95 Mustang Transmission Oil

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.

My 1997 mustang 3.8 manual transmission. The shifter recently has started to shift hard between first and second gears. I am trying to possibly narrow the trouble and hopefully afford the repair.


First, get the trans oil changed. It needs to be done every 2 years and people neglect it till transmission damage occurs. You may be lucky.

When should you get a transmission flush


I dont see why it would cause damage. Your transmission Fluid is alot like like regular oil. It needs to be replaced here and there. being that your car is an 06' It should be replace between 30,000-100,00 miles so youre probably due for one. The reason for this is, is because Over time when TF (transmission fluid) is heated up anywhere above 175 degrees it begins to oxidate and turn brown and it looses it lubricative qualities. thus putting a strain on your transmission with more heat and friction. so i'd say yeah get it done.

95 ford aerostar were do you add transmission fluid


The dipstick tube usally has a red top that says transmission. Withthe stick removed you add the fluild where the stick was. At places theat sell the trans fluild they will also sell you a transmission filler funnel. Also all the quick oil change places will check and fill the oil for you and if you ask they'll show you how it's done.
