Hello , Nothing to worry about this plug is from the factory assembly line, it is used to prevent debris from entering the trans prior to the dipstick tube being intstalled. Once the dipstick tube goes in the plug is pushed into the pan, and sits there until the first trans service is performed. Just throw it away. If i have been helpful please give me a rating, this helps me out thanks have a great day. RJ

CHANGE FLY WHEEL ON 1987 FORD BRONCO 11


Changing the fly wheel means dropping the trany pulling the clutch. First remove both drive shafts then unhook the clutch line to the slave on the top of the bellhouse this should be a small U shaper pin you have to pull out a piece of wire can be looped through and make it easier to pull it out.

Once that is out of the way take the tanny cross member out and the exhaust Y pipe needs to come out unless you have a body lift and put a jack or something under the transfercase then take out the bottom bell housing bolts and then the top bell housing bolts then you should be able to work the tranny back mind the bolts on the radius arm cross member you may need to back them down sometimes.

Once it is out then you will have 6 of 13mm bolts on the clutch and 6 of 16 or 17mm bolts holding the fly wheel on there should be blue locktight on the flywheel bolts.

Things to note make sure the fly you your putting on has been machined if it is used put a new pilot bearing in the fly your putting on unless it is new put new clutch on or at the very least a new clutch disk trust me it is worth it.

The bolts on the drive shaft can be a pain spray them with WD-40 or equivalent the night before put never sieze on these when you put them back. When your putting the trany back in watch the clutch line it wants to be down there and it is easy to get it caught.

When you take the thin aluminum plate off take care of it with out that plate you can't start your truck right.

Additional details could find in Autozone.com. Hope this helps.

2003 Ford Windstar.....81K miles......while cruising at top gear(D), if engine is b/w 1500-1800rpm, I get a barely noticeable "buffeting/sputtering". Within past 2 years, have had plugs/ignition...


the sreeing i would make sure belt is tight and have the power steering fluid flushed,you may what to change trany oil with a bg system flush and then after the flush replace the filter and pan gasket,as far as the sputtering it may be the trany or the engine misfiring,have the fuel preasure tested and maybe have the injectors cleaned with a motor vac service, hope this helps,

I am going to attemp to change the tranny fluid in my '92 Taurus. Where is the drain plug underneath and is it true that it takes 12.8 quarts of fluid? Is there anything else I should know before I start?


well first theres no plug to drain fluid, you will have to remove the trany pan, the pan gasket and filter need to be replaced,next thing is that it doesnt hold 12.8 qts, thats only if it was dry empty,just dropping the pan doesnt get all the oil out, the converter is still full and the lines and cooler,i would replace the filter and pan gasket then take to a garage and have a bg trany service done, this service gets 100% of the old oil out,your doing a drain and fill, this only takes about 6 qts,good luck.

I have a Ford 1995 Ford F150 4x4 with 5.8L and E4OD trans.My problem is a vibration occurs at approx. 60,80 and 100 kph.I have changed all wheel brgs.drive shaft,transfer box,rear end overhauled--so think...


I also have a 95 Ford F150 4x4 5.0l, extended cab two piece drive shaft. E40d trany in fourth gear accelerating or not it will vibrate badly but only slightly in any other gears. The first thing I did was rebuild the trany, no luck same exact conditions. All clutchs and bands replaced, synthic fluid, new torque converter, and a shift kit from TCI. Still does the same thing.

Where to put gear box fluid in a ford mondeo 2002 automatic it takes a long time to change gear


The automatic transmission fluid goes in the same place where the Trani dipstick is.. It is called the filler tube.. Just use a funnel..

When checking the fluid - have the engine running in park..
Trani fluid is measured in pints not quarts on the dipstick..

The shifting problem might not be from low Trani fluid.. It could be caused by other things..

IF the fluid is low - that could cause the trani to slip and cause internal damage..

Good luck..

2005 ford taurus ----transmission flush or drop pan? which is best?


It makes no sense to me to just drop the pan.. That only exchanges around half the fluid..

I allways do a complete exchange - to include the tourque converter.. Allot of fluid hiding in there too..

Makes allot more sense to me..
It cost more but its worth it.. I get it done at a trusted quick lube place.. I pay about $120.00 & I watch them closely...

A trani can prety much last forever if maintained very well..

Allot of people dont know that - dirty & old fliud is what causes leaks & damage..

I do it every 50-k miles.. My trani has 150-k miles on it and runs like the day it was new - AND nice and clean with no leaks ;o)
Knock on wood lol..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Ford ATF is different from Dexron. Ford fluid contains banana oil, Dexron doesn't. Use only what it calls for. Or, you will always wonder. Good Luck.

Was the wrong trans fluid used


Merc V is correct, i would recomend motocraft, but castrol should be just fine. i would check to see that you didn't double gasket the filter, some times they can be a pai to get out.
