Surely the rod or rod cover is not appropriate for your car, the minimum amount of fluid in an automatic transmission is 8 quarts

Some of them have an oil plug at the front of the pan, as well as the regular one. You have to drain them both. The front one only holds a quart or less.

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.

As for obtaining the dipstick. You might try Napa. If not Napa, then a Ford Dealer. I doubt the dip stick is the end of your troubles here, though.

Just remove the hose,measure the inside diameter and buy the correct size and type hose, Get an extra foot to work with. Now --Trans Hose is not fuel hose. Most Auto Parts Stores don't carry the correct hose. Go to a trans shop or trans supply house. Also ,you can use Power Steering Hose-same stuff. If the hose is cripped to the long lines you mentioned,just remove them ,so you can work on them ,while cutting off the furrel. Just don't cut into the aluminum line.

Automatic transmission 1998 Subaru Forester. I drained the fluid and put new in. Now it is full to the top of the dip stick spout but acts like it isn't getting down to the pan.


did you drop the pan to change the filter? if you drained the fluid and you can get the stick into the tube all the way. i would say the tube is not clogged. you should know how much you took out and the trany only holds so much. check the manual for the correct type and amount. if the fluid is over full that is a problem and will need to remove some. when i add fluid i put in a couple quarts and start the car and cycle the fluid only a couple seconds 15 to 30 not mins or hours the turn off add another till i think its close to what i took out. start car cycle some more repeat till you think your close within a quart to being full. at that point you can keep the car ruuning and check the fluid and keep checking the mark on the stick. if it wont go down the tube. you may have something blocking the tube and removing the pan again or tube to see whats blocking the tube is your only option.

Where is the drain and fill plug on the transmission of a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle automatic transmission


To drain the fluid just drop the pan and drain it that way. Replace the transmission filter and then reinstall the transmission pan. Find the dip stick tube and fill the fluid through that. I'm not sure what engine/transmission you have, so you'll have to look in your owners manual and see what the amount is.
Measure the fluid you drained and match it to the mount the manual and make sure its close.
When filling the fluid put in all but 1/2 quart. Start the car and get it up to operating temperature. Place the car in neutral and read the fluid on the dip stick, add more fluid if needed.

Good luck

Where do I add Transmission fluid on a 95 ford Probe??


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.

Change transmission oil


Hi Peter, If your Camry has an automatic transmission, for normal driving the auto fluid should be changed every 40,000km, there should be a drain plug on the transmission pan that takes a 10mm hex drive or 17mm socket to undo. You have two choices after driving the car onto ramps or jacking up and supporting on jack stands so you can safely get under the car. 1 - You can loosen and remove the transmission drain plug to let the auto fluid drain out into a container (careful not to lose the sealing washer) refit and tighten the drain plug and washer again. Remove the auto transmission fluid level dip stick, using a suitable funnel pour about 2.5 litres of suitable new auto trans fluid back into the transmission via the dipstick tube (I believe they take dexron 2 of 3 type fluid). Start the car and move it onto a level surface. With the engine running, handbrake on and brake pedal applied, shift the transmission from park through every gear selection slowly into 1st gear, then back to park. Leave engine running. Wipe the dip stick & insert it back into the dip stick tube fully, remove and check where the fluid level mark is on the end of the dipstick. If the fluid level indicates low or does not show at all, add 100ml of additional fluid and recheck the level till the fluid reaches the full mark on the dipstick. 2 - The second option is everything in the first option but includes replacement of the transmission filter and pan gasket. I would only do this if the car had travelled high km or the pan gasket was leaking. At the point where you've drained the old fluid into a container and refitted the drain plug and washer, remove all the transmission pan bolts and the transmission pan. If you have the time to let the fluid drain overnight prior to removing the pan it's a good idea because once the pan is removed, fluid will continue to drip from the transmission. You'll need to remove the old pan gasket, some may be stuck to the pan and or transmission, a razor blade type gasket scraper can be good for this but be careful not to scratch either surface when cleaning off the old gasket. Remove the bolts/nuts that hold the transmission filter onto the bottom of the transmission. Careful caus more fluid may drain out of the transmission or filter once removed. Fit the new filter and filter tube gasket & bolts/nuts, careful not to over tighten. Fit new pan gasket, pan and bolts. Continue with fluid filling procedure from option 1. I would suggest you only use option one and remember to double check the drain plug is tight. Also, remember to dispose of the old fluid correctly. Cheers

