    Are you towing anything? this issue is caused by overheating the transmission fluid or over filled trans, it expands and then goes out the vent. Make sure the trans is checked for fluid level HOT, any other time gives you an incorrect low fluid level reading.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...


How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

I have reverse but no drive has a whinnig sound when cold 2001 ford escape v6 4wd


have you checked your transmission fluid on the dipstick under the hood? if so,then it should be full. look at the dipstick carefully to see the full level make sure if have to add fluid to the transmission that it is fomoco transmission fluid.if you have any doubt about the product,get a sales tech to show you which fluid you need for a ford transmission.there is a difference in the fluid.the whining sound you hear is from the transmission,you may have a leak.check where the vehicles parked for fluid on the ground,it will be red in color.if you do not see red fluid on the ground and the transmission is full of fluid,please repost your question with all the above information,such as full of fluid and reverse only. you may have a leak,which if fluids on the ground will tell you that much.but if it's full of fluid,then that's a different issue altogether.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com.

I have a Ford Expedition 2001. When I put the vehicle on Drive, I give it gas and it doesnt move, like I have it on neutral. I just bought a code reader and it gives me 10 codes stating solenoid. Please...


Assuming your vehicle has an automatic transmission, and if it just started doing this,your probably low on transmission fluid. if this has been going on for some time....there's a good chance the transmission has been damaged permanently. That is to say....if you have repeatedly put the car in gear and revved the engine and or driven it while it is slipping badly, it doesn't take too much of this to burn up your transmission. If the former is your case, with a warm engine in park, emergency brakes set, level ground...check your transmission fluid level on the dipstick ( it should be labeled) the checking xxxx mark at the top represents full when the fluid level is covering it. Unlike the engine oil, the xxxx represents 1 pint, not 1quart.

How do i add transmission fluid into a 1993 Ford Ranger?


Automatic Transmission?

The fluid level needs to be checked with the engine running, the vehicle on a level surface, and the transmission in park. Remove the Transmission dipstick, wipe clean, and reinsert. Immediately pull it out again and check the fluid level. If it is not where it should be fluid can be added through the dipstick tube. A half a quart can make a big difference in fluid level so start small.

It will take a while for the new fluid to clear out of the tube to get an accurate reading after you add the new fluid.

2001 Ford Windstar transmission is leaking fluid


I would have it de-greased thoroughly,make sure fluid is at correct level, then operate it for short drives at operating temperature,checking frequently for the first sign of a leak.Check the cooler lines and the vent, If it is running to hot or over full it will "blow" excess out vent.Hope this helps.
