SOURCE: how to add or check transmission oil

this t-bird has a 5r55s trans. it does not have a dipstick.
it has a "standpipe" type leveling system.
to check fluid level the tranmission has to be within 80-120 degree f.
take the plug out of the center of the fitting located on the bottom of the trans pan. it is a torx 30.
running in park the fluid should drip slower than a coffee pot.
to add you need a npt thread fitting the same as the little plug you removed. and attach a bottle of mercon5 and hose to it. squeeze the bottle to add fluid
then recheck it by letting it drain out to a fast dribble. then install the little plug back in.ead6e26.gif remember 80-120 degree fluid temp.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

Does not have a dip stick.

Start the vehicle set park brake

In the side if the transmission oil pan a bigger bolt with a small bolt in the center.

Remove smaller center bolt trans fluid should drip out at a fairly constant rate if not its low.

Hope this tip helps.

SOURCE: Capacity of fluid for a transmission of a 2006 F150 5.4L Truck. Book says 13.9 quarts I emptied 3-4 quarts.

you must have just drained the pan? There is much more held in the converter. The one I am rebuilding this week is an 05 and doesn't have a drain plug on it (not many do anymore). A flush is the only way to change it all out. 13.9qts sounds like the total amount if the trans was completely empty, converter and all

If the transmission was rebuilt 2 years ago the fluid and filter did not need to be changed. In a 1981 there are no trouble codes to retrieve so whoever suggested that is out to lunch, Unfortunatley you need to get the transmission rebuilt again, hopefully it gets done better this time. Using the dexron oil in Ford transmissions is something transmission shops do because they don't want to stock different fluids. While it's not likely that using dexron oil lead to the failure it would be better to use mercon or type F oil.

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.

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.
