Question Please Don't Say Tranny's Fried.

I have a 2000 V6 auto. The car has about 173,000 miles on it. When I bought it used in 2012 a used transmission was put in car right before I got it. The other day I started my car and went to shift from Park to Drive and when it passed thru Reverse it jerked and made a clunking noise. I was like wtf ......that doesn't sound good. I noticed it only did this after warming up. I drove it again and it had been raining and I noticed that when in Drive it would sometimes act like it was in Netural and the RMP's would rise, but the car wouldn't go anywhere. Pulled fthe dip stick and the fluid didn't smell too fresh and was a quart low. I put fluid in and when I went to drive it. The gears wouldn't engage unless I turned the motor off and then restarted the car. Do you think the transmission is fried? Or maybe a flush or band adjust could fix it or something? Got any ideas? Please?

I think your gonna need to get it to a reputable transmission shop to have it checked out. Based on my experience and what you are describing you may be looking at having it rebuilt.

Oh man, unfortunately this isn't sounding so good. I have an '02 Dodge Ram 1500 automatic with only 67,000 miles. Have it for 13 years. I never abused it, changed tranny fluid in the past, and had some issues like you described. Ended up needing the transmission replaced recently, $3,000. I learned that this was a somewhat common problem in the late 90's into early 2000's of Dodge's. Got a Jasper transmission, should last me now for many years.

Low fluid plus age means that the internal hydraulics tend to overheat. I wouldn't be surprized if it simply stops running altogether in a few days. At least save yourself a tow and get it to a shop while it can still move.

I did a filter change and put some Lucas in the transmission. It now goes into gear but you can fell slippage and there is no overdrive. Do you think a solenoid could be bad or plugged?

If it can't be FRIED, how about BROILED, GRILLED, Crock Potted, Steamed, Microwaved, Grilled or like Sushi, eaten raw.
