Insert drain plug, tighten back up. Open hood, look for the transmission dipstick (BE SURE NOT TO USE THE OIL DIPSTICK) refer to your manual or dealer as to it's location. Obtain the proper transmission fluid for your vehicle, get a small funnel that will fit in the dipstick tub (remove the dipstick) and pour in an amount less than specified by your owners manual. Turn on engine, let run for a minute or two then take reading. If your level is low then add small amounts until the desired level is reached. DO NOT OVERFILL. If you're uncomfortable with this procedure, it's best to get assistance.

What would cause transmission to shudder first thing in the morning when you start the engine and put it in reverse on a 2004 ford explorer v8 4.6


If car has high miles, trans wear could cause this. I would try removing 1 quart of new fluid and replace with Lucas trans additive.

How do i refill the transmission fluid....


Estimate how much fluid you lost. You Refill through the tube holding the dipstick. Don't overfill that could be bad news.

Still waiting an answer to my 2005 XLT ford escape gear challenges


if you are talking about the transmission then the trans needs to be flushed a simple drain and fill is not enough the torque converter holds a lot of fluid and if it is cold where you are maybe frozen.auto trans fluid can mix with antifreeze.

Accidentally drained transmission fluid instead of oil. Bought 2008 Toyota Tacoma used and manual does not provide info on where transmission fluid is put in.


Normally the transmission fluid off pumped from the side of the engine block. You have to look from the under side of the vehicle. Good luck....

How do you put fluid in the transmission of an 05 explorer? accidently drained it instead of the oil for the engine.


The same place you drained it.There is a small torx screw in the center of the large plug that is used for filling the transmission.You will need to pump fluid into the small hole.To check the fluid the engine must be idling in park and the transmission should be 100 degrees (warm to touch)but not hot.Fluid should stream slightly from the small hole when full with trans warm and engine idling.Vehicle must be level.Good Luck!

Transmission fluid


The motor doesn't have to come out but a proper transmission drain and refill requires the VagCom diagnostic software to monitor transmission temperatures (it's supposed to be done with the fluid at a particular temperature). You'll have to flatbed the car there though - you don't want to drive the car with the transmission improperly filled. Of course, you can drain all the oil out and replace it yourself - no worries there - but don't drive the car without the transmission being filled properly.

Refilling transmission fluid - manual 5-speed.


dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.
