First, are you sure it's the transmission? What year? Is it carburated or injected. If it's throttle-body injected you could have a partially plugged injector. If it's carburated you could have a bad accellerator pump in the carb. What you described doesn't really sound like transmission.

Answeri had a 97 Lincoln Town Car that used to stall when i was at stoping and i changed the fuel filter and it ran perfect, those filters are like 10 bucks at pep boys or auto zone, we should change them every 10,000 to 20,000 miles, but nobody ever does, hope this works AnswerCheck for vaccuum leaks

Where is the transmission filler cap?

There is no filler cap for a transmission. to add fluid you must pour it down the dipstick tube. only check the level of the fluid with the engine idling at normal running temperature.

A car drives to the right. There is a large amount of air resistance, and the car's engine provides the car's forward motion. Which force on the diagram below represents the normal force acting on the car?


Why did the transmission on a 1988 Honda Accord stop working after washing the engine?

The metal transmission screw-in dipstick was removed and lost. This left the transmission fluid filler hole open. Normally water does not enter this location from above if the hood is closed. But since the engine was being washed, the washing fluid entered the transmission and mixed with the transmission fluid. The contamination caused the transmission to begin to cease normal expected hydraulic pressure. Transmission stopped working. Solution: Drain with a pump and refill the transmission fluid and replace the metal dipstick.

How do you check the transmission fluid level on a 2003 ford explorer?

Transmission fluid can only be checked with the engine and transmission at normal operating temperature. You will need to drive about 5 miles to achieve this. If you check it with the engine cold you will get a false reading and could do more harm than good if you added fluid. Leave the engine running and then check the dipstick level. If it needs fluid, at a little bit at a time then check the level again. Overfilling will cause irreparable damage to the transmission.

1989 Chevy Caprice TBI V8. Service engine soon light comes on only sometimes when on the highway all gauges are reading normal light goes off after you shut the car off What is the problem here?

I have an '89 L03 engine Caprice too. This is most likely caused by the EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Return). Not sure how to fix it as mine still works but it might be a sensor problem.

Ever checked the transmission fluid levels? That can only be checked while the engine is running and at normal operating temperature. The tranny fluid could also be contaminated and need flushing - be sure to change the transmission filter, too.

What are signs that the transmission is going on 96 Chevy Cavalier?

If the transmission is slipping (the engine revs up when it shifts), if the transmission shifts late, even under normal acceleration, or if the tansmission simply won't shift, you should get it checked. Also make sure the fluid level is adequate.

Why won't a 1978 caprice go into drive gear?

The shifter doesn't move? - if so, the ignition switch is at fault not allowing the shifter to physically move. The transmission doesn't go into drive gear? - if so, your fluid level may be too low ... proper transmission fluid level must be maintained at all times. The only way to check that fluid level is with the engine running and at normal operating temperature. Be sure the transmission is in Park, the break set, and chocks placed at all wheels to prevent the vehicle from moving.

Why does your engine rev when it shifts gears?

in an automatic transmission when it shifts the belts that hold the planetary gears that control the gear ratios grab the next gear before it releases the previous gear. while the transmission is in two gears at once the engine doesn't provide the power to the transmission so with the lack of tension on the motor it allows it to build up speed before it slows back down when the transmission releases the lower gear What about a manual transmission? Is it normal for it to still do this same thing?

If Transmission fluid is milky colored?

Could be a bad radiator allowing engine coolant to circulate in transmission Change fluid and filter Run engine to normal operating temperature - pull transmission dipstick and allow a drop of fluid to drop on a hot engine part - oil will smoke and coolant will sizzle If coolant present - replace radiator also Hopefully not too late

What is transmission fluid?

An oil like fluid that exists within the sealed transmission on a car. It's this fluid that allows the car to shift gears smoothly when driving in a forward direction. Without this fluid the car will not engage into any gear. To check the level of the transmission fluid the engine MUST be at normal operating temperature (like after a 5 or 10 mile run) and with the engine idling in neutral/park AND with the break set. Pull the dipstick and wipe clean, then insert fully and pull out again to read the level..It is very important that you do not overfill the transmission ... too much transmission fluid is just as harmful as not having enough. Add little amounts at a time and keep checking the fluid level all the while with the engine idling.If you check this fluid without the engine running you will get a false reading. You cannot measure the transmission level unless the engine is running and at normal operating temperature.
