It goes in through the dipstick. Just use a small throat funnel, but take your time and keep checking the level. You don't want to over fill it. Check the fluid level while the engine is running, not off/cold.

the problem was changing that fluid! rarely happen, but it will happen when people change transmission fluid on older car then the car messed up. when you change the fluid you washed all the friction material on the clutch surface by putting in new fluid.

1988 Ford Bronco II shifts into 1st and 3rd gear hard and some times pops out of gear.


Sounds like the first and third gear synchronizer is worn out.
You might want to talk to a transmission shop to confirm.

Reverse lights not working on 1988 ford bronco 2


Look on the transmission and there is a sensor that hooks to the reverse lights and is threaded into the transmission. First check the bulbs and then check the fuse to the reverse lights and then the actual switch on the tranny.

Sounds like a gear lockup, two choices take transmission out and find someone to rebuild it or would have to go to salvage yard and find another one. a new rebuild is approx 1,300.00 or salvage yard is approx 300.00..

On my 88 bronco ii there is a cable dangling from the underside with a red gear connected to the end of it. What is it and where do i hook it up?


That is probably your speedometer gear. It goes in the side of the transmission toward the back of the transmission. There is usually a bracket holding the gear into the transmission with a small bolt holding the bracket. You are probably loosing some transmission fluid also..

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.
