Transmission warning ligth on dash board willnt go off
ok if it is indeed a transmission light...does your car drive funny in any way? since it came on? anything at all? some ford transmissions are know to have a falty transmission fluid level sensor. or your transmission is indeed low on transmission fluid. If you know where the transmission dip stick is pull it out with the engine on, wipe off and put it back in, wait a second and pull it out again and compare the actuall fluid level to where it should be according to the dip stick... remember do this with the engine ON that's the most important part of checking trans fluid levels since they work by pressure. If its low and it looks RED ...the fluid is good just need to add some. if the fluid is dark color ( if it's not bright red like blood) then im afraid you might have to go to a transmission shop. NOW if it's red and low go to Auto Zone and have them check the "light" and have them help you find the proper fluid for your specific model and they should help you add the fluid too VERY VERY IMPORTANT to get the right kind of fluid. SECOND VERY IMPORTANT PART..IF your fluid level is GOOD, the color of the fluid is RED (real red like blood nothing else!!!!) no any OTHER SHADE OF RED...RED!!!! ok? and it doesn't drive funny at all keep driving it and just have auto zone check the light ..just to see what its saying that is wrong. dont drive on low fluid.... just straight to autozone or you can damage your transmission.
