There should be a helen key, or nut on the side of the transmission. the top one is for fill, the bottom one for empty.

Where is the drain and fill plug on the transmission of a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle automatic transmission


To drain the fluid just drop the pan and drain it that way. Replace the transmission filter and then reinstall the transmission pan. Find the dip stick tube and fill the fluid through that. I'm not sure what engine/transmission you have, so you'll have to look in your owners manual and see what the amount is.
Measure the fluid you drained and match it to the mount the manual and make sure its close.
When filling the fluid put in all but 1/2 quart. Start the car and get it up to operating temperature. Place the car in neutral and read the fluid on the dip stick, add more fluid if needed.

Good luck

How to Change transmission fluid on 2001 celica


Hi there, hope these few steps help:
  • Raise the car with a jack and support the vehicle with jack stands sufficiently rated to safely support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Place a large drip pan under the transmission.
  • Remove the transmission fluid drain bolt with a wrench. The drain bolt is located at the bottom of the transmission facing the pan. The pan is the large flat plate that covers the very bottom of the transmission.
  • Drain the transmission fluid into the drip pan.
  • Reinstall the transmission fluid drain bolt with the same wrench used to remove the bolt.
  • Lower the vehicle to the ground after removing the jack stands.
  • Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick from the filler tube by pulling the dipstick. The end of the dipstick will be curved into a circle to allow a finger to slide into the circle to withdraw the dipstick.
  • Place a funnel into the dipstick tube and fill the transmission with new fluid by pouring the fluid into the dipstick tube.
  • Remove the funnel and check the fluid level with the dipstick until the fluid reaches the "Full" mark on the tip of the dipstick.
  • Start and allow the engine to run for a few minutes.
  • Move the transmission gear selector through all of the gears while depressing the brake pedal.
  • Turn the engine off and check the fluid level on the dipstick. Add transmission fluid if necessary.
Best of luck.

I thought I drained the oil but apparently drained the transmission fluid. Where do I refill the transmission fluid?


Same place where you check the transmission fluid level, where the dipstick goes in, most of the time it has a yellow handle.

I need to know how to change the transimission filter on a 1996 ford thunderbird v8. Or at lest where to find a diagram on how to do it


Copied from AutoZone.com:


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  3. Loosen the pan attaching bolts and drain the fluid from the transmission.

Always place used fluids and oils into a sealed storage container and take to an approved recycling collection facility. Never dump used fluids or oils on the ground or in a trash receptacle. Contamination to the environment can and will occur.
  1. When the fluid has drained to the level of the pan flange, remove the remaining pan bolts working from the rear and both sides of the pan to allow it to drop and drain slowly.

Some AOD transmissions will have a plastic plunger type plug floating loosely in the pan when draining the fluid. It is of no importance and was used in the assembly process of the transmission. Discard it before reinstallation of pan.
  1. When all of the fluid has drained, remove the pan and clean it thoroughly. discard the pan gasket. If equipped, remove the pan magnet.

0900c1528006bc41.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: On some vehicles, such as this 1995, you must remove and clean the pan magnet
To install:
  1. Place a new gasket on the pan, then install the pan on the transmission. If equipped, don't forget to install the pan magnet. Tighten the pan attaching bolts as follows:

    C3 and C5 Transmissions: 12-16 ft. lbs. (16-22 Nm) A4LD Transmissions: 8-10 ft. lbs. (11-13.5 Nm) AOD Transmissions: 71-119 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm) 4R70W Transmissions: 9-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm)
  2. Add the correct type and quantity of fluid to the transmission through the filler tube.
  3. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and move the gear selector through shift pattern. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
  4. Check the transmission fluid. Add fluid, if necessary, to maintain correct level.


FILTER SERVICE


See Figure 3
  1. Remove the transmission oil pan and drain the fluid. For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
  2. Remove the screen and the filter from the valve body. Most screens are retained using a fastener; through some may use an interference fit between the screen tube and valve body.




0900c1528006bc42.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: After the pan is removed, you can remove the transmission fluid filter
To install:
  1. Install a new filter using a new gasket or O-ring.

If the transmission uses a filter equipped with a fully exposed screen, it may be cleaned and reused.
  1. Install the transmission oil pan and properly refill the transmission.

How do you add transmission fluid to a 2000 town country


The tranny fluid is added through the tranny dipstick (make sure it's not the oil dipstick). Fluid color should be red and the dipstick should have instructions on how to check level (car in park, engine at idle). Funnels are your friend here.

How do you go about changing the trans fluid on a 2005 chevy impala


First make sure you have the proper amount of Transmission fluid to replace what you drain as well as a new transmission filter and gasket. (they usually come in a kit together. The filter & gasket). Make sure the transmission fluid is warm before using jack stands, drive on ramps or a floor jack with jack stands. If there's a transmission drain plug, open it and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a catch pan. If there's not a drain plug, remove the transmission pan bolts, leaving the 4 corner bolts in place until the end. Then slowly loosen two of the bolts at the same end to allow the transmission pan to tilt as well as drain the fluid that way. As the transmission fluid drains, start removing the other two pan bolts to allow more of a tilt until you can place your hand on the pan and remove the remaining bolts, thus removing the pan to be cleaned out. You will normally find a magnet in the bottom of the pan which needs to be cleaned and re-installed. The transmission filter is attached to the "valve body" ,m and when removing that, be aware that more transmission fluid will drain out. To clean a transmission pan, I use either CRC Brake-Kleen or gasoline. Remove all of the pan gasket, install the new filter and replace the transmission pan...don't forget to place the magnet in it and pull your transmission dipstick out of the tube. It has a "vent to atmosphere" so the Brake-Kleen is wonderful for that. If not cleaned, it allows internal pressures to build up inside of the transmission and you could blow transmission seals. Refill with fluid and with your foot on the brake, start it up and allow it to go into ALL the gear ranges, eg. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive 2nd and low and then back up to allow the valve body to replace the fluid lost when the filter was changed. Road test and re-check the Transmission fluid Hot on a level surface and add as needed.
A Haynes Manual for your particular vehicle would help with the amount of fluid you will need as well as the tightening pattern of the pan. It also has pictures of what you're going to see before you launch into this task.

Hope this Helps,

Fuel filter


I have hereby given the procedure to replace the fuel filter

#1 Raise and support the car on jackstands.
#2 Place the drain pan under the transmission fluid pan.
#3 Starting at the rear of the pan and working toward the front, loosen the attaching bolts and allow the fluid to drain. Finally remove all of the pan attaching bolts except two at the front, to allow the fluid to further drain. With fluid drained, install two bolts on the rear side of the pan to temporarily hold it in place.
#4 Remove the converter drain plug access cover from the lower end of the converter housing.
#5 Remove the converter-to-flywheel attaching nuts. Place a wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt to turn the converter to gain access to the nuts.
#6 With the wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt, turn the converter to gain access to the converter drain plug. Place a drain pan under the converter to catch the fluid and remove the plug. After the fluid has been drained, reinstall the plug.
#7 Disconnect the driveshaft from the rear axle and slide shaft rearward from the transmission. Install a seal installation tool in the extension housing to prevent fluid leakage.
#8 Disconnect the speedometer cable from the extension housing.
#9 Disconnect the downshift and manual linkage rods from the levers at the transmission.
#10 Disconnect the oil cooler lines from the transmission.
