The transmission oil filter is in the transmission drip pan under the driver's side close to the front tire. there is no transmission filter. there is how ever a oil filter which is located on your bottom right or possibily left side of your motor. the transmission however holds trans mission fluid which can be drained!
Will the transmission fluid of the radiator be drained when you drain the fluid on the transmission?
There is a 10mm allan screw drain plug underneath the driver side. Use a 10mm allan key to loosen it. To drain the transmission fluid quicker, take out the level stick. After drained, use a long nose funnel to refill with the same grade transmission fluid. The quantity drained should be the same as the quanity refilled.
Nope, it doesn't have one. It's considered to be a "sealed" transmission, and you shouldn't need to check the dipstick. However... you SHOULD have the transmission serviced according to the maintenance schedule in the owners manual. When the transmission is serviced, the fluid is drained, the filter is replaced and the transmission is filled UP TO an overflow hole on the side of the transmission. But there is no transmission dipstick.
Make sure you get the transmission fluid kit from a hayudai dealer first. On a 95 accent I drained the fluid from the pan on the driver side by opening the nut on the left side (sitting in driver seat). After that I dropped the pan by unscrewing all the nuts on the pan. I removed the filter and replaced it. Then I removed the magnets from the pan and checked and removed all particles…
What if the trasmission fluid that was drained out of 1994 Ford Taurus was dark brown and at 20-25mph the transmission jerks do you need a new transmission?
Unless I have drained the block and radiator, I have filled the radiator from my expansion tank in every vehicle I ever had. If you have drained your radiator and it is cold, take off the cap and fill it that way. If you have drained the engine block and have not change your thermostat, you will need to keep filling your expansion tank until everything is filled back up. I recommend changing your thermostat.
