SOURCE: Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.

It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...


How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

Trans axle fluid level


Look for check plug on the side of the transmission. (Should be mid way up or higher on the side)
Remove plug and insert pinky finger.
Fluid should be at that level.
If not, add until it starts to pour back out.

Reinstall plug and drive.

Lay down some plastic with some rags over it to catch the mess so you don\'t booger up the driveway and please make sure the brake is on AND you have the tires blocked.

Ford c4 trans leaks fluid when in reverse only


These models have whats known as a bleeder valve on top of the transmission. When the filter becomes clogged, or when the fluid is overfull, it will blow out through the tube during reverse and will lightly seep out in drive.

Replacing transmission fluid


do not do trans flush if car has over 100,000 miles and has never been flushed. if its under 100,000 or has been fushed before it is an easy job. there is a drainplug on trans pan. take out drain fluid. new trans filter will come with new trans pan gasket in most cases. remove trans pan, fliter is behind trans pan

Can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus


You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

Transmission fluid stick


No the manual transmisson does not have a stick. on the transmisson their are two plugs. One for draining and one for filling. In order to check the fluid, pull the higher plug out and feel with a finger in that hole for fluid. To set the level to the correct level you would need to drain and refill the trans. If no leaks are present you should be OK
