Purchase Dextron III by the qrart. Check automatic transmission fluid on flat ground with the engine at normal operating temp. With the engine at idle hold the brake and cycle the range selector (shifter) through all the different ranges: P, R, N, D, L2, L1, and then back to Park. This will circulate fluid to all the componets within the trans giving a more accurate reading at the dipstick of whats in the pan. Do this everytime you check the transmission fluid. With the engine at idle, and warmed up, pull the dipstick, located by the firewall, back of the engine, on the passenger side of the car. Wipe it with a clean rag and insert it back into the dipstick tube. Now look at it again. The fluid should be within the cross hatched marks on the stick. Notice it does have a mark for low fluid, but! It is measured in "PINT!", not quarts! Do not overfill the trans! This can cause air bubbles to froth the fluid and cause problems. Notice too, that most dipsticks say right on them what range you should have the car in, and at what temp.. You'll need the right size funnel to add fluid, at the dipstick tube. And add the fluid carefully, again do not overfill. When you add fluid, and then check the dipstick, you'll notice that, because you add fluid at the dipsick tube there's fluid coated on the tube, and it gets all over the dipstick empairing an accurate reading. So if that's the case wait, until all the fluid drains down into the trans before you close up shop. Your fluid in your T-bird shoud be the same color that it is in the quart bottle. Not brown or black or metallic looking. Service your transmission about every 24,000 miles, or every two years, whatever occurs first. c-ya grade a da mopar man! I believe the Thunderbirds had a big problem with the fluid overheating, and the transmission developing a bad shudder, I think a aftermarket cooler would prevent headaches in the future, ask around.
