If its automatic there is no bolt, pull the trans stick and shove a funnel in the tube, make sure its the trans stick u pull and not the oil, also the vehicle should be running when u add, after u top it off run it through all the gears, 5 secs in each gear, so park, reverse, nuetral, drive, 2, 1, then do it again on the way back up to park, then check the fluid again....this is automatic correct? let me know how it goes

The bolt is on the driver side. Look for the drain plug, then look up and slightly to the left. You are going to need an oil pumper and its going to take at most 3 pints.

Sir, i have a 1991 ford pickup ranger. Is it hard to put transmission fluid into this pickup doing it myself. What do i need and what kind of fluid do I need. Mrs Jenkins. marjen09@windstream.net


if this is an automatic transmission you just put the fluid down the dipstick tube you will need a transmission funal to do this and the fluid is Dextron II.

if this truck has a manual transmission you will need to jack the truck up and put on jack stands and go under truck and on the right side of the transmission you will see a check plug that has a square head remove the plug and fill with 80w-90 gear lube till it starts coming out the check hole.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

How do i add transmission fluid into a 1993 Ford Ranger?


Automatic Transmission?

The fluid level needs to be checked with the engine running, the vehicle on a level surface, and the transmission in park. Remove the Transmission dipstick, wipe clean, and reinsert. Immediately pull it out again and check the fluid level. If it is not where it should be fluid can be added through the dipstick tube. A half a quart can make a big difference in fluid level so start small.

It will take a while for the new fluid to clear out of the tube to get an accurate reading after you add the new fluid.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1991 ford f150 standard transmission?


Add your fluid through the tube that your transmission dip sick come out of. Take out your transmission dipstick(make sure it is not the oil dipstick) put a funnel in the tube and add the trans fluid. Check the fluid when the trans is warm because trans fluid expands with heat and you want to make sure you don't overfill. Add small amounts at a time.

Replacing transmission fluid in standard


The manual transmission in the Ford Escort uses transmission fluid, it is checked and filled in the same hole. That hole is where the speedometer cable is hooked up to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable, set aside, then remove the locking bolt that holds the speedometer drive unit in place. Pull up on the drive unit and it will come out, look on the side of the drive unit and you will see the level indicator line for full and add. Fill as needed and reinstall the drive unit and cable. Hope this helps, let me know.

Clutch screams and grinds


try adding transmission fluid. if an auto there should be a line from under the hood, if a manual then you will have to add under the vehicle. find out the right fluid and when you are underneath look for the trans. there should be two bolts. One near the bottom, and one in the middle. Add to the middle one until the fluid leaks out the hole then plug it back up

Manual Transmission


Hello There

Your transmission fluid needs changing. There are two bolts on the transmission one directly underneath the trans for draining and aother one on the side for refilling the fluid, the one on the side is also used to top up the fluid.

If you haven't changed the fluid in a while then it's best to get it changed.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks
