SOURCE: removing filler plug from transfer case

On an 02 Santa Fe the Transfer Case Filler plug requites a 10mm allen wrench. A socket type works best.

How to check transmission fluid 2011 ford fiesta


The Ford fiesta auto transmission is actually a newer, more efficient transmission design, called a Dual Clutch Transmission. It is actually an automated manual transmission that gets more miles per gallon out of your gas. It does have some noise during shifting, which are the little electric motors that push in and out the "mini" clutches in the gearbox. It is actually kind of cool - even if some don't like the difference in driving characteristics of this transmission.

Anyway, if you need transmission fluid - that would be a bad sign, maybe a leaking shaft seal. If you need to replace it, make sure you replace it with Motorcraft Dual Clutch Transmission Fluid XT-11-QDC. You normally have to get this through Ford. Sorry. Isn't cheap!! It is a special type of transmission fluid, kind of amber in color (if you have someone sell you something that is red, IT IS THE WRONG FLUID!)

Start with the vehicle in NEUTRAL, positioned on a hoist (you want the car as level as possible for the most accurate reading). You can also do this by lifting the vehicle on 4 jacks to keep it level, and high enough to take off the driver-side front wheel (makes this SO much easier).

Take off the driver side wheel. Locate the plug on the side of the transmission (see image).

CLEAN the are around the plug - you don't want dirt in that transmission!

Remove the fill plug using the correct sized Allen wrench. Righty tighty, Lefty loosely.

Using a oil suction gun/ Syringe Pump, fill the transmission (actually, the trans-axle) to the correct level. Add transmission fluid until the oil runs out of the fill hole. The trans-axle is full when the oil flow from the fill port has slowed to a broken stream or dripping. Do NOT overfill the trans-axle, this causes the fluid to be forced out of the case, which can damage your seals - not a good things, so make sure the car is level, and make sure you let the excess fluid drain out.

The picture below shows you what you are trying to achieve. Note that the green is the fluid (which is actually amber in color).

check-transmission-fluid-2011-ford-met2snchz4ptyett15khuqag-1-2.jpg

Re-install the fill plug. Tighten to 43 Nm (32 lb-ft). (You will need to use a ball head hex socket so that you can put on a torque wench).

That's it!

Hope this helps!

The transmission case has a lower drain plug and an upper fill plug on the side of the transmission case. You need a special 17mm Allen wrench to remove the drain and fill plugs on the ******.Open the upper fill plug and add the specified GM ****** fluid till it dribbles out the fill plug hole.

Where is the transmission fill plug on a 94 gmc sonoma with manual trans


It's been a while since I have run into one of those but I do remember you need a 17mm Allen socket or wrench to remove the fill plug. The fill plug is about half way up the side. I don't remember if it's the driver or passenger side. If you find a plug with a 17mm opening your on the right track. Here's a trick if you don't have an Allen that big. Most bulk 10mm bolts have a 17mm head. Double nut a 10mm bolt and use that to remove the fill plug. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How do you check the transfer case fluid level


  • Locate the fill plug in the center of the transfer case facing the rear. The fill plug is a hex head bolt.

  • Remove the fill plug and check the fluid level. Insert the short end of an L-shaped Allen wrench into the hole. Spin the Allen wrench slightly and remove it. Some fluid should be present on the tip if the unit is full.

  • Attach a screw-on hand pump to a bottle of Mopar ATF+4 type 9602 automatic transmission fluid. Insert the other end of the tubing for the hand pump into the fill plug hole on the transfer case.

  • Pump fluid into the transfer case until the fluid is flush with the bottom of the hole. A small bead of fluid will drip out of the hole when the case is full.

  • Reinstall the fill plug and torque it to between 15 and 25 foot-pounds of torque. Hand-tightening the plug and turning it 1/2-half turn further with a socket wrench is equivalent to 20 foot-pounds of torque if you do not have a torque wrench available.

    Is it true that there is no dipstick?


    No such thing as "dipstick" on the Freelander.
    Filler plug is located on top of the transmission next to two electrical connectors.
    Level plug is located on the bottom of the transmission, next to the selector cable.
    Use 5mm allen wrench to remove it, and fill the transmission fluid till it starts dripping from the level plug.
    BE CAREFUL WHEN LOCATING LEVEL PLUG, WILL DAMAGE THE TRANSMISSION IF REMOVE THE "WRONG" BOLT.

    Add transmission fluid


    On 91 vehicles there's a 17mm allen screw on the side towards the left front wheel. Open it add the oil there on a level surface and fill till oil reaches the hole and starts coming out. DO NOT FILL OIL FROM THE TOP where what seems to be a plug. It's actually the timing marks and houses the clutch. Put oil there and you'll need a new clutch.
