SOURCE: What fluid can I use to do a complete transmission

If you will look in your manual that comes with the truck in the maintenancechapter it will tell you what Ford recommends for the transmission fluid (should be mercron followed by a number).  You need to remember if you are wanting an actual transmission flush you cannot do it without the machine to do it with.  If you are just wanting to change the filter and fluid you can look in the manual for what type of fluid it takes and how many quarts it will need for a drain and filter change.  When you do it make sure you change out the transmission oil pan gasket.  If you are not fully aware on how to do this, when you go get your fluid and parts pick up  Haynes manual and it will tell you step by step on how to change it all.

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.

Where is the transmission fluid drain plug located on 2006 ford freestar

The videos indication you need an oil transfer machine which is a vacuum cleaner machine. The third link explains how to fit a drain plug to a Freestar. It is probably a job better done by Jiffy Lube or similar.

Ford freestar problems

Not enough detail in description. Does the engine run, but car doesn't move? If that is the condition it would likely be the transmission. Check the transmission fluid level, and try all gears selections in sequence. Park, drive, low, neutral then reverse. Have it towed to a shop or at least a safe place to do the checking.

Transmission oil coming out the funnel

If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.

How do I change the transmission oil on my 2005 Freestar

Most newer Fords do not require this, and most don't even have a dipstick for the transmission.
Ask your Ford dealer about it...
If you are set on changing it you must drop the pan, and measure the amount of fluid in the pan.
Pour that amount of new fluid into the pan, and then reinstall the pan.