How to change transmision fluid and filter


Frist look to see if your trans has a plug in the bottom of your pan. If so drain your trans of fluid. If it doesn't you must loosen pan bolts and drain fluid from the sides of the pan it self. Then you must loosen and remove your bolts on your pan to get to the filter that is connected inside of trans either by bolt or clipped in place. remove filter and replace with new one only. Then replace your pan gasket with new one only. To keep pan gasket in place useing gasket sealer. make sure gasket is completely in place matching all holes. When tighting bolts Do not over tighten 20lbs torque is all that is required. Be sure all bolts are tightened at same torque. Replace fluid with required fluid that manafacture requiers for that vehicle. Pouring fluid into your transmission dip stick tube useing a small funnel. Replace only as much fluid as you have taken out. Do not over fill or serious damage is very possible to trans. once fluid is in transmission start your vehicle in park. check your dip stick on trans. If it doesn't read at full mark. Add more fluid until it does. #1 Once your at the full mark place your foot on brake and shift shifter through all gears park,rev, nutrual, drive. drive low, then back to park. #2Check your stick again to see if fluid is still at full. Add fluid if it is not full. and repeat #1 If your fluid is at full after going through your gears. Put car in drive and move forward slowly. It should move. If not repeat #1 #2 once trans is full and doesn't slip. It's safe to drive. Check trans at about 1 mile down road. If fluid is full your done. It is easier and much safer to take it to a garage if your not sure you are going to be able to do all this. It is safer for you to have it changed for under 75 dollars then to replace your transmission. Then to pay 2000 dollars to replace a screwed up transmission. They are damaged so easy and aren't at all easy to fix. So if in dought see a professional. Don't attempt it your self. Good luck

noone852, Your procedure is sound but I will add one more point. The shift lever on most models of cars will need to be in the neutral position to get an accurate check on the dipstick.

Changing the filter is more messy than hard as there is not a drain plug on the transmission pan. Problems might be the undercarrige or parts of the frame that will block access to some of the bolts. If you can get to all of the bolts ok and decide to do this yourself you can loosen one side more than the other to catch the fluid in the likes of an oil drain pan.

How to Change transmission fluid on 2001 celica


Hi there, hope these few steps help:
  • Raise the car with a jack and support the vehicle with jack stands sufficiently rated to safely support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Place a large drip pan under the transmission.
  • Remove the transmission fluid drain bolt with a wrench. The drain bolt is located at the bottom of the transmission facing the pan. The pan is the large flat plate that covers the very bottom of the transmission.
  • Drain the transmission fluid into the drip pan.
  • Reinstall the transmission fluid drain bolt with the same wrench used to remove the bolt.
  • Lower the vehicle to the ground after removing the jack stands.
  • Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick from the filler tube by pulling the dipstick. The end of the dipstick will be curved into a circle to allow a finger to slide into the circle to withdraw the dipstick.
  • Place a funnel into the dipstick tube and fill the transmission with new fluid by pouring the fluid into the dipstick tube.
  • Remove the funnel and check the fluid level with the dipstick until the fluid reaches the "Full" mark on the tip of the dipstick.
  • Start and allow the engine to run for a few minutes.
  • Move the transmission gear selector through all of the gears while depressing the brake pedal.
  • Turn the engine off and check the fluid level on the dipstick. Add transmission fluid if necessary.
Best of luck.
