#171 of 228 Transmission Fluid, Problems, Repair
Sep 28, 2009 (9:20 am)
To anyone who knows anything about cars. I have a 2001 Lincoln LS, we noticed the transmission was "slipping". Well the fluid was low, so we bought the recommended type, Mercron V ATF, & added 2 quarts (it was still low) but we drove off to get some more & my transmission went completely out! The engine will rev, but there is no movement...However there is reverse! Guessing whoever serviced it last put the wrong kind in it, but is it fixable or does it have to be replaced all together?

No way to tell until you take it out and get it diagnosed. Doesn't sound promising though.

I was told that it would have to be rebuilt... $900 - $1,200 is the 1st estimate! I’m totally ticked Luckily the dealer where we purchased the car did some not so legal things upon our initial purchase, so they’re kind of forced to help us. Who knows to what extent they will help though!

That actually sounds cheap for a tranny rebuild.

that adding a couple of quarts of clean fluid, with fresh solvents & additives, was enough to dislodge or suspend some crud that found its way into one of the dozens of solenoid valves and other tightly-toleranced goodies that are all over the marvel of technology that is today's computer-controlled automatic transmission.
Once it's rebuilt, have the fluid changed out (completely, with an exchange machine) every 50-60K miles.
#177 of 228 89 Honda Civic CRX HF Clutch Problems
Nov 02, 2009 (1:24 pm)
So this is the story guys. I just got this car about three months ago. The car wasn’t making any noise it was running good. Then I changed the oil and for some reason the car started to make this weird noise like the flywheel was going out.(The next day after oil change I was coming home from work racing a GTI & a Porsche) Sooo anyways when the clutch was engaged the noise would happen. Then the noise just went away! Then I was driving with my friend and I was backing up into a parking spot. As I was backing up it sounded like I hit something. I got out of my car and looked, nothing was there. Sooo I got back into my car and turned it over w it in reverse and it wouldn’t go. I had to push my car all the way back home………Anyone have an idea of what I can do to check to see what the problem is……….I think I should get a new clutch…Maybe a stage 3 clutch w everything………….
Thanks for your time
Ps. Now if the car is in neutral and I let out the clutch it will just stalls. It only wants to go into reverse and 1st gear………….

Thanks for the info.. unfortunately the dealer is not going to do anything! I'll just have to have it rebuilt come the 1st of the year or so! Don't ever buy anything from Corporate Auto Brokers in Cumming, GA Every car they've ever sold to anyone I know has been a lemon !
#179 of 228 reverse hesitates before engaging
Nov 25, 2009 (12:46 pm)
Only sometimes when i shift to reverse it takes 1 to 3 seconds to engage other times it's fine. Also somtimes when shifting from revers to park it makes a rough click noise. shifting from reverse into drive works fine, and select shift works fine. also i hear grinding pulley noise when idling sounds like its coming from the transmission when under the car. Could this be old transmission fluid or worn seals?
#180 of 228 electrical and transmission
Apr 17, 2010 (12:55 am)
My 2000 ls was hit in the rear while it was parked. The very next day, I backed the car out of the drive and it hestiated before going into drive. As I drove down the street, the steering seem to be getting tight. I look in my dash and my speed odometer dropped to -0-, the Trip mileage went blank, the brake light came on. I took it to Auto Zone for a diagnostic and it gave a code of P1633. Some type of electrical problem that stated low voltage to battery. Battery disconnect or something to this effect. I then took it on to the dealer and asked that they diagnose what was causing the electrical problems and was told that I needed coils, spark plugs, and a valve cover gasket. They never said anything about the electrical problem, or the battery issued or low voltage to the battery.
How in the world can replacing coil paks, spark plugs and a valve cover gasket fix an electrical problem.
Does anyone know if the transmission have an electrical pump or something thats indicating that my tranny is about to go out?
