Where is the transmission fluid dipstick located in a 1996 Ford Thunderbird?
Rear of engine near firewall.
If you are standing by the nose, facing the car, it is on the left side of the engine, all the way in the back. The dipstick can be identified easily by a loop, from which you can pull it out with. At the bottom of the dipstick, there is an indicator so you can test the transmission fluid while it is either cold, or hot.
