Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
Transmission fluid check where is it located on car?
If automatic the dip stick is under the bonnet on the left hand side if you are facing the front of the engine it is at the back of the engine just to the right of the rocker cover and may be hard to see because of wires it has a black loop handle ok

Normally (99%) this is located on the passenger side of the tranny. However, being it's fairly new model, it's eithe ron the other side, or simply does not have one. If it does not, I suggest changing the fluid. There will be a plug for draining, (bottom), and a fill plug (near top on side (usually driver side). When you start filling, you'll know its full when it starts coming out the fill plug. Put threaded plug back in as soon as you can.
Before performing this, refer to the dealer or repair manual for details.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

when you open your hood look in the back of the motor on the left side.. you should see a stick with a circle on the end of it for your finger have you vehicle running warmed up that means let it run for 10 or 15 min. and then pull the stick out.. wipe it off real good. stick it back in all the way.. pull it back out and hold it horizontally and check it.. it's sometimes hard to read because it has bubbles on it.. try it a couple of times to get an accurate reading good-luck ray

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid
