You shouldn't have to add fluid unless you have developed a leak, in that case there is a plug on the side of the trans, fill to the bottom of the hole, as for fluid look at the owners manual for type and weight

Transmission whines when cold and shifts on the edge


Sounds like it maybe slipping, try checking the transmission fluid level and add as necessary to full mark of near full mark, which is in the operating range, could do what I did with my windstar minivan, add in the Lucas Transmission Fix, for your Ford Taurus you'll need Mercon ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid ) unless its a manual transmission or differently specified which then will need different fluid, check the owners manual, repair manual or phone Ford and ask them for transmission fluid type. Keep in mind that the wrong fluid type in transmission and or wrong amounts ( overfilled ) or ( underfilled ) can affect the transmission's proper operation.


Also check your coolant, when coolant level is low the light will come on the dash cluster and add as needed, Fords usually use the green coolant,green colored coolant or could use the universal type coolant. Check the owners manual, look in a repair manual or ask Ford technician for the coolant type.

Need to add transmission fluid to 5 speed manual transmission on 1992 Toyota Celica


Open the hood up. You will find two different types of sticks, one near the alternator to the belts side, which is yellow or white colored and one on the battery side. It is orange colored, round small cup like dip stick, secured with a safety lock on it. Press the lock a side with your thump and take the stick out. When you push the stick inside it will sit in place firmly with a click sound.
You can add the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) here.

Bought a used 2006 Toyota Corolla a few months back. Car has been working great until I noticed what I feel is a slight transmission slip. I checked what I think is the transmission fluid and it appears...


The transmission filler is located towards the driver side front of the transmission. Look for a tube with a red " T " on top of the tube. Check the fluid with the engine running, in park, at normal operating temperature. If you need fluid, add the type of fluid printed on the dipstick. Add the fluid thru the dipstick tube. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Where will i find the transmission oil and what type to add


Transmission fluid, readily available at any parts store or Walmart, is found in the transmission pan. Look in your owner's manual's index (which should be in the glove box) to find the dipstick location. Frequently, when you pull the dipstick to check fluid level, the type of fluid to use will be etched on the dipstick at the fill line. It should also be printed in the owners manual under Recommended fluids or fliud capacity. See index under transmission or fluids. What vehicle do you have?
