Just change transmission filter in 95 ford windstar put 5 quarts in stick still read empty. how much fuild does it take?


IF YOU REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION IT TAKES ABOUT 8 QUARTS. 3 IN THE CONVERTER AND 5 ON THE PAN. NORMALLY IT ONLY TAKES 5 IF YOU CHANGE THE OIL AND FILTER.. MAKE SURE THE STICK IS GOING ALL THE WAY... YOU MUST ALSO CHECK OIL WHEN ENGINE IS ON.. NOT OFF...

Need to know where the dip stick for a 2004 vw passat is or if it has a dip stick to check the transmission fuild ?


unfortunately your car does not have a dipstick. if it is an automatic transmission, there is a specialized procedure involving the dealers scan tool to check the level.

How and where do I add power steering fuild to a 1989 Brougham? Can't find the dip stick for the steering fuild and don;t kn ow when I should add the fuild. Can you help?


You add fluid at the P/S reservoir which is belt driven. There is a large cap on top. Remove the cap and there is a built in dip stick. Unless you have a leak you will never have to add fluid.

Check transmmision fuild


locate the transmission dipstick on the right or left side of the engine, toward the rear of the engine. it is similar to the oil dipstick, which is probably marked "engine oil" anyway. make sure the engine is hot and running. take the dipstick out and wipe it clean. notice the hash marks and writing inscribed on the stick. the level should be between the hash mark area for the "hot" marks. if it is low, but visible on the stick, add a 1/2 pint to a pint at a time. DON'T OVERFILL. use the correct trans fluid. probably MERCON V, the trans fluid type might be marked on the stick. it's also in the owners manual.

if you have a manual trans, you'll have to get under the vehicle and remove the fill plug located on the left side upper part of the trans. it has a fairly large head and should be easy to spot. use your finger to check the level. it should be 1/2 inch from the top of the hole.

My clutch is sticking


check the fuild level in the clucth mastercylinder. it is more than likely a hydalic problem. if clucth was worn thin it would want to slip. sounds like it not wanting to disengauge. hope this helps.

I do not know how to check the transmission fluid level on my 97 Isuzu Rodeo. There is not a dip stick to check. How do i find out if my level is low?


there are two pan plugs, the one that it higher you need to open it and if the fuild is at the right high it will drible out of the hole.

if the fuild is to low it will not come out and you will hae to get it fuild at a service center or you will have to find a why to get the fuild in the tranny from the outside of the truck.

i when to the hardware and get a funnel, then got a long peice of holes to reach the top filler hole in the pan that would fit very snug in the hole.

hold the holes in the filler hole as someone fills the funnel, be very careful not to over fill tho as it may be hazzardous to the tanny and seals.

How do you check the transmission fluid there is


You do not. All you can do is have a reliable service center flush trany, replace filter, and hope they put enough in.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISION FLUID


you have to locate the tranny dip stick and pull it out- then get a funnel that will fit down the hole- and slowly pour in tranny fliud. check level by putting dip stick back in (allow time for fuild to drip down out of the tube) make sure engine is running and is warmed up while reading fluid level on dipstick. Make sure it is the tranny dip stick and not the oil dipstick. oil is usually yellow and says oil on it- Trans is usually red.

How do i change the transmition fluid and wich


Consult your owners manual for the type of fuild to be used, don't recall if Honda bothered to put a drain plug on the transmission, most vehicle manufacturers do not! This will mean removal of the bottom pan from the tranny, of course prior to doing this purchase a replacment gasket and filter for the vehicle also have an adequeate quantity of fuild to prour back usually no more then 6 quarts is required, expect it to be less. Have a containor sufficient to hold that volume. Normally without a drain plug you would start loosening all the bolts holding the pan, only slightly, then select the corner that is simplest to reach and put your drian pan under it, this may require raising the vehicle off the ground and placing it on jack stands, unless you have access to a vehicle lift, loosen and/or remove the bolts in that corner till the fuilds drain into the holding pan, don't attempt this on a HOT vehicle, the fuild can be several hundred degrees and burns are possible. After you have drained the fuild, remove the pan, then remove the filter. Install a new filter and replace the gasket, some additional adhesive helps to make the new gasket stick to the pan, talk to the counter person where you buy the filter and gasket, they will recoomend something the can also tell you the quanity and type of fluid to use. If you lack the equipment to do all this then a local transmission shop will usualy have a fluid change special and they get dirty and dispose of the old fuild for you!
Good Luck

Tranny


Chryslers need clean transmisson fuild and the right type of fuild. I would check the transmisson fuild level and top up if needed. If the fuild looks old and dirty have the transmisson serviced witha fuild and filter change - 50-100 buck could save you big $$$ on a trans job later
