Put Five quarts of transmission fluid Mercon V in it. Start the engine and take it for a short drive so the transmission shifts through all the gears and then check the dipstick level. You may need to add a bit of a sixth quart, but you should be fine with five. When you check the level and get it to the right mark write how much it took on a piece of paper and keep it in the manual or the glove box.

Can a2005 ford f150 8 cylinder fx4 with a new transmission pull a 26 ft jayco trailer

When you start up hills,you'd do well to lock out overdrive. On level or barely upgrade,overdrive is okay. Standard diameter tires are better than oversized diameter tires also. don-ohio (:^)

I have a Ford F 150 2007 v8 it needs a automatic transmission will a 2005 Ford F 150 transmission be compatible

I wouldn't be installing a used trans,
if that is why your asking

Rebuild yours

No reason to need a trans on a 7 to 8 year old vehicle

I would guess you never change the fluid every 2 to 3 years

Most Ford Transmissions have known problems, brand new,
& they are well know by the shops that rebuild them

So get it rebuilt & do all the updates or suffer the same fate
every 70 to 100,000 miles

You would have to ask a trans shop or have a dealer run some
number off the unit, to answer that

If you see different wiring, etc, then,no,unless it can be switched
over to the 2005 unit.

Is the other trans from the same motor & same type vehicle

These things are all computer controlled,you can't just assume
you can mix & match from one year to the next

It feels like my transmission is skipping gear and or shifting early what could this be

Automatic transmission, I assume, check the fluid level, as if it gets low, the transmission will slip. If that is not the problem, look in your owners manual th see where the transmission control module is located and you may need to take it to a garage to have it tested.

What kind of fluid do I use in my 2006 F-150 transmission?

If automatic (probably is) you will be using Automatic Transmission Fluid. Please Ensure that you buy the correct type as some of the cheaper brands will actually damage you transmission. for further details, it would be in your owners manual, if not, try contacting your local ford dealer and just ask there service department.

good luck
