If it was the transmission light that came on then the first thing to do is check the transmission oil level as I think that transmission is actually a transmission overheating warning light. If it is the light pictured below this indicates an Engine systems fault and will need to be checked using a diagnostic scan tool.

Where do i add transmission fluid for 2004 mercury monterey


Transmission fluid is added through the dipstick tube. You will need a long skinny transmission funnel to not make a mess.

Transmission whines when cold and shifts on the edge


Sounds like it maybe slipping, try checking the transmission fluid level and add as necessary to full mark of near full mark, which is in the operating range, could do what I did with my windstar minivan, add in the Lucas Transmission Fix, for your Ford Taurus you'll need Mercon ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid ) unless its a manual transmission or differently specified which then will need different fluid, check the owners manual, repair manual or phone Ford and ask them for transmission fluid type. Keep in mind that the wrong fluid type in transmission and or wrong amounts ( overfilled ) or ( underfilled ) can affect the transmission's proper operation.


Also check your coolant, when coolant level is low the light will come on the dash cluster and add as needed, Fords usually use the green coolant,green colored coolant or could use the universal type coolant. Check the owners manual, look in a repair manual or ask Ford technician for the coolant type.

How can i find out what's wrong with the transmission in my 99' Chevy Silverado Z71?


Have you checked the fluid level? Plus the color of the fluid. It could just need a transmission fluid & filter change.

yes that is where you add CVT(continuously variable transmission fluid), I would check with the dealer before adding any regular ATF, make sure you have the right fluid before you ruin your transmission and are left with a hefty repair bill!!

suggest that you check your transmission fluid post haste please. you may only need to add transmission fluid to your car. also,if you have to add the fluid,where did your fluid leak? check for leaks under your car when parked. you may need transmission fluid and filter change,suggest that you do this with new filter and add lucas transmission treatment to the fluid change also. you'll need to purchase this yourself,unless you have a mechanic in the family that can do it for you.if not i suggest you find a mechanic you trust,then tell him,or,her to add this to your tranny fluid change. also suggest while the mechanics there at the transmission to check the modulator valve on the transmission,and the vacum line that operates it. just a hint. thanks for choosing fixya.com

Trans temp and od light is on what does this mean


Transmission Temperature light only comes on when the transmission has reached the operating limits and tells the temp sender to send a warning. The OD light is the Over Drive light.
There may be several reasons causing the Trans. Temp light to come on. The first would be if the transmission is low on transmission fluid.
Place you vehicle on a level surface. You can check this by letting the vehicle warm up to normal operating temperature, then open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick and wipe it clean with a paper towel or shop rag. Then reinsert it and remove it again, holding it horizontal look at the end of the dipstick. You will see a level mark and a add mark. If it's on the add mark then you need to add transmission fluid. Do not add more then 8 ounces at a time, before rechecking the level.
If the fluid is full, smell the fluid on the dipstick, does it have a burnt smell?
If the fluid has a burnt smell or it's a dark brown color then you will need to change the transmission fluid and filter.
The Overdrive light is on due to high transmission temp or because the Overdrive button has been pushed. ( If equipped with a manual overdrive button)
When the transmission is hot it will turn the overdrive off to increase the speed and pressure of the transmission fluid to help cool the transmission.
So this problem will go hand in hand if you find a problem with the transmission fluid.
You can also take you vehicle to you local auto parts store and have them check the engine codes. There may be another problem causing this issue.

How do i add transmission fluid to my 1996 camry?


If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point

Add transmission fluid


On 91 vehicles there's a 17mm allen screw on the side towards the left front wheel. Open it add the oil there on a level surface and fill till oil reaches the hole and starts coming out. DO NOT FILL OIL FROM THE TOP where what seems to be a plug. It's actually the timing marks and houses the clutch. Put oil there and you'll need a new clutch.
