SOURCE: where is the transmission fluid filler on ford

You should have a dipstick under your hood labeled transmission fluid. you can fill it from there slowly. You can also fill up the fluid by removing the fill plug on the transmission itself. the fill plug will be just above the halfway mark

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.

Front wheel drive transmissions are usually check through the speedometer housing, then the fill level is checked by using the speedometer cable as a dipstick.There is a mark on the speedometer cable end.

SOURCE: 1990 Ford F250 automatic dumped all transmission

Depends on where the actual puddle is at if it was towards the front of the truck you may want to check for a broken transmission cooler line. If it was towards the rear check the rear seal of the transmission. There is also a front pump seal that could be the problem check between the trans and engine where they mount together and see if its not leaking there if it is then it would be the front pump seal.

Can you use atf+4 transmission fluid in a 1996 ford explorer

The transmission fluid you use should have a Ford approval number on the back of the bottle. If it doesn't, then any warranty done by a Ford Dealer on the trans since 1996 is void. Most trans have a 100K mile warranty when new and after any complete replacements. Using the wrong Spec. trans fluid will damage the transmission and always check the level when the engine is hot as ATF expands when heated. Mobil ATF D/M will work... Mobil Synthetic ATF won't in your Explorer! Ford comes with Exxon ATF from the factory and owners state that it's not the best.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...

How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

I accidently put automatic trans fluid in my power steering reserviour

Transmission fluid and power steering fluid are the one in the same. They are both hydraulic fluid. Only the red dye. Your vehicle will operate fine on transmission fluid in the power steering pump. Just don;t put power steering fluid in your transmission

Just need info about changing transmission oil in 1996 Ford Crown Victoria LX. I'm not familiar with type of Transmission oil to use and how many quarts it holds and location of the drain plug.

You will need to drop the trans pan to drain. In turn you will need a trans filter kit which will include the filter and gasket. As far as fluid, it will require mercon dexron auto trans fluid, and will take about 6 quarts. What I normally do is fill with 5 qts and check, then add half qt at a time till full, which is normally 6 qts.

A transmission service may solve this,check the trans fluid it should be ruby red and clear anything else and it needs to be changed along with the trans filter.
