Usually a transmission service interval is every 30k miles. I would have it checked, or check it yourself, at 15k miles to see if it looks or smells burned (dark red in color with a pungent scent) to determine if it needs to be serviced before 30k miles.

Add fluid transmission


TRANSMISSION FLUID

Checking automatic transmission fluid

The 5R55N transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.

Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for

fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid.

However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not

working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you

notice some sign of fluid leakage.

Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

I dont know how to change my transmission fluid on a nissan versa 2007.


The really cool thing about these vehicles is that if you perform regular scheduled fluid maintenence, you only have to remove the transmission drain plug. Located on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan, simply remove the drain plug, allowing fluid to drain and reinstall plig. Add 2.5qts of mfr recommended transmission fluid as an initial fill. Start vehicle and go shift through all the gears while sitting still. Put vehicle in park. Top off fluid as necessary.

Trouble changeing gear 2 to 3 to 4 it seems as if the gears are really close to each other and seems to have gone stiff


I would recommend that you change the transmission fluid. Most people do not think about changing it in a manual transmission, but it should be done on a regularly scheduled maintenance.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

Where is trans. filter located on 06 hyundai tucson 2.7 auto.4x4


The filter is inside the trans. It is not under maintenance schedule unless the transmission has undergone a major malfunction and needs to be replaced during overhaul. This is done at the factory. The only maintenance schedule is fluid replacement/flush every 30,000 miles.
