Transmission fluid and brake fluid should be changed, but never flushed. Flushing can dislodge particles that can clog components inside the transmission or braking components leading to more problems. Transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles, brake fkuid when it gets dark or black in color.

I put brake fluid where my transmission fluid how can i drain it and change it cheaply without having to change trany


probably too late as brake fluid under the extreme temperature turns to tar in a transmission
Suggest that it may be possible to salvage the transmission but it will require a professional shop to do it and you will have to have it towed there
It will require a full flush with the engine running to remove the contaminated oil in the transmission, transmission cooler , lines servos and torque converter
The cost is mostly transmission fluid and will run out to be between $200 and $300 dollars
Put that against a replacement transmission $1000 dollars and it is cheap

What happens if I put steering fluid in brake fluid container?


That's a problem. Power steering is a heavy slick fluid, very similar to transmission fluid (my daughter's BMW actually takes ATF fluid in the power steering reservoir). Brake fluid is very thin, solvent-like fluid. I advise getting the system drained, flushed and refilled ASAP.

When my 1998 plymouth grand voyager runs a long time the transmission starts to have a hard time shifting or not shifting at all until it cools down.


How many miles? I'm guessing 150k atleast. A complete transmission flush/pan filter is probably your only option. Other than that, it is mechanical and needs to be rebuilt or the torque converter replaced, etc. Basically, if the flush/pan filter doesn't work, you probably need a new vehicle.

Put transmission fluid to brake fluid by mistake is there any help for this


If you have not used the brakes since, remove the master cylinder, and clean out the resevoir with brake cleaner. If you have, be safe and have your brake hydraulic system pressure flushed with new brake fluid. I would in this case, have it towed to the garage, as you don't need foreign fluid getting any furthur into the brake system, before you have it flushed.

Very difficult at times to get into gear on my 2007 grand vitara. At times when in gear cannot change gear at all but other times moves through gears freely. What is the problem?


if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.

Transmission fluid in brake system


Your braking system will need to be flushed (all of the brake fluid completely removed) and refilled. If left in the braking system, the wrong fluid could end up ruining the brake calipers, brake master cylinder, rubber brake hoses, and other brake components – leading to brake failure.
