Question about 1995 Ford Mustang
I need to change my transmission oil, but have never done this before. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I was also told to remove the plug in the torque convertor to drain more of the oil, but I don't know how to do that either.
I will assume this is an automatic, if not an automatic you never change the lubricant in a manual unless it has a tear-down for repair. Lets move on, you will need to pull the trans pan off (get the car as high in the air as possible, use jack stands always, be safe not sorry), use and old plastic garbage can lid with holes drilled in it to catch the fluid, put the lid on top of a large drain pan, slowly loosen the trans bolts, fluid will start leaking very soon after they are loose, leave a few in the front just in by a few threads, remove the back bolts and let pan drop down, this will get the most fluid out, then remove pan, clean the pan and the gasket surfaces, reinstall the pan, do not over-tighten the bolts!! it will squeeze out or damage the gasket, we don't want any leaks after all this work. When it is all buttoned up add half the recommended fluid, get trans hot by running engine for 30 minutes or so, then add more fluid, leave it a little low, a 1/2 pint or so, recheck in a few days after driving while engine and trans are still hot, then top off.
