There are two plugs on that car's transmission. The one at the very bottom is your drain plug. I think it's 17mm but not too sure. The fill plug is about 3 inches toward the driver's side, and about 6 inches up on the trans toward the front of the car. You can reach that plug from the engine compartment. look down at the trans from the battery. It's right below the air ducting, on the transfer case.

On a manual transmission there is just a big plug bolt on the side. I assume you want to drain the fluid.

I need to know if the whole transmission needs to be taken out to change the transmission screen in a 98 mercury mystique? if not were is it located/


To change the filter it is located on the bottom of the transmission under the transmission pan. It looks kind of like the oil pan but of course on the transmission. Once you remove the pan, you will have to unbolt the transmission filter, from there you can replace. Make sure to drain the fluid first or you are going to make a huge mess. If your transmission dues not have a drain plug, then remove the fill bolt, and evacuated the fluid that way.

I found a round magnet in my transmission pan i need to know where it came from and how to replace it


This round magnet is supposed to stay in the bottom of the Transmission pan to catch any metal flakes, shavings that may exists. This magnet should be cleaned, and replaced into the original spot in the transmission pan where you found it.

I want to know how to replace the transmission filter on a 2000 chevrolet venture


Remove the transmission pan, after pan is removed, the filter will be clearly visible. Pull straight down on the filter in a wiggleing fashion, it will pop right out of the transmission. Install new filter, clean out trans pan and magnet inside pan. Install trans pan and add approx. 2.5 qts. of new trans fluid. Start vehicle and let it get to operating temperature. Shift through all gears and re-check fluid level in trans. Add fluid as needed.
Done!

I need to know how to change the filter and transmission fluid on my illumina it is an automatic


You'll need to remove the transmission pan bolts and the pan on the bottom of the tranmission under the car. To remove the filter, pull down on the filter and remove. Make sure you have a large enough pan for the fluid, up to 8 quarts. Try leaving a couple bolts in the pan and loosen them slowly to drain the fluid out. Make sure you have the new filter fully seated into the transmission. Replace the pan gasket and reinstall the pan. Add new fluid and check the level.

I just want to know where you add the transmission fluid in a dodge durango? i can't find it


Drive the Durango for 15 to 20 minutes to warm up the transmission fluid. When the fluid is warm, it will drain better and remove more contaminants from the engine. Raise and support the front of the Durango on ramps or jack stands. Place a large drain pan beneath the transmission.

Loosen the transmission pan retaining bolts with a socket wrench. Remove the bolts, but leave one at each of the four corners of the transmission pan. Slowly loosen the remaining bolts a little at a time.Fluid should begin to drain from the seal on the transmission pan. If the pan is stuck, break the seal by gently prying it loose or tapping it with a rubber mallet.

Support the pan with one hand and remove the bolts on one side of the pan. Allow the transmission fluid to drain until it stops. Remove the two last bolts. Remove the pan and drain the rest of the fluid.

Remove the three screws that hold the filter onto the transmission. Note that these screws may be Torx style. Install a new transmission fluid filter.

Clean the transmission pan and the magnet with solvent. Remove the old gasket material from the transmission pan. You may need a scraper to remove it all. Clean the mating surfaces with a lint-free cloth soaked in solvent. Let the pan air dry.

Put the new gasket on the pan and align them. Remove the gasket, apply a few drops of adhesive on the pan and replace the gasket. Realign the gasket before the adhesive dries.

Replace the pan onto the transmission and replace the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in a crisscross fashion to 150-inch pounds with a torque wrench. Return the Durango to level ground.




Refill the transmission with new fluid a little at a time, while checking the level often. Continue to add transmission fluid until it passes the "Add" mark on the dipstick, but doesn't pass the "Full" mark.

Start the engine, shift the transmission through all the gears and place the gear selector back in "Park." Recheck the transmission fluid level and add more fluid if needed. Don't overfill the transmission.

Replace the dipstick into the filler tube. Turn off the engine.

Need to change the transmission filter


get your self the right tools, the filter, transmission fluid, gasket, gasket silicon, a good wide drain pan, clean rags, some cleaner to clean out the pan like brake parts cleaner. first find the transmission pan. once located undo the bolts around the pans flange or use the drain plug to drain all the fluid. if it doesnt have a drain plug then you have to take off the pan to drain it, messy! once the pan is off you should be able to see the filter and swap it out. clean out the pan, pan magnent, put your new gasket on and use some silicon, bolt it back on. fill the trans back with new fluid. this is straight forward approach. and dont mix the oil pan with the trans pan. the oil pan is under the motor( if that helps) let me know if you need any help or you dont understand something, thanks

Need to know placement of transmission pan, automatic, filter in or out?


Trans pan is going to be the very lowest part of your transmission. The filter swap is just slightly concerning. Not to be rude, but you might want to have an assistant that is familiar with trans basics to walk you thru the first one if locating the pan was difficult.
If you feel that the filter swap is something you would like to do, start out by getting the filter kit and reviewing the included instructions. If they are not able to give a full and detailed explanation, they sometimes include a number to call. Dont bother. Just come back here and ask!
Automatic transmissions do not come with a drain plug. You will need to loosen all the small bolts around the edge except for one, to keep the entire pan from crashing to the ground and splashing oil everywhere. pull the edge down and into the drain pan goes the trans fluid. The filter is right under the pan. Cant miss it.

It is real important to be as clean as possible. No contaminants in the trans. If you can, pressure wash the area first and stay operating room clean!
Good Luck to ya

Transmition


it is indeed under the trans pan. the trans pan is on the driver side of the car. it should have a fairly large drain bolt in it.

my i suggest that unless this service is absolutely needed that you leave your transmission alone.

chances are that your transmission is already malfunctioning, and if thats the case you will need a new transmission. as fluid changes have no effect on ultradrive transmissions that are malfunctioning.

in fact fluid changes on working ultradrive transmissions have been known to make them non-functional.

AND ONLY USE ATF+4 TRANNY FLUID
