SOURCE: When and How to check transmission fluid

if it is a manual transmission you have to check it from under the car by opening the fill plug. if fluid starts flowing out your full if not than you need to service it.

if it is an automatic it will be close to the firewall and hard to spot. but it is there. if you have 45,000 miles on it you should have the transmission serviced whether it is an automatic or manual.

Go to this website and pick owner guide on left task bar. Input vehicle info then get the owners manual.Your fuse panel info starts on page 120.

To replace lighter just reach around behind it and unhook connectors. The stick something in the socket(I usually use 2 fingers) and twist it counter clockwise. the center will screw out of the sleeve.

SOURCE: dip stick for the oil broke off and is stuck

SOMETIMES A SMALL POWERFUL MAGNET CAN BE USED TO EXTRACT THE STICK BUT REMOVAL OF THE OIL PAN IS ONE METHOD THAT ASSURES ALL REMNANTS OF THE DIPSTICK ARE REMOVED FROM THE OIL PAN. TRY FISHING THROUGH THE TUBE BEFORE RESORTING TO PULLING THE PAN. YOUR IMAGINATION IS A POWERFUL TOOL. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA.

SOURCE: Oil dip stick handle for Ford Focus ZX3 broke off.

Drill small hole in what's left inside the tube - insert bolt extractor - pull out dip stick. Material is relatively soft so drilling is easy. Buy new dip stick.

Where is the dip stick to check the transmisssion fluid on 2004 mercury mountineer


There's no dip stick on your truck, transmission fluid get check at transmission pan, on drain plug on the center of it, will have a small hex screw, with engine running in park, remove center screw, if fluid comes out, level is good, if no fluid comes out, fluid will have to be pump up through there, hope this was very helpful.

1997 mercury mountainer locked keys inside, need key code or where to find it.


key code is in owner manual packet on plastic or metal tag. your delaer can get it with VIN number and ID & registration proving you are owner of vehicle.

Possibly, you can take long thin screwdriver and slide it under outside door handle slot (lift handle) and move it around until you see inside lock move. then try to move lock/unlock rod.
