automatic transmission filter change

Showing 2 out of 11 Posts | Show 9 Hidden Posts
Question From Guest on automatic transmission filter change

transmission on a 89 oldsmobile cutlass. was wondering if anyone knows anything about how to change the filter. transmission is slipping out of gear and sometimes it wont go back in. other times you got to ease on it. sometimes foward drive wont work other times reverse drive wont work. anyone got a idea of what my problem might be.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Surely you have checked that the fluid is fairly clean and of course full now.

This slipping is usually game over t=for the transmission.

The filter should be held in by a small bolt or a bail. Changing fluid won't hurt but only a low chance of solving the trouble, T

Response From darrin

well i'm hoping that it might help fix it. i'm hoping that it might be a cloged filter but i know that it usuall means it's done. theres just one bolt right. besides the ones on the pan. this is my first time changing the filter.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

I don't know how filter is fastened exactly but if you just look at it - it whould be fairly straight forward. It may not come out even with fasteners removed as it could be also friction tight to a strong rubber seal kind of like a PCV valve does.

Good luck and let us know if it works or helps. You'll know pretty quickly, T

Response From darrin

well man, i changed the filter and the fluid. started it up. ran good. took it to town. put 5 bucks in gas in it. broght it home. brought it up to about 70 to see what it would do cuz it was running good. real good. got to the road i live on and it stoped moving. put it in reverse and it started grinding. put it in drive and it moved but it wouldn't go. it just slowly creeped forward. i guess i need a new transmission. but i was wondering if you knew anything about that 3.3l bolting up to a transmission thats bolted to a 2.3l. i think it's the same tranny. just not sure. they both say hydromatic on the pan. what you think. should i try it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Valiant effort Darren!

I think this battle is lost so the options are................

Good used (good salvage yards will know what models and years will just bolt in and they are pretty good at guessing which ones are good.) Some will install what they sell!

Off to get rebuilt which would have a substantial warranty. Getting pricey though and may get up to $1500.

New out of box is wicked expensive and I don't know of many who can take that expense on an older car.

Of interest: I always have driven older cars -- right now an 89 with 210K on it and it purrs but it's rusting and won't spend big bucks on that one anymore. There is a time to cut your losses and it's hard to tell when. There were a few that I spent way too much on as they were a love affair. At the end of the day they are just metal objects.

If this car is in nice overall shape go for it. Just looked at a flyer of used cars here and I was shocked at the prices!!

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

Y'all come back if only to say "hi" T

Response From darrin

well the engine thats in the grand am has 222,990 on the od. but it's in very good shape. no rust or anything. interior is perfect. the engine in the olds has maybe 20,000 on the rebuild. it reads 113,000 on the od. so i was going to try to mix and match. the grand am is a 92 and the olds is a 89. i know there both gm cars so wouldn't they bolt up. i'm going to have to experiment with it. in my book they say that all cars listed here come with one of two possible transmissions. a 3t40 a 3 speed and a 4t60e a 4 speed.the 3 speed was 96 and later the 4 speed 96 and earlyer. now both 2.3's and 3.3's are listed in the book. i'm wondering if it would work. i see your from massacusets. i'm originaly from new york but i'm living in south georgia now. i know what winter does to a car up there. total rust out. well man thanks for the info. i'll get back to you if i have any luck. and i'm gonna keep an eye on this site.

Response From Guest

the 4t60e is an electronic trans. the other im not sure about but if it not i dont think they can be interchanged. by the way why did you even continue once you saw broken parts in the pan?? i mean they obviosly came from the transmission and i would guess they are their for a reason.

Response From darrin

them plastic peices looked like they had been there for a long time. they left marks on the bottom of the pan and the entire pan was coated in a jello like substance that i'm guessing was metal particals and old fluid. wasn't sure if it was just a minor problem or not. but now we know. i belive both transmissions are 3t40's. gonna have that checked out.

