SOURCE: lincoln ls transimission fluid

It is located on the transmission pan. Their is a "fluid level check screw" that you will need to take out. You aren't going to be able to just dump a quart of fluid in and be good though. These transmissions are designed under normal driving conditions to never have to be serviced and that includes the fluid. But if your like me, you like to hot rod it once in a while. Then you should change your fluid every 45,000 miles or so. The drain plug is at the very bottom of the pan. You are gonna need a little over 11.5 quarts of Mercon(R) V Transmission fluid for the 3.0 as well as the 3.9 liter. The amount of fluid needed for the transmission is the same regardless of the engine you have.
Hope this post will help someone in the future. Also their is no dipstick to check the fluid level. You have to take the screw/bolt out on the side of the Tranny Pan.

First go to the part store and have them check for codes on the computer. Check spark plug and wires. Hook up a timing light to each spark plug wire and see if the light skips. If so then change coil packs.

SOURCE: where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.
Regards,

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak

checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

My 2005 Lincoln Aviator is making a strange sound while accelerating through lower gears.


yeah , the fluid needs to be checked, the dealer needs to pull the plug and check the levels and fill it accordingly, it my need to have a fluid change also. it sounds like a shift solenoid, but i would have the fluid checked out first.

Where is transmission dipstick Chevy cobalt 2005


according to wiki.answers.com
"Chevy Cobalt has a sealed Automatic Transmission... no dip stick. Probably best to take it in to get service by trans shop if you think it needs changing or re-filling."
Or
"There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly ontop of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car1.gif in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission, With the car running (WARNING: THE CAR MUST REMAIN RUNNING WHILE PLUG IS OUT!!!!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. AGAIN DONT SHUT THE CAR OFF WHILE IT IS RUNNING OR ELSE FLUID WILL POUR OUT!"

I had a leak in my 2005 Lincoln Aviator's transmission. I took it to the local Ford dealer. They charged me $50 to tell me the level was fine; it needed no addition of fluid even though I had some leak...


Couple of problems with the dealer here.1st where did the fluid come from?2nd if the transmission was not low the was it overfull?3rd did they charge you 50 dollars to check the fluid?hell I would have done it for 40.I understand that this tranmission has no dipstick I just think they should have some answers for 50 dollars.This is why people buy hondas and toyotas.I think you deserve to know where the fluid on your garage floor is coming from.Good Luck!

Lmy 05 aviator with 20000 miles overdrive light on dash came on as did the check transmission. after taking it into the dealer a solinoid was replaced in transmission. A day later the aviator did the same...


The trans problem was a straight up, misdiagnosis. A head bolt has nothing to do with the trans. It may have been damaged & later noticed? Do you trust who your dealing with?

the Aviator transmissions are "SEALED" units and have NO dipstick.
If light comes on better go to Lee Myles or wherever but Lincoln will rake you over the coals.

When slowing down , my 2005 aviator transmission


First check your tranny fluid levels.
If it is too high or too low this could be your problem and easy to fix.
If the levels are fine it could mean that it's either engine mounts,CV joint,U-joint...in this case you would need to see a mechanic.

Hope this helps.
