How to change the transmission oil or fluid ?

You do not give the make and model, or whether it is auto or manual, but on most cars there will be a drain plug on the bottom of the trans casing, at the rear, looking like this (at right)

and a fill plug halfway up (left).

On some auto trans there is no fill plug, and these are filled thru the dipstick tube.

Drive around a bit to circulate and warm the fluid, then remove the drain plug first. Drain the fluid into a container (and do not put it into the street drain or sewer). Then replace the drain plug and tighten to about 20 ft-lb, firmly but not enormously.

If present remove the fill plug and fill to the bottom lip of the hole then replace the plug like the first one. You can buy the fluid in bottles with a fill tube to make this easier.

A 97 2.6LT 2 wheel drive auto Rodeo,took box out when i put it back in it haze no gears like its not getting oil,.why

the problem may be in the installation process of the box
the correct procedure is to put the torque converter onto the shaft of the transmission first and push it all the way back to engage the oil pump for the transmission
install the transmission then pull the torque converter forward to install the bolts through the flexi plate
putting the torque converter in first then putting the box up generally results in the drive for the oil pump not connecting properly in the torque converter

What is righ amount of oil i must put in the gearbox

if auto - the level on the dip stick
if manual remove the filler plug in the side of the box and the right amount is when the oil runs out of that fill hole
the oil level is at the thread s of the hole
if there are 2 plugs in the side of the box , remove both and put oil in the upper one until it runs out of the bottom hole replace plugs and do up tight.
point of interest
all manual boxes, transfer cases and diff oil levels are to the bottom of the fill hole thread.

Where is the water pump on a Ford KJ Laser?

The water pump on the 92 Laser is easily replaced. You just need to untension the the belt driving the bump. Once you have done that all you need to do is undo the bolts and take the pump into your local auto parts dealer. Now that you have the pump install it and retension the belt.

U actually have to remove alternator belt and powersteering/a/c belts, then remove timing belt cover, remove timing belt adjuster, and slide timing belt off top pulley, making sure you mark it before removing it, so as to put it back in same position. Next, unbolt 2 bolts at bottom of water pump (this is a bit fiddly, but doable, then, undo water pump, replace with new water pump, being sure to use gasket cement, aswell as new gasket, which should be supplied with pump, then put it all back together, in reverse order of removal. Fill cooling system, check for leaks, and voila, u have done it :)

I have a 1996 ford ranger how do i put gear oil in my gear box

Im guessing you have a 4x4 well in the rear of the transfer case you will find two plugs that have a square center one is higher than the other the upper one is the fill the bottom is the drain it require u to use the ratchet square drive by itself to remove the plug,now if you are asking about a 2 wheel drive standard transmission its the same thing but located on the side of the transmission,the way to fill it is with a pump container in some cases sold with fluid already in it ask for a pump at the auto parts. hope this helps you..

Where do u puttrans fluid for 2000 escort?

hello carltondoesl

Did you empty the old stuff first? To do this you need to remove the transmission pan and it should all come out from there. Scrape off the old gasket and put in a new filter and gasket which you can get from an auto parts store. Then put the pan back on and you fill it through the dipstick tube. You may need a long skinny funnel to help get it in. Poor in the minimum recommended amount, drive it for 5 minutes and check and add as needed. Make sure you don't over add as it is easier to add than remove. Let me know if you have any further questions. Good luck

How do i check the transmission fluid

transmission fluid you can check easy way the gear box is one oil to be so you can see in the middle of the gear box filling plug remove that with spanner if you see oil coming from hole that is fine you don't put more just putted back and tight. if you don't see any oil just use your finger front part through if the front part of your finger touch the oil that is also fine means ok. but is the oil is very low from that place you must fill.
To get the level if you fill the oil you stop filling when you see oil is draining so you wait until oil stop clean the aria then you fixed back the filling plug or bolt tight.

that is my advice sorry any mistake of my tipping.
