You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

I have a1998 Ford Taurus that has a transmission that is pouring fluid out of the bell housing. When it gets to running temperature, it pours fluid out even after the car is shut off. Can I ask you what...

Looks like it may have too much fluid inside. But, it also has to have a loose fill bolt, if manual transmission, or dip stick if automatic, or the drain bolt is loose.

Have someone check to see which problem it is, and check the proper oil level and tighten the plugs.

Transmission stalls after it gets hot

This usually happens when the transmission fluid gets hot.

Transmission fluid gets hot when there's not much of it.

Check your transmission fluid levels.

If it's low, you can fill it by pouring fluid down the testing hose. Just make sure to get a funnel.

1996 Ford Taurus transmission "dumps " fuild

There are no guarantees when it comes to a rebuilt transmission or anything. They usually have a warranty for the work all depending on the mileage afterwards. Is it over it? Most likely the gaskets need replacing and the bolts tightened again.
