You should only be running Harleys transmission fluid in that transmission. According to the factory actually the only acceptable substitute is Bel Ray 85-140 Hypoid Gear Oil and actually it is what I prefer to run as it is red and if ever you have a transmission leak you will know it as it is red and that will automatically ID your leak. Good luck thanks for using

I want to add automatic transmisson fluid to my 1993 mercury sable... but can't figure out where to put it?

It's time to buy an automatic transmission funnel, or get really creative!An automatic transmission funnell is about 2 feet long or more, has a regular funnel with a really long neck.
The hose and neck are small.
You put the fluid in the tube that holds the dipstick with your special funnel.
Creative means you make your own funnel with a regular funnel and some small plastic or rubber tubing.
Be blessed.

How much tranny fluid do you need to put into the transmission of a 1991 Automatic 4Runner?

These are total capacities. You need to compensate for any residual fluid you have in your system.

I will list the transmission type then the capacity to the side of the transmission type. All transmissions take regular Dexron III fluid

A43D 6.9 qts
A340E 7.6 qts.
A340H 10.9 qts.

I cant find where i check my transmission fluid

do you have an automatic transmission or a 5speed? Sounds like an obvious question, but if you have a 5speed, you don't have transmission fluid. If you do indeed have the automatic, the yellow puller is for the engine oil and the orange one is for the transmisson. Once you pull out the orange dipstick, you will fill with ATF right there using a funnel
