: Tranny woes....

03-09-08, 08:24 PM
My 2005 ESV platinum was getting sloppy on shifts so I checked the fluid. Or the lack thereof as it turns out....I was 1.5 quarts low and the burn smell was not really confidence inspiring. It is much better, did a battery disco and it does shift nicer, but on kickdown on the free way it feels lick there is a lot of slippage.
any thoughts? There are NO leaks anywhere, so where the hell did it go???

Don't know where is went but 1 1/2 quarts low may have done some damage. :( Have you owned the truck since new?

that is what i fear.....I a thinking it is time to trade it. :D
I have owned the vehicle from 15,ooo mles. It now has about 70,000. I just don`t get where it went! It is dry as a bone everywhere, cooler lines ad all. :(

Nothing behind the trans as if a seal was leaking? Have you ever checked the level before now?
