Where do one add auto transmision oil to a jeep grand cherokee 3.7l petrol model and what type do one use


The transmission on this truck is sealer, it doesn't have a fill tube or dipstick. To add fluid requires a scanner be hooked up to monitor fluid temperature and a special fill port used under the truck to add fluid.

2008 Toyota Tacoma-automatic. Transmission fluid was drained in error thinking it was oil outlet. Where does new transmission fluid go in? Manual does not provide this specific info.


Trans fluid goes in the same tube the transmission dipstick sticks into. You'll need a funnel with a narrow bottom opening (1/2" or less). Make sure you pour it in the transmission dipstick tube, and not the engine oil dipstick tube. ;)
Initially, try to add about 3/4 of the estimated amount that you accidentally drained, then slow fill the remainder while checking level at different stages.
Also, try not to overfill. Check fluid level often, with engine running, in park or neutral, as you re-fill it.

I need to know how to change the transimission filter on a 1996 ford thunderbird v8. Or at lest where to find a diagram on how to do it


Copied from AutoZone.com:


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  3. Loosen the pan attaching bolts and drain the fluid from the transmission.

Always place used fluids and oils into a sealed storage container and take to an approved recycling collection facility. Never dump used fluids or oils on the ground or in a trash receptacle. Contamination to the environment can and will occur.
  1. When the fluid has drained to the level of the pan flange, remove the remaining pan bolts working from the rear and both sides of the pan to allow it to drop and drain slowly.

Some AOD transmissions will have a plastic plunger type plug floating loosely in the pan when draining the fluid. It is of no importance and was used in the assembly process of the transmission. Discard it before reinstallation of pan.
  1. When all of the fluid has drained, remove the pan and clean it thoroughly. discard the pan gasket. If equipped, remove the pan magnet.




0900c1528006bc40.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Unfasten the remaining bolts, then remove the transmission fluid pan from the vehicle



0900c1528006bc41.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: On some vehicles, such as this 1995, you must remove and clean the pan magnet
To install:
  1. Place a new gasket on the pan, then install the pan on the transmission. If equipped, don't forget to install the pan magnet. Tighten the pan attaching bolts as follows:

    C3 and C5 Transmissions: 12-16 ft. lbs. (16-22 Nm) A4LD Transmissions: 8-10 ft. lbs. (11-13.5 Nm) AOD Transmissions: 71-119 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm) 4R70W Transmissions: 9-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm)
  2. Add the correct type and quantity of fluid to the transmission through the filler tube.
  3. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and move the gear selector through shift pattern. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
  4. Check the transmission fluid. Add fluid, if necessary, to maintain correct level.


FILTER SERVICE


See Figure 3
  1. Remove the transmission oil pan and drain the fluid. For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
  2. Remove the screen and the filter from the valve body. Most screens are retained using a fastener; through some may use an interference fit between the screen tube and valve body.




0900c1528006bc42.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: After the pan is removed, you can remove the transmission fluid filter
To install:
  1. Install a new filter using a new gasket or O-ring.

If the transmission uses a filter equipped with a fully exposed screen, it may be cleaned and reused.
  1. Install the transmission oil pan and properly refill the transmission.

Transmission issues (I think)


Use a engine scanner to pull codes, If none it sounds like the lock-up torque converter may not be disengaging at idle. Or you have a idle air control valve or TPS going bad, then repair codes by replacing failed sensor or shift control solenoid as needed. If no codes are present your transmission could have a internal failure. It's also been know that oil transmission fluid in the system will have a higher fluid retention causing the 2nd gear solenoid to stick causing the transmission to stay in second till the line pressure rises and drops back to first with a hard shift. Keep me posted be glad to get your transmission running again

WHERE TO PUT THE TRANSMISSION OIL


you do not have a dip stick.

960e9f1.gif
Item Part Number Description 1 — Fluid fill plug (bench) 2 — Fluid level 3 — Fluid drain plug (large) 4 — Fluid level and fill plug (small) 5 — Fluid level tube

  1. NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    With the transmission in the PARK position and the engine running, use a 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  2. Allow the fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. When the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip, it is at the correct level.
  3. If no fluid comes out of the hole, fluid will need to be added. Continue with this procedure.
  4. Install the special tool into the pan.

Request information on type and quantity of fluids / oils


Hi there.A auto parts store or a dealership service department can help you determine the type of fluid recommended for your vehicle.The fill area is also the full mark,when adding fluid to the transmission or transfercase the fluid will come out of the fill hole and thats when you will know it is full.Its hard to tell how much fluid is is needed, every vehicle is different,but I believe the transfercase is between 2-3 quarts and the standard tranny is between 4-5 quarts.Keep your receipt and whatever fluids you do not use you can return.Hope this helps.John.
