On the bottom of the trans pan,there should be instructions.

You warm up the trans to 180 degrees or more,hold the drain plug with a 22mm wrench or 7/8",then remove the 1/8" pipe plug in the center with a torx bit.
If filled correctly fluid should just barely run out.

Capacity is around 12 quarts total.
You only get about four to four and a half, if you remove the drain plug or remove the pan to change the filter. Some extra will drain down while your doing the filter.
You need to have a special container that hold two quarts at a time, then you put an air hose to it,to pressurize,and blow the new fluid in,warm up,and any extra will drain back into your fill container.
I found on my Lincoln LS, you can fill it by removing the 3/8" tail housing plug. The other rear drive fords may be similar.

You want to get the old fluid out including your power steering every couple years or 30,000 miles.

I drained mine twice, ( 8 quarts),drove it two weeks to make sure it shifted okey,then repeated. (16 quarts total) I prefer that to a flush machine. I used to own a trans shop.

Use Mercon V and a bottle or two of Red Lubegard on final refill.
Use the power steering additive from lubegard with the correct P/S Fluid.
They are the only two chemicals I ever use on a vehicle,that I know ,not only work, but are necessary on some foreign trans.

If you look at the drain plug when it is out,you will see an extension tube. That is how the correct level is obtained with the torx plug out and fluid warmed up. You need the vehicle up on stands and level,so you can get under it.

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 do you add transmission fluid to 2007 450 GL Mercedes?


This is only a guess. I don't know anything about Mercedes. try the transmission dipstick hole. Generally all cars use the transmission dipstick hole to add transmission fluid. That is why the tranny dipstick is slightly larger than the oil dipstick. Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

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

Can i add transmission fluid to a mazda b3000


Just like any other car/truck, check tranny fluid while engine is hot and idling and check the transmission dipstick. Add fluid as needed into the same hole as the dipstick using a funnel. window.onbeforeunload = function() {}

Where is the location for the transmission fluid on a 2000 oldsmobile alero


In the transmission pan underneath tranny. You should have a red dipstick on passenger side to check. Not all models have a dipstick, some you have to go under car, find the upper filler bolt on tranny, remove the bolt, stick your finger in there to check tranny fluid levels and add from there. You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual for your car.

How do i add transmission fluid to my 1996 camry?


If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point

Where do you fill the automatic transmission?


If you have a tranny dipstick, then you would need a long tranny type funnel and fill there.
If you do not have a dip stick, then you would have to raise the vehicle, and look at the tranny. There will be a higher and a lower plug on it. Remove the higher plug and stick your finger in the hole. If you feel fluid, then it is full.

How to add auto transmission oil in 2005 mits montero


The Fill point is the Tranny Dipstick Tube, If you do not have a Dipstick Tube to Check the Tranny Fluid, You will need to get the Tranny Serviced from the Dealership or a Transmission Shop. On most of the Newer Imports they are ALL going with a Non Servicable Transmission that has to go in for Service. I know, It is REALLY Stupid! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Cannot locate the filler plug for the transmission. need to know where to add tranny fluid to


usually there is a dipstick for the tranny fluid. if you can find that you add the fluid through there with a funnel. other wise you will have to look on top of the tranny for a check plug.
