    You have to take it to a transmission shop or if you have a lift it has to be raised as if you where changing the oil, There is another alternative. You can check b y driving but your gonna have to be a little rough (really drive it) and listen to gears making sure they are not slipping!!!!

You can not check the transmission fluid as this car has no dipstick, The only to check the transmission fluid is to lift the car there is a plug underneath. The best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and let them check it!!!!!

SOURCE: lincoln ls transimission fluid

It is located on the transmission pan. Their is a "fluid level check screw" that you will need to take out. You aren't going to be able to just dump a quart of fluid in and be good though. These transmissions are designed under normal driving conditions to never have to be serviced and that includes the fluid. But if your like me, you like to hot rod it once in a while. Then you should change your fluid every 45,000 miles or so. The drain plug is at the very bottom of the pan. You are gonna need a little over 11.5 quarts of Mercon(R) V Transmission fluid for the 3.0 as well as the 3.9 liter. The amount of fluid needed for the transmission is the same regardless of the engine you have.
Hope this post will help someone in the future. Also their is no dipstick to check the fluid level. You have to take the screw/bolt out on the side of the Tranny Pan.

SOURCE: need to check the transmission fluid in my 2000 lincoln ls

Hello okiecouple, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

There is no "Dip Stick" on this Transmission. Instead, there is a Drain/Fill/Check Hole on the bottom back side corner of the Transmission. Below is a picture of it...

On these Lincoln Transmissions, for proper test results you need the vehicle sitting perfectly flat (in the shop, we have equipment to ensure the vehicle is perfectly level). I went ahead and made you up the Transmission Fluid Checking Procedure in .pdf format. You can download it by clicking HERE. I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesisitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

How do you add transmission fluid to a sealed transmission, 2002 lincoln LS


the transmission is sealed so you shouldn't have to add fluid unless there is a leak find the leak first to add fluid there is a bolt on the right side of the trany i think that's where you add the fluid but you will have to use a pump because of the angle.

Does the transmission fluid need to be changed in a 2002 lincoln ls


The transmission fluid and filter should be replaced every 30,000 miles if not once every two years. If you do most of your driving on the hyway , you can wait till 45,000 miles before you service the transmission. Good luck
