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: where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.
Regards,

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

sorry tac22,you don't. there is no dip stick .apparently,they don't want (or need)us bothering with that! i asked my dealer the same question and he said i didn't need to worry about the trans fluid. if you have transmission problems then have a "qualified technician"service it,but apparently,it is "maintainance-free". hope that helps!

SOURCE: 05 Ford Explorer Transmission

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

How to check transmission fluid level? with the engine idling or?


TRANSMISSION CANT BE TOO HOT AFTER DOING A LOT OF DRIVING.BEST TIME TO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID WHEN ENGINE COOL.TO CHECK FLUID LEVEL.CRANK ENGINE UP.LET IT IDLE UNTIL ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION GET WARM. WITH ENGINE IDLING.SHIFT TRANSMISSION FROM PARK TO LOW 1 GEAR. TWICE DO EACH GEARS AT ONE TIME. WITH TRANSMISSION BACK IN PARK.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD BE AT THE FULL MARK IF NOT ADD A PINT AT A TIME TO GET TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL CORRECT. DONT OVER FILL.

My car hesitates and roars by jerking into gear while accelerating and decelerating. What would be some reasons that this is happening?


The tranny fluid may be low. Check it when hot,car idling & in park. The tranny bands may need adjustment & check all vacuum lines for leaks. Good luck!

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..

Hi, i need to put water in my Ford Ka because the light is flashing and havent done it for a while. There are three tanks under the bonnet, one says power steering fluid so i assume its not that one. Then...


Hi, I'm not familiar with the Ka,but did the light go out after adding water? There are only 2 car fluids that are red. One is auto transmission fluid and one is a type of coolant. The transmission reservoir is in the pan, so I doubt you could have seen red fluid in the transmission without pulling up the dipstick. You can also try disconnecting the level sensor on the reservoir that you added water to. If the coolant light goes on and off when you short the terminals in that connector together (use a paper clip), then that is the coolant reservoir. My guess is you got it right.

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.

Where is transmission fluid located? Where is stick to check?


Transmission fluid is located inside the transmission fluid pan. It is checked and added through the fill tube. The dipstick is located under the hood. You have two dipsticks, one for engine oil and one for transmission fluid. On some models, the dipstick for the transmission fluid may be located under the engine cover in the cab of the van between the driver's and front passenger's seats. If you simply cannot find two dipsticks under the hood, it's under the engine cowl.

Where is the transmission fluid filler on ford fiesta 1996 auto


You need a medium-sized funnel; or a specially-designed transmission fluid filler funnel with a short hose attached to it (at Auto parts store for $5)... use a medium-sized funnel....

The filler tube is the same as the transmission dipstick tube.
Check the fluid level with the engine running, in park.
before adding fluid, turn off engine.

Insert the funnel into the tansmission dipstick tube, slowly pour in fluid (slowly!)..

In an emergency, you can make a funnel with paper or cardboard or sheet of plastic. ... and maybe duct tape...

Hope this helps!
