Refill the lost fluid and then clear the light and see what happens. Low fluid will set a light (and about 15 other things).

2004 freestar transaxle light flashing after driving for around five minutes. Took to autozone they didn't get any codes. The PVC hose elbow was compressed and cracked with some oil residue in it.


if auto zone used a simple scanner possible wouldnt pick upon a manufacturer code --trans axle warning light can be from a fluid problem to a bad sensor need to check level and or fluid condition--as to pressure in tank your fuel tank is under pressure that was normal release when you opened the cap

Transmission oil coming out the funnel


If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.

Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

FORD: 2000-2007 Taurus
2000-2003 Windstar
2004-2007 Freestar MERCURY: 2000-2005 Sable
2004-2007 Monterey
This article supersedes TSB 05-14-5 to update the Service Procedure and vehicle model years. ISSUE: Some 2000-2007 Taurus, 2000-2005 Sable, 2000-2003 Windstar, and 2004-2007 Freestar/Monterey vehicles, equipped with a 4F50N, AX4N, or AX4S transaxle, may exhibit an erratic fluid level reading on the transaxle dipstick and possible leaks around the filler tube and grommet. The condition may be due to a restricted transaxle vent.
ACTION: Repair the transaxle vent restriction by replacing the transaxle vent with a 90° vent stem, small hose clamp, two (2) tie raps, and 24" (61 cm) of 5/16" (8 mm) vacuum hose. The 5/16" (8 mm) vacuum hose will be routed from the 90° vent on the transaxle back to the cowl area, next to the brake master cylinder and tie rapped in place with the end of the hose facing down. Refer to the following Service Procedures.
NOTE: ON WINDSTAR, FREESTAR AND MONTEREY SEAL THE COWL PANEL GRILLE (COWL TOP VENT PANEL) AREA, SEE TSB 06-14-10. NOTE: LEAKS MAY BE MISDIAGNOSED AS COMING FROM THE PAN GASKET. ALWAYS FOLLOW WORKSHOP MANUAL, SECTION 307-01 TO LOCATE THE SOURCE OF A LEAK, AND LEAK CHECK WITH BLACK LIGHT AND DYE. SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Disconnect the mass air flow (MAF) sensor electrical connector.
  2. Disconnect the crankcase vent tube(s) from the air cleaner outlet pipe.
  3. Loosen the clamp and disconnect the air cleaner outlet pipe from the throttle body.
  4. Release the air cleaner housing clamp(s).
  5. Separate the air cleaner cover from the air cleaner tray.
  6. Windstar, Freestar and Monterey only: Remove cowl panel grille by following the procedure in TSB 06-14-10.
  7. Disconnect the shift cable if located over the top of the vent.
  8. Remove the vent, pull straight up on the vent with locking pliers, or carefully pry the vent from the transaxle case.
  9. Install the replacement 90° vent stem.
    • Windstar, Freestar, Monterey, Taurus, and Sable with column shifter - Must face to the right rear of the vehicle with the flat edge of vent base parallel to the chain cover boss (Figure 1)
    • Taurus and Sable with floor shifter - Must face to the rear of the vehicle with the flat edge of vent base parallel to the chain cover boss (Figure 2)

  10. Install one end of a 24" (61 cm) long piece of 5/16" (8 mm) vacuum hose to the 90° vent stem and secure with a small hose clamp.
  11. Route the vacuum hose back and up to the cowl area and down next to the brake master cylinder. Carefully tie rap the hose in place next to the brake master cylinder (do not tie rap to brake lines), be sure the end of the hose is facing down and not directly above anything hot.

Check automatic transmission fluid level 2004 Pontiac grand am


TRANSAXLE FLUID CHECKING PROCEDURE



The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.

Inspect
The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near Room temperature or at 40°C (104°F) .

CAUTION: Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe.

The engine must be running when the transaxle fluid level screw is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fluid level screw. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid.

WARNING: Do not turn the engine off with the fluid level screw removed as you can be injured by hot transaxle fluid being expelled out of the fluid check hole.

  1. Let vehicle idle for three to five minutes with accessories off.
  2. Apply brake
  3. Move shift lever through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range.
  4. Place shift lever in Park.
Important: Vehicle must be kept level on the hoist.

  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  2. Place oil container under fluid level screw.
  3. Remove the fluid level screw with the engine running at idle.
  4. Fluid level should be at the bottom of the fluid check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the fluid check hole when the fluid level screw is removed. If fluid drains through the fluid check hole, this transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, the fluid level is correct and the fluid level screw may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the fluid check hole, the transaxle fluid level may be low. Proceed to ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID.
  5. Install fluid level screw.
Tighten 12 Nm (106 lb. in.)

  1. Lower vehicle.
  2. Shut off engine.
Adding Transaxle Fluid:

With the engine running, add fluid at the vent cap location in half liter (1 pint) increments until fluid drains through the fluid check hole. Allow the fluid to finish draining through the fluid check hole.

  1. Install fluid level screw.
Tighten 12 Nm (106 lb. in.)

  1. Lower vehicle.

I have a light that has come on one my van its flashing it looks like a question mark with a circle around it. 2004 ford freestar SE van


Could it be an exclamation (!) in a circle? If it is, that is the warning light for your brake system. Check the fluid level at the master cylinder, add if needed, and check for brake fluid leakage under the car. Be careful, as you may lose your brakes if the fluid level drops too low. If this is NOT the symbol you see, let me know, I'll try to find another explanation for it. If it is a ? inside a cutaway of a tire, (kind of a 'U' shape with a question mark in it) it is your tire pressure monitoring system warning of low tire pressure in one or more tires.
