Answers :

Yes there could be a lot of damage to the transmission, I hope you received a copy of the repair order and it states the low fluid. As you didn't list which model and options, the best way to find the capacity is to look in your owner's service manual, it will be listed there.

My jeep gand cherokee went into limp mode 150km after having a custom made freeflow exhuast system fitted. My regular mechanic who has a diagnostic box with limited capacity picked up fault code "p1652 Combust". The gearbox was also reconditioned 3500 km ago and the gearbox-engine harness repaired at the same time. My mechanic "cancelled the problem" so the car is going fine, but no actul lwork was done on the car. Can I take it that the problem is solved (by itself) or should I have the car tak

Hi I have an A6 2.4 V6 Avant. Done 120k km's. Just had 120k service done - change toothed belt etc. No it shudders or stutters as you accelerate. It settles done at higher speed by the moment you gun it it will stutter. Have also had the gearbox chain and pistons replaced at 120k in the 6 speed multitronic box. Spark plugs ok. Timing ok. Full filter replaced. NO ERROR messages. Could this be an airmass sensor or what else should we look for? For a silky smooth car this is most concerning.

After impact everything shut down and the display on dash read SUSPENSION DAMAGE, GEARBOX DEFAULT-WRONG PART FITTED, AND PERFORMANCE RESTRICTED.

I'm thinking of buying a 2000 Olds Alero from someone I work with. I was told it needs rear wheel bearings. I've done research and am curious on a couple of things...

I have a bmw 5 series 530i touring it has done 57000 miles and is a late 2003. my question is that when i'm in steptronic and say going about 40-50 the car feels that the engine has stopped and restarts ( it feels like that but it doesen't stop ) there is a jolt almost a bang and and the car carries on, when i use the gear change part of the box it is or it apears to be fine. what could it be?

Hello My 18 year old neighbour bought his first car last week, a '95 Chrysler Stratus 2.0 with manual gear box. Now the tachometer is broken, I was told that there were some plastic parts inside it (sprockets?) which were damaged. And that there is one piece inside the engine right below the tachometer which also needs to be replaced.

When I get in start my 2002 Jaguar X type there are no warning lights on. When I start driving the gearbox fault light pops on and the car will not accelerate past 15-20mph.

Coolant light Few days ago my coolant light came on. Purchased the coolant (anti-freeze), and overfilled the coolant tank. Coolant seems to be seeping out when the car runs and starts smoking a little because some leaked on the engine. I had smelled the aroma of burnt rubber, like someone let the air out of a tire, then thought it was the hose burning up from the hot liquids. Did I ruin my engine by overfilling the coolant? Is there any other damage I could have done as a result of this mistake?

When I try to start my 1999 toyota camry it makes a loud rapid clicking sounds. It's been doing that for a couple weeks. A couple times when it has done it my car wouldn't start and I needed to jump start it. But every other time it will make the rapid clicking sound and eventually turn over. What is causing this? My friend said it could be the ignition switch. The battery was just replaced. it is in good condition. There doesn't seem to be any damage on the cables either
