The LS is a fraternal twin to the Jaguar S-Type and both have a SEALED Ford transmission. There is no owner friendly (dipstick) means of checking the transmission fluid. There are fill and drain plugs on the transmission housing similiar to those found in a classic differential, but you have to access these from beneath the vehicle with the unit on a lift. Checking the transmission level with the car on ramps or a floor jack would not give you a proper reading as the vehicle would then be on a tilted angle and the fluid would not be "level" for a correct determination.

Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

How to change Transmission Fluid


Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid.
For most cars, the Maintenance Tune Ups are scheduled at 30K, 60K, 90K and so on. Most of the dealers recommend to change the Transmission Oil and transmission oil filter at 60K. The transmission Oil can't last forever, so it is a good idea to take care for the transmission before something bad happens, and at 30K the transmission oil start breaking down. So you buy a transmission filter kit and start the job. Lift and secure your car. Loose and put pan bolts in a small cup with kerosene or WD-40. With finesse loose the transmission oil pan. Collect and disposal properly the used transmission oil. The amount could be 4 to 5 quarts. This is only the half. The rest is still inside the car. For now disregard the rest of the transmission oil. Focus on the oil pan. You have to clean inside and outside and check the magnet and residue. A black dust is normal. Replace the transmission filter. Just pull it out and snap in the new one. Don't forget that "O" ring sealer is in place. Clean out the surface of transmission block in contact with the pan. It is aluminum and don't tolerate even a scratch. A razor blade in right angle can do the job. Clean with lacquer thinner both surfaces in contact and the bolts. Dry out thoroughly. IF the oil pan is designed for a gasket, you are very lucky. Apply a thin layer of sealing agent, over the transmission oil pan edge, and position the gasket over it. Mount the pan on the transmission surface and torque the bolts at around 170 in- lbs. If the oil pan doesn't accept a gasket, Chrysler like this,than you are in trouble. You have to wait till the transmission oil drip stops.You need to wait overnight, till 24 hours. Clean everything thoroughly with lacquer thinner. Apply RTV around all holes and, create a gasket with sealer.Too much or too little means trouble. Mounting the pan you have to be very precise, one wrong move and you start again from the scratch. If there are big electrical harness obstacles, ask for a person to help. This happen to Chrysler Town & Country. Tight up the bolts with an extension only. Wait at least one hour and tight up to 150 in - lbs, or (12 ft - lbs). Wait at least 24 hours to cure, before filling up with transmission oil.You think are done. Not yet. You have a new filter, clean transmission oil pan, including the magnet, which must be cleaned and put back in place, but half of the transmission fluid is still old and dirty.
You have two options.
Fill out the transmission with new fluid, disconnect the return oil line at the transmission, or cooler, and collect 4 to 6 gallons and disposal the fluid properly. To do so you need to start engine and move the selector to reverse, neutral, drive and back to park. Connect the line and fill out the transmission with new fluid.
Option two.
Buy 6 to 8 feet vinyl clear house. Insert the house in the dip stick opening up to the bottom, and siphon the oil from transmission to a container positioned on the ground.
You need up to 24 hours to drain the oil. You have to repeat this procedure one more time after a month or so. You have to buy 10 quarts of transmission oil, but this is worth compared with a transmission repair. Keep in mind to buy the specific transmission oil for your car. Check the fluid level with the engine running and add as needed. Check after a week. If level is to high then siphon small amounts and fill up to the mark.

MI have a 2000 ford mustang and need to check or fill the transmission fluid where do I find this? It is a manual transmission.


naughtyon904, Most manual transmissions have a drain plug (on the botttom) and a fill plug (on the side ) of the transmissions. You need to raise the vehicle with ramps and visually check the transmission. Find the fill plug and remove it. With your finger check the level of the oil. It should be at the top of the fill hole. Also, check with your local dealer to find out exactly what is in the transmission as it is usually gear oil and not transmission fluid that is used. They can tell you the exact weight of the oil to be used and if there are any additives. Good luck with this.

Transmission oil filling


I changed the transmission oil on my pu truck ford f150. It was easy.
You'll need a transmission filter and transmission oil ask the serviceman how many qts you need.
Remember that you will have to check the dipstick and see that the two holes on it are covered with red trans fluid while the engine is running. Remember while the engine is on then you check to see if you need to add which you certainly will have to keep adding until it is full. Sorry i didnt give you more details.
