VUE 3.5L Automatic Transmission Fluid Change [Archive]

04 vue transmission

. So i decided today to get a secong opinion the this place said the tranny feels fine but the engine is throwing 8 codes and that is most likely the problem. I have owned 2 Hondas and 1 Acura before. I never had an automatic transmission problem in 40 years of driving cars. This is more or less what I thought.

Manual says cross hatch area but that doesn't exist. Got the problem of getting the fuid in solved but now a new problem. Find out how much fluid your transmission holds. Then connect one end of the flexible line brake line should work - ask your local auto parts store to the fluid cooler where you removed the other line and leave the other end unconnected to drain into a pan. They did not even know it was a Honda trans.

transmission fluid filter replacement

The percentage of the settlement each person receives will depend on the number of miles on the vehicle when the transmission failed and whether the current owner bought the vehicle new or used. Several stories on this board about dealer service advisors telling customers that the Honda trans is a sealed unit and not servicable. I try to visit forum daily but suggest you use private messages if in a rush comes to cell and include email address for extracts. A full fluid change out is only possible with a pressure flush machine from the dealer or oil change place. Perhaps an inline filter on the trans cooler line. So, to make sure you know when it's been flushed, get yourself two clear shallow containers, like tupperware or the bottoms off a couple of milk jugs or something.

Changed the trans fluid on my 3. This is a total disgrace. I tried even scoring the inside end of the hose, put oil on it too, so it would slip on. Rate the quality of this post and help Chazberry reputation points. Not so much air in the lines, but the thought fear of the pump sucking air and scoring itself and loosing pressure over time.

Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. I bought it used with 66,000km 41,000 miles. The dammage occurs because they suck air, or the fluid is allowed to get too hot. I have owned Honda's before and they all have been difficult to loosen the first time. If the colors do not match exactly, your system has not been completely flushed. A lot cheaper and easier than trying to do a complete exchange with Amsoil.

Yes, how come it always works out like this. Warm up the car so the transmission is at normal operating temperature. Otherwise, I would imagine that even 30K would be considered aggressive. Spark plugs with aluminum heads were always suppose to be taken out cold as I recall. Another problem I had was running the car too much.

Not knowing exactly what kind of pump this auto has, I decided to play it safe. Excellent advice from an experienced professional!!! They came up with a retrofit to add more lubrication to one of the problem areas by adding a spray tube where the filler plug is. Avoid scratching the metal and make sure the pans gasket surface isnt bent or distorted. At least 5 quarts of new trans fluid. I believe that a recall should be issued as my vehicle had only a bit over 50000 miles when the problem first occurred. I'm not sure and was curious. Once the vehicle is shut off, the hose will stop draining.

I have a 2006 Vue 3. Have this amount readily available. If it is not flexible, you'll probably need to have some extra temporary, flexible hose on hand to use. I tried to use your suggestions on changing the trans. I do not believe that they are servicable by the do-it-yourselfer.

Saturn VTi Transmission Failure

It is never burn or change in color. . If you change the fluid 3 times your mixing the old with the new and never getting a complete change. As long as you have some way of seeing the fluid level as it rises you don't want to overfill the bottle and have fluid run all over your hands. The 'how to', which I think was on the amsoil site, recommended removing the cooler lines to the radiator in order to do a complete change.
