Either a dealer or a wrecking yard. You could also take it to a transmission shop and they'll be able to get a replacement part for you. You could also go mail order at a place like this: Although there are plenty of other options.

What are suggested services to prolong transmission life for 2004 Honda odyssey with automatic transmission?

Make sure the transmission is never (NEVER) overfilled! Bought one (HONDA Certified Used Car) with the extended warranty and all the service checks before getting out of the dealership. Seems the tech slightly overfilled the transmission when topping off the fluids and pressure built up in the transmission and cracked the case! Good Note!!--Honda took care of the cost of a new (remanufactured) transmission.

What would cause oil to leak into the antifreeze reservoir on a Chevy Venture?

If it is motor oil in the anti freeze, then it is either a cracked head, cracked engine block, or a head gasket blown. If it is transmission fluid in your antifreeze, then the radiator is leaking from the transmission cooler ----- although usually that would cause antifreeze to be in your transmission fluid.

What are the signs of a cracked flywheel in a 1998 Chevy 350 engine?

If you are really talking about an automatic transmission flex-plate, then a clicking noise at a lower rpm that seems to go away as yoiu wrap up the motor would indicate a crack. A maual transmission's flywheel that is cracked will generally cause the cluth to slip, and eat the clutch disc rapidly. There will be a strong smell!

Why would there be oil in the radiator of a 2006 f350 diesel?

You've probably got either a bad head gasket of a cracked head.That's the only place where the oil and coolant come in close contact. It may be transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission - check your trans fluid level, and check for milky looking appearance to the trans fluid. The transmission cooler is integrated into the radiator and leaks can develop between the two.

How do you stop antifreeze from getting in your transmission?

A/T have a fluid line that runs through the cooling radiator of your car. My best guess is this tube is cracked inside your radiator. The radiator will needs to be replaced. I am not sure, but I believe that automatic transmissions often use engine coolant for cooling, and I suspect that there is a leak in the transmission. Transmission fluid cooling radiators are separate from the engine radiator, and transmission fluid is pumped through them by a pump. They usually are not stock items, but have to be added on. You probably should take the vehicle to a transmission shop, and have them check it out. Coolant will dilute the transmission fluid, and possibly corrode the transmission parts.

The radiator has a transmission cooling tank in it. Evidently the tank has cracked. You may have a crack in your radiator your transmission cooling line runnz in your radiator good luck

What does it sound like when the transmission in a vehicle is failing?

If it is a manual transmission it may make a whining noise or, if it is really falling apart, a grinding sound. If it is an automatic, they usually don't make any particular noise. Most of the functions are pressure valves so the transmission just doesn't shift properly or won't move when in gear. If you are geyying a grinding noise but the transmission seems to be functioning okay you probably need to have the flywheel inspected to see if the starter is dragging or the flywheel has broken or cracked.

What are the chances of your transmission working properly if your radiator cracked?

not good since most transmission coolers are inside the radiator. if you drive a car with a cracked radiator you can overheat the trans fluid causing the fluid to break down and also you run the risk of damaging the head/head gasket(s).

What causes a bad fly wheel on an automatic transmission car?

The flywheel can be cracked or the teeth on the flywheel can be broken or worn. Either of these conditions require the flywheel be replaced. I would also replace the starter when replacing the flywheel. This will prevent damage to the new flywheel from the worn teeth on the old starter.

If your 1989 Honda Accord was hit on the front right tire caving the tire in bending the axle and of course the frame does the axle affect the transmission?

If the transmission housing is not cracked there is a good chance that the trans is OK. Sometimes the axle absorbs all the shock. If the housing is cracked then you may have trans problems. Mark

Throwout bearing, bent/cracked clutch fork, and Poor clutch pressure are other potential causes. Transmission failure. Broken gears or transmission parts have become wedged in the path to the reverse gear. Rebuild transmission.
