I dont have an answer for you but, if your Saab has a modulator valve that may need to be replaced. I have an old Ford and I had to replace one around a month ago.The valve is supposed to tell the transmission the load of the engine so it can change.Another thing you will probably have to get your computer checked if it is a newer model.
passenger side rear of motor, it goes down the same tube used to check the transmission fluid levels, you will need a good funnell
Check your transmission fluid levels. Look around for leaks...you'll see a reddish fluid around the drive axle on your transmission or around the radiator.
There are 2 ...the drain plug and the other should be on the side to check its levels....Max The Automatic Transmission in a BMW Z3 contains a lifetime fluid - If you drain it, you cannot refill it and you will destroy the transmission. The same goes for the rear diff...
All fluids should be checked when you purchase fuel. All fluids except for the transmission fluid should be checked with the engine off and at operating temperature. The transmission fluid should be checked the engine running and the transmission in PARK if automatic or NEUTRAL if manual.
It is important to check the fluid levels of a car. The transmission dipstick of this car is under the cars hood, behind the grill on the front of the engine block and has a red seal.
I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe as well. Like many cars, the automatic transmission fluid is poured directly into the same tube the transmission dipstick is located. The transmission dipstick has a red locking grip with the words 'TRANS/LOCK ->' imprinted on the handle. Do not confuse with the engine oil dipstick which has a yellow grab ring. The transmission dipstick has two ranges - one for cold transmission fluid levels, the other for hot transmission fluid levels. Please refer to page 6-25 of your user manual for specifics about this. Suffice it to say, the manual suggests only adding transmission fluid after checking the hot transmission fluid level where it is found to be low. The cold transmission fluid range is for reference only and is not trustworthy. If adding transmission fluid, be sure to use fluid labeled as Dexron III - any other type may cause permanent damage to the transmission.
You failed to mention whether this is a manual or an automatic transmission. Automatics are normally filled through the dipstick tube. Manual transmissions are normally filled via the upper plug on the side of the transmission. This is the plug that is removed to check the fluid level. One removes the plug (normally a 17mm Allen in VWs) and sticks ones finger in there, the fluid should be at the bottom of the hole. With the automatic transmission, the dipstick has markes on it, usually for hot and cold levels.
You are not supposed to, it's a sealed transmission, no dip stick.
Depends on the car.
If your 93 Nissan Pathfinder transmission won't shift into overdrive, check the transmission fluid levels. Ensure the fluid is at the proper level.
Just like with engine oil, transmission fluid is easy to check. There is a dipstick similar to that used to check engine oil levels. It is usually farther back on the engine. Pull it out and check the levels of the transmission fluid.
The 2003 Jaguar S Type does not have a transmission dipstick. These vehicles were manufactured in a manner that the transmission fluid levels can only be checked by professional service technicians.
It is important to check and maintain fluid levels in a car. To check the transmission fluid, a person looks for the red cap under the hood, this is the transmission dipstick.
The reason a 1992 Nissan Maxima is downshifting so much is the transmission is slipping. This may be due to low transmission fluid levels, or old and worn out transmission fluid. The transmission itself may need to be rebuilt.
A person must maintain the fluid levels of a vehicle to keep it running well. The 1989 Corvette Manual transmission holds 3 quarts of transmission fluid.
Answer There is a dip stick at the back of the engine. Start your engine first, let it run and check your transmission oil level. You only check transmission oil levels when the engine is running, other oil levels have to be checked when the engine is warm to hot but not running.
No transmission fluid or fluid level is too low. If levels are fine, take to transmission repair shop.
1968 what? Need more info. for instance whatgear and when it occurs. If automatic could be self protection of transmission due to improper fluid levels or bad clutches or bands.
Question is not specific enough - manual transmissions are 'sealed' and fluid levels are maintained by removing a plug from the side of the case. Automatic transmission fluids are checked and added thru the dipstick tube located on the passanger side of the engine compartment near the firewall.

AnswerThe transmission is damaged, You will need to take the vehicle to a ford dealership to have the transmission replaced, or fixed. 9 times out of 10 it is cheaper and more reliable to just replace the transmission. My 1996 Ford Taurus Had the same problem in 1997 then again in 1998. Taurus transmissions tend to tear up easily if abused. Make sure that your not grinding gears. Make a full stop then change gears when backing, or vise versa. Also, Check the Transmission fluid levels at least once a month. Also make sure that whenever parking the vehicle that you use the parking brake. The automatic transmission should NOT be used as a braking device!Answer:The most common problem with this transmission is the forward control valveit cost about $10.00 and 3 hours to put in.--Formatted--http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t43838.html
