It sounds like the fluid pickup fell out, there should be a hole in the valve body about the size of your thumb that this unit will just push back into.

Stick tube removal automatic

You can access it by removing the sump but this will involve drain pans and maybe a ramp/lift. Don't get underneath on just a jack. Get jackstands. The plastic end will be floating in the pan.

How do I change the transmission fluid for a 1996 Ford Fairlane please?

Get to the parts store and buy at least 5, or more qts of type F or whatever fluid it calls for now days, and get a filter kit for it. Next saturday, get some cardboard, big pieces, and some rags, and a tub, jack the car up, drop the pan, if there is a drain plug, drain it first, then drop the pan, take out the plastic thingy floating in there and toss it, pull down the filter, replace it, change the gasket, no adhesive, and put the pan back up, pour in your 5 qts of fluid, and you should be all set. If it has a dipstick, fill it there, If not, you have to fill it on the side of the tranny. 2 plugs, bottom one is level, top one is fill. Hope this helps. If you want to purge the tranny of all 13 qts, you have to take it to a shop with a pump and pump it full,

2006 F150 Auto Transmission makes a grinding noise

this is a dust plug and you may discard this; this plug will be in the pan if this is the first time the fluid has been changed it is very possible it could be causing the grinding noise also see if there is small metal shavings in the pan and be sure to put the magnet in the same place it was when you put it back together
