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.

Where is the transmission stick to check the transmission fluid? thank you


If it has a tranny dipstick it would be on the side of the motor. Should have a red handle. Not many of these models have a tranny dipstick. Most you have to lift the car and pull the upper filler plug from the tranny with a 1/2" drive ratchet wrench. Then you can stick your finger in the hole and see if the tranny fluid is equal to the hole. You should be able to stick your finger in the filler hole and feel the fluid. If not, filler her up so the fluid level is just below the filler hole.

The car will not shift into another gear it seems like, it accelerates really slow, does get to about 30 given time to speed up, but if peddle is pressed down to far the RPM's just red line. I have turned...


hi
your automatic transmission may be extremely low on fluid. check the automatic transmission fluid. go get three quarts at auto parts store type dextron II or equivalent.. make sure you get the right type. open the hood, start looking for the transmission fluid dipstick that it shows in the owners manual. if not it may be listed on the dipstick in the engine compartment. start the car set parking brake and check the dipstick with the car running. pull the dipstick out and wipe it off , replace, take it back out and look at the end of the dipstick. there should be fluid on the dipstick and it should be in between or right at the top line. the tranny fluid goes right in that dipstick hole you pulled the dipstick out of it takes a special funnel, theyre usually red, you can pick that up at the auto parts store too, tell them you need a funnel that will fill up the tranny fluid with a tiny end. theyll know. If theres no fluid showing on the dipstick you can safely add one quart of fluid and then let it run a minute and check fluid again. now fill in smaller increments at a time (1/2 cup) untill the fluid shows in between the lines on the dipstick. put a piece of cardboard under the engine overnight to see if its leaking and where. it may need a new gasket or the tranny cooler lines are leaking, study whats loose on the lines or get a haynes or chilton manual and put a new tranny pan gasket on it. its not too hard , just takes time and patience. if theres tranny fluid already in the car I suggest taking it in to be put on a computer for further diagnosis, but this may get you going.
good luck

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

How much tranny oil capacity for Chevy silverado 2500 1989. The hose to the transmission came off and all the transm. fluid came out. I have replaced the fluid, but it isn't shifting very well anymore. ...


should hold roughly 8 quarts with the converter still full. Run the trans through the gears to get it warm, then check the dipstick while running. I would bet its still low.

No dipstick to put transmission fluid into


HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.
