Had problem with 86 Lincoln not shifting properly when cold. I assumed it was because the fluid was thicker and would be more affected by a clogged filter. I had the transmission flushed and the filter cleaned and it worked perfectly from then on.

Oldsmobile came out with a fully automatic transmission in the 1940 model year.

The first fully automatic transmission was the Hydro-matic, offered in the 1940 Oldsmobile. There were semi-automatics (GM's Automatic Safety Transmission and Chrysler's Fluid Drive) available in 1937.

No. They did make a manually shifted "Semi Automatic transmission". No clutch, just shifted manually.

The first fully automatic car available in the US was the 1940 Oldsmobile. From aprox 1950 many cars were available with your choice of an automatic transmission or standard transmission.

If you mean Automatic Transmission cars the answer is yes. There are no fully automatic cars for sale in the U.S. so the question is a mute issue.

Is yours an autoshift, or a fully automatic transmission? With the autoshifts, the synchroniser has a bad tendency to go out because of improper clutch manipulation. This shouldn't be an issue with a fully automatic transmission, however, and if that's what yours is, the first two culprits would be faulty circuitry in the transmission computer, or poor coordination between the computer in the transmission and the engine computer (this was a recurring problem for Allision automatics coupled to Detroit Diesel motors). There should be a way of reading off fault codes from the transmission, but that's going to probably require you to go to a mechanic with the necessary computer software to do such.

A fully manual valve body in an automatic will need to be shifted manually ( no clutch ) May not be available for your application .

The first fully automatic transmission was developed by GM and first found in Oldsmobile in 1939, It was called the Hydra-matic

Hydromatic means nothing car related but, Hydramatic is a GM automatic transmission. The Hydramatic was the first fully automatic mass-produced transmission developed for passenger automobile use.

A transmission that is not engaging fully when in drive might need a new shift solenoid. There is also a chance that a band is stretched or broken inside the transmission.

Not usually. If they say automatic, they probably mean semiautomatic. This means it is partly automatic, but not fully. This basically means it has and automatic clutch and the shifting pattern is usually neutral is down and 3 or 4 up. If it is automatic it might have a CVT auto transmission, which are fully automatic, but most of the pocket bikes do not seem to use them.

The transmissions aren't made by Freightliner, and this answer applies to all commercial truck manufacturers. A fully automatic transmission is clutch free. An autoshift basically adds a synchroniser gear and computer operated shift mechanism to a manual transmission, and still uses a clutch. With an autoshift, poor clutch manipulation often causes the synchroniser gear to go out, making the transmission unable to shift. On a fully automatic transmission, that problem does not exist.

Yes, the Glock 18 is fully automatic.

Bring to a shop that has the equiment to fully pump out the transmission and torque converter and re-fill system

User Avatar

A fully automatic car doesn't need any action at all to change gear, a semi automatic car can have no clutch pedal, just a gear stick which you pull backwards to gear up or pedals behind the steering wheel.

350 Engines dont have transmission fluid. The Transmission does. Start the engine, leave the trans in Park, pull the dipstick and look at it. fill to full mark when the engine is fully warned up

"Turbo 350" is a slang expression for General Motor's Turbohydramatic 350 automatic transmission. It is a 3-speed fully automatic transmission originally intended for use with engines that produced up to approximately 350 pound-feet of torque.
