How to flush ford falcon 4,0L engine automatic 1996 model transmission

I'm not familiar with your vehicle, however the principle is the same for virtually all auto transmissions.
Get underneath your vehicle and look on the transmission fluid pan. Somewhere at the lowest point you will see a drain plug.

The plug may either be a nut or a recessed square, or even a hex recess.

Undo the drain plug and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a large plastic dish/container.

The link below shows you generic images of drain/filler plugs. It is not your vehicle:
auto transmission filler plug Google Search

When drained, replace the plug.

Then look for the filler plug. It will be higher up on the transmission case than the drain plug. Again, it may be a nut or a recessed square/hex.

You then have to use bottles of transmission fluid to refill the transmission. It can be messy ... The small bottles of transmission fluid - they have small tubes attached - can be very awkward to turn upside down when you're under the vehicle.

Alternatively, if you have a a long tube and a funnel you can use it to refill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. It can take a while to fill it as the fluid is slow to go down the tube.

Be prepared to get transmission fluid everywhere ...

Replace the same amount of fluid that came out. Start the car and move it through its range of gears. Check the fluid level.

It's not a difficult job. The link below is an easy guide:
How to Add Transmission Fluid
The job is worth doing. It will extend the life of your transmission. Most people never bother. Transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 20,000 miles.

I need to know where is the screw from the oil pan from the transmission of a ford escort lx 1991 1.9 l

There may not be a drain plug on this model.

Some ford transmission pans have drain plugs and others don't. Those without drain plugs are drained by removing the pan.

Delay in automatic transmission (at times)

1 Drain auto trans oil from g/box sump, remove g/b/sump pan and remove the filter as you might find the filter is faulty/dirty/or just no good and then either replace it or wash out in petrol and refit /refill test run.
2 Check the forward bands and pump on forward drive if bands are burnt or worn then the oil and filter will be dark red or brown and that means trouble.
Let me know how you go Ron

Second gear grinds?????????????

There Should Be A Plug On The Side Of The Transmission. You'll See The Head Of A Bolt On The Side Toward Top, Or Middle. One On Very Bottom Is The Drain. Now Just Look For Another Similar Plug. Make Sure That Year And Model Doesn't Take Automatic Transmission Fluid. If It Doesn't Go Away. Time To Have Rebuilt. Syncro's Are Going. Good Luck

My 2001 ford galaxy automatic does not at all go well i can be drive along and if i accelerate a bit harder it seems to slip out of gear and jump people have told me i need a new gearbox others say it...

what i would try first is a transmission flush. not just a transmission service where 3-4 quarts of fluid is replaced but all of the fluid. you could do this yourself and at the same time replace the filter. drop the pan and change the filter, then remove the bell housing plate and locate the drain plug on the torque converter. allow all fluid to drain. reinstall drain plug and pan, and fill with fluid. there are also some after market transmission additives that can restore some of the original ooomphh. good luck

Gearbox Change

HI Joseph

I also have a 4.0L Fairmont but a 1997 model. I had the gearbox overhauled by Armstrong Ford Pietermaritzburg who referred it to Gearmax- no problems since with the box- cost around R14000 in 2006.
