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: how to add fluid to a 5R55W ford transmission?

oh boy! good luck with that one! your right, there is NO filler tube (some idiot imagioneers not so bright idea at Ford), the only way to fill that trans. is through the filler/drain plug, it serves BOTH purposes! stupid? yes MOST DEFINATLY agree! you'll need to purchase a kit from the dealer (of all places) along with the use of (oops),
a compressor and a brake bleeder/filler kit in order to fill the case itself. You can atleast fill the torque converter manually before you install a new, or re-install your old one. I highly recommend replacing it as they too are a problem child as well (clattering noises from internal broken parts inside it). Sorry for the sarcastics, but this trans. is 1 of Fords engineers much BIGGER screw ups! Good luck! oh, p.s. make sure you use ALL new Mercon V fluid ( obviously the "new" trans., but the converter as well.

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+.

SOURCE: 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!

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil


  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

Transmission warning light coming on,possible problems are low oil pressure or no oil pressure how do i check which one it is and fix it? Thankyou


If you have an Automatic transmission. Lift the hood. Locate the Transmission dip stick. Start the engine and let the engine warm up some. then check the fliud level on the dip stick. On a Manual Transmission, locate the transmission under the vehicle and the fill plug (upper) and drain plug (lower) on the transmission. Remove the fill plug (upper) and see if fluid runs out. If no fluid runs out, add recommeded transission fluid until the fluid starts running out, the replace fill plug..

How do i check tranmision fluid on a 2004 ford exployer xlt. It has no dipstick to check level or to add fluid.


On transmission pan drain plug will have a small hex screw in the center of drain plug, with engine running and in park remove little center screw, if fluid comes out, transmission level is good, of no fluid come out, will have to pump fluid in that same little plug hole, till fluid starts to come out.

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2004. How do you do it?


tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)
