Its an 11mm bolt on the right side of the transmission, just below the axle above the pan. Loosen it off, but don't remove it. Install approx 4-5 qts of tranny fluid in the top where the red cap is. It should say vent on it. Start the vehicle, go thru all gears and return to park. While running, remove the bolt. If no fluid runs out in a minute, add more fluid in the top. If it leaks out, monitor until it stops leaking. Reinstall bolt and shut off vehicle. It's at the correct level now. If you remove it with the vehicle off it will drain fluid, because the level is higher without the pump running, and when you restart it, the level will be too low.

How change transmission fluid on 96 Camry v6


Most toyotas have a drain plug screw in the transmission pan under the car. Remove the plug and drain old fluid into a waste oil bucket. It should be big enough to hold 3-4 lts. Clean and install the drain plug making sure the copper gasket is intact. Use a funnel and insert it in the transmission dipstick tube to refill. It should take aprox 3.5lt of fluid. If your fluid is really dirty you may want to start the vehicle and shift through the gears then repeat the process.

Where put transmission oil in1999 Ford falcon


Automatic transmission? If it has a transmission dipstick, you use a funnel to pour it in through the dipstick tube, with the dipstick removed. If it has NO transmission dipstick, then there's a refill plug on the side of the transmission.

Manual transmission? It has a refill plug on the side of the transmission.

BE SURE to use the CORRECT transmission fluid for your car and your transmission! If you use the wrong fluid, you'll wreck the transmission.

How to change a transmission screen on a 05' ford


The filter is not replaced unless an overhaul of the trans-axle is needed, It involves the removal of the trans-axle and partial disassembly to accomplish the filter replacement. That is only if trans failure is suspected, and diagnosis requires removal and inspection of the filter. The filter removal and replacement is procedure 42 out of 72 in the disassembly manual and 12 different Ford specific SST's (Special Service Tools) are needed. I did however, include the procedure for the normal drain and fill service performed at the dealer.
I hope this info helps!

Wher is the refill point for a Festiva 1996 manual transmission?


If you look at the transmission, you will find a drain plug on the bottom, look for a similar plug on the side of the transmission, take out plug and if oil is at the bottom of side plug hole, trans is full, if not refill here until oil is running out of hole, reinstall plug.

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
