You have to take out the perimeter bolts of the transmission pan (the flat pan on the bottom side of the tranny). Have a big catch pan ready under the trans while you're doing this because one end of the pan usually drops unexpectedly while loosening the last couple bolts and just dumps a ridiculous amount of stinky trans fluid all over you. once the pan is removed, place it on the ground and take a picture of it w/ your cell phone, go to the auto parts store to get a trans filter kit, 6-7 quarts of dexron III/mercon ATF and a small funnel with a really skinny end on it. make sure you take the gasket out of the box and compare the gasket shape w/ the picture you took before you leave the store to make sure you've got the right kit. when you get home, pull the old filter out of the bottom of the trans (should look just like the new one in the kit you just bought). make sure you don't leave behind the old O-ring in the filter hole after you pull it, if it is stuck in there you'll have to pry it out w/ a small flat screwdriver being careful not to scratch up the metal wall of the hole too bad. now shove the new filter/o-ring in the hole. now clean up any leftover gasket material from the mating surfaces of the trans pan and the trans itself w/ a gasket scraper or razor blade (don't gouge the metal). now lay the gasket on the pan. if you put a thin bead of RTV sealant on the pan first, this can help hold the gasket in place somewhat as you maneuver it back onto the trans. then bolt it back up, starting w/ the corner bolts to help keep the gasket from falling into the pan as you're putting the rest of the bolts in. while doing this make sure you're not overtightening the bolts as this can ruin a brand new gasket (especially cork gaskets). it's safest to use the actual torque spec, but you can just put them all in "pretty tight" and then snug up individual bolts if you notice a drip from the pan later. now pull the trans dipstick and dump 4 quarts in there through the small funnel you got earlier. now turn the engine on and leave it running, adding a half-quart at a time until the fluid is in the zone on the dipstick while the engine is hot. make sure you check underneath for leaks when you're finished, snug up bolts as needed. you're done.

Where do you put transmission fluid in 1988 honda accord

If this is a manual trany you need to fill from under the car on the side of the case, if your car has an automatic trany then open the hood and look at the left side of trany it will be behind the radiator fan on the trany way down you will see a dip stick this is where you check the level and fill or add fluid, you add into the same hole as the dip stick goes into, when checking the level of the trany oil make sure the car is on level ground and engine is warm, the dip stick unscrews to remove and when checking the level just put back in hole dont screw down to check level, then remove and it just read near full, if between add and full thats okay, if at add then add a pint go through gear and recheck.

It's possible, especially if the used trans sat unused for a while. When you change the filter, make sure that the trans has fresh, proper fluid.

Where to put gear box fluid in a ford mondeo 2002 automatic it takes a long time to change gear

The automatic transmission fluid goes in the same place where the Trani dipstick is.. It is called the filler tube.. Just use a funnel..

When checking the fluid - have the engine running in park..
Trani fluid is measured in pints not quarts on the dipstick..

The shifting problem might not be from low Trani fluid.. It could be caused by other things..

IF the fluid is low - that could cause the trani to slip and cause internal damage..

Good luck..
