SOURCE: were do i put transmission fluid in the tranny 1997 cadi catera

Your Catera has a sealed for life transmission so therefore on one of these models there is no dipstick and you cannot check the fluid level yourself. The dealer can check the level but that is only necessary if you have a leak. Use a premium grade oil and a quality filter such as AC/Delco, Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. The correct weight oil is listed in your owner's manual and possibly on the oil fill cap or dipstick.

SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer leaking tranny fluid and code p0171

Well you have two different problems.
The code 171 is for a problem with the fuel system being too lean on bank one. Bank one is the side with cylinder one.
The O2 sensor is telling the computer the fuel mixture is too lean and the computer can not correct it. Could be a faulty sensor or something wrong with the injectors.
This has nothing to do with a trans fluid leak.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped

Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

No dipstick to put transmission fluid into

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

1997 Dodge Cummings Deisel 1 ton.

It should take a dextron 3 tranny fluid. But refer to the owners manual to make sure. Also, your tranny dipstick is, is where you will add fluid. Look at the bottom of the dipstick. Sometimes the fluid type is labeled there also..

I'm a new owner of a 2003 Heritage softail

You will need either the HD oil filter wrench (HD-44067), which fits over the end of oil filter Harley-Davidson SuperPremium5 Oil Filter 63731-99A and allows you to remove filter with a ratchet and extension, or a strap type oil filter wrench purchased at an autoparts store. I use the strap type generic wrench. The HD wrench, actually a hex cap to fit over end of filter, would be a worthwhile investment. There is very very limited side access to filter on bike neccesitating one of these tools. Pan drain plug on same side, to front of pan at corner. Drain oil, remove filter, wipe off filter mount, fill new filter with fresh oil and install, pour in 5 quarts total using a flexible neck funnel, and your done. It takes 5 quarts total including what you use to fill new filter. SAE 20W50 or SAE 60 grade is appropriate for ambient temperatures above 80 deg to over 100 deg F. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH "O" RING !!!!!

This one is tricky get yourself a service manual. "O" rings are a pain man! train plug should be line up with dip stick.
