You add transmission fluid through the dipstick opening for the transmission... you need a long neck funnel to do so.. they make a transmission fluid funel that you can get. Be careful not to over fill!

69,000 miles no problems until the car sounds like it's in neutral. no reverse, no drive. didn't slip, fluid level fine, no leakage just no transmission.[2004 ford taurus

Unfortunately that sounds like your torque converter is out! There is no way to engage it so that you can drive it to a transmission shop and you will need a tow. DON'T take it to AAMCO or another chain shop or they will tell you it needs a complete rebuild and charge you accordingly. Pick a local transmission shop that has good ratings from the BBB.

My 2004 Taurus SES with less than 56K miles, had a leak of transmission fluid In my garage. I took it to Midas and they couldn't find anything wrong. However, a transmission specialist on site told my...

I'm going to make an assumption that this car has an automatic transmission.

First, a transmission is just like a cup. It only leaks if there's a hole in the bottom. If a little fluid overflowed someplace you can't see and left a little spot once, I wouldn't worry about it. If it continues to do it repeatedly however, I would say forget that Midas and take it to a shop that specializes in transmissions.

It could be as simple as an O-Ring in a fitting that's cracked and needs to be replaced, maybe 1 hour of labor and a 50 cent O-Ring. If it's only leaking when it's parked, it's probably a pan gasket. A 2004 Taurus is just about due for a transmission fluid/filter service anyway, which involves replacing the gasket.

Without seeing it myself, I can only guess though. Take it to a transmission specialist or a Ford dealer that's guaranteed to have a good eye for what's normal and what's not on your car.


If it isn't getting any worse, and you don't mind living with it how it is, just make sure the fluid is at the correct level. Learn the *correct procedure* for checking it from your owner's manual, check it frequently, and keep the fluid right where it's supposed to be. Just do that, and you'll prevent it from getting seriously damaged.

The transmission in my 2004 taurus went out all at once what could be the possible cause

Check the fluid level first.

The torque converter could have failed. But, the transmission should be checked out at a transmission repair shop to be sure.

Transmission started slipping in final drive.

I am a ford tech and once this transmission starts slipping in OD u are going to need an overhaul, changing the fluid won't correct the problem.

most likely due to a stripped out torque converter or a broken pump shaft. trans. has to come out to repair either or. you should make sure the fluid is full first. with the car running and warm, check fluid- if it seems over full, the pump shaft is broken, if it's just full- probably the torque conv., if its low add trans. fluid (mercon 5) 1 qt. at a time until in crosshatched area on the dipstick. hope this helps and good luck

Can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus

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.
