Should be a plug at the side of the transmission- fill to this level
No check , Just drain and add 2.83 qt. ATF in the speedo hole !
On a 1997 Mercury Tracer : The AUTOMATIC transmission fluid dipstick would be on the side of the transmission ( transaxle ) in the area of the brake fluid reservoir . The manual transmission ( transaxle ) does not have a dipstick
According to the 1997 Mercury Tracer Owner Guide : For the automatic and manual transaxle ( transmission ) ( Motorcraft MERCON Multi Purpose automatic transmission fluid )
On the 93 escort, brother to Tracer, there was only a breather valve at the top of the transmission and fluid needed to be added by removing an access bolt OR it had a small yellow dipstick at the top of the transmission.
Down the tube that holds trans dipstick.
I believe it's dextron/mercron II
I have a 89 tracer with a 5 speed manual transmission. When I had the transmission oil changed they removed the speedometer cable from the transmission and filled it through the odometer drive mounting hole. I laughed at the mechanic but he said that was the only way to do it. If there is no other hole to check the oil I guess you may have to pull the odometer cable to check it!!! Hope this helps you out. RG
I have a '93 ford escort 1.9, I always use mercron automatic transmission fluid. Use Mercon but do not use Mercon V.
Auto: fill through dipstick tube Std. Plug at side of transmission - fill to this level
The fluid should be at the top of the cross hash marks.
You can check the transmission fluid, there is a little window on the side of the transmission on the drivers side that shows the fluid level and you can also add transmission fluid on that same side. There is no dipstick to check the level.
transmission filters are generally located just inside the transmission oil pan, have to remove pan and drain fluid to change filter.
The fluid level is checked by loosening an Allen head bolt in the transmission pan. If the fluid starts to leak out, it is full. If not, it needs transmission fluid.
A 2000 Mercury Sable might have a vibration at low speeds after changing the transmission fluid because of a lack of fluid or leaking fluid. Check the transmission case for leakage and check the fluid level before driving again.
Well if you're doing your standard fluid/filter change, just measure how much you removed, and replace that much.
Yes... where the dipstick is. You take a funnel and add enough fluid to fill it up to the proper level. Do this while the engine is running and the transmission is in Park.
Your transmission may need transmission fluid, or you may have a blown transmission.
YOU NEED TO GET THE CAR TO OPERATING TEMPERATURE AND THEN PULL YOUR DIPSTICK OUT WHICH IS ON YOU DRIVERSIDE AND IT IS USUALY BLACK OR RED WIPE THE EXCESS OFF AND PUT IT BACK IN AND PULL IT OUT IF IT IS IN THE CROSS HATCHES THEN YOUR OK IF NOT THEN YOU NEED TO ADD FLUID
In the 1997 Mercury Villager, the Transmission fluid dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine just in front of and below the master cylinder/brake fluid check. The 97 Villager has a bulbous knob on top with no indication that it is the Transmission fluid.
You have to take it to the dealer there is no way for you to check it You can check the transmission fluid, there is a little window on the side of the transmission on the drivers side that shows the fluid level and you can also add transmission fluid on that same side. They just tell you to take it to a dealer so they can make more money!
check your owners manual?
