H, yiour vehicle has no transmission dip stick, here is the procedure from Lincoln.

Use a OBDII scan equipment to monitor Transmission Fluid Temperature, start the vehicle and run engine at idle until fluid temperature is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). Shift through gears slowly stopping in each gear allowing it to engage. Put in PARK position. With engine running put vehicle up on hoist level as possible. Hold the larger drain plug with a wrench and remove the small center plug. Allow the fluid to drain, making sure that the fluid is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). If the fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at the correct level. Reinstall the small center plug and tighten to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).


You will need a special fitting available from Lincoln and screw it into where the fluid level indicator was. Add new transmission fluid to a suction gun, attach the gun to the fitting and add fluid in 1/2 pint increments, wait one minute, if the fluid comes out in a thin stream or drips the level is correct. If not add another 1/2 pint.

SOURCE: Where do i add transmission fluid in my 2004

There is no need to add,unless it leaks

The way it is filled, is through a 3/8" pipe plug on to tail housing
or blowing it into the center of the trans pans drain plug,after
removing the center 1/8" pipe plug and using an adaptor going to
your pressurized container.

With the car at 180 degrees or more and level,remove the center
pipe plug and the fluid should just run out.

The drain plug it's self ,serves as the level indicator,it has a tube
extending upward ,that establishes the correct level.

SOURCE: lincoln ls transimission fluid

I believe that trans is of the 5R55N/S/W family, and the fluid level AND fill are both located on the bottom trans pan.There is a procedure and fill cautions as well as tools required,as per Ford Motor Co.

There actually is not a transmission dipstick for the Lincoln LS. The only way to access the transmission is via the fill/drain port that is on the underside of the transmission. It is essentially a small bolt within a bigger bolt. It also takes a pressurized machine to fill the transmission. Ford kinda gets you with this design, you have to take it to a dealer to get it serviced.

No dipstick on the transmission, you have to check it under the transmission, where do i put the fluid in? V8 Lincoln LS automatic


According to Jeff on CarGurus.com http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t7463_ds502499 "Remove the smaller bolt on the bottom of the transmission pan. Then remove the small bolt at the back of the case and add fluid there until it starts to run out the bottom of the case where the other bolt was removed. When it starts running out it is full. "

My Lincoln ls shifts very hard from 2nd gear to 3rd gear . what is the problem?


Hi David. I am a big fan of starting with the cheap and simple fixes first. Some people find that a low transmission fluid level caused the problem you described and when they simply added a little transmission fluid, they solved the problem. Like your car oil, transmission oil can get dirty, only with transmission fluid, dirt can clog the filter and the control body of the tranny system. About 70 % of all the auto tranny problems are solved by changing the transmission fluid.

However, on a Lincoln site, one person stated:
"I had my tranny fluid changed which made it shift even harder. the mechanic told me to take it to Ford and have them reset the computer. So I pulled the battery cable off for a minute and put it back on to reset the computer. Now the car shifts like it should... Try this first, its free".

On the Lincoln forum, Tom stated, " the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Pack needs to be replaced. This seems to be a common issue on the transmission you have. There are 3 pressure control solenoids & 4 shift solenoids in one plastic part ,made by Bosch. You remove the trans pan,the gasket is reuseable silicone You remove the filter, You remove approx 7 -- T30 bolts, holding the solenoid pack & one 10mm electrical connector bolt. HPN-9L2Z7G391A about $400 for the part and add on labor. Add in some new Mercon V and filter kit and your good to go. "
Good luck.

Good

Can I add non-slip transmission additive to Lincoln ls


Absolutely not

You don't add anything like that
to any automatic

I used to own a trans repair shop

You only use the correct fluid

If you have shift issues and I know
you do,you change the solenoid
pressure control pack,after you
change the fluid 3 or 4 times.

Change ---never flush

The ONLY THING- EVER to enter a
trans would be RED Lubgard,by
International Lubricants,avail at parts store.

You MUST,ALWAYS change trans and power
steering fluids every 30,000 miles on ALL
your vehicles,you NEVER go over 3 years

How do you add transmission fluid to a sealed transmission, 2002 lincoln LS


the transmission is sealed so you shouldn't have to add fluid unless there is a leak find the leak first to add fluid there is a bolt on the right side of the trany i think that's where you add the fluid but you will have to use a pump because of the angle.
