Milky is either water contamination or froth
being over full will cause frothing
drain the unit to the proper level first

SOURCE: Transmission when cold does not shift until 2800 rpm

Synthetic fluid is NOT recommended for your transmission. The best advice I can give you is to go and have the transmission completely flushed, and put the correct fluid, from Toyota, into the transmission. If you keep driving it with the synthetic fluid, you are going to damage the transmission beyond repair.
Also, get your money back from Sears.

I hope this helps you out. A FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: Bizarre shifting pattern 1984 Mercedes 300D automatic

Hello, The adjust of your t/v cable, not kickdown cable, and the operation of the vacuum controller at the rear of injection pump, and the modulator, is critical for this car to get a good shift.
Put you cable back on, adjust it so that when you have wide open throttle, the cable does not have any slack. Check the black vacuum line by the oil filter housing that goes to the modulator to see if it has vacuum. It should have about 10-15" vacuum and as you increase engine speed it should drop. If you get close to this, the trans should shift ok. If you cannot get vacuum at the modulator line, you need to ck vacuum supply, valve at rear of injection pump, hose routing, etc.
If the B2 piston failed, it would be difficult to move car or slip badly. Also, take into mind that at the bottom of your accelerator pedal stroke is a kickdown switch.
If you accomplish what I instructed, you will probably get a decent shift.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241

SOURCE: automatic transmission trouble

With so little info, you can only guess. Most computer controled transmission default to either second or third gear if there is an electrical problem.

The mitubishi trans has sensors on the trans that if they are hooked up wrong, it wont shift. If the fluid is full and clean, odds are you have an electrical problem. Could even be a fuse or the computer.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

SOURCE: Transmission not pulling very well, fluid ok was

Honda Civic 01 has a defetive torque converter that prematurely fails. Same issue with the Odyssey 03 to 05. (The difference is Odyssey got a recall whereas the Civic did not). When it does, debris gets into the transmisson thereby clogging the filter and sometimes ruins the gears. There is no drop pans for this type of transmission and the filter is located inside the transmission housing itself which renders it to be serviceable by transmission shops ONLY. Most often, when the torque converter fails, the entire transmission will need to be overhauled or replaced. A cost that could run from $850 for a rebuilt to $2000 for an OEM. The best cost effective way to remedy this siuation is to replace the torque converter before the mileage reaches to 100K. A rebuilt one only cost $120 or $700 for an OEM with labor ranging around $350. Far cheaper than a transmission replacement. If your Civic 01 is still running and it is beyond 100K, run fast to a transmission shop and replace the torque converter immediately. If the transmission is already starting to slip, replace the torque conventer and flush the transmission and pray that the tranny was not significantly damaged by the debri. Remember, the recommended trans fluid change for Civic is 120K / 6 yrs or 30K / 6 months if driving in severe conditions.

Why was the transmission fluid milky in color on my 97 blazer


Water mixed into trans fluid or oil will cause a milky appearance. Either there is a bad seal on the trans and you drove thru flood waters or the heat transfer pipe for the trans that is inside of the radiator has failed. Don't drive!!! Have it towed to a trans shop and have them check it out or you may be replacing the entire trans.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...


How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

check the level of the coolant as milky transmission oil is water in the oil ( busted oil cooler in the radiator.) or water in the replacement transmission.

You should go right away to a nissan dealership. Your Trans cooler may be mixing your coolant and transmission fluid. After time your transmission will start shifting hard or have a delayed shift. you could also drain some trans fluid out yourself and see if it looks like your coolant. It will look pink and possibly foamy.

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion


your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

Unless you observed the utmost in cleanliness when repairing the line and addling fluid, you may have gotten some junk in the tranny. The smallest impurity in transmission fluid can cause operational difficulties. If your lucky (and clean) you may have simply under or overfilled the trans. This can cause the shift points to change dramatically. Check the fluid level again. If you're not sure how to properly check the trans. fluid: park on a very level surface night before checking level, next morning depress parking brake and allow engine to run for 2-3 minutes before checking. Use a clean lint free rag to check level on the dipstick. If you are over full, drain some fluid off until you get it right, obviously if you are still low, add some more. Dextron-Mercon is a suitable trans. fluid for your car.
