When should the transmission filter be changed on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT?
every 25,000 miles or every five oil changes which ever comes first.
Saturn vue problem transmission hesitates the error code indicated torque converter fault.will this be caused by the filter never being replaced It has 76000 miles on it.?
the transmission filter is in the transmission sump located under the gearbox. it is a flat panel type filter you best bet to buy a new one is to go to Chevrolet. they should be changed every 30'000 miles it is not a job for the diy'er as it needs to be changed in a clean environment as any dirt will destroy the transmission. and any mistake you make will also kill it as you…
Do i need to change timing chain or belt of my 1999 Pontiac firebird 98700 miles...........what else should i look for like water pump etc?
The timing chain or belt on a 1999 Pontiac Firebird at 98,700 miles does not need to be changed unless it is showing signs of wear or breaks. There is an inspection plate that can be removed to check this. As far as changing other things at this mileage, consider changing the filter and fluid in the transmission. The engine oil should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
VW will tell you that the transmission fluid & fuel filter should never be changed. My Service writer @ the dealership says they should bechecked/ changed wth every tuneup. When I took my Beetle to a local garage,the mechanic changed my fuel filter and showed me how it was full of water (my car was running rough). Anyway,call a VW dealership service dept. and ask them to show you how to do this.
Your owner's manual list exactly what to service and when. Don't have one then get one. But there are some that are common to all cars. These are my personnel intervals and not necessarily what is correct for your car. The oil filter and oil should be changed regularly depending on how and where you drive. 5,000 miles is normal for most conditions. Air filter should be changed every 30,000 miles. Fuel filter every 36,000…
How do you tell if there is water in the transmission and what is the fastest and cheapest way to remove it?
Should you flush the transmission fluid if it has not been done yet 1999 Pontiac Sunfire 125000 miles?
Absolutly not. Drain all the fluid out, replace the filter, and pour in fresh fluid. Do not flush this transmission. It has too many miles on it for a flush. You may stir up trouble with a flush. I would add a second filter from [http://emergingent.com/subpage1Magnefine.htm The Magnefine Filter System] as well.
Need to know about 97 firebrid making a shifting noise when driving on road. Not all the time. Just replace the gas filter. What about the transmission filter and oil does this need changed?
When the vehicle gets older, like your and my 2000 Foresters, it is much more important to change the fluid than the filter. Never changed the filter in my '96 Outback in the 210,000 miles I owned it. I changed the spin-on filter in my Forester when I first got it because the fluid showed signs of being overheated. If you want your transmission to last a long time be sure to change the fluid…
I have a 1993 929. My husband just changed the transmission fluid in it. He said you have to completely drop the transmission and make sure the you replace the filter also. Then put the transmission back up and fill it with fluid. Mine took app. 6 quarts. ,Jennifer Actually you do not have to remove the transmission, their should be a drain plug on the side of the transmission pan, if not you can…
Why would your 1995 Metro with an automatic transmission not have reverse sometimes Some days it works some days it doesn't Also when there is no reverse it shifts hard in the forward gears?
Unless there is a drain plug, you must remove the transmission pan. This will give you access to the filter, which should also be changed. Doing this will only remove about 35% of the transmission fluid. To remove it all, you will need to flush the system or use the transmission cooling lines connected to the radiator to remove it all.
The dealership said typically, you don't EVER need to change the filter/screen unless the transmission has suffered some type of damage to where there may be metal fragments floating around in the fluid. It's true. Not only should you never change the filter, you should never change the fluid either, you'll end up doing more harm than good. I've got two echos with >200,000 miles on each, and I've never done anything with the transmission…
NEVER flush a transmission with an internal replaceable filter. The pan should be dropped, the gasket removed and replaced and the filter carefully removed to replace (do NOT leave the filter neck seal in the valve body chamber when removing the original filter). You can flush the rest of the fluid with the new filter installed, but why?
