Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
I have a 1996 Ford Taurus 3.0 v6. maybe i'm engine dumb but when i check the transmissiion fluid with the engine off, the fluid is full. When i check it with the engine running and hot it's very well below the full marking. is this normal.
Check the fluid as recommended by Ford. Do u have the owners manual? It will give the procedure. I'm quite sure your Taurus trans fluid is checked at operating temp w/ engine running, in park. U can also check the dipstick, Ford usually has the procedure engraved on the dipstick. The reason for checking the fluid as Ford tells u to, is because their method will give an accurate reading. As u can see from checking the fluid in 2 different ways, u got totally different readings.
