2010 Mazda 3 Auto Trans 66,000mi. Slipped out of 3rd gear and would not engage in reverse on hot days. No warning light. Changed fluid and filter and problem persists. Just got a AT light on and would not shift into 3rd gear while hot and no reverse. Next morning AT light off and shifts normally. Could the solinoid be going out?

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport 2WD that I am having some problems with. It first started with the overdrive kicking off and the trans not shifting properly. When taken to my normal mechanic the check engine light code was the torque converter solenoid. We have since replaced the sensor trans fluid and filter.

1995 GMC Jimmy trans shift problem- but no check engine light at any stage of the problem . I can get the transmission to shift from 1-2, 2-3, but only by giving full throttle and then letting my foot off the throttle- then it ususally shifts. If the TPS is bad or a shift solenoid bad wouldn't the check engine light be on? Trans was pro rebuilt only a couple of years ago and fluid and filter just changed.

Check engine light is on . Replaced mass air flow sensor last time it came on and solved problem. It's only been 2 months sense its been changed . Have a K&S filter system , made sure I didn't over oil it. Thought about going back to stock air filter . Replaced MAF sensor twice in past 1 1/2 years .

1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, auto trans, will only engage in park, reverse and neutral. The engine sounds fine but it will not move forward (engage the other gears). A friend checked the linkages and said they looked fine. Transmission fluid was a little low and had air bubbles on the stick when checking. We added fluid but no change in problem. Did have a problem with ants getting in the engine area - found dead ones in washer fluid reservoir.

I have a 1998 Saturn SL2. I want to change the auto trans fluid and filter. Can you give me instructions on changing,fluid and filter and can I drain all the fluid out from the trans pan plug? What do you reccomend? I have 81,000 miles and had the dealer change the trans fluid & filter around 40,000 miles. It cost me $85.00. Thank you for you help.


Unless you drive in very dirty conditions where you have a lot of dust of damage to trans. Most highways and freeways are pretty clean. There is no real need to replace filter, so save yourself some money and just drain what ever fluid comes from plu ... Saturn SL2

03' Chevy Impala. V6 - 3400. Changed my transmission fluid and filter this weekend, and now the engine stumbles, and makes a knocking sound. Engine light came on, and blinks while driving. Auto parts said it was P0303 Error code. Changed all spark plugs and wires. Check Engine Light still on and blinks while driving. And still stumbles while idling or at low speeds. Looked underneath and saw smoke coming from the bottom of the exhaust, just before the muffler, at the flange bolts.


The steam indicates coolant leaking into your cylinders either through a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked cylinder liner / liner o-ring.Smoke that only comes out at startup would indicate that your valve stem seals are l ... 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

OK so I am fixing my 2004 mercury mountaineer after my bro had left it in new Mexico sitting for about a year. After changing battery, fuel filter, oil and air filter, I started it and everything was fine. When I started to drive it around the service engine light came on. I had it checked at auto zone and it pulled the code P0193. I know it has something to do with fuel but where do I start. Also since this light came on my MPG has dropped to low 9's on the gauge. I still drive it around to

EEC? Yesterday I gave my 94 Grand Marquis a tune up and had a mechanic flush the trans and change the trans filter and gasket. The car ran great last night and most of today. I was driving and it stalled like it was out of gas. I had it towed home and added more gas. If I spray starter fluid in the air breather(?) it will try to turn over but just die. Does this mean it is fuel related? Is there a way to check to see if the pump, or relay is defective? Also, when checking the fuse to the fuel pu

In my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan EX My check engine light will come on and stay on sometimes for days,sometimes for just a minute or two,and might not do it again for months. I've checked all fluids and changed all my filters,oil air. It's been doing this for 4-5 years since I've owned it.

I just had an oil change and my air filter changed out 3 days ago. Tires rotated and pressure checked 4 days ago and when they checked pressure during oil change said they said it was way too high and let out air. Don't know if they were right anyway after that.

Didn't work), and my vehicle dynamics control "off" lig
