    Thanks for your help. I know where the dipstick is, so I'll add the fluid there.

Automatic Transmission Fluid Automatic transmission fluids can be broken down into two types, Dexron® III and Ford type F. These fluids are specific to the transmission using them. Don't assume that all Ford vehicles use type F, they don't!

  • Dexron® III, sometime referred to as multi-purpose ATF. This replaces the old Type A, Suffix A, was recommended by GM, Chrysler and AMC between 1956-1967. It also supercedes Dexron® and Dexron® II fluids. Ford vehicles 1977 and later with the C6 transmission or the Jatco transmission in the Granada and Monarch also use this fluid. Ford refers to this fluid as Mercon® , or transmissions where type H or CJ where recommended.
  • Type F fluid is recommended by Ford Motor Co. for most late model Fords and certain imports, and contains certain frictional compounds required for proper operation in these transmissions.
There is not much of a problem here, since the bottles are clearly marked to indicate the type of fluid. If you are in doubt, check your owner's manual.
Manual Transmission Lubricant Manny manual transmissions use gear oil viscosity of about SAE 80W or 90 grade. This is a gear oil viscosity and has nothing to do with motor oil viscosity. For instance, SAE 80W gear oil can have the same viscosity characteristics as SAE 40 or 50 motor oil. However, not all-manual transmissions use gear oil. For years, Chrysler Corporation specified the use of automatic transmission fluid in their manual transmission vehicles. Some transaxles, both foreign and domestic, use either ATF or engine oil to lubricate the transmission. For this reason, it is always best to consult your owner's manual or your dealer if you are unsure about what sort of lubricant to use in your manual transmission.
NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. How do I add transmission - 89531p07.jpg

    Thank you for that information, however, I need to know where to actually add the fluid. Do I add it to the tube where the dipstick is? Also, can bad battery cables cause a car to stop running when backing out of my driveway?

    If you have a dipstick, that's where you generally add fluid.

    Some cars have a speedometer cable gear to remove to add fluid. This type is less common.

    If you don't have a dipstick, and just have a screw on cover, that's also where you can add fluid

    to some manual transmissions.

I have a leak -looks like transmission fluid- can't find where it is coming from. 2004 nissan quest

put a clean cardboard sheet under the vehicle and keep an eye out for where the leak falls from.. follow up from that spot until you see the fluid itself..sometimes its hard to see but if you use a strong flashlight you may see will look brownish or brownish-red in color..if its black then its motor oil...if its clearer then it may be brake fluid or power steering..

Where does transmission fluid go

On any car with a transmission dip stick, you add transmission fluid through that tube. Juat make sure you use the right fluid for your vehicle and check the level with the transmission fluid fully warmed up and the car idleing in park.

Do I need to bleed the old brake fluid of my nissan quest (1995)before refill the brake fluid reservoir, or can I mix the old one with the new one?

I don't see any reason why you couldn't just add brake fluid, it can be a bit involved in removing all the old brake fluid.

Check with your local auto parts store...Napa, Car-Quest, O'Reilly's, etc. They can tell you exactly what kind of fluid it needs, and how much. (I believe it's something like 9.5 quarts)

Yes. Tranny fluid goes in the same place you check the fluid--where the stick is, the fluid goes.
