If your engine is the 3800, the transmission dipstick is located on the driver's side no more than 10" from the front of the Brake Fluid Tank. The top of the dipstick is yellow or orange in color and it is labeled TRANS. FLUID.

How do i find transmission dipstick for 2003 ford explorer

It does not have a traditional dipstick and tube. Ford changed over to using a plug in the side of the transmission like manual transmissions use.
There are some DIY videos on YouTube.

I cant find where to put transmission fluid in my car

If it's a manual transmission you don't have a dipstick because you have a clutch not a converter. Automatic transmissions have dipsticks. And if it is an automatic..the fluid can go into the tube where the dipstick is.

Cant find my dipstick in a sunfire the transmission fluid

The dipstick sits to the right of the brake reservoir, viewed from the drivers seat. The handle should be red and the full level is in the hatched portion of the dipstick. You fill it through the dipstick tube.

Where do i pour transmission fluid

Always check the transmission fluid with the engine hot (after driving) and while the car is idling and in park.

Pour the transmission fluid, using a funnel, into the tube where the transmission dipstick is. The dipstick handle is usually the RED one.

Do not overfill the transmission fluid, as this could cause it to come out into the engine compartment thru the filler/dipstick tube when it becomes hot and potentially catch on fire.

Good luck

While changing transmission fluid i found an yellow half ball with an stem on it and cant find were it came from,2004 f150

The plug you found is a stop plug that is installed in the dipstick tube hole when the transmission is built. After the transmission is put in the truck, that plug is pushed out into the pan when the dipstick tube is installed.

No worries, you can throw that out. Most people never hear about that because they don't change their own fluids.

Transmission fluid

I assume u found the dipstick to check the fluid level? Use a funnel to add fluid at the dipstick tube, slowly, while engine is running. Shift thru the gears several times, recheck level, don't overfill.