Response From darrin

well i pulled the pan off. the magnet is very dirty. like jello. and theres some white plastic ring type thing in the bottom of the pan about the size of a big grapefruit. it is broke. i found 3 peices of it. i couldn't find the rest of it. any idea. the filter was a pull off type. my fluid looks dark red. like maybe say brick red. i think i might have to rebuild this transmission or get a new one. i'm going to try the new filter and new fluid first just to see what it does. sometimes they have a way of fixing themselves. but sometimes they dont. i'll let ya know what happens . thanks for the info

Response From darrin

i'm draining the fluid out of it right now. i'll keep you posted just in case it aint. thanks man.

Question From jeffholderness on 1995 acheiva tapping/knocking noise

Hi all,
I would appreciate any pointers on where to go next with this. I’ve listed the problems I’ve been having with my car, and would like to try fixing them myself if possible, but am fine with taking it in to a shop for diagnostics if you recommend it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have tried to include all relevant history on the car that I know of. Anything I'm missing I would be happy to check on and add.

Also, does anyone know of an inexpensive OBD program/kit for a 1995 olds achieva that would also work with the current OBD2 interface? It's apparently wierd year for OBD, and oldsmobile used different interfaces on different models. Perhaps something I can hook up to a laptop? I’d prefer to not spend a lot of money on something that will only work on this car.
Thanks in advance.

The car:

Mileage: 120k, bought used at 90k in 2004 with no maintenance record
Engine knocks/taps at idle (I’ve been told it sounds like the timing belt needs replacing, however the achieva uses a chain so I'm not sure), Increases intensity and speed as RPMs increase
Decreased (60% of cold) noise when hot (15 min running)
Burns oil. Needs 1qt/1k miles. Not seeing it in exhaust.

Oil pressure gauge at 40psi during idle (1k) and increases to 60psi when RPMs at 3k
Pressure gauge on the dash jumps by 5 psi while applying gas at idle (ie immediate change from 40 to 45 psi and back down again after I let off the gas)
Replaced transmission at 95k, however, I just checked it and looks rather dirty
When in neutral, revving the engine, the RPMs sputter at 3.5k (I didn’t press my luck after the drop in RPM, so I don’t know if I can push through it)

Tune-up about 20k ago:
The problem doesn’t appear to be associated with any of the tune-up parts.
Checked PCV valve (open and sucking air while engine running, but closed when off)
Changed spark plugs (they looked OK, NGK iridium plugs with 20k miles on them)
Plug cables look fine.
Air filter looks fine

Added seafoam to the fuel (91 octane, doesn’t help) and crankcase.
Also delivered 5 oz of 50/50 seafoam/gas via the PCV.
This seemed to have helped it briefly (10 minutes) (however, that may very well have been optimism)


Thanks again for any advice. I'll be sure to let you know what the problem is as soon as I find out.

Whooa baby! You rev this engine to 3,500 RPM with no load and didn't want to try for more?? An engine with no load on it can easily get damaged by over revving. See that RED line? That's for when all is good and it's in gear with load on it.

Second trans going bad? Hmmm? Sounds like this vehicle gets abused. This engine needs a compression test to determine the mechanical condition of it. Repairs won't help for long without correcting operator judgement,

I didn't realize it was worse to rev the engine when it wasn't in gear. Good to know. Thanks. As far as the tranny, the first one was in bad shape when I bought it. I don't think I abuse it, and wouldn't normally rev the engine like that I was just trying to figure out if the oil pressure was being regulated.

As you can see I'm rather new at this. Maybe I should just forget about it and take it in before I do more damage than good.

Thanks for your help.

Just to follow up and so you know, the deal with RPMs is funky. It goes beyond automotives. Things need the resistance to stay stable. An odd example would be understood by many is the feeling you get when running down hill. You lose control of your legs but if you are strong enough you could run that speed up a hill. Most critters of the world can run faster level or uphill than downhill with no resistance - it's true!

As far as oil pressure: If an engine can't stay in at least the low end of the range at idle (say 650 RPM) then there is a problem. By perhaps 1,200 it's about as high as it's going to get. It is regulated not to go too high by a spring and by-pass which almost never fails to making too much oil pressure. That problem is almost unheard of.

You are hearing mechanical noises it seems and that with it not running well at RPM does suggest mechanical problems that could be so expensive you want to know before you go too far with the bucks when another option might be better.

Good luck with it,
