Mercury Tracer

How do you check the transmission fluid level in a 1989 Mercury Tracer?

I have a 89 tracer with a 5 speed manual transmission. When I had the transmission oil changed they removed the speedometer cable from the transmission and filled it through the odometer drive mounting hole. I laughed at the mechanic but he said that was the only way to do it. If there is no other hole to check the oil I guess you may have to pull the odometer cable to check it!!! Hope this helps you out. RG

Chevrolet optra automatic transmission fluid level check?

I hear that for Optra's there is no way to check the transmission fluid level, other than to actually remove the transmission fluid cover under the vehicle. Your best bet is to just replace the transmission fluid level at a certain interval (GM says 160,000km), but I would go for more often .

When checking transmission fluid with engine cold dip stick shows a fluid level above hot marking when checking level with hot engine the fluid level shown is below the cold marking is this a problem?

Most manufacturers want you to check trans fluid when it is hot and in park, but check your owner's manual to double check. If it's low when hot, add more. It's not uncommon for it to show above the full mark when cold. Some transmissions have a temperature regulated valve that opens when cold and dumps any fluid in that's stored in the side cover down into the bottom of the transmission. Then it closes when the trans heats up.

Nissan Frontier

How do you check Nissan Frontier transmission fluid?

Below is what Nissan would like you to think. If your Frontier is 2005+ 2nd gen, then there is a dip stick. it's located down on the passenger side of the engine near the exhaust manifold. It's small, and it's bolted down with a 10mm bolt. You'll need to remove that to pull the dipstick. Also, there is an actual drain plug in the corner of the transmission pan. You can do a partial drain/fill yourself in your garage with minimal effort.

You cant check the transmission fluid because there isn't a dip stick or plug.

The transmission oil is change using a pressure pump system at the dealer while the transmission is running via the transmission cooling lines. This system bleeds all the fluid out and flushes the entire system, replacing all the fluid. The only draw back is that it uses really expensive fluid and it costs about $350 in Canada to have it done. Now that's an expensive oil change.
