Where is the drain plug on a 1996 ford aerostar automatic transmission?

Call your local Ford dealer.
I think you will learn there is no drain plug.
Most transmissions are drained by loosening the screws holding the pan to the transmission case, which means the fluid will come out all the way around the pan, necessitating you have a very large pan to collect the fluid in.
God bless your efforts.

1995 ford aspire trans axle fluid level

you should see a plug that looks different from the oil drain plug on the transmission pan, or near the bottom, on the side of the transmission.
remove, drain. You refill through the dipstick tube for trans fluid.
If it's a manual trans, there will be another plug higher up on the trans.
this one will be the fill plug.
Also on the manual trans, some people just remove the shifter and add fluid in the large hole up top.
Youtube and google will be your friend here.

Found a plunger looking thing in the trans pan. Where does it go?

It was installed at the factory during assembly and is not required.the part is used in the factory when the initial transmission fluid is put into the transmission to keep out dirt. After the initial fluid fill, the part is useless.

Just pulled the trans pan and found a plastic plunger laying in the bottom. It has a stem and a rounded head woth an o-ring. Where does it go to?

This is kind of a filter that is put there during the assembly process. It supposed to attract some debris. It can be removed when you do your fluid, filter change. It only there from the manufacturing company.

I have a 99 F 150 5.4L automatic. I was changeomg the tranny filter and In the bottom of my pan was a round plunger thing with a 2 inch stem with little o ring gasket where it go

You can just throw it away. It was a plug that was used when the transmission was first filled on the assembly line. It is left in the pan because it does no harm and is too much trouble to remove.

How to refill brake fluid in 1995 hyundai elantra?


Manual trans: remove the filler plug (high up on the drivers side of the car... looking at it from underneath) stick a thin hose attached to a fluid pump into the trans until it touches the bottom then **** the old fluid out. then fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole with the correct oil (75W-80W gear oil), replace the filler plug.
Automatic trans: remove the drain plug on the pan, drain into a container, remove pan, clean or replace filter/screen, replace pan, fill with correct oil (not common Dexron II or III -- Hyundai ATF SP-II or Chrsyler spec 7176).

Need to know placement of transmission pan, automatic, filter in or out?

Trans pan is going to be the very lowest part of your transmission. The filter swap is just slightly concerning. Not to be rude, but you might want to have an assistant that is familiar with trans basics to walk you thru the first one if locating the pan was difficult.
If you feel that the filter swap is something you would like to do, start out by getting the filter kit and reviewing the included instructions. If they are not able to give a full and detailed explanation, they sometimes include a number to call. Dont bother. Just come back here and ask!
Automatic transmissions do not come with a drain plug. You will need to loosen all the small bolts around the edge except for one, to keep the entire pan from crashing to the ground and splashing oil everywhere. pull the edge down and into the drain pan goes the trans fluid. The filter is right under the pan. Cant miss it.

It is real important to be as clean as possible. No contaminants in the trans. If you can, pressure wash the area first and stay operating room clean!
Good Luck to ya
