Hi, Get a good size oil pan because their isn't just a plug to remove. You have to take off the whole pan on the bottom of the tranny. There will be between 10 an 20 bolts holding it on. After removed you will see the filter it will be square or rectangular like shaped. Simply just pull it out from the tranny it just plugs in. You should change the filter along with the fluid and gasket. Be sure to remove all of old gasket. When putting back together use liquid gasket, put a little bit on your finger or small globs around the pan where the gasket will go. Do this before putting new gasket on. Spread thre liqiud gasket around where the gasket will go. After that lay the new gasket on top of the newly applied liquid gasket. This will help out considerably in keeping the gasket in place when putting the pan back on. Line up the pan hold in place with one hand and screw in a two or 3 bolts by hand, you just want to get them started so they will hold the pan up while putting in the rest. After all bolts are in tighen down alternating side to side end to end tighten firmly but do not over tighten, the tranny is aluminum and the threads will strip if over tightened. Filling the tranny you will need a transmission funnel, you can get them at wal-mart any parts store. It is a long thin funnel than goes directly into the dipstick tube and fill from there. Put in two quarts and then start the engine to check level. The car has to be runnig wlie you check the fluid level. I hope this helped you out. It would be greatly appreciated if you could rate my answer, Thanks. Good luck...... MIKE-

Best way (drain and fill or flush)to change tranny fluid and best non-ford fluid to use


Always flush is best. Just draining removes only 15-25% ( depending on transmission ) of your fluid leaving up to 85% old & dirty fluid to contaminate the clean. Flushing forces fresh fluid into all parts until the fluid flows out clean.

Where do I add Transmission fluid on a 95 ford Probe??


So you know, I am not insulting you. I don't know what you know or what you don't know. From your symptoms, I'm confused. If you pulled the trani pan down and the trani dip-stick still read "Full", you pulled the wrong dip-stick. Your transmission takes Mercon and you will need a narrow funnel that will fit inside the trani dip-stick tube. Follow the dip-stick tube all the way to the bottom and verify that it goes to the transmission. When you pulled the trani pan down you should have four or more quarts empty into your drain-pan. Until you can confirm that the the trani is properly filled, don't continue to use the car. Running the engine while the trani is empty can damage internal componants. If you have any questions, please write back, good luck.

Change the transmission fluid in a 2000 ford windstar van


The transmission service is performed by lifting the vehicle in order to get access to the transmission pan. Remove all the bolts that hold the pan in place and the fluid will come out when the pan is being lowerd. From there the filter is accesible and should be changed by simply pulling it downward. The new one is installed by pushing it firmly in place where the old one once was. Clean the pan of the transmission completely including the magnet. place new gasket around the pan and reinstall all the pan bolts. be carefull not to over tighten the pan bolts as it can damage the new gasket the you have put on. next, lower the vehicle and add fluid through the dipstick tube located in the engine compartment. It's best to add 4 quarts then start the vehicle and check the level. If more is needed, add accordingly.

There is none. To change the fluid you need to remove the cover - undo one end first to limit the mess - but yes, it's messy. AnswerBest To Have A Good Transmission Shop Do This. Sometimes You Can Miss Alighn The Filter On Some Tranmissions And They Will Go Out. About Changing The Fluid, Even If You Could It Wouldn`t Do The Job Without a New Filter. Good Luck AnswerThere is an excellent write-up on this procedure relating to a Taurus - the steps are the same.

NOTE: dropping the pan alone will NOT change ALL the fluids - specifically the fluid that is in the torque converter. That would require a shop to perform a full fluid change with their specialized equipment. Answerdrop the pan, replace filter, clean pan replace gasket torq bolts to spec. refill to warm line on stick
Rick
ASE L-1 Master TransMichigan.com AnswerRemove the pan and then remove the filter on the valve body. Clean the pan and gasket surfaces on pan & trany. Install new filter and pan gasket and gently tighten bolts. Caution, if overtightened it will leak!!! Remember how tight they were when you removed them or get a spec & torque them. Refill the trany through the filler tube, DON'T overfill it or it may not shift properly. To check the fluid level the vehicle needs to be running in park and on a level surface. If you do the above you will only change aprox 40% of the fluid. The torque converter, cooler & lines hold the rest and the fluid won't drain out of them.
I suggest you take it to a shop that has a trany FLUSHING machine and will exchange 100% of the fluid and do the filter & gasket at the same time. Add a bottle of seal conditioner when done. With the price of a new trany this should be done every 80,000 kilometers (50-60,000 miles) or check your owners manual for service intervals. Not a lot of shops have this machine so be selective. Might cost up to $200-250.00 for this service to get it done properly but a proper trany rebuild can be $1500-3000.00 or more in some cases on some vehicles.
Flushing the fluid?

