SOURCE: Refilling transmission fluid - manual 5-speed.

dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

SOURCE: check engine light on

If you disconnect your battery for 15 minutes it should clear a dummy light. However if it does not it you may have a bad sensor.

SOURCE: how to add or check transmission oil

this t-bird has a 5r55s trans. it does not have a dipstick.
it has a "standpipe" type leveling system.
to check fluid level the tranmission has to be within 80-120 degree f.
take the plug out of the center of the fitting located on the bottom of the trans pan. it is a torx 30.
running in park the fluid should drip slower than a coffee pot.
to add you need a npt thread fitting the same as the little plug you removed. and attach a bottle of mercon5 and hose to it. squeeze the bottle to add fluid
then recheck it by letting it drain out to a fast dribble. then install the little plug back in.ead6e26.gif remember 80-120 degree fluid temp.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

Check level and condition of your transmission fluid. If your transmission fluid is turning brown or if your vehicle has not had a transmission fluid and filter change in 5 years or 50,000 miles, do that right away before you fry your transmission.

MI have a 2000 ford mustang and need to check or fill the transmission fluid where do I find this? It is a manual transmission.


naughtyon904, Most manual transmissions have a drain plug (on the botttom) and a fill plug (on the side ) of the transmissions. You need to raise the vehicle with ramps and visually check the transmission. Find the fill plug and remove it. With your finger check the level of the oil. It should be at the top of the fill hole. Also, check with your local dealer to find out exactly what is in the transmission as it is usually gear oil and not transmission fluid that is used. They can tell you the exact weight of the oil to be used and if there are any additives. Good luck with this.

Want to learn how to check transmission fluid on my ford mustang 1994


At the rear of the engine locate the dip stick going into the transmission case, it look like an oil dip stick. Pull it out and wipe clean. Re-insert pull out and read the fluid level at the bottom of the dip stick. Do this with engine off and on a level surface.

Check your engine mounts and transmission mounts and make sure that they are good and strong, if not then you will need to replace them.

1998 2D Coupe(Automatic) O/D blinks, catch when gears change


When was the last time the Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? More than 35,000 miles = Fluid and Filter change.
Is there any leaks what so ever? This will affect shifting.
Have the Transmission Sensors been removed, cleaned/inspected and reinstalled? These Sensors are "magnets" and catch little metal particles that inhibit their functions, including shifting.
What is the condition and level of the Transmission Fluid. Make sure you smell the Fluid. If it smells burnt, then change it immediately. Make sure you check the level when the engine is at normal temperature and while the engine is running, with the gear in Park or Neutral (with the Parking Brake ON!).
Does this Transmission have a Solenoid (electronic shifting)? If so have you checked the electronic connections for corrosion or oxidation?
Don't spend $2,000 (or more) dollars when the rest of these combined cost less than $200 dollars!
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

TRANSMISSION


If it is a manual gearbox, use transmission fluid. If it is an automatic gearbox, use Automatic Transmission Fluid. The compliance plate (usually found in the engine bay) will tell you exactly what type to use. But the best way is to just have a look at the bottles in the retailers, and check the specifications written on the bottle to make sure that it is OK for your model. If you have a Ford dealer close by to where you live, ask them for the right fluid, and you can't go wrong then.
