Hello, my name is Robert, please read the comments in the About section of this video. It has valuable information and updates. My YouTube channel has a disclaimer video that I recommend you watch and like, share and subscribe. I hope you find what you're looking for. Thank you very much for watching this video. I want to give you my

opinion

on

transmission

s, whether or not you want to repair

them

or whether or not you need to flush

them

. Do a

fluid

exchange. What kind of

fluid

to put in things like. That's one of the reasons I want to bring you this video is because my main controller, model 85095, which I call Panther, has damaged its second

transmission

.
my opinion about transmission fluid servicing them and why they fail   votd
I know the transmission is bad and needs to be replaced because I overheated it, overloaded it, overloaded it, and the The reason you can tell is because you can check the fluid and see what the fluid looked like yesterday. I replaced the car's radiator. I had to drain some of the transmission fluid because the transmission has an SL heater that runs through that radiator. and the fluid looked horrible so I recommended the lady change that fluid. Most automakers are adding what

they

call Lifetime transmission fluid. Basically what that means is

they

put fluid in there that they don't want you to mess with because I don't want the transmission to

fail

while the car is under warranty.

If they thought the transmission fluid in the transmission would last forever, they would give you a lifetime warranty with unlimited mileage on the transmission. Well you don't see that in many vehicles including These Volos that I like to drive these cars have a transmission that has lines connected to the radiator. There's one of them there, that line comes from the transmission to the radiator. There is a bar that runs from the top of the radiator to the bottom. The radiator that the coolant runs through helps heat up the transmission fluid a little faster to help the transmission fluid maintain a temperature that is relatively close to the temperature of the antifreeze, which is why they call it a transmission cooler.

I actually call it a heater. cooler on these transmissions when my transmission started to malfunction, I studied a lot on different publications and websites about transmissions and the conclusion is that a transmission can last a long time; However, once the fluid overheats, that fluid becomes contaminated and damages that transmission. it starts to break down at a much faster rate at one site, the transmission mechanic actually said that most transmission fluids start to overheat or burn around 210°F and every 5° hotter than it gets hot, That fluid drastically alters its ability to lubricate and clean. Transmission parts shrink dramatically and if you overheat a transmission by 20 degrees, you can cut the remaining life of that transmission in half.

For example, my wife and I were traveling around the country helping people. I went through the uh uh I I I don't know. if it's uh they call it De Valley in California, it had a constant uphill grade, maybe 4% 3%, it was very hot, over 100°, they had warning signs along the road telling people to cut off the air, to take it easy. your car because they didn't want your car to overheat and get stuck on that road and of course me and my excitement, I went through it, the car was overloaded with equipment and tools, we went up that hill driving most of the way. my car's engine actually warmed up to around 230 235° at any other time the temperature rarely gets to around 200 on the highway with that excessive temperature uh in my engine my transmission heated up too I drove another 3 4,000 miles I got there home I checked My transmission fluid burned a little so I drained it and put some new fluid in there but I didn't get all that bad fluid out probably like I should have so I kept driving with bad transmission fluid now .
I have heard of these cars having transmissions that last over 500,000 Mi. Here I was on my second transmission around 3:25 3:30 and needed to take another road trip, well my plans were to install a transmission cooler. and replaced all the fluid. I couldn't figure it out, one thing led to another and I left and went on another road trip that took another five 7,000 miles with that bad transmission fluid in the transmission. Luckily for me, God had mercy on this and we made it through. I came home without any problems, however a week or a week and a half later I was on a small local trip and the transmission started to malfunction.
Check the fluid. It's bad, so I drained some and put in a new one. I've been limping along since then here are a couple of good things according to the owner's manual: Your transmission takes about 30 minutes to fully warm up so if you drive around town 10 15 20 up to 30 minutes your transmission never peaks temperature now because it's connected to your radiator as soon as your car warms up 5 10 minutes max your transmission fluid is now warming up with that hot coolant on the side of your radiator now the goal is to get the transmission fluid nice and fast to make the transmission work very well and then prevent the fluid from getting too hot and burning which some of these sites say is over 210°, while driving around town my car flirts around 216 and cools down again . go down to 210 or 206 going back and forth with the coolant fan to help maintain that temperature, that transmission around the flirty 210° superheat temperature I guess I need to make a long story short, I can't do it anymore. from what I have, what you want to do is pull the transmission dipstick and you want to see what the fluid is like in the transmission, as you can see on this dipstick, this transmission fluid is brown at best , has no redness. probably burned out or has been flirting with that overheat temperature, this car needs its transmission fluid replaced so I would recommend changing this transmission fluid as soon as possible number two if you know that your transmission due to its driving conditions causes it to get hot or your To get in or do things like that you may want to change the transmission fluid more frequently, for example I had mine on a 50,000 cycle My every time I tow I change it at 25,000 Mi, that was probably good now if you have a situation where you're constantly on your mind warming up this transmission or you're towing or things like that that will cause it to heat up.
You may want to install what they call an external transmission cooler and bypass the radiator or put it in series with the radiator so your transmission will cool down, luckily overheating transmissions is a very common problem with the white block volel here I'm looking at the transmission lever on my red block Volvo, let me pull it so we can see the fluid in it. now on the left is the fluid coming out of my 850, on the right is the fluid coming out of my 740, these 740's rarely have transmission problems and as you can see that fluid is much closer to the real red Su, here is my recommendation, get some of your car's transmission fluid, either from the dipstick or from that transmission somehow, put it on a white cloth if it looks brown or close to black, as you see on the left , you should replace that fluid as soon as possible if it is pink or a little reddish like you see here in the middle, you may want to consider

servicing

it at some point in the future and the transmission fluid is bright red or pink on a towel white paper or something like that.
I would leave it like this, it's probably fine and I have Shown what the transmission fluid looks like coming out of these Volos, it looks pretty similar to this, which I think is actually motor oil, but it should look a nice red color, like this that if you scoop out some liquid and it looks this dark, you're definitely going to want to get it. takes it out of your transmission, the sad thing is that the mechanics who service these voles see this dark liquid a lot and it doesn't alarm them, it really should be alarming, but it doesn't, you don't want to take your car just anywhere To get transmission service, you want to take it to a place that is very familiar with replacing fluid in your transmission, whether it's the dealership or a specialized shop for your type of cars, because if they hook up your transmission to a machine and turn on a power unit. flush your transmission and they start flushing in the wrong direction, it will destroy the transmission if they flush in the right direction, it is perfectly fine to replace all the fluid in your transmission even if your transmission has 2 or 300,000 miles on it if your transmission is working fine, its ok to replace that fluid of course vehicles have two types of transmissions they have an automatic transmission or they will have a manual transmission some of them have some type of mixture but actually that is an automatic transmission the benefits of having one manual transmission is that it does not have a thousand parts inside and it also has a fluid that can withstand much more heat.
Automatic transmission fluid again starts to cook and burn at about 210°, so when you find out that you are going to change your automatic transmission fluid, do your best to stick with the recommended type that is in your owner's manual. . Also try to find out if there is a fully synthetic version of that transmission fluid, that way you will have fluid in there that you can possibly take. more heat, your standard transmission fluid probably cooks around 210, a fully synthetic transmission fluid can start cooking around 240, so you have a better chance of that fluid absorbing heat, so if you have any questions, post them Again, if you have a car where the transmission gets a little hot, you may want to install an external transmission cooler.
