Found little cream colored almost plunger looking thing in pan when changing franny fluid and filter dont know where it came from in tranny and car looses power after warm up

the thing you found is a plug that the factory has installed into the dip stick hole wile assembling the car, when the dip stick tube is installed they just push the plug into the transmission oil pan and leave it there it cant hurt anything, so when you service the transmission for the first time you find the plug and throw it away it is not needed, don't feel foolish you would be amazed at how many times i have been asked this question.

1996 ford station wagon LX ,transmission fluid over filled,only drives well when over drive is turned off. how do i drain some of the transmission fluid, and do you think thats the problem

Yes, too much fluid will give you overpressure in the tranny. If its a ford then you probably don't have a drain plug on the bottom of the tranny. You might have to remove several of the pan bolts on the aft edge of the tranny and let it drain that way.

How do I drain transmission fluid (2000 sable ls(dohc))?

On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?

1990 ford mustang lx 4cyl, auto blew out it's transmission fluid. what caused this? new seal and fluid, seems to be fine. is is okay now?

a Plugged vent on the tranny could cause this and an overfill of transmisson fluid could cause this, but without inspecting it would not know the cause or if it would strand you again?

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) !!!!!!

Mustang Transmission leak

it is possible it is bad. It is also very possible that the fluid is too low to work correctly. If the fluid level is right, Id say the tranny is no good.
