Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Here’s the sequence of events I follow:Check fluid level and color. Make appropriate repairs.Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode ifapplicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission andthis is the easiest way to check them.Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings insidepan. Check valve body and clutches visually.Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you justwere a bit low on fluid.
Please understand that I don't know your skill level or toolsyou have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace arepair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have todeliver bad news:)If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatlyappreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and Iwill still assist you after you have rated me too if anotherquestion pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you untilyou rate me
Do you have any more questions for me at this time?
Thanks again, Ron
