Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Is there any fluid filter to be replace when changing the transmission oil? what is the specific amount of oil to fill in to the transmission? its just a drain and fill process? what oil brand do you recommend? thanks..
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.

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

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

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.

m8 there is no drain plug for auto or manual on the box. you have to completely take the pan off, clean it, put new gasket and silicone
