It is on the top of the transmission. The transmission doesn't have a pan. You should be able to look down the side of the battery and see the sensor

Most of the explorers don't have a drain plug, you have to remove the oil pan to drain the fluid, messy and a pain but for some stupid reason they decided not to put a drain plug in them.

Took transmission oil pan off to change filter and there was a part in the pan and I cannot find where it came from


-a common find and nothing to worry about, it is most probably the plug for the trans fluid tube, left in (or pushed in) after manufacture of the trans

How to check & change oil in automatic transmission on 2000 VW Passat 4Motion:

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

Where is the1995 ford taurus shift solenoid located on the car?


Are you referring to a transmission shift solenoid, or the shifter lockout solenoid? The shift solenoids, that control the shifting of the transmission, are located internally in the trans, specifically in the valve body. The shifter lockout solenoid, which is the solenoid that prevents you from shifting out of park, without depressing the brake pedal, is located in the shifter assembly itself, below the center console.

The transmission solenoids are located just inside the fluid pan. Here is some info for replacing them. It is acually pretty easy.

I own a 2002 '''Ford '''Focus with automatic '''transmission. The symptoms are that the '''transmission disengages (slips out of gear) when it goes into 3rd gear. When the car slows down to 20 miles an hour or so (or when you stop) it re-engages. You can drive the car in 1st or 2nd gear generally. The '''transmission light comes on. There are no noises associated with this problem. If you have this problem then it's probably the "A" '''Solenoid that needs to be replaced. Here's how you make sure that's the case and fix it for $50.

1. You need to pull the diagnostic computer codes. '''Ford will pull them for you for $100. But, you can do it for free by going to AutoZone. They have a loaner computer diagnostic code puller. If you bring the car they'll just do it for you in the parking lot. If you want to borrow the tool then they will want a $200 security deposit. I recommend that you bring the car to them if you it's close. Also, there are lots of small shops that will pull the code for you for free. There's no reason to pay a "diagnostic fee" to pull the computer repair code. This code will tell you Exactly which '''solenoid to replace. It's typically the "A" '''solenoid, though.

2. Once you get the code you need to know which '''solenoid to replace.

3. It's fairly easy to replace the '''solenoid. You need a 5/16 socket and rachet and a tube of Gray RTV Gasket Maker (you can get it at any auto parts store).

4. You need to buy the '''solenoid. I only found it at '''Ford. For some reason when I told 3 different parts managers I wanted the "A" '''solenoid (which is how it's described in every '''Ford '''transmission diagram and on the computer code) they didn't know which one it was. There are 6
5. For the repair you need to raise the front of the car. I used ramps, but make sure it's secure. The transaxle ('''transmission) is in the front right, as you look at the car. The bottom is a pan, like an oil pan, with about 20 bolts holding it on. They're 5/16th's. There's '''transmission fluid in the pan, but no "drain bolt". So, have a pan ready to catch the fluid once the '''transmission pan comes loose. Be careful. '''Transmission fluid is hot, it will make a mess. And, the pan has a silicone gasket seal around it. So, once you get the bolts off/loose you will probably need to work the pan loose. Don't bend it. (Make sure you get all the bolts off, it's easy to miss one.) I left one bolt on the front so I could ease the pan loose from the '''transmission on the back and let the fluid run into a pan. Then I removed the pan.

6. You will see SIX '''solenoids in the '''transmission. You can't miss them. Each one has a different colored wire going to it. The A '''Solenoid has a white wire going to it, it's a small '''solenoid in the center on the right. It's held in place by one bolt (that's also 5/16ths). Unplug the wire, remove the bolt and remove the '''solenoid. Put the new '''solenoid in.

7. Carefully and completely scrape all the old gasket off the '''transmission surface the the edge of the fluid pan. Clean it. Then apply the new gasket (from the tube) onto the edge of the pan. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you just apply a thin bead of gasket compound. Don't use too much or the excess will get into your '''transmission and cause a problem.

8. Replace the pan. Let the gasket set according to the instructions on the tube - READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. And refill the '''transmission with '''transmission fluid. I was told to use the same fluid I took out, by someone I trust. You use a funnel and refill it through the '''transmission dipstick tube (front, right of the engine, yellow handle). Make sure you put it in the right place. Fill it slowly. Then run the engine and check the fluid. Add until it reads correctly on the dipstick. You check '''transmission fluid with the car running and the fluid hot.

I have a 96 trooper v6 3.2 w automatic transmission 4wd..i want to know how to drain and fill the front and rear diff axle...how about the transmission fluid is that same thing? or i have to do both..sorry...


The front and rear diffs should have drain plugs on the lowest part of the 'pumpkins'. Some vehicles don't have drain plugs tho and you have to remove the big cover to drain. There will be a plug about halfway up each diff to refill usually. The front axle should take SAE 75W-90 oil and the rear takes as follows:

Ambient temperature usually above 50°F (10°C)-SAE 140W
Ambient temperature usually below 50°F (10°C)-SAE 80W or SAE 80W/90 Ambient temperature usually between 0° and 90°F (-18° to 32°C)-SAE 90 or SAE 80W-90 These are all GL-5 hypoid oils.

The fluid for the transmission is not the same as the axles. It is DEXTRON III. Your model is a bit different as a 1996 auto trans must be checked under the vehicle for fluid level as it doesn't have a dipstick. You check the level thru the overfill screw on the transmission pan. Fluid should just seep out a bit when removing this plug.

Transmission cooler light comes on periodically. When car is allowed to sit for a few minutes light goes out and shifts normal


See 3rd dot point. It sounds like transmission fluid is getting hot and triggering the warning light. Check fluid level. Check trans cooler and cooler lines to be sure trans fluid is flowing through cooler to transmission. Transmission fluid temperature (TFT) sensor
The TFT sensor is located on the internal wiring harness to the solenoid valves in the fluid pan.
It is a resistor and measures the transmission fluid temperature.
The transmission fluid temperature is used by the PCM for the following functions:
  • Applying the torque converter clutch is not permitted until the transmission fluid reaches a certain temperature,
  • engagement of 4th gear is prevented in extreme sub-zero temperatures until the normal operating temperature is reached,
  • if the transmission fluid temperature is excessive, a pre-set fixed shift curve is selected and the torque converter lock-up clutch is closed in "2", "3" and "4"; of the transmission warning indicator is activated. No substitute signal is available for the TFT sensor.
