Where is the oil level supposed to be on the dipstick on a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac I want to make sure I haven't over filled my transmission


There is an opperating range on the dipstick add and xxxxxxx as long you are not below add cold .
If its hot then you have a hot mark the fluid expandes with heat so its higher on the dipstick.
So depending if its hot or cold you should be in the xxxxxx range and the fluid is red and dosn't smell burnt your OK .

Don't know where to poor my oil in my 1981 ford f100. there is not filler tube


there shouldn't be a filler tube, just a dipstick tube for checking the oil level. to put the oil in the engine, there should be a oil cap on the right hand side valve cover. if the dipstick tube isn't there, you definitely need to get one from a parts yard or store, you can be losing oil from the dipstick hole that goes to the oil pan...

1996 Ford Explorer Rear Gear Oil Fill Plug Location


Make sure to check all around the differential. Sometimes it's a rubber plug on the diff. Cover, or sometimes it is a bolt on backside (side facing front of vehicle) and it is a bolt with a square end in it that you would simply insert a ratchet without a socket into.

How to check trans oil level and condition


  • There is a 8mm or 10mm plug on the back of the transmission (underneath the car) When you pull that plug if fluid comes out then it it full. If not you add fluid until it just barely comes out that hole and then the transmission is full.
  • Now you add fluid from the top of the transmission. You have to look way down in the engine bay on top of the transmission for a red or black cap. It may say "do not open" or "open by a technician only." Take and pull that cap off and this is the fill spout for the transmission. It's a fill only, not a check. Add from this spout until it comes out that little plug on the back of the transmission.
  • You will hear people call this a "sealed" transmission of "non-serviceable." Now you can tell them rubbish lol.
  • To check the condition you can look to see if it is getting black or smells burnt. After 50,000 miles the fluid needs flushed and after 100,000 miles you need to change the filter and gasket for the transmission.

Engine: 1994 ford aerostar,


Please see the diagram at http://6jonline.com/aerostar_oil.jpg. I have included a picture of the engine with the oil fill cap and dipstick labeled. To open the cap just turn it counter clockwise like your gas cap.
