It is located on the transmission pan. Their is a "fluid level check screw" that you will need to take out. You aren't going to be able to just dump a quart of fluid in and be good though. These transmissions are designed under normal driving conditions to never have to be serviced and that includes the fluid. But if your like me, you like to hot rod it once in a while. Then you should change your fluid every 45,000 miles or so. The drain plug is at the very bottom of the pan. You are gonna need a little over 11.5 quarts of Mercon(R) V Transmission fluid for the 3.0 as well as the 3.9 liter. The amount of fluid needed for the transmission is the same regardless of the engine you have.
Hope this post will help someone in the future. Also their is no dipstick to check the fluid level. You have to take the screw/bolt out on the side of the Tranny Pan.

I believe that trans is of the 5R55N/S/W family, and the fluid level AND fill are both located on the bottom trans pan.There is a procedure and fill cautions as well as tools required,as per Ford Motor Co.

There is a plug on the side of the trans. Open the plug and check the oil level, it should be at the bottom edge of the hole. All the LS trans take 90 weight gear oil. DO NOT PUT AT FLUID IN THESE TRANS.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

Lincoln ls 2002 transmission fluid


The fluid can't be checked for level.The plug in the pan underneath is 2-part.The outer part drains it, and the inner plug is to fill it by squeezing the new fluid into it under pressure.Take it to a shop if replacing the fluid. don-ohio

I have a 2005 lincoln LS. and want to check my transmission fluid but i must be not ;ppking in the right spot to check it. where do i find the area to check the fluid level?


There actually is not a transmission dipstick for the Lincoln LS. The only way to access the transmission is via the fill/drain port that is on the underside of the transmission. It is essentially a small bolt within a bigger bolt. It also takes a pressurized machine to fill the transmission. Ford kinda gets you with this design, you have to take it to a dealer to get it serviced.

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2000 Lincoln LS automatic transmission? how do you check fluid levels? what type of fluid is used? Proper maintenance is the key to keeping vehicles running good...


Fluid change every 50 to 60,000 miles. There is no dipstick, you fill it thru the plug in the pan. You also check the fluid with the plug in the pan. With the engine running remove the center of the drain plug. Fluid should run from the plug when its full. Use Mercon 5 fluid.

Im not sure exactly where to pour the fluid in


what fluid are talkin about, the antifreeze coolant will go either in the radiator through the top or the reservoir depending on the cap placement, the engine oil goes through the engine oil filler cap located on the valve cover, the brake fluid goes in the master cylinder next to the fir wall of the drivers side, the transmission if its an automatic had a dipstick you pull out and use a funnel to fill it, if the transmission is standard then there are plugs on the side of the transmission to fill

WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION STICK LOCATED IN ENGINE?


There is not one. Transmission is sealed. You'll have to take it to the dealer.
Now if you want to change the transmission fluid, it's a tricky job. The fill plug is actually under the pan. (same place as drain plug) the center of that plug is where you fill the fluid. but the catch is the fluid has to be between 80F and 100F in temperature. and you add until a steady stream begins... kinda complicated and a pain in the ****.
Best of luck :)

Need to check the transmission fluid in my 2000 lincoln ls


Hello okiecouple, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

There is no "Dip Stick" on this Transmission. Instead, there is a Drain/Fill/Check Hole on the bottom back side corner of the Transmission. Below is a picture of it...

On these Lincoln Transmissions, for proper test results you need the vehicle sitting perfectly flat (in the shop, we have equipment to ensure the vehicle is perfectly level). I went ahead and made you up the Transmission Fluid Checking Procedure in .pdf format. You can download it by clicking HERE. I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesisitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader.
