Question about 1993 Ford Tempo
Fill through the dip stick hole. There is a special funnel available for this ... find at auto parts stores or discount houses that handle auto accessories. This funnel will have a real long 'snout'. If you have a regular funnel, you can add a piece of 3/8 inch hose to do the same thing. If you have to buy the hose, you might as well buy the funnel.
Make sure you put in Ford approved fluid!!!!!

Get a funnel and pour tha fluid in the dip stick tube while the motor is running . Make saure its the transmission and not the oil dip stick . Most trans dip sticks are at the back of the motor

Check your manual, but you may not have one. Quite a few newer cars no longer have dipsticks for the trans fluid.

I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!
Keep using Fixya
