Why would a 2000 Pontiac Firebird transmission shift hard when driven for a while even after the filter and oil was changed?

1999 firebird doing the same thing... the trans has a support mount that has a piece of rubber that touches the trans to keep the trans stable. after time the rubber wears out and you will replace the trans mount. dont take it to the dealer it is costly and the part is around $40. you will have to raise the car up to exchange..Look under car to find the part its right between the bucket seats

good luck

It is advisable that you check with your local mechanic as to when you should get your transmission fluid changed in your car. Ideally, it should be changed every 3 years or so if the car is driven aggressively.

I'm not positive here, as I don't have my Haynes manual at hand, but I think the speedo is cable driven from the transmission.

i have the same problem my friend told me to check the color of the Preston an also check the radiator it's probably that the problem case the transmission oil need to be filtred inside an get colder

The 2009 Pontiac G5 gets 25 miles to a gallon when driven in the city and 37 miles to a gallon when driven on the highway. When averaged that is 30 to a gallon when driven on both the highway and in the city.

Strictly the transmission is "hydro driven" on a Kubota BX-series tractor. It is has a high and low range but speed is fully adjustable and controlled by a variable swashplate in the transmission. The mid and rear PTO's are gear driven by a wet hydraulic clutch pack. FWD is strictly gear driven from inside the transmission. Hope this helps.

it is built into the timing chain cover driven by the crankshaft

There is one prototype that scientists have waterproofed and changed from regular cars that can drive on land and water and also be driven underwater. It looks like a Pontiac Soltice GXP.

Possibilities could include: * transmission fluid level is low * transmission fluid needs to be changed - change the filter, too * transmission could need adjustment - the bands may be slipping Always check the fluid level with the engine at normal operating temperature (like after being driven 10 or 15 miles) and leave it idling in park with the brake set, and the wheels chocked.

The primary is the connection between the crankshaft and the clutch/transmission. It can be one of three types depending on the motorcycle, either a gear driven, belt driven, or chain driven depending on the who makes it.

Belt driven accessory lower right side of engine

It has a belt driven automatic transmission. Similar to a snowmobile.

Could be the fron seal, rear seal, or pan gasket

The drive gear is in the tail shaft of the transmission. The driven gear is on the end of the speedometer cable housing.

There could be a number of reasons why a 2000 Chevy Lumina's transmission would make a bump after the car has been driven a while, and it is hot. The bumping is caused by a failing transmission, and a mechanic will need to see it.

Some cars make noise like a squeak or a chirp when driven in reverse if they have high mileage. This noise is a warning that the transmission needs to be serviced. The filter should be changed along with the fluid.

A 1998 Accent that doesn't shift into Overdrive until driven a few miles probably has a transmission slippage problem. It could also mean the transmission is low on fluid, or the fluid and transmission screen need to be changed.

Remove the shifter cable and switch from the drivers side of the transmission and the seal will be driven over the small shaft and into the transmission case. The shaft is the one that the shifter cable hooked to.

My grandson had to replace the motor mounts on his Pontiac Grand Prix last year and now the mechanic says they need replaced again. He has hardly driven it. How can that be

In 1979 the speedometer was driven by cable. They went electronic in the early 80's.

In "normal" driving conditions, it should be changed every 30,000 miles; if driven in "severe" conditions such as extreme hot or cold, or dusty or if used for towing, change every 15k. Or if you notice the fluid is brown, smells burned, or causes general problems with the transmission it's a good idea to change it.

The water pump is located on inside of the timing cover. It is driven by the timing chain.
