There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly on top of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission. With the car running (Warning: The car must remain running while plug is out!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. Don't shut the car off while it is running or else fluid will pour out.
in some cases but not usually
transmission fluid is checked with the car cooled off -never when running-(daddmac)
the transmission check point is under the car on the drivers side of the transmission. you need a 16mm spanner and you need to check it when the transmission is hot. and the car running. if you check the transmission when the car is at operating temp with the car switched off, the level will be down. the car must be in the park position.
If your 1997 Mercury Tracer has a battery light that blinks on and off while the car is running, it most likely means that the battery is not charging. This could be an issue with your alternator.
Check your transmission fluid.
check it while its on and in park
You may get splashed with hot oil and get burned if you add oil with the car running, why don't you just turn the car off and add it??
if your car has air con on it while the engine is running it will be the aircon pump switching on and off hope this helps you out nate
Okay, You know where the transmission fluid dipstick is? You get a funnel, and pour the transmission fluid right into the little tube you pulled the dipstick out of. Be sure to have the car running when you check the transmission fluid level; if the car is turned off you will get false readings. (Remember though that the oil can only be accurately checked when the car is not running.)
