    2000 eldorado transmission problem

    I have a 2000 Eldorado etc that is having transmission problems. No reverse and limited forward gears. The fluid seems a bit high warm and has a burnt odor to it. My daughter was driving back on a trip when it was acting up and limped a bit. Is there ways to tell if its a module or solenoid before just replacing the transmission. Are there any known troubles for this particular transmission? Any help would be greatly appreciated.. I've seen posts referring to possible codes. Is that the obd and would the dash display some reason to get codes?

    The car has its own built-in code scanner. The DIC will "turn into" a code reader (as opposed to its usual message center function) with the proper button pushes. Study the proper year/model group of instructions in the sticky post just above this main thread - "How to pull codes". Write down any codes found and whether each is Current or History. Now go back to the sticky to open the link to OBD-II (OBD2) codes, decipher all found codes and post it all here.

    I don't like the poor gear selection and performance - that's usually internal fluid pressures and passages - the internal solenoids control 1-2 and 2-3 shifts, fluid pressure and torque converter lockup (TCC)

    In any event, dark fluid is cause for a change - probably to the new (2006) DEXRON-VI. The transmission is a dry sump unit- there should be NO fluid on the stick with the engine off. Check level with the engine hot (>10 mile drive) idling in P on a level surface.

    Page through Cadillac Tech Tips (in Discussions, Item Specific) for more info and How To (possibly fix it). Look through the other stickys ^^^, especially the Acronyms one - and always read the stickys in any forum of interest - it's all timeless info.
