The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

SOURCE: how can i check to transmission fluid level in 2005 ford explorer

Does not have a dip stick.

Start the vehicle set park brake

In the side if the transmission oil pan a bigger bolt with a small bolt in the center.

Remove smaller center bolt trans fluid should drip out at a fairly constant rate if not its low.

Hope this tip helps.

On the bottom of the trans pan,there should be instructions.

You warm up the trans to 180 degrees or more,hold the drain plug with a 22mm wrench or 7/8",then remove the 1/8" pipe plug in the center with a torx bit.
If filled correctly fluid should just barely run out.

Capacity is around 12 quarts total.
You only get about four to four and a half, if you remove the drain plug or remove the pan to change the filter. Some extra will drain down while your doing the filter.
You need to have a special container that hold two quarts at a time, then you put an air hose to it,to pressurize,and blow the new fluid in,warm up,and any extra will drain back into your fill container.
I found on my Lincoln LS, you can fill it by removing the 3/8" tail housing plug. The other rear drive fords may be similar.

You want to get the old fluid out including your power steering every couple years or 30,000 miles.

I drained mine twice, ( 8 quarts),drove it two weeks to make sure it shifted okey,then repeated. (16 quarts total) I prefer that to a flush machine. I used to own a trans shop.

Use Mercon V and a bottle or two of Red Lubegard on final refill.
Use the power steering additive from lubegard with the correct P/S Fluid.
They are the only two chemicals I ever use on a vehicle,that I know ,not only work, but are necessary on some foreign trans.

If you look at the drain plug when it is out,you will see an extension tube. That is how the correct level is obtained with the torx plug out and fluid warmed up. You need the vehicle up on stands and level,so you can get under it.

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.

    Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny


    This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    I have a 1996 ford taurus. when i stop it does not go back into gear until i press on the gas. when it runs it runs fine


    Check the transmission fluid level.

    Do this by turning on vehicle, shift through all gears 2x, then leave in neutral.

    Pull the transmission dipstick out, clean it off, insert transmission dipstick and pull out again.

    The fluid should be in the crosshatched area.

    If it is low you will need to add ATF fluid in the dipstick hole.

    Where to put transmission fluid?


    it goes in the fil tube with a funnel. Make sure you check it with warm engine and shift through all the gears. Then shut off and wait a few minutes for drain back. Do not over fill. Use Mercon V.

    Let AAMCO try it if they will guarantee that that is the fix. Be sure to use HONDA TRANS FLUID. Of course they wont gaurantee anything, unless they sell you the whole trans.

    Car will start but wont go into any gears


    From my understanding you can move the shift lever but not move the car. Check the transmission fluid. You check it with the car on a level surface and the engine running in Park. If there is fluid on the dipstick see if it smells burned. If the fluid is not on the dipstick look under the car to see if it is covered with fluid. If you have a damaged or loose transmission pan you could lose fluid. If it is low on the dipstick add the proper type of fluid until it shows within the operating range. If the car moves then - take it to a transmission shop for an inspection.
