because the auto trans will automaticly move to the next gear to compensate for the speed increase. If you really want to slow down going down a hill in an automatic without using the brakes you need to select a different gear, ie:third, second, first, low etc. get it?

I thought I could remove and replace the transmission in my Blazer, I did get it out but I didn't want to put it back in so I paid a local shop to come and get the blazer, transmission, and all the parts that had to be removed to get the transmission out and finish the job. I would suggest that since you are asking this question, maybe you would be better off going to a transmission shop in the first place. Mine is an automatic, a standard transmission would be much easier.

The speed sensor is in the engine compartment on a 1995 Nissan Sentra GXE automatic transmission. It is on the back of the transmission.

The automatic transmission has a dipstick that is located near the back of the engine. It is underneath the hood and has a red handle.

An automatic transmission shift valve is like a swing. It is moves back and forth with the use of pressure. That is how gears are changed.

Hey dude, you did not specify if it is automatic or standard transmission. If it is Manual Transmission, it is located on top of the transmission.

This is a common problem with these vehicles. The transmission fluid and filter need to be replaced. This is done by dropping the transmission pan.

In the dip stick tube on the left side of the engine toward the back. It should be marked TRANSMISSION.

Your car most likely has an automatic transmission. If you're noticing the rpms going up and down it is because your automatic transmission is using its torque converter. it uses the torque converter to get the transmission up to speed with the engine and then it locks but when the torque gets to be too much for the engine it unlocks and speeds back up again.

To change the transmission fluid in you Renault Clio you will have to remove the transmission pan from underneath the transmission. The easiest way would be to loosen your back bolts first about half way out and then loosen up the rest about a quarter of the way.

The Neutral safety switch is located on the back of the automatic transmission. it is quite simple to replace. It is probably easier to replace from under the vehicle, but it is accessable from the top if your vehicle is not equipped with ABS.

It is located between the back of the engine and the transmission. It houses the flywheel and clutch if it is a standard or the flex plate and the torque converter if it is an automatic transmission.

It came factory with a 4L60E transmission and that is what it MUST have put back in it.

its on the back passenger side of the motor! hope this helps!

Between the back of the engine and the firewall on the passengers side.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission the dipstick is located under the hood on the passenger side in back of the engine, close to the firewall.

Depending on the type of car you have, Your transmission may have an Overflow wherein it kicks out when hot. but if you mean its constantly dry the could be the front seal leaking going back into the Engine or cooling line damaged upfront because automatic transmissions do run to your radiator to keep it cool.
