SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: how can i check to transmission fluid level in 2005 ford explorer

Does not have a dip stick.

Start the vehicle set park brake

In the side if the transmission oil pan a bigger bolt with a small bolt in the center.

Remove smaller center bolt trans fluid should drip out at a fairly constant rate if not its low.

Hope this tip helps.

SOURCE: do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle

The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

On the bottom of the trans pan,there should be instructions.

You warm up the trans to 180 degrees or more,hold the drain plug with a 22mm wrench or 7/8",then remove the 1/8" pipe plug in the center with a torx bit.
If filled correctly fluid should just barely run out.

Capacity is around 12 quarts total.
You only get about four to four and a half, if you remove the drain plug or remove the pan to change the filter. Some extra will drain down while your doing the filter.
You need to have a special container that hold two quarts at a time, then you put an air hose to it,to pressurize,and blow the new fluid in,warm up,and any extra will drain back into your fill container.
I found on my Lincoln LS, you can fill it by removing the 3/8" tail housing plug. The other rear drive fords may be similar.

You want to get the old fluid out including your power steering every couple years or 30,000 miles.

I drained mine twice, ( 8 quarts),drove it two weeks to make sure it shifted okey,then repeated. (16 quarts total) I prefer that to a flush machine. I used to own a trans shop.

Use Mercon V and a bottle or two of Red Lubegard on final refill.
Use the power steering additive from lubegard with the correct P/S Fluid.
They are the only two chemicals I ever use on a vehicle,that I know ,not only work, but are necessary on some foreign trans.

If you look at the drain plug when it is out,you will see an extension tube. That is how the correct level is obtained with the torx plug out and fluid warmed up. You need the vehicle up on stands and level,so you can get under it.

Trasmission making noise in park


Most likely you hear the pump in the transmission

The valve most likely has worn out the bore it slides in
Only a matter of time before the entire unit fails, for any
number of reasons

ALL transmission & power steering fluids, get changed every 3 years on ALL Vehicles, or 25 to 30,000 miles, or they will fail

There are NO sealed for life transmissions in the world,pure
non sense

There is a check,change & fill procedure for every trans ever made

Changing the fluid now with that issue-- won't fix this noise

IF & ONLY IF you have changed the fluid at least twice before
100,000 miles,then change it now & add a bottle of RED LUBGARD---- NO OTHER additives--- EVER

06 Ford Freestyle FWD CVT Fluid Level Measuring (IDLE? or off?)


Hi,
According to the Ford shop manual, the cvt transmission has a transmission fluid dipstick located on the front of the transmission (drivers side between the radiator and trans. The fluid should be checked with the transmission temp between 190deg F and 198deg F ( I think hot engine covers it) running in park. The fluid should be in the crosshatched area of the dipstick. With the the transmission between 109deg f and 117deg f running in park the fluid should be at the bottom hole of the dipstick. This whole procedure is based on your being able to monitor the transmission fluid temperature. If you have a scan tool that shows you live data and you are able to monitor the temp, good. But if you don't own a scan tool and buying one would cancel out the savings of doing your own trans service................ then if it were me I would top off the fluid at the hot (190-198deg f) temp adding a little at a time until I was just near the top of the crosshatch area. I think logic prevails here. If the manual wants the fluid at the bottom hole with a cool trans then we must assume that when the trans is hot it wont be above the top hole. And I also want to add that if this fluid level was this critical then I would think I would have alot of freestyles going thru my shop with transmission concerns as soon as one sprung the smallest leak.
I really hope this helps you out and good for you for doing your own service, I admire that!
