Sounds plausible that if the dipstick housing is broken, has a crack or hole that fluid could come out and drip on the exhaust manifold causing smoke. This works similarly to an oil dipstick, if you check the fluid cold and notice where the oil is on the dipstick then start the vehicle and shut if off and check the fluid again the oil will be higher on the dipstick (pressure).

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: when slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

How do you put transmission fluid in a 2001 Ford Excursion


first read your owners manual so you know exactly what type of transmission fluid and how to read the dipstick. Make sure you know the difference between the oil dipstick and the transmission dipstick. Buy a long narrow funnel at the parts store where you buy the fluid. It will have to fit into the transmission dipstick tube. Add fluid through the transmission dipstick tube. This is not something that must be done often, unless you have a serious leak somewhere. You are at 10 years, if your tranny is slipping, be prepared to get it rebuilt.

The van will start up and the motor runs but it will not shift into any gear?


First thing you need to do is start the motor and let it warm up to normal operating temperature and then remove the dipstick from the transmission and check the fluid level in the transmission(leave the engine running).If you don't see anything on the dipstick put in transmission fluid for Ford transmission until it reaches the full line.Now if the van moves the you will want to check for and repair any leaks that you have in the transmission,line or transmission oil cooler in front of the rad.

I have a 2001 ford windstar with the V6 engine, when traveling for a long distance I started to get Transmission oil leaking and when the car cooled down it was fine......I was told the filter could be...


Where is the oil actually leaking from? If it is from the bottom of bell housing the leak is from the oil seal on the shaft at the back of the torque converter. This is transmission out job to get at it. It is best to have this fixed as the low fluids that will result from the leak will result in poor torque converter performance and then to worn gear clutches ruining the whole transmission. As an interim measure it is possible to top up the autobox when it gets low by adding the right (really important that it is right) fluid via the transmission dipstick tube (NOT the engine oil dipstick tube).

2000 ford excursion v10 driving down the road


Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.
