SOURCE: how to add or check transmission oil

this t-bird has a 5r55s trans. it does not have a dipstick.
it has a "standpipe" type leveling system.
to check fluid level the tranmission has to be within 80-120 degree f.
take the plug out of the center of the fitting located on the bottom of the trans pan. it is a torx 30.
running in park the fluid should drip slower than a coffee pot.
to add you need a npt thread fitting the same as the little plug you removed. and attach a bottle of mercon5 and hose to it. squeeze the bottle to add fluid
then recheck it by letting it drain out to a fast dribble. then install the little plug back in.ead6e26.gif remember 80-120 degree fluid temp.

SOURCE: transmission fluid leak at speedometer

The problem is the speedometer drive at the transmission it has a worn seal that causes the cable to bring the oil out of the transmission and up the cable to the speedometer head. You have to replace the speedometer adapter (inner seal) at the transmission.

SOURCE: transmission leak

you most likely have overheated the trans. and it has blown the fluid either out of the vent on top or out the dipstick tube its self. most cases just a top off and you should be good... there is also a tsb on re-routing the vent tube so it doesnt clog as easy

Toyota Corolla 1995. Quality of air conditioner reduced when stopped (traffic light) or moving at slow speed (condenced city traffic) No problem on the highway. Checked freon gas and fan. Understand that...


Normal, the ac heat exchanger condenser need air moving across the fins to remove the heat. While moving in town the condenser isn't remove the meat that is building up the it's aluminum fins. Even though the vehicle uses an electric fan. The fan is used to cool the engine temperature. If you Toyota is equip-ed with automatic transmission. The electric fan will need to pull enough air to cool the engine temperature, automatic transmission fluid, air conditioner condenser, and maybe power steering condenser to cool the power steering fluid. Later model of vehicles/trucks are using different refrigerants instead R134A in which you Toyota uses.

The simples way to explain is the ac remove heat from inside your Toyota and this heat is removed by the refrigerants inside your ac in the car. To cool the refrigerant this coolant is removed to the heat exchanger condenser located in front of the engine radiator. So, while moving at 60mph there is enough air flow through the radiator, ac head condenser, and other aluminum heat exchangers. GB...stewbison

There are a few things to check before I recommend a 2nd opinion. If you have a cabin air filter, check that it is not clogged up with debris or very dirty. Also check that the electric fan comes on as soon as the ac is commanded on. It has 2 speeds (high and low) and it will automatically go to high speed when the AC compressor cuts on to cool off the condenser. Also check that there isn't anything blocking airflow from the front of your vehicle to your radiator/condenser area. Last thing to check would be taking it to a shop that knows what they are doing (it'll probably cost $60+) and make sure your system is fully charged and have them add dye if it isn't so they can locate the leak.

Transmission fluid is leaking from the air conditioner condensor - however i am having trouble figuring out exactly where it is coming from (from a hose or from the condenser itself). The fluid has...


The transmission fluid is not coming out of your A/C Condenser for that only carries freon through it on the High side of your A/C System. I may be mistaken, but the condenser is mounted on the right front side (or passenger side) of your vehicle. Insofar as your transmission fluid leaking, there are two lines that go directly to your Radiator, either bolted straight in or at times, have a hose with clamps going down one of the tanks of the Radiator. Usually it's on the Driver's side front. This enables the transmission fluid to cool within the radiator before it returns to the transmission pan. It's a sealed "little radiator" within your Radiator, so if it's not leaking from one of the lines, then follow the lines (through the grille), and see if you have an "air-cooled" transmission cooler in front of the Radiator or Condenser. If your vehicle came with a Trailer Towing Package, then this "cooler" will be in front of the Radiator or Condenser at the lowest point. (it also goes through the radiator as I explained above). If the rubber lines are leaking, then it's pretty simple to replace, BUT you have to use Hoses that are meant for carrying oil or transmission fluid. "Normal" hoses will work for a while and then deteriorate causing the leaking problem again. The last thing to check is your transmission's dip-stick. Yes, if that's pulled up and not seated fully, one of your fans could be spraying the transmission fluid everywhere. Also note, that there's a "vent" in the transmission's dipstick that can be cleaned with compressed air. The purpose of the dipstick having a vent on it is to allow built up pressures to vent to atmosphere
(like your PCV system does for the Engine).

I hope somewhere above, you'll be able to find the solution to your problem.

Best of Luck,

Transmission Fluid explodes out under hood.


this year of van had a recall for the transmission because the second gear was getting too hot. It required a dealer to install a special part that spliced into the transmission cooler lines and dumped fluid down the transmission fill plug hole and onto the second gear. Perhaps under high speed, the slice is leaking. Check to see if you have this part and see if the splice clamps are loose. If so, tightening them may help.

Shifting problems when hot


These kinds of problems are common on the dodge mini vans, I think you will need to overhaul the trans, it has an internal fluid leak, one other thing to check is the electrical connector to the trans, make sure it is tight and has no corrosion or fluid in it, a poor connector connection can also cause these kinds of issues hot.
