SOURCE: how can i check to transmission fluid level in 2005 ford explorer

Does not have a dip stick.

Start the vehicle set park brake

In the side if the transmission oil pan a bigger bolt with a small bolt in the center.

Remove smaller center bolt trans fluid should drip out at a fairly constant rate if not its low.

Hope this tip helps.

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes almost to the floor before taking

hi from uk from the symtoms you clearly describe this souns very much like your problem is the brake mater cylinder is faulty this is to say that as it is what is called dual master cyl it operates the front brakes on one piston and the rear brakes on the second piston within the master cyl so if the front piston fails(fluid passes the piston seal and returns to reservoir ) hence no leak ? of fluid externally then pedal travels further and operates 2nd piston for rear brakes and eventually brakes applied ? this is common occurance and mainly on older models/high milage/ not flushing/bleeding fluid annually as recommended intervals ? brake fluid is subjected to heat transfer from pads /shoes then wheel cylinders resulting that fluid becomes compressable resulting in spongy pedal/increase in travel also fluid also absorbs moisture over time with equel symptoms as described above ? unfortunatly nowadays it is difficult to obtain new seals/repair kits to recondition cylinders so you have to replace here in uk unlike years ago you could try bleeding/flushing brake system all cyl's to see if it improves brakes ? you will see dirty/burned fluid on the 1st bleed strokes ? hope you understand all above ? have tried to explain simply? and hope this helps ? if you req more help/info by all means come back ? best wishes from n/west uk

check hydrallic fluid level in case some of it leaked out. Also check for air in lines by revving it up and trying to engage it under a load. After that, check hydrallic fluid level again.

WHAT IS THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL


This Brake fluid level is a reservior of brake fluid near the hydraulic master cyclinder it will indicate the level it should be at on the side of the reservior or on the dip stick attached to the cap of the reservior. if it keeps running out after you top it up with hydraulic brake fluid you have a leak in your braking system and need to get your brake system checked out.before you find out you can't stop the car.!!

Brake light stays on in dash 96 ford thunderbird


Hi, there are 3 things that can cause the light to stay on.
One is the parking brake switch, which may have shorted internally or to chassis ground. The switch is above the parking brake pedal. If the connector is still on the switch remove it. If the light goes out, replace the switch.

The second is the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. Check fluid level. If good, check the sensor by taking the cable off. If that puts the light out, replace the sensor.

The third is the pressure differential warning switch. The switch turns on when there is a brake failure. You would probably know if this happened. If not, check all wheels for brake fluid leaks. If you have a leak and need help with repair procedures, please get back to me. If you have completed repairs, please read the procedures below from autozone.com to reset the warning switch.

Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.


From autozone.com:
A pressure differential warning valve is incorporated in the hydraulic system. The signal from this valve consists of a warning light on the dashboard activated by a differential pressure switch located below the master cylinder. The signal indicates a hydraulic pressure differential between the front and rear brakes of 80-150 psi, and should warn the driver that a hydraulic failure has occurred.
After repairing and bleeding any part of the hydraulic system the warning light may remain on due to the pressure differential valve remaining in the off-center position. To centralize the valve a pressure difference must be created in the opposite branch of the hydraulic system that was repaired or bled last.
Front wheel balancing of cars equipped with disc brakes may also cause a pressure differential in the front branch of the system.


VALVE CENTERING PROCEDURE

  1. Turn the ignition to either the ACC or ON position.
  2. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoirs. Fill to within 1 / 4 in. (6mm) of the top if necessary.
  3. Depress the brake pedal firmly. The valve will centralize itself causing the brake warning light to go out.
  4. Turn the ignition off.
  5. Prior to driving the vehicle, check the operation of the brakes and obtain a firm pedal.

I was needing to know a way to flush the old contaminated hydraulic fluid out of a clutch system on a 1994 Ford Escort.


If the contaminated fluid is just old brake/clutch fluid which has too high a moisture content, then just bleed the clutch in the normal way but keep bleeding until what comes out is fresh clean fluid. Obviously, you need to keep a careful check on the fluid reservoir level as you do the job to ensure that you don't allow the level to drop low enough to pull air into the system.

If the clutch hydraulics have been contaminated with mineral oil though, then you must completely drain and strip the master cylinder and slave cylinder afterwards and replace all the seals after washing all internal components in fresh brake fluid. Flushing first just ensures that no contamination remains in the hoses to ruin the new seals when you refill the system.

I came back from a 4 day trip and when I started the hybrid, I had no power steering or power brake assist.


Check your power steering fluid level. The power brakes are hydraulic assist and get hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. If the fluid level is good you may have a bad pump. If the fluid level is low fill it up and find the leak .

What kind of power steering fluid can you put into a 2003 Audi a4? Is there a certain type?

Audi A4 1.9 TDI power steering oil type and capacity


Power steering fluid level checking:
- vehicle stationary
- front wheels in straight ahead position
- engine at normal operating temperature
- remove cap with dipstick from expansion tank and wipe off
- reinstall cap with dipstick and remove again
- fluid level between "min" and "max" markings
- top off with G 002 000 hydraulic oil if necessary
Power steering system capacity is around 1 liter, but it is not necessary to periodic change the hydraulic oil!
If oil level has dropped to the "min" marking, check power steering system, including hoses and lines.
It is not enough simply to top off the hydraulic oil !!!

The clutch fluid is leaking on my truck and it won't go into gear right.


You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going  in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully. 
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.

Fluid check


The 2002 thru 2007 do not have the traditional hydraulic power stering unit that requires fluid. In these models, power assist is provided by an electrical power steering unit. Nothing to check there but the battery.

HYUNDAI TRANSMISSION


1. Drive the vehicle until the fluid temperature reaches normal operating the usual temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 2. Place the vehicle on a level floor. 3. Move the selector lever sequentially to every position. This will fill the torque converter and hydraulic system with fluid, then place lever in "N" (Neutral) position. 4. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all contaminate from area around the dipstick. Then take out the dipstick and check the condition of the fluid. The transaxle should be overhauled under the following conditions. a. If there is a "burning" odor. b. If the fluid color has become noticeably blacker. c. If there is a noticeably excessive amount of metal particles in the fluid. 5. Check to see if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range on dipstick. If fluid level is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range. Transaxle fluid: GENUINE HYUNDAI ATF SP-II, DIAMOND ATF SP-II or AUTRAN MMSP-II. Low fluid level can cause a variety of abnormal conditions because it allows the pump to take in air along with fluid. Air trapped in the hydraulic system forms bubbles which are compressable. Therefore, pressures will be erratic, causing delayed shifting, slipping clutch and brakes, etc. Improper filling can also raise fluid level too high. When the transaxle has too much fluid, gears churn up foam and cause the same conditions which occur with low fluid level, resulting in accelerated deterioration of automatic transaxle fluid. In either case, air bubbles can cause overheating, and fluid oxidation, which can interfere with normal valve, clutch, and servo operation. Foaming can also result in fluid escaping from the transaxle vent where it may be mistaken for a leak. 6. Be sure to examine the fluid on the dipstick closely.0f3ac6e.gif
