On a standard transmission the filler plug is a square plug, half-way up the side on the trani. Check that the filler plug can be removed before you remove the drain plug. Which is at the bottom of the trani.

My 1981 ford f100 brake light comes on when I come to a stop but goes off when I start accelerating?


check the brake fluid level, there is a float in the resavor when you stop all the fluid moves to the frount of the resavor causing the float to drop and turn on the light. fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid.

I have a 1969 Ford f100 3 speed manual trans, column shift it some times gets stuck between first & second gears, when this happens I crawl under the truck and move the shift linkage back and forth,...


i had a '71 dodge with three-on-the-tree that experienced binding and the only way to fix it is to replace worn parts. as for the lights, find out which connetor supplies power. perhaps it is faulty or loose. also, there may be a separate fuse located on or near the instument cluster specifically for that application.

Ned to now wat the firing order for dist cop shood be for a 1987 ford f100 pick-up truck 300sixcylender stick shift model#333


The F100 ended in 1983, so there is some confusion on your 1987 Ford F100. The F150 started in 1983 and was available in 1987, but not the F100. You have this listed under the 1981 Ford F100 category.
The 300 CID = 4.9L In-Line (Straight) 6-Cylinder.
In order to best answer your question I have included both the 1981 F100 4.9L and 1987 F150 4.9L below. The only difference is with the Distributor Cap Configuration and Connections.

For the 1981 F100 300cid=4.9L:
Firing order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
...6

...4
...3
...2

Distributor:

For the 1987 F150 300cid=4.9L:
Firing Order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:

..6

Clutch pedal fails to return fully after depressing.


If your truck has a hydraulic clutch it will have an extra reservoir, near the brake fluid reservoir, and the clutch side uses brake fluid also. Your problem I think, is that you are low on fluid. That can cause the problem you describe. Look for this extra reservoir and check it for low fluid, it may be dirty but should have full / low mark on the side.

Transmission for a 1978 Ford F100


The transmission should have the label "FMX" upon the center lower drivers side of the body. This was Ford's largest and heaviest tranny they ever made for commercial(privately owned) trucks.They only produced this model for 8 years.

My 2004 pontiac montanas tranny slipes occasinally when taking off from a stop light.


the cause of this is either low fluid in the trans or a leaking internal seal in the trans, this causes a loss of hydraulic pressure and then the resaulting slippage
