So you know, I am not insulting you. I don't know what you know or what you don't know. From your symptoms, I'm confused. If you pulled the trani pan down and the trani dip-stick still read "Full", you pulled the wrong dip-stick. Your transmission takes Mercon and you will need a narrow funnel that will fit inside the trani dip-stick tube. Follow the dip-stick tube all the way to the bottom and verify that it goes to the transmission. When you pulled the trani pan down you should have four or more quarts empty into your drain-pan. Until you can confirm that the the trani is properly filled, don't continue to use the car. Running the engine while the trani is empty can damage internal componants. If you have any questions, please write back, good luck.

SOURCE: 94' Ford Probe Automatic Transmission fluid check question

The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.

SOURCE: how to add fluid to a 5R55W ford transmission?

oh boy! good luck with that one! your right, there is NO filler tube (some idiot imagioneers not so bright idea at Ford), the only way to fill that trans. is through the filler/drain plug, it serves BOTH purposes! stupid? yes MOST DEFINATLY agree! you'll need to purchase a kit from the dealer (of all places) along with the use of (oops),
a compressor and a brake bleeder/filler kit in order to fill the case itself. You can atleast fill the torque converter manually before you install a new, or re-install your old one. I highly recommend replacing it as they too are a problem child as well (clattering noises from internal broken parts inside it). Sorry for the sarcastics, but this trans. is 1 of Fords engineers much BIGGER screw ups! Good luck! oh, p.s. make sure you use ALL new Mercon V fluid ( obviously the "new" trans., but the converter as well.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

1989 ford probe automatic suddenly refuses to engage into reverse.


First thing I would suggest is, you check the transmission fluid level in your car. If your fluid level is adequate, then you may need to have your transmission bands adjusted or gears and/or clutches within your transmission replaced.

After reading your question again, I am unsure if you shifter will not engage reverse or the transmission will not go into reverse. Nevertheless, if the transmission will not go into reverse, even after the car warms up, then your transmission may require a serious overhaul. Try driving your vehicle for several miles and see if it goes into reverse after warming up.

I have a 1996 ford taurus. when i stop it does not go back into gear until i press on the gas. when it runs it runs fine


Check the transmission fluid level.

Do this by turning on vehicle, shift through all gears 2x, then leave in neutral.

Pull the transmission dipstick out, clean it off, insert transmission dipstick and pull out again.

The fluid should be in the crosshatched area.

If it is low you will need to add ATF fluid in the dipstick hole.

Where does one dump in transmission fluid on this vehicle?


On most cars you put the transmission fluid down the same tube where you check the level. You want to ad just enough fluid, putting too much fluid in will do as much or more damage than running it a little low. On your dip stick there is an area usually mark min and max you want your fluid in between these lines. On most vehicles the difference between min and max is about 1/2 pint. There should also be printing on your dip stick telling you what type of transmission fluid to use.

My 1989 ford f250 belt broke and hit my transmission line relaced the belt and fixed the transmission line but Iam unsure of how much fluid to add ?


I am assuming that you lost a lot of fluid when this happened and that nothing is showing on the transmission fluid stick? If so, add fluid a little bit at a time until you see the fluid show up about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch on the stick. At this point you should be safe to start the vehicle, but have at least one - two quarts of transmission fluid ready to go in when you do so. With it running, add fluid until you get to the "Add" mark or the lower little hole in the stick. Stop and let the engine/transmission warm up to operating temperature. Once at temperature you can now adjust the level to the "Full" mark.

I put my '98 Ford Ranger into reverse and it did nothing. All the other gears worked except for reverse. It seems that I now have two neutral gears. Is there something that I can check before taking it...


Hi!

After vehicle has been driven a couple o miles, check transmission fluid level and condition (in park, motor running) should be of a pinkish color, almost transparent if looks darker, change fluid and filter. If level is low, check for leaks. Replace with manufacturer recomended type.

If your problem just started, there is a good chance to fix it following my recomendation.

Good Luck!!!

TRYING TO ADD TRANS FLUID CAN'T FIND FILL


The transmission fluid is added where the check stick goes into it. Remove the stick and place a funnel into the hole and pour the needed amount of automatic fluid (I believe it is Type F for Ford vehicles) untill it is at the full mark. Always check the level AFTER the car has warmed up and switch the gears a few times with your foot on the brake to move fluid around in transmission

95 ford probe se auto. trans. shifts back and forth from 3rd and 4th gear once on hwy. suspect o/d switch or speed/shifting sensors. any ideas?


I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0L that suffered the same problem. The transmission shop Techs insisted the transmission was blown and needed replaced. After doing some research it turn out to be the Park Neutral Switch also known as a Transmission Range Sensor right below the air box. The part cost 54 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it. About a year latter the problem came back. After doing some more research it turn out to be the VSS speed sensor. The part cost 57 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it.
