Re: how do i check the transmition oil an a automatic
On the right side of the engine compartment you should find a red plastic dipstick remove it from tube and check fluid mark do this on level ground and engine idling in park. fluid has to be between the add and full marks at bottom of stick use dexron 3 automatic transmission fluid the fluid is added into the tube the stick came out of.

I would check the oil level first ,,, if it is ok ..check the oil it self should be light red in color if not then u need to change the oil and the filter ...if that did not solve the issue then u have a bigger problem ..let me know
the coils act as the gasket but the valve covers can leak oil into the chamber for the sparkplugs and give driveability problems. there are gaskets for the valve covers that can correct this if you have oil in there. yes thye sparkplugs are in those recesses
Revised your question with "How to refill automatic transmission for 04 Lincoln LS" member has a solution for you.Your car according to the member does not have an oil dip stick to check but has pointed out how to check and refill the fluid on this particular model.
most vehicles might be on side of drivers door or has around the front of the radiator or under the hood a sticker that well display oil filter type how much oil what type etc.now look in your owners manual or go on line look up make model of your vehicle oil specifications it should give all the info you need very important the wright oil filter pcv valve all v-8 are 5 quarts.6cyl can be 4 to 5 quarts.if engine is not using oil running normal than do this drain old oil replace pcv valve replace oil filter pour in 4 quarts turn engine on wait about three min turn engine off wait let oil drain back down to oil pan check oil if dip stick reads normal or maybe one third low add one third and save your fifth can.incase you need to add later.every three months oil change is recommended in any vehicle every six months check transmision fluid,every six months check differential fluid especially if you own a 4 wheel drive. that is your front and rear axles.all ways remember oil filter itself well hold about one third to a quart of oil depends on the size of the oil filter.thats why your dip stick my read a little low after checking when your oil change is done.
The best oil is the Synthetic type oil that one can get through Walmart or an auto parts store. However, if the car hasn't been using synthetic type, it's a good idea to creep up on it using a mixture of synthetic and regular oil.
However, I have a couple of Cadillac Devilles that use regular oil and I've never had any problems with it.
I wouldn't use synthetic unless there is a sticker that specifically says to use it under the hood.
Most American cars don't need synthetic.
Some Porsches, BMW's, Mercedes Benz and higher end performance cars recommend synthetic for use all of the time. Good luck on choosing the best grade of oil for your Lincoln LS.
Fluid change every 50 to 60,000 miles. There is no dipstick, you fill it thru the plug in the pan. You also check the fluid with the plug in the pan. With the engine running remove the center of the drain plug. Fluid should run from the plug when its full. Use Mercon 5 fluid.
