Delivers maximum protection for towing and other severe-duty applications. A small amount of fine grey clutch dust is normal. I have heard that mixing 2 good brands will cause the oil to start making sludge. Thanks again, you guys always save me a ton of money. No forward, no reverse, not even a hint the tranny is even there. If I do this, do I need to worry about getting air in the system? Obviously the bolt sizes and locations may vary slightly from vehicle to vehicle, but generally speaking, these steps should apply to any manual transmission.
Note: Dry fill capacity Depending on type and size of internal cooler, length and inside diameter of cooler lines, or use of an auxiliary cooler, these figures may vary. It all depends on your driving conditions. I thought it was the seals, but it was easier and cheaper than that. They may not care but believe me I tell everyone this story and tell them do not buy Dodge anything. Hear from other customers via the 3,024 reviews on parts for your Dodge Dakota. After I bought it everyone said you will have transmission problems! People can often cure their transmission problems by changing the fluid and retraining the computer retraining instructions are lower on the page. American made cars need to catch up quick to Toyota, Honda.
We then took a 650 mile trip and had no problems. Bishop I definitely recommend a look at these transmissions, you've got to have a look. Dry fill capacity depending on … type and size of internal cooler, length and inside diameter of cooler lines, or use of an auxiliary cooler, these figures may vary. See my other lists for the on-going repairs we have had to sink a pile of money into to keep this junker on the road. See if they mention adding another clutch pack to the 1-2 clutch pack, so that there are 5 instead of 4 in there. I've always used gaskets on tranny pans to prevent this. Again, not trying to sound like an idiot you talk about the top line being the pressure side.
However, if you find metal shavings, there has been transmission damage. Make sure you are using the filter specified in the owner's manual or the correct third party equivalent. Changing the gear lubricant regularly as recommended in your vehicle's manual can seriously prolong the life of the gears and bearings inside your transmission. There are also different gear sets available, I have the 3:55s in mine. Check fluid level and add fluid as needed. A rebuild is the only repair for this.
This is a company vehicle and has been nothing but trouble from the day we bought it off the showroom floor of the dealer. Some gaskets have four holes slightly smaller than the rest to allow four bolts through the pan and through these smaller holes to hold the gasket in place. Some have the same filter in boxes with different numbers! Best bet-buy all four pieces if built in 1993 and earlier, all models if you can afford it. This could cause filter clogs if the silicone breaks off. I would estimate it would take about an hour the second time around to disassemble the shifter, replace the part and reassemble. The brush-on gasket maker and high tack will probably be too soft. If the fluid smells burned or is contaminated with particles, have the fluid analyzed.
Colder weather places -20s require a somewhat heavier weight 5W-30 and hot weather places 0 and above require a somewhat lighter weight 10W-30. Be careful to include O-Rings or other seals. Another idea is to remove the check ball in the transmission line easily noticeable because it is a large brass bulbous fitting attached to the rubber line. Is that the line and the only line I need to remove? You might want to let people know to check that. If the seals are bad, the only way to fix this problem long-term is to overhaul the transmission. I was looking at my manual to see how uch fluid to add.
I did this to correct harsh kickdowns, and it still works after three months. The transmission was still going strong at 140K when the truck was totalled. This will provide a positive seal that will hold up to heat, pressure, and time. This will shorten the shift time, firm up the shift, and give you more life out of the tranny. On a side note, you might want to think about an auxillary cooler at this time if you don't already have one they are easy to install.
This keeps it at a constant, exact temperature, no matter what the weather. For non lockup 3 spds, either can be used. One said new transmission, the last said there was a cut in the cooler line that no one bothered to check. If the clutch clearances are bad this will not work properly. Hope to find it in a parts store soon.
There is a machine that attaches to the trans cooling lines. I have a couple more questions. The transmission would not change gears. Again let the van run for at least 5 seconds in 4th between kickdowns. Some aftermarket filters, though they fit, are actually Universal types intended to fit several different transmissions. This is the second tranny that has failed in this steaming pile. If that fails, it could be a sensor problem or an internal problem.
Check your owner's manual for the specific type and grade of fluid; Manual transmissions will usually use gear oil, and automatic transmissions will use transmission fluid. The steps outlined in this video should apply to just about any manual transmission. If you want to get all of the fluid out, you need the have the system flushed. If I need to replace it with +4, am I going to have to just drain the fluid, or do I need to replace the filters again? Let me know if you have other qustions. There is absolutely no power being transmitted to the wheels.
