SOURCE: 94' Ford Probe Automatic Transmission fluid check question

The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.

SOURCE: I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.

There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

Ijust had parts replaced because my 2003 ford focus ideled way to high and drove way to fast now my transmission jerks me when driving does that have anything to do with it


Transmission can suddenly 'grab' when it/you changes gear. An automatic transmission can be sluggish to change gear if the fluid is dirty and needs changing. A worn/slipping clutch on a manual transmission causes the engine to rev high before the car picks up speed.

From your description it sounds as though there's a misfire or rough running with the engine which causes the jerking, not the transmission unit.

There's many things that can cause the symptoms you describe - the MAF sensor .. fuel starvation .. O2 sensor ..

Get a good mobile mechanic to look at your car - or take it to a workshop. I don't think it's your transmission at fault.

I have a2003 Ford Focus and while driving the car like revs up and finally when it takes off again it jumps into gear


I must assume that it has an automatic transmission.
Check the fluid level in the automatic transmission, adding fluid as necessary, and note the condition of the fluid. It should be RED, mostly translucent, and should have a slightly sweet petroleum odor. If it is brown, black, murky, or has bubbles, you may only need to have the fluid and filter changed.
More likely, the seals in your transmission are failing, and you may need to have the transmission internal seals replaced.

My ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.


Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

2003 ford focus... possible transmission problem.. or electrical?


Overdrive is a lock up within the transmission. The other "gears" are fluid and belt driven. So, could be that the sensor that allows the overdrive to "lock" is dirty/faulty. A transmission shop should be able to tell you in a heart beat.

What gear should a car with automatic gear be in to tow it?


It really doesn't matter because the front wheels have to be off of the ground to tow this vehicle if it has an automatic.
You can not flat tow this vehicle because the pump will not be working in the transmission and will burn it up because there will be no fluid flowing.

MERCON (R) Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX

CAUTION:
Using a transmission fluid that indicates a dual usage MERCON and MERCON V in a transmission application requiring MERCON, may cause internal transmission damage. The use of any fluid other than the recommended fluid may cause transmission damage. Some fluid labels may indicate dual usage such as MERCON and MERCON V. These dual-usage fluids are not to be used in transmissions that use only the MERCON type fluid. These dual-usage fluids may be used in transmissions that require MERCON V use.
