Do you have what is called a CVT transmission? CVT stands for Continuously Variable Transmission. Two ways to find out is 1) your shifter from bottom up says L D N R P. And 2) you have NO dipstick.
If this the case, take it to Ford and it will cost you about $500.00. Unless you have a well stocked shop, you can't do it yourself. I have one in my 2006 Freestyle. I bought it used from Ford. Actually Honda pioneered these about 15 years ago. I bought mine as I said used from a Ford dealer with 62,000 miles on it. It runs good and works well and I bought the Ford extended warantee with it. I'm telling you this for a reason. I went browsing through the included owner's manual and when I looked at the recomended service intervals, it said that the transmission change intervals were at 60.000 miles.I knew that this car had been bought new from this dealer so I called them up and asked, 1) Had this transmission ever been serviced?
(I should have asked this BEFORE I paid $16,000 cash for it.) Answer, NO 2) how much does it cost to service it. Answer, $500.00
3) Why so much? Answer, You have to pull the engine / trans.to replace the $75.00 high pressure filter among other things like the special trans. fluid
4) How will it affect my Ford warantee if I don't have it serviced? Answer, What warantee?
5) Just for laughs, how much is a replacement. Answer, $5000.00+ labor. And by the way, I didn't plan on towing anything but don't plan on it anyway. I'll be 60 next June so I can safely say that my racing days are well behind me but if you want a peppy, fast acting get up and go tranny, RUN IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!!! If you drive to get where you're going and not going to jump off the line to show off, it's great. It gets good mileage for it's weight and being all wheel drive. Anything else, look the other way. I've said enough. Good luck. Jeff M. P.S. I must say it does well at the wheel chair races. Jeff M.

SOURCE: Refilling transmission fluid - manual 5-speed.

dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

LISTEN CLOSE. THERE IS A PLUG ON PAN. REMOVE IT. WITH A SYRINGE TYPE CANISTER YOU NEED TO INJECT THE FLUID INTO IT UNTIL IT STARTS TO COME OUT. THEN CAREFULLY START VEHICLE AND INJECT ANOTHER 3/4 QUART UNLESS IT STARTS TO COME OUT OR EVEN A QUART.LET IT RUN FOR 5 MINUTES THEN CONTINUE TO INSERT UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS AND TIGHTEN THE PLUG BACK TO THE PAN. i WOULD ONLY USE AUDI VOLKSWAGON FLUID AND YES IT CAN RUN $14 TO $18 A LITER

SOURCE: Transmission fluid/filter change in 2000 Honda Odyssey

I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

SOURCE: no dipstick to put transmission fluid into

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

Mitsubishi express van 2.4 auto not changing into 4th gear. Any ideas?


If it's hesitant to shift, or not shifting at all, it could be a simple fix.
The first thing you'll have to do is to check the transmission fluid. Allow your van time to completely warm up before doing this. I recommend you do this while it is running. If it is low on fluid, there's your problem. If the fluid level is okay, then you may need the transmission filter and fluid both changed. Changing you fluid/filter is relatively simple. It's similar to an oil change with the exception being that the filter is inside the transmission, visible only when you remove the transmission pan. The filter isn't like an oil filter, it's more akin to your filter on your home A/C unit. Some have a replaceable filter, and some have a permanent filter that you'll have to remove and clean before re-installing. If you do need to replace it, they are inexpensive and found at any auto parts store. If it's still giving you problems, unfortunately it may be an internal problem that you'll have to take to a transmission specialist. Make sure to find out exactly how much fluid it holds and what type of transmission fluid it needs before you change it.

How to change auto transmission fluid of ford everest


Just draining the fluid does not get the fluid out of the torque converter. Most service shops use a machine that replaces the fluid while the engine is running and uses the pump in the transmission to move clean fluid in while at the same time collects the old fluid. That is , by far, the best way to change ALL the fluid in the transmission

Changing transmission oil


To change the auto transmission fluid in your car you have some choices, if you just want to replace the fluid and filter that will replace about 3-4 quarts of the trans fluid, this requires the pan on the bottom of the trans be removed (there is no drain plug), the filter is inside, this is very messy. If you wish to do a complete fluid exchange you will first need to remove the filter and replace it, then have the transmission flushed with a special machine that pumps out all of the old fluid and replaces it with new fluid, most oil change shops do this service as well as the dealer, the dealer charges about the same and i would take it there.

What type of transmisson oil do I use for a 1996 ford crown victoria and oil filter


The fluid you need is called mercon type ATF this is what ford recommends to use and should say it on the bottle. as for a filter for the transmission or engine I recommend motorcraft filters they meet ford specifications and are available at most auto parts stores.

My 2002 Toyota Auto Camry sometimes struggles to move from P=park to D-drive,the transmission fluid is always guaged but has not being drained out for closes to 4 years.Could this be an issue? How often...


no need to change the transmission. just the fluid and filter in your transmission. 90.000 miles is really too far to go without the fluid and filter changed. your fluid needs changed as well as the filter in the transmission. i do recommend you add lucas transmission treatment to your transmission fluid and filter replacement though. it costs an extra $12.00 for the treatment but well worth it.if you have a sticky valve in your transmission,it will free it up and add extra life to all moving parts,i also recommend it in oil changes as well. you'll find that if you use the lucas,it will save money on fuel mileage and easy on the pocket book in the long run. i have 1994 ford explorer 4x4 with over 400.000 miles with no problems so far,just trying to do a million miles.i discovered lucas by accident 10 years ago and have been a faithful consumer so far as well as recommending it to my customers.they produce fuel,oil,transmission,and rear end treatments to those that still drive the rear wheel drive vehicles.your problem sounds like a stuck valve or sticky valve in your transmission,so i do recommend you have that fluid and filter changed whether you decide to use lucas or not. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle


The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

1990 6 cyl F150 transmission fluid change.


If it's manuel you just need the oil, there is a fill hole and a drain hole on the side of the transmission. If it's an automatic, there is an transmission filter that need to be changed if it's been there long enough. 
The cheaper way to change the transmission fluid is to have a transmission shop flush it out with a transmission flush system that connects to the high pressure side transmission line and it replaces the old oil with new one and check the transmission line pressure too. This re places 15 liters of fluid. The more expensive is if you just drop the transmission pan and change the oil and filter you only replace about 3 liters in total and if you don't mind the mess you can do it your self for around $50.00 for the filter, gasket and Transmission oil.
Good luck and keep me posted.
Keep me posted and good luck, be glad to help.