But the system should be flushed. Just dropping the pan and draining the oil and changing the filter on your transmission leaves all the used fluid still in torque converter. Have the system evacuated and totally replacing ALL the fluid is a much better approach. It will cost you more but if you plan on keeping the Ford, it's a worthwhile investment.

How many fluid drain plugs on hyundai elentra 1998? 1 for oil 1 for trany and 1 more


You should have a drain plug on the Oil Pan for oil, the tranny requires you to pull the pan to drain the fluid, on on the radiator in order to flush the radiator and one on the rear end in order to check the rear end gear oil level. That is all.

I was asked by my boss, if i knew how to add transmission oil to his 01 ls lincon


For a 2002 Ls, checking the trany fluid must be done on a lift, theres a level checking and also adding plug on the bottom of the trany, even to add fluid you will need a pump to pump fluid into bottom of the trany pan, theres no dip stick on these cars, and car must be level. you can try doing this on the ground , you will see the plug on the trany pan, you remove the allen screw, size 3/16 allen key, and fluid should drain out, you should see a stream and that means its full, heres a few diagrams of the trany check plug, good day,johnjohn2_121.gifjohnjohn2_122.gifjohnjohn2_123.gif

I have a 97 Honda Passport,how do u check the transmission fluid?


Okay, this truck doesnt have a normal dip stick to check the fluid in trany,to check the trany fluid level engine must be warm and parked on level ground, being on level ground is important!, next start engine and move slector through all gears and ending in park, put ebrake on and let engine idle, then remove the check plug from the bottom of trany pan, note theres a drain plug and the level plug heres a diagram to help you locate the right plug, remove the plug with engine idling and the fluid should leak out, the fluid will stop when level is correct if the plug is removed and no fluid leaks out then add some until it drips out level hole.johnjohn2_50.gif

I was told by jiffy lube tech that i needed to change my final drive fluid and that it is different than my trans fluid can you please clear this up for me


If you have 4 wheel drive, you do have a final drive that uses gear oil, but I'm not sure you need to change it unless you do a lot of towing or mountain driving. If you do not have 4 wheel drive, there is no final drive separate from the transmission. OK?

When the preform the transmission service they will drain you transmission of its ATF fluid an replace it with new fluid. It is essentially an oil change for your transmission.


Lots of forgein car dealers say no but ive own and service nissan toyota and i dont change the fluid because you never get all the old oil out and then you mix new and old, what we do is called a trany flush done with a bg flush machine and is done every 30,000 miles unless its syntheic trany oil then at 100,000 miles, the flush is done with a cleaner and then a conditioner and removes 100% of the old oil. hope this helps.

2003 Ford Windstar.....81K miles......while cruising at top gear(D), if engine is b/w 1500-1800rpm, I get a barely noticeable "buffeting/sputtering". Within past 2 years, have had plugs/ignition...


the sreeing i would make sure belt is tight and have the power steering fluid flushed,you may what to change trany oil with a bg system flush and then after the flush replace the filter and pan gasket,as far as the sputtering it may be the trany or the engine misfiring,have the fuel preasure tested and maybe have the injectors cleaned with a motor vac service, hope this helps,

Flush and drain trans.


"i dont have that kind on money and the kids have games tomm", what does this have to do with your question? anyway just pull the lower radaitor hose off, that is the quickest way to get most of the coolant out of the engine and the radiator, then refill with water and repeat this drain out, after 2nd drainning refill with 50/50 mix extende life coolant, U will need 2 gallons, about $20 at Kragen or Autozone, Autozone maybe less, think it is on sale, about $15.
