Q: Transmission damage

asked by on

After I had the oil changed on my two-year-old car, it became a bit noisy. I went to the dealer who told me that differential oil was drained and replaced with transmission fluid, which caused serious damage to the transmission. The shop claimed that only the oil was replaced. The dealer thinks that something has been done after the oil change because it is a couple of quarts over. I haven't messed with the car and I don't know what to do. Do you have any advice for this situation?

A: If you have a manual transmission this shou...

If you have a manual transmission this shouldn't matter - both the transmission and rear differential take 75W-90 gear oil. If however, you have an automatic transmission, filling the front differential with CVT transmission fluid could be a real issue. I suggest you get a firsthand second opinion from a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic. They can tell you for certain if the correct type of fluid is in your differential and properly service your differential fluid as necessary.

Q: Can a mechanic tell damages that were inflicted by a car accident apart from usual wear and tear?

The best answer is yes. I would be able to tell since a part damaged from wear and tear will be worn and not bent or broken. If you are worried about the repairs then have more than one estimate...

Q: Transmission is shifting poorly, what’s causing this?

It is possible that this is a sign of impending catastrophic failure but not a guarantee. First, check to see if your vehicle is leaking any fluid and if so, verify the type of fluid. If you find a leak...

Q: I was just told my rear differential pinion seal was leaking when I got an oil change.

There is a seal that sits in between the two halves of your differential housing which keeps the oil inside of this housing from leaking. The oil inside the differential housing keeps the pinion gears lubricated. It depends on how...
