Try replacing the filter on the transmisson also check to see if your transmisson cooler is plugged, you can do this by disconneting both cooler lines and putting air into one hole the air should blow out freely if not buy a after market cooler and install it.

How to flush ford falcon 4,0L engine automatic 1996 model transmission

I'm not familiar with your vehicle, however the principle is the same for virtually all auto transmissions.
Get underneath your vehicle and look on the transmission fluid pan. Somewhere at the lowest point you will see a drain plug.

The plug may either be a nut or a recessed square, or even a hex recess.

Undo the drain plug and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a large plastic dish/container.

The link below shows you generic images of drain/filler plugs. It is not your vehicle:
auto transmission filler plug Google Search

When drained, replace the plug.

Then look for the filler plug. It will be higher up on the transmission case than the drain plug. Again, it may be a nut or a recessed square/hex.

You then have to use bottles of transmission fluid to refill the transmission. It can be messy ... The small bottles of transmission fluid - they have small tubes attached - can be very awkward to turn upside down when you're under the vehicle.

Alternatively, if you have a a long tube and a funnel you can use it to refill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. It can take a while to fill it as the fluid is slow to go down the tube.

Be prepared to get transmission fluid everywhere ...

Replace the same amount of fluid that came out. Start the car and move it through its range of gears. Check the fluid level.

It's not a difficult job. The link below is an easy guide:
How to Add Transmission Fluid
The job is worth doing. It will extend the life of your transmission. Most people never bother. Transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 20,000 miles.

Where is the transmission dipstick located in a 2005 VW Jetta

There is no dip stick on this car, most of the newer Volkswagen did not come with one, the way to check the level is car will need to be on a car lift and level, engine at operating temp. then run through the gears and back to park, apply parking brake and raise car, on the transmission pan there will be a plug, remove the plug and if fluid drips out it is full if not then you must add, note ; make sure to use correct fluid.i would get fluid from dealer!.

I will enclose a picture of the transmission pan to show you how it works, there is a tube in the pan, when you remove the plug on the bottom of the pan it has a tube that sticks up and fluid flows all around it , the top of the tube is the correct level, so any fluid higher than tube will flow out. you want a small slow stream or dribble to come out. if no fluid flows out then you will add, to add i have enclosed a picture of the fill location, remove the cap and add slowly until it starts to flow out the bottom, do not put plug in until flow is slow or dripping, if you add a quart then run through gears again, and add more if needed,

You can try to do this on the ground, just make sure car is level and warmed up and you run through all gears, so to recap, warm engine and then go from park and go through all gears with shifter then back to park and leave engine running with e brake on and remove plug and add as needed until slow stream then install plug on pan and cap on the filler. hope this is helpful good day.5_18_2012_4_24_04_pm.png5_18_2012_4_24_12_pm.png

Where do u put transmission fliud in at

  • There is a little plug on the back of the transmission.
  1. Have car running.
  2. Place emergency brake on.
  3. The plug on the back of the transmission is I think 8mm. Just above the pan, remove it.
  4. If fluid comes out it is full. Plug it until next time.
  5. If fluid does not flow out then it is low. Using Mercon V Transmission Fluid and a funnel with a hose on it add fluid in that hoke until the fluid just barely seeps out the whole. Then it is full.
  6. Plug the transmission.
  7. Done.

Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Where do you check the transmission fluid

It's synthetic fluid and there is no dipstick , transmission sealed.
How to check fluid:
Warm up engine , raise vehicle on the lift with engine runing on park position , unscrew drain plug (don't warry it has tube in there ), if you see fluid coming out for 10-15 sec.- level is ok.
If nothing coming out - level is low.
There is a filler tube in front of the transmission with the red cap and red plustic sealing clamp.
If you able to take clamp out without braking it , you can reuse it after.
Fill transmission through filler tube with engine runing
and trany on park position , till fluid starts runing from drain plug , reinstall drain plug , reseal filler tube.

Where do i put transmission fluid in a 2002 Isuzu rodeo

As far as I have found the 02 Isuzu Rodeo does not have a transmission fluid dipstick you have to in fact go under your vehicle to check, change and fill your transmission fluid. Transmission fluid level: You will have two plugs facing downward on the larger trans pan. The plug higher up on the pan is the fill/level check (stamped/recessed into the rear right corner of pan). ATF should just dribble from this plug on a hot, idling truck, in neutral on a level surface. The lower one is the drain. The one at the back of the pan in a recess is the filler. You need a hand pump or something similar to fill it to overflowing then top it off with the engine running. Make sure you shift through the gears a couple of times when topping off.

Where is the transmission fluid filler on ford fiesta 1996 auto

You need a medium-sized funnel; or a specially-designed transmission fluid filler funnel with a short hose attached to it (at Auto parts store for $5)... use a medium-sized funnel....

The filler tube is the same as the transmission dipstick tube.
Check the fluid level with the engine running, in park.
before adding fluid, turn off engine.

Insert the funnel into the tansmission dipstick tube, slowly pour in fluid (slowly!)..

In an emergency, you can make a funnel with paper or cardboard or sheet of plastic. ... and maybe duct tape...

Hope this helps!

How to fill transmission fluid in a 2006 pontiac G6 Gt

There should be a screw on the front of the trani near the coolant lines. With the engine off you unscrew the filler cap. That's on top of the trani on the driver's side. It has a little gear in fluid symbol on it. Then you take out the screw on the front and fill until fluid comes through the hole left by the screw. Remember to use Dex VI.

How do you put in transmission fluid?

Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.

Gear fluid

Most automatic transmissions do not have a filler plug or cap. The transmission fluid is added by using a long-neck funnel, which is placed in the tube the dipstick for the transmission sits in. Be sure to test the level while the engine is running, with the transmission in either park or neutral. Be very careful not to over fill the transmission, and make sure that you have the right kind of transmission fluid for your vehicle.
