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
2001 Pontiac Montana transmission slips when hot outside I have changed fluid and filter and found no metal shavings in the pan still slips when hot out or driven a while.?
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.
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. Possibilities could include: * transmission fluid level is low…
1998 accent that doesn't shift into over drive until you drive it for a ways Sometimes as far as ten miles after it does kick in it will be okay unless you let the car sit for a couple of hours?
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.
What is causing a 2000 Chevy Lumina's transmission to make a bump like feeling only after the car has been driven awhile and it gets hot?
Depending on the motor, it may need the electricity to run through a step-down transformer or another form of power conversion before it can be used. If this is the case, then the transformer itself can create an audible hum of high or low pitch. Even f there is no power adaption, the circuitry which is present could hum with what is know as simply an "electrical hum."
Would you recommend replacing a transmission in grand carivan that lost fluid due to seal failure and was driven for 20 miles?
Okay, if it was driven for 20 miles, the transmission was not empty. It would not work if it was. Did it quit moving on its own? If so, then I would recommend it. If it was still able to move under it's own power, I would recommend taking it to a shop that can do a full fluid flush (not just drop the pan, I am talking about a machine that completely flushes out…
How do you change the Transmission fluid on an automatic Toyota Echo when it needs changing as the car has not been driven under normal operating conditions?
One of the nice features of the Echo is that it has a transmission fluid filter. This means you may never need to change the transmission fluid (it is not listed at all in the owner's manual scheduled maintenance). If you feel that it really does need it because you have not driven under normal conditions, you can find details on how to do it, here: http://groups.msn.com/Sorensonbrian/atfchange.msnw
NO THERE IS NOT. Now there is a VENT tube in the top of the transmission that relieves pressure that builds up in the transmission when truck is being driven. You should never OVERFILL a transmission... If it has to much fluid in it, then it can push it out of the vent tube and to the ground. If the transmission is getting to HOT then it may also push fluid out of the vent…
Why would your 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix downshift while being driven and what can be done to fix the problem?
While I may not have the answer, I can sure offer a possible. I suffered the same question with my 1987 Pontiac 6000 STE. I took the car to a number of qualified mechanics and Pontiac service centers. As you can imagine, every one of them were more than willing to install a new transmission. I even took it to an old family friend who told me it's time to "put her down". After all…
I can't see any reason for water to get in the transmission unless it went under water from a flood or crossing a stream. If engine coolant is getting into the transmission I would blame the transmission oil cooler in the radiator in which case the radiator would need replacement and the transmission flushed professionally. If the vehicle was driven with coolant mixed in with the transmission fluid you will probably have transmission failure before…
What would cause a 1992 lebaron GT convertible with overdrive transmission to not shift from second gear?
Chances are your, or the previous owner, or someone who has driven your vehicle, did enough neutral drops that the transmission is not wanting to grab any of the gears. Have the transmission looked at at a local shop and see what the deal is. You'll probably end up paying around $3000 for a new transmission.
