to pump out the pan, preventing an ATF shower! Return here after step 4 and one pass through step 5a. Remove the pan and clean the pan and gasket, including the magnet on the bottom of the pan. Fuzz on the magnet is normal, that's why it is there!Change the filter. It just pulls out, there are no bolts that hold it. It is held in place by the pan. Make sure that the O-ring is removed, too. Sometimes it does not come out with the filter.Replace the pan, using the reusable gasket. At this point you can drain the torque converter. Some people think it is necessary, but I don't. Running the engine in the next steps will pump the fluid out of the torque converter. If your transmission was built after August 2001, you don't have a drain plug in the torque converter.To drain the torque converter remove the shield (or the rubber plug in some models) and turn the flywheel until you see the drain plug. If you also drain the torque converter, then the old ATF will not come out the return line until after the torque converter has filled.If you drained the pan, pour new ATF into the filler [dipstick] tube until you have added about as much as you earlier drained from the pan. At this point overfilling by no more than one quart won't hurt anything.Disconnect the transmission-fluid return line at the transmission - from where the ATF returns to the transmission from the cooler. This is the line towards the rear of the transmission. Clamp the clear tubing over the line that you removed from the transmission. This is where the fluid comes out.This is where the second person comes in handy. One person starts the engine, while the other holds the line over the drain bucket. A clothes pin can replace the person holding the line in the bucket. Run the engine until you see some air in the clear tubing. As soon as you see air shut off the engine. Refill through the dipstick tube with the same amount as you just pumped out.NOTE: If you drained the pan and the torque converter, fluid will not run out until you fill the pan a second time. Run the engine for 30 seconds, then stop and add six more quarts.Repeat step 5 until you have added 19 quarts with of new ATF to the system with an E4OD or 4R100. Repeat until you have added 13 quarts with the 4R70W.At least one time while the engine is running move the shifter through each position from P to 1, pausing about 5 seconds at each position. This will change some fluid that would otherwise be trapped in the valve body, accumulators, and clutches.Remove the clear line and reconnect the cooler line to the transmission.Check the fluid level and use the last quart to top off.Properly dispose of the used transmission fluid. Congratulate yourself! And your engine starter/killer person.

How do I change the transmission oil on my 2005 Freestar

Most newer Fords do not require this, and most don't even have a dipstick for the transmission.
Ask your Ford dealer about it...
If you are set on changing it you must drop the pan, and measure the amount of fluid in the pan.
Pour that amount of new fluid into the pan, and then reinstall the pan.

Do you have to drain torqe converter when doing tranny service how muchh fluid goes in with or without draining torqe converter

Torque Converters haven't been drained since
the 1960's & not many even then, had a plug

Remove the trans pan,clean,replace, your done

Never have a trans flushed unless you want problems

Your transaxle can not take much fluid
Don't know how much, but you could ask
a trans shop,a dealer or just buy 4 to 6 qts

All automatic transmissions get changed EVERY
30,000 miles or they will not make 100,000

Power Steering gets flushed at same time or
kiss the rack goodby

How do I change the transmission oil? Where do I drain the oil from? Is their a filter to change?

If you are asking about the automatic ... the drain plug is on the passenger side and can be reached without lifting the car. It seems like they put some sort of "loctite" type product on the threads as the plug was difficult to remove. You can't change all of the oil ... about 3 quarts can be replaced ... see the owner's manual for exact amount. You could do the drain & refill a couple of times if you want to do a more thorough oil replacement. You might start by not putting all of the oil back in and check the level as you don't want to overfill. One of the *long* neck funnels is useful for adding the new oil thru the dipstick opening. There is no filter that you can replace. Honda only recommends their autotrans fluid however I used the Redline synthetic ATF that meets their specifications.

Have 2003 Buick Rendezvous cx, has 175,000 kilometers, the transmission seems to have a slip when you go from reverse to drive, but only once in awhile, what could this be.

Have you ever had the transmission fluid changed? If not, it COULD be the problem. Don't take it to one of those Fluid Flush places. They don't change the filter and just pump out some of the old fluid. Go to a place that drops the pan and changes the filter.
I also use SEAFOAM transmission conditioner shortly BEFORE I change the fluid. O'Reilly's sells it.
Good Luck.

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L 4 cylinder motor. I had the transmission flushed almost 2 years ago and since then have put 12,000 plus miles on it. All I know is you are suppost to check the...

You need to, at the minimum, change the fluid & trans filter. Easy proceedure. With van jacked up & blocked so it won't fall, use a large collection tray under trans pan & remove pan bolts. let oil drain into tray. use screwdriver to pry pan off. clean pan thoroughly & trans matting surface. Remove filter. You may need to adjust low rev band. Check with dealer or parts store for proper clearances. Put new filter on & tighten bolt[s]. Use new gasket & rebolt pan. Use gasket sealer on pan side only. You'll need 4-8 qts. of the proper tranny oil. Fill through trans. filler hole. Start engine & let warm up, check level & don't overfill or you'll have to suction out until level.
