you must drop the transmission pan and the filter is inside directly above the pan.
Drop the transmission pan, the filter will be the 1st thing you see.
Remove the tranny pan
If the transmission is hesitating on a Saturn Vue, the transmission filter may need to be changed. The fluid should also be changed at the same time as the filter.
The capacity with a filter change is 4.1 Qts.
I was looking at one of the Ford websites and it shows for the automatic transaxle ( transmission ) used with the 1.9 litre four cylinder engine in a 1991 Ford Escort : ( yes , Motorcraft FT-123 filter inside the transaxle pan )
The transmission filter is on the bottom of the transmission case. It can be seen once the lower tranny pan has been removed. Actually its not a filter, its just a screen thaat keeps the bigger hunks of debris from reentering the t ransmission pump.
Actually the filter on an automatic transmission is just a screen to keep the big chunks of metal from being sucked up into the pump. Most people replace them because they come with the kit of a seal and filter.
You can remove the transmission pan or pump it out. If you want to also change the filter, which you should, then remove the pan.
A plugged transmission filter can cause your transmission to hesitate when you shift into drive. A collapsed vacuum hose can also cause the problem.
The filter is inside the transaxle, and can be accessed by removing the bottom pan. It is recommended that you adjust the kickdown band and low-reverse band when servicing the transaxle. The car should be driven 15 minutes to warm up before draining the transmission fluid.
Shouldn't have made any difference. Check that there is enough fluid in the transmission. Check it idling in park.
