You can find the dipstick for the Transmission Fluid of an automatic transmission on the passenger side of the engine block (this is where the automatic transmission is mounted). It is way down in there and somewhat difficult to see - a flashlight will be helpful in locating it. You need to be careful when checking it because it is easy to burn your arm on the radiator hose as you reach down in there to grab the dipstick. As for the engine revving, depends if it is an automatic or manual transmission. If it isn't the clutch or the transmission, it could be a faulty throttle position sensor, bad oxygen sensor, bad fast idle thermovalve, or many other things.

Have a 1994 Ford ranger every 2 weeks add 34quart of fluid to tranny never have any fluid leakes on driveway where could the fluild be going some oil on bottom of tranny not a lot though?

Check to see if your transmission has a vacuum modulator. If it does, it could be leaking and fluid could be getting sucked into the engine. If it's a slow leak, the engine would burn that much fluid without too much trouble. See if there is a vacuum line between the transmission and engine. If so, disconnect it and see if there is fluid in it. If it has fluid, there is a vacuum leak in the transmission and you'll need to get it fixed.

How do you check the transmission fluid level on a manual transmission in a ford ZX2?

Remove the engine speed sensor which is located directly behind the engine on the clutch bellhousing side of the transaxle case below and to the left of the brake master cyinder. It sticks straight up and has a bolt on the side holding it down. Remove the electric connector attached to it and if there is a speedometer cable remove that also. Unscrew the retaining bolt at the base of the sensor and wiggle it out. The fluild level should reach the top of the gear on the sensor when inserted. This is also where you add fluid to the transaxle/transmission(use a funnel with a long stem). Note although this is a manual transmission it requires MERCON ATF(automatic transmission) fluid or equivalent. Do not use gear oil!!!

How do you add transmission fluid to a 2003 Ford Explorer?

No dip stick or filler tube exists on the 03 4.0L Ford Explorer so you can't add or remove fluild unless you crawl under the vehicle. A fill plug exists on the Trans Case or Trans pan. If you need just a simple service take your vehicle to a transmission shop but if you experiencing hard or late shifts or dash O/D light blinking problems it time for an overhaul. These problems occur around the 50K mile mark and are do to inferior design and material used in the manufacture of this Automatic.

You can't find the leak their is no puddle?

your heater core has an internal issue. if that is not it, then its leaking into your oil, an easy way to check that is drain a small glass cup full of oil. now oil floats on top of radiator fluid so if you have any discolored part of fluild in the cup then you have a blown seal in the engine. but this is a "just in case" type of thing, i doubt it happened to you. but the easiest way to get this thing solved is run a diagnostics on it, autozone is free, and even though nothing shows up on the dash, the computer might know something you dont

Automatic transmission fluid change on a ford focus?

The owners manual and the Ford Website state the fluid is to be changed at 60,000 miles, a flush and filter change at 150,000 miles.. My dealer keeps trying to get me to do a fluid change at 30,000 miles, where the service only requires the fluid level to be checked at this mileage.Counterpoint to the above; while it might not be required, and the dealership service department is in business to make a profit, it might be in this one instance they are actually giving good advice to do a flush and fill every 30,000 miles. Consider that replacing your transmission will cost you somewhere between $2500 and $3500 and during that time you'll have no transportation. There is no doubt that more frequent fluid changes will not harm your transmission, and will most probably extend it's life. Spending $100-$150 every 30,000 miles seems like insurance to me. But the choice is certainly up to each individual.As for the original question, Ford recommends flushing and filling your automatic transmission verses simply changing the fluid. This is because when draining the fluild in a conventional manner, you leave roughly 2/3 of the dirty transmission fluid in your torque converter. Flushing the system captures most of this fluid and replaces it with fresh fluid, therefore extending the life of your transmission. Just about any quality transmission shop can do flush and fills, in addition to the dealership.If you have to do it yourself for financial reasons, I would suggest buying a good manual and spending some time with it before attempting it, rather than trying to do it by following instructions online.
