dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

oh the side of your transmission, above the halfway point, there will be a plug that you can open. (don't open the plug on the bottom of the transmission as that's the drain plug). When you open the plug, some fluid should leak out meaning it's at the right level. If nothing leaks out, pour some fluid in until it starts to run out and then replace the plug.

It is annoying when people automatically assume there is a dipstick and that we are all dipsticks for not knowing. There have been a few cars that have come out on the market in the last ten years or so that have no dipsticks for the automatic transmissions. I also have the same issue with a slow leak from the line coming out of the rad. There is a spot on the front of the transmisson behind the rad hose where you can put in fluid. When you remove this bolt, fluid should come out..if not then you need to add some. To add it jack the front of car and using a funnel add some fluid until it pours out when the car is level. This may take several attempts. If you over fill it just let some drain out into a pan until your at a trickle then put the plug back in. This is the only solution I was able to come across for this. It seems to be a common issue with these cars as it the problem of the lines rusting out and into the radiator making it necessary to replace the lines and rad,

It is located on the left side of the engine(frt view) remove the rad hose then the 2 bolts holding the housing to the engine and you will find the thermostat.
