SOURCE: Transmission fluid drain

NO there is no drain plug on a transmission. There never is one which i could never understand. You have to loosen all the pan bolts and pull them out one by one till a corner one is left and slightly pry it open and aim it into a drain pan. It's a pain in the **** but this is the only way, then the fiter will be exposed so you can change that too,

SOURCE: Where is the transmission fluid drain plug for a 2000 Cougar

Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluid siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.

1995 ford aspire trans axle fluid level


you should see a plug that looks different from the oil drain plug on the transmission pan, or near the bottom, on the side of the transmission.
remove, drain. You refill through the dipstick tube for trans fluid.
If it's a manual trans, there will be another plug higher up on the trans.
this one will be the fill plug.
Also on the manual trans, some people just remove the shifter and add fluid in the large hole up top.
Youtube and google will be your friend here.

How to change a transmission screen on a 05' ford


The filter is not replaced unless an overhaul of the trans-axle is needed, It involves the removal of the trans-axle and partial disassembly to accomplish the filter replacement. That is only if trans failure is suspected, and diagnosis requires removal and inspection of the filter. The filter removal and replacement is procedure 42 out of 72 in the disassembly manual and 12 different Ford specific SST's (Special Service Tools) are needed. I did however, include the procedure for the normal drain and fill service performed at the dealer.
I hope this info helps!

1996 Honda Accord EX Manual trans. Where is oil level plug. what kind of oil?


Hi there,

All Honda manual transaxles use the Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) as the original factory fill. This oil is similar to a 10W-30 or 10W-40 viscosity engine oil, and this oil can be substituted temporarily. However, the manufacturer recommends the use of their MTF when changing the fluid.

Level Check

The transaxle fluid should be changed every 90,000 miles (144,000 km) or 6 years under normal driving conditions. In severe driving conditions the fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or every 2 years, whichever occurs first.
Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface. If the vehicle is raised, make sure the vehicle is safely supported and level

NOTE: Do not confuse the drain plug with the fill plug.
The fill plug is in the mid section of the transaxle. The drain plug is near the bottom of the transaxle.
  1. The oil level is checked by removing the oil fill plug on the side of the transaxle. The transaxle fluid should just meet the lower threads of the transaxle fill hole.
  2. Remove the oil level check bolt from the side of the transaxle. If oil runs out, or if oil can be felt near the threaded fill hole opening, reinstall and retighten the bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. If the level needs to be topped off, pour oil in slowly until it begins to run out then, install and tighten the filler bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

Transmission is taking long to change gears. Car struggles to go up hill.


TRANSMISSION IS SLIPPING.TIME FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE IF CAR HAS OVER 100000 MILES .CHECK UNDERNEATH CAR AND SEE IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN IS WET OR LOOK LIKE PAN GASKET IS LEAKING.YOU NEED TO REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE FILLER TUBE YOU HAVE TO ADD A PINT AT A TIME AND REMOVE CHECK PLUG ON TRANSAXLE LOCATED NEAR THE PAN ADJACENT TO THE ENGINE OIL DRAIN PLUG.THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE YOUR CAR HAS TO BE LIFTED UP IN THE AIR ON A LIFT. CAR HAS TO BE LEVEL AND ENGINES HAS TO RUN FIVE MINUTES FOR TRANSMISSION TO BE IN OPERATING TEMPERATURE. ONCE TRANSMISSION GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE REMOVE THE CHECK PLUG.IF NO FLUID COME OUT YOU NEED TO ADD MORE FLUID NO MORE THAN A PINT AT A TIME.IF FLUID POUR OUT CHECK PLUG HOLE YOU HAVE TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.IF FLUID DRIP A SLOW DRIP YOUR FLUID LEVEL CORRECT.TO ADD FLUID YOU REMOVE THE VENT FILL PLUG ON TOP TRANSAXLE WHERE DIP STICK USED TO BE LOCATED.YOU CAN DO THIS JOB YOUR SELF.YOU NEED TO BE ON LEVEL SOLID GROUND AND YOU NEED JACK STANDS AND A FLOOR JACK. LIKE I SAID THIS IS A DANGEROUS JOB AND YOU NEED ABOUT 12M SOCKET TO REMOVE TRANSAXLE CHECK PLUG.

