first of all the LS does not have a dipstick. to check the fluid level is not easy. if you want to spend the afternoon at it you can do it. the car has to be warmed up and lifted up so you can get under the car. it has a tube where the drain plug is at the level at the fluid should be. what i have done is make a tool out of a clothes hanger wire bend it into a J shape so you can push it in the drain hole and around the side to use as a dipstick . many people add a quart start and run the car untill warm shut off and pull the plug and let drain the excess install plug and now its at the correct level. DO NOT OVER FILL THIS TRANS WILL TURN TO JUNK IF OVER FILLED THIS IS WHY THERE IS NO DIPSTICK. just remember this is a jaguar trans not ford.
There is no dipstick on your tranmission. There is a fill plug that
needs to be removed to check the level once the trans fluid temp reaches
30-40 degrees C. When the fluid is full it will drip out of that fill
plug. The fill plug is the 8mm hex on the passenger rear of the trans
Apparently, there is no dip stick on Jag S-type. It sounds like there may be a "level" plug in the drain plug underneath, and a fill plug in the side of the transmission. Some additional clues at: http://forum.roadfly.com/threads/11484525
It sounds like it could be a little complicated. You may want to call a dealer or shop for a quote to check the level?
there is a drain plug, take it out, let fluid drain out until it stops. put drain plug back in. find dipstick, take dipstick out, fill trans approx 3 qts. check level with engine off. use only HONDA trans fluid. If you cant do this, take it to a shop. You may need to bring your own trans fluid as most shops will not keep it in stock. should not cost much more than a engine oil change.
There is no dipstick. There is a drain check plug in the transmission pan. You have to remove the center check plug with the car level and running and add fluid to the fill plug at the rear of the transmission till it drips from the check plug. This is difficult and dangerous to do at home( crawling under a hot running vehicle) It is a really dumbsetup that some automakers started usaing.
Hi, to check the fluid, first raise the car and level. On the rear of the trans next to the driveshaft there is a hex plug (5/16" allen head). Remove the plug when the transmission is warm and running in park. Fill the trans with Mercon V until it runs out, then re-install the plug. On my 2002 s type it has the instructions imprinted in the rear of the trans next to the fill port.
it is like a lincoln LS. same trans. here is procedure. please don't forget to rate. thanks
Fluid Fill Reference
NOTE: The left side of case is shown. The fill plug is on the right side of the extension housing.
Fluid fill plug (bench)
Fluid drain plug (large)
Fluid level and fill plug (small)
Fluid level tube Check
Place a drain pan under the transmission.
NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug. With the transmission in the PARK position and the engine running, use a 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug.
Allow the fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. When the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip, it is at the correct level.
If no fluid comes out of the hole, fluid will need to be added. Continue with this procedure.
Install the special tool into the pan.
Using the special tool, extract approximately one pint of clean automatic transmission fluid from a suitable container.
Using the special tools, fill the transmission with clean automatic transmission fluid.
Remove the special tool.
Allow fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. when fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at correct level. If no fluid drains from the plug, continue adding clean automatic transmission fluid in 1/2-pint increments until fluid starts to drain from the plug.
On a 2000 s-type 4.0 There is a combination drain plus check valve on the bottom of the Pan and a fill hole on the back right side. Use WD-40 to help free up the allen-screw in the middle of the drain plug. Hold the drain screw while opening the level checking screw. If it is full, a small amount may run out. If light red fluid runs out it's OK. If brown, You got a problem. It uses special fluid! Take it to have it done in a Jaguar service facility. Or educate yourself on how to do it.
