There are going to be two dip sticks one might say trans on it that's what your looking for. Drive around the block to get the tranny warm then pull out that dip stick and the fluid should be red and the end will tell you if you need more fluid or not

2004 Ford Sportrac having problems with trans OD flashing on and off and sticking in gear?


When the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) isn't engaging or locks in engagement the light flashes a warning...The TCC solenoid may stick due to dirty transmission fluid...If the Check Engine Light
(CEL) is not lit have your transmission fluid changed...If it is lit the code is probably pointing at a defective TCC, Computer (PCM) or the clutch itself... you can take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read and define the trouble code for free...saailer

Why does my overdrive off light starts flashing on my 99 mercury mountianeer


On some makes of vehicles the overdrive light flashes because the computer has logged a fault code,sometimes because it is overtemp eg too hot (maybe trans fluid issue might require servicing,or fluid level is low. Try checking fluid level and condition if possible. Good luck there.

Slips out of gear or down shifts by itself and once it stayed in 3rd gear auto trans with 98000mi just started yesterday no warning check engine light is on


Automatic overdrive and/or torque converter failure. Properly check your trans. fluid level. Might be as simple as that. It should be at proper level, and red in color. Hopefully all you need is a tranny fluid exchange service....do the filter as well. Hope this is helpful.

99 silverado wont engage in to overdrive.


have you checked the trans fluid level? if level is good. check shift fuse in fuse panel. if fuse good, the trans screen may need replacement. the fluid could be bad and needs drained and replaced. if none of those you need a transmission repair.

93 taurus overdrive not working


IF you have checked the fluid level and it is good then if you look at the fluid on the trans fluid dip stick at it is a dirty brownish color then your transmission is bad. If the color is a nice clear reddish and the fluid level is good then Overdrive is probably gone. Replace transmission or drive it until it quits altogether.

'99 silverado 4x4,new trans,no gears.


I don't see you did anything wrong per your description.
With the engine off, check the level of the transmission oil, replace the dipstick, start the truck and recheck the fluid level, level should drop. This will indicate the front pump is working.

Next, with truck running, put transmission into any gear, then return to park position. Do you hear any ratcheting noise.

Let me know.
Regards,

How can I add trans fluid to my 99 caravan? I cannot locate it


If u know u need to add trans fluid, I assume u found the dipstick to check the fluid level? If so, that's where u add the fluid, w/ engine running and using a funnel, slowly add it. Shift thru the gears slowly several times, and check level again. Don't overfill, it's bad for the tranny.

Transmission-overdrive not working properly


check the transmission fluid first .
============
overdrive allows the engine to run at lower RPM's , which increases the fuel
economy and also the transmission runs cooler