How to check trasmission fluid no dipstick just a red cap


4T40E Automatic Transaxle CAUTION
Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of the transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe. The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.
  1. The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near room temperature or at 104°F (40°C). To acquire this, left the car idle for 3-5 minutes with all of the accessories off. Fig. 5: Location of the fluid level screw and the fill/vent cap needed to check the fluid for the 4T40E automatic transaxle 87951085.gif

  2. Apply the brake, then move the gear shift selector through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range. Shift the lever into P.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a suitable drain pan under the check plug to catch any fluid that may drip out.
  5. Remove the oil check plug. The oil level should be at the bottom of the oil check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the screw hole when the screw is removed.
  6. If fluid drains through the screw hole, the transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, then fluid level is correct and the check plug may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the screw hole, the transaxle fluid may have been low. Add fluid at the vent cap location in 1 pint increments until the oil level is at the bottom of the oil check hole.
  7. Install the oil check plug/fluid level screw and tighten to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  8. Carefully lower the vehicle.

1987 944 porsche transmission and differntial fluid


I'm assuming that this is a 5 speed stick car because you mentioned 80-90 oil. This car has a transaxle, not a a separate transmission and differential. The transaxle houses the transmission gears and the differential all in one housing. There is a drain plug on the bottom a fill plug on the side. Here's a link to one of the best do-it-yourself 944 sites on the web. Click on the "garage shop manual" link in the sidebar and scroll down to "transaxle fluid change".

Location of transmission (automatic) dipstick


You DO NOT have one.

There is a small bolt/plug in the transmission above the pan that needs to be removed. The fluid will run out if it's overfilled. The transmission needs to be at room temperature or a little warmer to check the level.


The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.
Inspect:
The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near Room temperature or at 40°C (104°F).
CAUTION: Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe.
The engine must be running when the transaxle fluid level screw is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fluid level screw. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid.
WARNING: Do not turn the engine off with the fluid level screw removed as you can be injured by hot transaxle fluid being expelled out of the fluid check hole.

  1. Let vehicle idle for three to five minutes with accessories off.
  2. Apply brake
  3. Move shift lever through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range.
  4. Place shift lever in Park. Important: Vehicle must be kept level on the hoist.
  5. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  6. Place oil container under fluid level screw.
  7. Remove the fluid level screw with the engine running at idle.
  8. Fluid level should be at the bottom of the fluid check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the fluid check hole when the fluid level screw is removed. If fluid drains through the fluid check hole, this transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, the fluid level is correct and the fluid level screw may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the fluid check hole, the transaxle fluid level may be low. Proceed to ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID.
  9. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Shut off engine.
181efc6.gif
Adding Transaxle Fluid:
  1. With the engine running, add fluid at the vent cap location in half liter (1 pint) increments until fluid drains through the fluid check hole. Allow the fluid to finish draining through the fluid check hole.
  2. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
  3. Lower vehicle

Changing the transmission fluid


Once you've drained the transaxle by removing drain plug, re-install drain plug and torque to mfg. specs. To fill transaxle, you need a 5/8" square drive attached to a 9" extension, breaker bar or ratchet. Raise vehicle on hoist, or jack up and secure with jackstands. The fill plug is located above and slightly to the right of the location where the passenger side c.v. halfshaft enters the transaxle. Remove fill plug. Using a fluid exchange tool available at your local parts store, fill with automatic transmission/transaxle fluid available only from a Suzuki dealership, (part# ESSO LT 71141) until fluid starts to run out of fill hole, then replace fill plug, and torque to manufacturer specifications. I'm a former Suzuki technician. I hope this was helpful.
