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.
transmission fluid is checked with the car cooled off -never when running-(daddmac)
in some cases but not usually
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.
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.)
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
Check your transmission fluid.
check it while its on and in park
The engine/transmission needs servicing/repair.
A battery is used to start a car. Once it is running, the alternator then supplies electrical energy to charge the battery as well as power the electrical systems in the car. Removing the battery while the car is running will not affect the running of the car.
My transmission was low on fluid. My gears would slip, I'd be driving and then I'd push on the gas and I wouldn't go any direction. I was checking my transmission fluid while the car was off and it said there was enough fluid in it. I started checking my fluid while it was running and found out I was out of transmission fluid. Once I put fluid in it, my problem went away and has been running good since.
If your car has a automatic transmission, put car in neutral get a rolling start then switch to Drive. If car stays running your problem could be a solinoid switch in transmission. The trans. is stuck in second or third gear which would cause your car to stall out.
My probe will not shift to any gear while running but will when turned off. Before taking it to a mechanic I would like a general idea if this is a clutch or transmission problem.
automatic....engine warm and running while in park, standard, engine off. But this is covered in your owner's manual
Yes, Brakes can be used in Auto transmission car when the Engine is off.
The car might have an automatic cut off to either disengage the transmission or cut off the engine. Otherwise you will rip apart the transmission.
Unhook ur positive terminal on battery while car is running if car turns off while doing this u got a bad alternator
No fluid bad clutches in the transmission bad or broken linkage no driveline motor not running
First off can you feel it shift through all the gears while off (not running). Second off while running can you shift through the gears or does it grind while trying to shift through them. If it grinds when you try to shift then your clutch is shot. Good luck
Because there's something wrong with it. For a more detailed answer, take it to a mechanic.
It varies from one car to another. Some recommend checking it with the engine off, some with the engine running in park, some with the engine running in neutral, etc. The owners manual for the vehicle will tell you how it should be done on yours.
