I am not sure on Land Rovers but to check automatic transmission fluid the car needs to be running, warmed up, and on level ground. Search the rear sides of the engine bay for a dipstick that usually has an orange or red handle on it. Once you find it the fluid should be red, if it is you have the right dipstick. Yellow handles are usually oil dipsticks so be careful. Your user manual in the glove box should have pictures of where its located.

I have a 2002 Land Rover Freelander that is stuck in Park. The stop light switch has been replaced with an autozone part, but it still does not work. The break lights are also not working.

This might help you. Otherwise, just find a mechanic you trust and have him or her check the brake light bulbs. It could also be fuse problems. Check the diagram for your lights or check your manual.

For your fuse box diagram:

Where is the location of the transmission dipstick on 2005 Land Rover Freelander?

As far as I know, there is none. My 2002 Freelander has a combined fill/level plug about halfway up the IRD unit (the back one) and a similar one on the gearbox. Put the car up on on lift or otherwise get underneath it with a torch to locate it. Fill (awkwardly) from the engine bay until oil pours out and, as long as the car is level, the oil level should be correct.

I have a thud noise sometimes when my freelander td4 2002 changes gear usually going from 1st to 2nd gear.. I think it may be a dif mount, also someone said to me about a fluid that may be low??? Anyone...

Have the u joints, transmission mount and half shafts inspected. These would be the most likely problems. Let me know what you find. I would use a trusted technician in your area to at least inspect it. If this is something you want to tackle, let me know that too.

How do you check transmission fluid on 2002 lanrover freelander?

Let the car run for about 10 minutes. You have to crawl under the car and locate the hex bolt on the transmission. You will need a 5 millimeter hex to unscrew it. If fluid comes out when you unscrew the hex bolt, then you are fine. If not then you need to top it off. Use LRN402 transmission fluid.

Is it true that there is no dipstick?

No such thing as "dipstick" on the Freelander.
Filler plug is located on top of the transmission next to two electrical connectors.
Level plug is located on the bottom of the transmission, next to the selector cable.
Use 5mm allen wrench to remove it, and fill the transmission fluid till it starts dripping from the level plug.
