How do i find transmission dipstick for 2003 ford explorer

It does not have a traditional dipstick and tube. Ford changed over to using a plug in the side of the transmission like manual transmissions use.
There are some DIY videos on YouTube.

Cant find transmission dip stick , 5 speed manual.

The 5 speed manual transmission in your Focus doesn't have a Dipstick, the fluid level is checked by going under the car and removing a fill plug on the side of the transmission case, you then stick your pinkie in the hole and if you can just touch the transmission lube the level is correct. No Ford except automatic transmission models has dipsticks, and even those have been eliminated on the latest models.

I cant find where to check the transmission fluid or where to put it on my 2001 ford escape.please can you show me on a map or something where it is..

Ford came out with an a bad idea of not being able to check the ATF in some of their transmissions. the explorer is the famous one for it. If you have the 2.0 liter engine I don't think there is a dip stick to check it. If you have the 3.0 lter V6 engine it does have a dipstick and is located in the number 3 position (see picture below). Just incase you do have the 3.0 I want to mention that there was a recall for the transmission control module for that year on some of there vehicles. I hope you have the 3.0. Hope this helps and good luck.

I have reverse but no drive has a whinnig sound when cold 2001 ford escape v6 4wd

have you checked your transmission fluid on the dipstick under the hood? if so,then it should be full. look at the dipstick carefully to see the full level make sure if have to add fluid to the transmission that it is fomoco transmission fluid.if you have any doubt about the product,get a sales tech to show you which fluid you need for a ford transmission.there is a difference in the fluid.the whining sound you hear is from the transmission,you may have a leak.check where the vehicles parked for fluid on the ground,it will be red in color.if you do not see red fluid on the ground and the transmission is full of fluid,please repost your question with all the above information,such as full of fluid and reverse only. you may have a leak,which if fluids on the ground will tell you that much.but if it's full of fluid,then that's a different issue altogether.hope this helps and thank you for choosing

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.

How do you change the transmission fluid in a 2007 ford explorer? I've already drained it, can't take it to a dealer now.

if you drained it then you need to look in your owner's manual for the right amount of fluid that your transmission takes then put fluid through the transmission fluid dipstick. If you got any question plz feel free. Good luck

Checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22
