Answers :

What you have is called a "sealed" case. To service it, you have to remove a plug that sits a little bit higher than the drain plug. Knowing the transmission is full is simply filling it till no more fluid can be pumped into it from that hole. This is very similar to the differential on the rear end of trucks.

Looking for a serpentine belt routing diagram. I have a 1997 Buick Lesabre 3.8 engine, Type II, W/AC. It is a used vehicle that I purchased. I was told it had fornt end damage, before I bought it. IThe belt has come off. I am simply try ing to put it back on to take it to a service center to find out what the real problem is. We currently have over 18" of snow in the area. I do not want to risk overheating the engine to get there, if I can put the belt back on and better help my car.

We have a 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager SE. It was throwing a po740 Torque converter lock up code. It is not locking up. We were told it needed a new torque converter and transmission rebuild, so we did and the same problem exsists. We are sick of turning wrenches on it and really dont want to drop anymore money into it but we still need to know what the problem is. We took it to a transmission shop to get tested and this is what they told me. I looked online and got some info about the Tor

I recently purchased a used 2005 volvo s80. After a couple of months the regular service and transmission light came on. Took the car to dealer to get the regular service done, a transmission flush and the software upgrade. Next week the transmission light turned back on and I was told that the transmission system is not able to communicate to the engine system so they want to charge me $94 to reinstall the whole computer system. Does that sound correct and what if that still doesn't fix the

Tdi transmission i have a 2001 jetta tdi. runs great just need to know how to change the fluid and the filter on the transmission. I am very mechanically inclined but havent tried the jetta tdi transmission before. thought i would get some pointers before i tear my commuter car apart. I would imagine i get the fluid and filter from vw dealer.

Transmission after reaching about 30mph or higher the vehicle does not shift into the next gear. It runs high but there is no warning or check engine lights at all. I'm having the same problem right now with my 97 Yukon. I checked the fluid and it look clean and at the right level, could this be the vaccum module? Somebody told me that is a possibility, I just don't want to get swindled at a transmission shop if its a minor problem.


Hi\015\012\015\012\015\012The issue is the wiring harness off the transmission. When it gets wet, it would cause the transmission to shift hard. After it dried out it would be fine. You have to remove the wiring harness a ... 1997 GMC Yukon

I took my 2006 toyota corolla LE with 77k miles to Grease Monkey to get transmission fluid changed. They told me that they cant do it because the lead and aluminium ppm is very high. they said I should take it back to the dealer or if i wanted to get it done cheaper, i could go to a company called TTS (transmission technology services - i think it is a local company here in Boulder, CO) to see if they can offer a better solution. Apparently the Grease Monkey machine completely flushes out the tr


There are two schools of thought here...Generally, if a transmission has lots of miles on it and hasn't been serviced, doing so can lead to problems if gunk buildup dissolves too quickly and jams up the valve body. Some will do a service on a "wait a ... Toyota Corolla

Transmission Leak I have had a leak for a while now. I had put silicone on my transmission to help it from leaking and it worked for a while. Now I have peeled all the silicone off and when i went to put new transmission fluid in it comes right out the bottom. Some one has told me it was the transmission oil pan gasket, but i wanted to get some feedback before I tried to look at it. Any ideas?


Can you tell where it is coming from? The pan? Or from between the trans and engine? Or cooler lines? ... 1993 Plymouth Voyager

My 79 year old father was driving through Winston-Salem in his 2002 Olds Intrigue. HE had transmission problems and was told he needed a new transmission at a cost of $4200. Don't know too many details right now(don't want him to know I'm worried about hin getting ripped off) but could a new transmission possibly cost that much? Why wouldn't they rebuild? This is a AAA shop.Any opinions on whether or not I should be concerned would be appreciated.

I have a 2003 toyota echo and its making a loud grinding sound. It gets louder as i speed up, and only stops when the car stops. I was told it was the transmission and that it needed some type of fluid. They also said that it can only be applied by a professional, because there isnt an opening on the transmission. I have tried to find a book or something online to find this out, and I really dont want the transmission to go out. "Can't afford it atm" Would really appreciate the assistance. TY =

All of a sudden the transmission won't change gears. If I drive it in low it works but is slow. I can't drive on the highway and am not driving very much with this problem.(I'm afraid I will break it!) I checked the transmission fluid and it is OK. Someone told me it could be a modulator valve. Where is that located?? Should I try to fix that or should I get a diagnostic from a transmission place?


More than likely you have a clogged filter, a vacuum leak or it could be a modulator but not likely. You would be best served having a transmission place check into it, but be careful as to not be sold a bill of goods. Some places will try to sell yo ... 1989 Buick LeSabre

I have a 53 Plate Ford Focus TDCi and have a bit of a starting problem. The engine turns over fine, but when it is cold or has not been used for a couple of days it takes time for it to start. It sounds as though it is trying to pull the fuel through, but I have had it Serviced recently and the mechanic told me that the fuel is getting through fine. They also checked the Glow Plugs and they are fine too. I changed the Battery as one of the cells was dead, but I am still experiencing problems
