first of all there is a drain and fill access point on the trans case under the car.. you dont fill it from the shifter.. once the fluid starts leaking out of the fill hole that means it is full.

How do you repair a gear shift cable on a 1993 Saturn SC2?

The shift cable usually doesn't break. The bushings on the shifter inside the cabin have been known to break, or the clips that hold the cable to the tranny fall off allowing the cable to come off the tranny. I would check these points first before replacing the cable.

How do you change the transmission fluid on a 1999 f150 5.4?

start up the vehicle and run through all the gears. then shut it off and go directly under the tranny pan. loosen up the bolt and drain the tranny fluid. when it is all drained, torque to bolt back on to the tranny pan at 25-30 lbs. then go back up to the engine compartment, where you check your tranny fluid level, and put about 5 quarts of tranny fluid in. then start your car up again, run through all the gears and check the fluid level again while the engine is running. add more fluid if you need to. if there is too much, drain a little bit out and check it again.

What causes the gear not to go into reverse on a 1999 gmc Yukon?

Call your local GM dealer (or go online) and check for recalls or campains on your vehicle cocerning this problem. If the SHIFTER will not go to the reverse position check for an obstruction in the shifter linkage from where the steering shaft exits the cab down along the firewall to the frame where there is some type of bell crank that changes the back and forth movement of the shifter linkage to rotation force connected to the side of the transmission; if there's no reason for the linkage to be bining your next stop is at a reputable tranny shop. Call the BBB and ask.

Where do you add transmission fluid Gear oil to your manual transmission 1991 Nissan 240sx?

First take off the cover that goes around the radio and the shifter. It just pops off if you use a flat head and pry up, there are about 6 clips. Then you unscrew the shift knob, and remove the boot, and then there is the rubber boot. Use a 10mm socket to take the 4 bolts out and remove the rubber boot. There will then be the shifter with another small rubber peice that covers where the shifter enters the tranny. Take it off ( it probably has a zip tie so cut it). Then theres the tricky part. There is a C-ring on the bottom of the shifterpart of the transmission ( follow the shifter down to where it meets the tranny, there will be a bunch of white plastic peices that hold it in. Onto of those is the c-ring) Use snap ring pliers to romove it ( its really stiff) and then pull the shifter out. You can then just pour the tranny fluid in. Make sure you don't use to much or to less. ( check the factory service manual for specs).

take the tranny drain pan off and install a new filter in the tranny and then clean pan off real good and install new gasket on the pan with permetex to hold it in place and let dry for about 5 minutes and reinstall the pan then refill tranny with new fluid, usually about 5 or 6 qts to fill, start car up and let it warm up and move shifter around a few times and put it back in park and check tranny dipstick to make sure it's full.

Why is transmission slipping and making a ticking noise?

Check your tranny fluid. The ticking is not the is most likely top end ticking. Your valves need adjusted. If the tranny is empty and you fill it and it keeps slipping, look into buying another tranny. You can buy them new...or you can call around to your local junk yards to see if they have a used one. Make sure you check the mileage on the car or the tranny itself. If it's already pulled, they should have records of what vehicle it came out of and they can check the mileage on the car.

What is wrong if 1998 ford explorer will start but won't move when shifted into any gears?

First, check the tranny fluid when the SUV is off and cold. Then check the tranny fluid after the SUV is warmed and idling. The level of tranny fluid level should go down, if it doesn't the tranny itself is not taking up any. Replacing the tranny fluid filter may solve your problem. If not its most likely the tranny oil pump. This is if your fluid level stays the same when warm or, cold. If the tranny fluid changes from cold to warm, your tranny has a more serious problem and should be looked at by a pro.
