there is no correct way of monitoring a oil level without a dip stick my suggestion is go get another dip stick even if you have to buy a new one the price is less that replacing the engine
To monitor fluid level.
2002 and newer Mercury Mountaineers don't have an automatic transmission fluid level dipstick , but all Mercury Mountaineers have an engine oil level dipstick
Sounds like level just too high- check running for accurate reading since pump convertor only full when pump on. If overfull-it is critical you remove to get to right level
Correct, there is no one dipstick that will fit all vehicles. What you need is a dipstick that is the correct length. If you have lost yours, then go to your local salvage yard and find a car with the same engine. Ford Contour, Mercury Mystique, Ford Mondero, are all the same. Look for one with the same engine, either the 2.0 or 2.5. The dipstick from any of these will fit. Another alternative is to get any dipstick that will actually fit and be long enough. Drain your oil and change the filter. Add the correct amount of oil that is required for an oil & filter change. Start the engine and run for 1 minute. Shut the engine off, Wait one hour and check the level on the dip stick you are using. Mark the level of the oil on that stick, and use that as the full mark. This way you can make your own dipstick.
On a 1995 Mercury Cougar : The automatic transmission fluid level dipstick is in the engine compartment , near the firewall , towards the passenger side of the engine ( at the rear of the engine where the transmission is bolted to the engine )
On a 2001 Mercury Sable : The automatic transaxle ( transmission ) fluid level dipstick is near the firewall , in the area of the brake fluid reservoir , in the engine compartment
On a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis : The automatic transmission fluid level dipstick is in the engine compartment , near the firewall , towards the passenger side of the engine
On a 2000 Mercury Sable : The automatic transaxle ( transmission ) fluid level dipstick would be near the firewall just to the drivers side of the engine ( where the transaxle is bolted to the engine )
The type of Automatic Transmission Fluid to use is engraved into the fluid level dipstick ( or indicated on the dipstick handle ) for the automatic transaxle ( transmission )
The 2004 Mercury Mountaineer does not have an automatic transmission fluid dipstick . I know that the 2002 and newer Ford Explorer four door versions do not have a dipstick for the automatic transmission fluid level .
The 1996 Mystique has OBDII (On Board Diagnostics Level 2) and requires a command from a "code reader" or OBDII monitor. It can also be shut off by disconnecting the battery for a long enough period of time, apparently - but I have an Auto XRay unit, so I just use that. If the cause is not repaired, the CEL WILL come back on.
On my 1993 Topaz, the transmission fluid dipstick is on the right side of the engine, near the front, just to the left of the battery. It looks a lot like the oil dipstick, but, when you pull it out, the writing on the dipstick clearly mentions that the fluid level should be checked when the engine is hot and idling, and that a certain type of Mercury automatic transmission fluid should be used to refill.
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.
I believe the type used is engraved into the transmission ( transaxle ) fluid level dipstick
== == There may or may not be a dipstick. To check the fluid level you must remove a plug on the upper side of the transmission. If you can touch the lube it is full. The type lube varies by manufacture. Some use a lube and some use A/T fluid. Check your owners manual or call your local Mercury dealer.
Either the emergency brake is on or the brake fluid level is LOW in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment
you take out the dipstick, dipstick.
Auto: fill through dipstick tube Std. Plug at side of transmission - fill to this level
The maximum level should be shown on the dipstick it is the top mark nearest to the dipstick handle. the lower mark is minimum level.
On a 1996 Mercury Sable : The automatic transaxle ( transmission ) fluid level dipstick is near the firewall and the brake fluid reservoir ( looking from the FRONT of the vehicle it is to the left of the reservoir )
You can check your 1996 Cadillac Eldorado transmission fluid level with the transmission fluid dipstick. The transmission dipstick will have fluid level indicators at the bottom of the dipstick.
On a 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis : The automatic transmission fluid level dipstick should be in the engine compartment , near the firewall ( the metal wall that divides the engine compartment from the passenger compartment ) just towards the passenger side of the vehicle ( where the rear of the engine connects to the transmission )
If it is an automatic transmission, then it should have a dipstick to check the fluid level. Depending on the make and model, the location of this dipstick will vary. If it is a manual transmission, then the fluid level really can't be checked and it will not have a dipstick.
I assume the 2002 Mercury Mountaineer would be the same as a 2002 Ford Explorer ( No , starting with the 2002 model there is no automatic transmission fluid level dipstick ) Ford has a way of checking from underneath the vehicle
level of mercury fall down
