The dipstick tube should have an o-ring near the bottom where it goes into the transmission case. Once you remove the bolt holding the bracket for the tube you should be able to pull the tube up and out. You should then have access to the o-ring.

You are leaking at the converter seal on the pump. Many times this a result of a larger problem and as trans needs to be removed to replace it, have converter neck checked for cracks and support bushing in pump checked as well.

How do you put transmission fluid in a 2001 Ford Excursion


first read your owners manual so you know exactly what type of transmission fluid and how to read the dipstick. Make sure you know the difference between the oil dipstick and the transmission dipstick. Buy a long narrow funnel at the parts store where you buy the fluid. It will have to fit into the transmission dipstick tube. Add fluid through the transmission dipstick tube. This is not something that must be done often, unless you have a serious leak somewhere. You are at 10 years, if your tranny is slipping, be prepared to get it rebuilt.

I found a little yellow piece with o ring in oil pan of an automatic transmission in an 03 ford econoline van


dont worry about that it is just a plug that is in the dipstick tube from factory. When they put the dipstick in it falls out and stays in the pan until you get a tranny service and change your fluid and filter

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.

While driving the car jerks and the rpms jumps from 2 to 3 and then back to 2. it seems like the trans. is slipping


hi,
if its an automatic transmission, it may need fluid. look closely under the hood for the transmission fluid dipstick, it may be somewhat hidden. check the owners manual for location. leave the engine running and put the car in park, sert the parking brake, take the dipstick out, wipe it off and replace. remove it a second time for your reading, it should right between the two marks, look closely on both sides of the dipstick the exact directions for the car may be written on it. if it doesent show any fluid on the dipstick, you can safely add 1 quart of automatic transmission fluid to the hole where the dipstick came out of using a funnel, check level again and add slowly now untill its right in between the marks. put a piece of cardboard under the car at night to see if its leaking and where. there are small transmission cooler lines that sometimes become loose that go from the transmission to the side of the radiator,study tighten those hose clamps down on the tubes. sometimes the ends of the flexible tubes become worn out, you can replace or cut off the bad areas of the tubes, reattach and tighten securely..
good luck

Ford econoline,2006 tranny slipping,wont shift


A slipping transmission, especially when you look at the oil on the dipstick and it is a very dark brown, should be headed directly to your local transmission rebuilder. The servos that keep the bands tight or the clutch pack engaged have worn and are leaking so badly that the pump can't keep up. The shifting problem is usually caused by a valve body that has gotten some crud in it - probably contaminated by all of the clutch material floating around in the oil. Good luck.
