Yeah, This car is gonna make you hate german manufacturers. Here it goes..... This car doesn't have one. There is a drain plug on the transmission pan, unscrew it. Next I want you to look for a tube that's pointing up. Your going to need a flexible tube of some sort for the next part. Connect the tube to the one attached to the transmission then to the trans fluid bottle. Make sure its tight. Now squeeze the bottle and let the rest of the old fluid flush out. Do this until you see New oil coming out. Now tighten up the screw back up and fill up the transmission with 3 quarts or what you feel is comfortable. Note: make sure you get the right type of trans fluid because every trans takes different fluid. Just ask an employee at your local autoparts store to look it up for you.

Unless it's a manual trans every transmission has a dipstick for checking fuid levels, a manual trans has a hex head plug for checking the gear oil level...

How many quarts of trans fluid does a 2000 ford explorer v6 need

Did you check your trans dip stick? The tranny dip stick usually has a quart low mark. If this is a manual tranny, that is different, you didn't specify automatic or manual tranny?
{Automatic tranny, the spec is for dry fill, only. 10--12.7 quarts . Dry fill means not a drop of tranny fluid in the vehicle.}
You have to check proper fluid level, that is your responsibility. Your owners manual may have some of this info?

you have to locate the tranny dip stick and pull it out- then get a funnel that will fit down the hole- and slowly pour in tranny fliud. check level by putting dip stick back in (allow time for fuild to drip down out of the tube) make sure engine is running and is warmed up while reading fluid level on dipstick. Make sure it is the tranny dip stick and not the oil dipstick. oil is usually yellow and says oil on it- Trans is usually red.

It feels like the tranny is slipping when you

you could have damage or excessive wear in the tranny or you could just have crud blocking some passages or the fluid intake filter ... if there are no other signs of damage .. like particles on the dip stick or a burnt smell or darkened fluid then you could try the transmition forced cleaning service (flush) (available at many auto shops ) .. thats where they force a cleaning fluid thru all the lines and torque converter ... thats all done without even removing the pan ... they back flush the filter but dont usually replace it .. (you have to drop the pan to do that ) .. the trany flush cost a little over $100 .. so its a gamble .. if there is excessive wear or other damage then it wont help .. a mechanic with experience in transmitions could make a better judgment by looking .. if the fluid smells bad or is dark or cruddy then it is not likely fixable by just cleaning .. of course make sure you have the proper amount of fluid right now .. low fluid can cause your simptoms as well .. dont mix fluid types ... use only the recommended type ..
the tranny fluid level is normally checked running and in park ... that may be listed on the dip stick or in the auto manual ..

Cant find tranny dipstick

I am not sure if I remember or not , but if you were standing by the pass side tire lean over back of engine there should be 2 dip sticks the oil then right next to it but lower is the trans . you might have to reach your hand behind the pass side cyl head / intake and feel for it. and most mercedes do not come with dip sticks they have special caps on them that actualy break when removing . the dealer ships or mercedes service shops have the dip stick and new cap. so yours most likely will just have this cap not dip stick . I cant remember any late model that came with a dip stick . mercedes only wants certified techs even checking it.

2006 ford taurus leaked tranny fluid out of dip stick

You need to find out were the fluid is leaking from first...
It may have been because the the dip stick was half way out...
Id just keep an eye on the fluid levels and if it stays the same than that's what it could have been.
Keep us posted!!!

Dip stick

You don't unless you can hook the car up to a computer. There isn't a dip stick. There is a procedure to follow that when the ATF gets to a certain temp. you open up the little drain hole on the bottom of the tranny. If anything drips out you are fine. If nothing drips out you are low on fluid. It isn't the most user friendly way of doing things but it keeps people from mesing with the transmissions and putting the wrong fluid in. The fill hole is towards the front side of the car on the transmission with a red safety cap covering a plug that pulls out. It might vary depending on which transmission you have, but probably not. I have the TDI engine and this is how mine is setup.
