1997 F 350 is the E40D trans,and on a pan drop,the capacity depends on whether 2wd or 4 wd,but 5-6 quarts on 2wd and 7-8 quarts 4wd.Depends on whether the filter is changed also as it soaks up a good bit of fluid.On an overhaul with new remanned empty torque convertor,again,the capacity depends on the engine,as a gas engine torque convertor is a little smaller than the diesel engine convertor,requiring less fluid.These guys can quote factory manuals all day long,but i'll tell you from real world experience filling them up,they will take up to 18 quarts on a rebuild depending upon engine,torque convertor size,and 2 or 4wd configuration.I always install 15 quarts and then start checking the level with the stick.

Need to know where to add transmission fluid in a dodge caravan 2008

You would add transmission fluid type ATF-4 to the transmission at the place where the transmission dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment. If there is no dipstick but instead a plug that says dealer use only you need to take it to the dealer for them to check it. If it is low or the pan is leaking they may try to get you to spend $200 on a flush and fill but you could still do it your self for half of that. If you have the 4speed transmission (on the 3.3l engine) the filter is about $10 and it will take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. If you have the 6speed transmission on the 3.8l or 4.0l engines you will need to go to the dealership for the filter $30 and make your own gasket with RTV silicone. It will also take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. Make sure you have several hours for the fluid to drain and then a day for the RTV silicone to dry before refilling. Then have the dealer check the level again. Good Luck.

What type of trans. fluid does it take and how do i know when its full

Transmission Fluid Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Where does the transmission fluid go in my 2002 mercury sable automatic

Do you know where the dipstick for the transmission is? I assume you do if you know you need to add it. That is where the fluid goes. Stick a small funnel in the hole after taking dipstick out and pour the fluid. Remember don't overfill. Transmission fluid gets bigger when heated so always check when transmission is warm. Hope I could be of some help.

Have a 2006 cadillac STS 4.6l v8 rear wheel drive. I have a small transmission leak in the line from the radiator. I need to put some fluid in it for now. Where is the Transmission dipstick, or how do i ad...

GM transmissions are sealed so there is no filler hole
take it to an auto transmission specialist and have them check the fluid level and pump in more oil if needed
while you are there have them fix the leak

Just need to know what type to buy as far as trans fluid for 2004 Suzuki Verona?

ESSO LT71141 or TOTAL ATF H50235 Can only be purchased at your local Suzuki dealer as far as I know. But you for sure do want to use the correct fluid so get that fluid and nothing else.

How to fill transmission fluid 1999 isuzu rodeo ls

Lee2fixit doesn't know what he talks about on 99 Rodeos.

There is no dipstick tube - there are two access holes on the side of the transmission. The bottom one is to drain it out. The top one is to fill it back up. It is full when the fluid comes up to the bottom of the top hole.

Or you can take it to a dealer or service center to have it done.

First of all make sure you are checking the fluid right. Some people do not know that in order to check transmission fluid the engine needs to be running and the temperature needs to be sort of warm althought you should be able to get a good Idea just by the engine running. In this instance you might have a governer valve that isn't properly working to shift the engine when hydraulic pressure reaches a certain PSI. I would suggest having it flushed and put in new fluid and filter. If this doesn't work the problem is more serious and might need some professional assistance.

How do you put in transmission fluid?

Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.
