If the manuel says 6 qt thats what it takes. Sometimes 5 min is not enough time for all the oil to run down from the top of the engine check the oil after 1 hour if you removed the same amount that you put in I think you are safe

Incorrect Pressures
· Low line pressure
· Check pressure at line pressure tap. Carry out Line Pressure and Stall Speed Tests. Refer to Special Testing Procedures in this section. If pressure is low, check the following possible components: main control, pump assembly, reverse clutch assembly, low/reverse clutch assembly.

Main Controls
· Bolts out of torque specification
· Adjust bolts to specification.

· 1-2 shift valve, SSA, main regulator valve, low/reverse modulator valve, low/reverse accumulator piston, pressure tap plate damaged, missing, stuck, misassembled
· Inspect for damage. Repair as necessary.

· Separator plates damaged
· Inspect for damage. Repair as necessary.

· Hydraulic passages damaged
· Inspect for damage. Repair as necessary.

Pump Assembly
· Bolts out of torque specification

With all that said, you need to have it taken to either the Ford dealer or transmission shop to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. Either way, it's likely that the transaxle is going to require removal and disassembly to repair, if the TR sensor isn't the cause. You may print this answer and bring it into the servicing tech, in order to expedidite the diagnosis process. Hope this helps.

Oil dipstick ident.


very possible
best go to a wreckers/junk yard and get the stick that is the same length as the broken one
the critical distance is from where the stick sits on the end of the tube to where the oil level marks are .
from the tube up length does not matter

I had to stop in the dark by the roadside and add oil to my 94 Saturn SL2 in the middle of nowhere, and apparently, i left my oil dipstick out among the cornfields. i'm having a horrible time finding...


Do you live somewhat out in the middle of nowhere?A salvage yard should have plenty of dipsticks for your engine size as it would seem that it is not highly looked for and would only go with the engine if someone bought the whole engine.If there is not one close enough,try finding ones a little farther out.Just let them know the engine size and I amsure they would ship it for a few extra $.Hopefully not more than $5.Good luck!

Dipstick guide gets bend while torquing


never mind reading the book and working to it ,you are obviously doing it wrong by over tightening it when re-building engines or anything mechanical you work by feel,knowing the metals used and what stress and vibration levels they have to withstand.just tighten it with a small spanner and dont be so heavy handed, firm pull and thats it
