Fill until fluid bgins to drip out the side hole. With the transmission and the vehicle presumably as well level, remove this upper plug. Stand at the front of the T-bird with the hood raised. Thats when after I come to a stop it won't move not even in reverse gear. I have changed the filter and fluid when i first got it because i seen the fluid had what looked to be some water in it. Being an f 350 u have some clearance on a creeper. Do not overfill as this can damage the transmission.
The normal procedure is to drive the vehicle until it is at normal operating temperature, 10 miles, will accomplish this. Again, pull the dip stick up and out of the holder, and keep the dip stick pointing to the ground. It also states that there is no dipstick that allows you to check it yourself. Also, can't I just disconnect the line from the transmission itself rather that the rad. Doesn't slip once even when I get on the throttle, and it kicks down into passing gear. I finally dropped it into low, and got it moving.
The rest is still up inside the torque converter. Drop the pan, change filter etc. The speedometer gear housing sits on top of the manual transmission, below about where the brake master cylinder is mounted. Answer top side of the trans it is around little knob made of rubber. Wipe all dirt and foreign matter from the plug and from around the plug.
It overheated and dumped everything out of the overflow. This is a wired switch on the back right wall of the transfer case housing below the aforementioned speed sensor. To determine which transmission you have its as easy as climbing under the car and counting the bolts on the transmission pan. On some vehicles you check cold and with the vehicle not running. There are lines on the end of the dip stick to let you know if the fluid is full, or low.
Answer That depends on what kind of transmission service we are doing. At approximately 295° F, transmission clutch plates begin to slip because the oil is breaking down further. Is that only changing half the fluid? That is the transmission fliud dip stic … k. Start up engine and check level. Have a nice Day Not very friendly.
Look for a plug on the front side of the transmission housing, it may be facing downward 45 deg angle and likely is the same size as the drain plug. Remove the horizontal … metal clip that retains the speedometer cable in the housing I actually tossed this clip, you don't need it , pull the cable up out of the housing, remove the wiring connector from the housing, remove the 10mm bolt that holds the housing in place, and rotate the housing back and forth to work it loose. Remove the transmission sip stick, wipe it clean, reinsert and remove and check the level. Mechanics around here are very dishonest so I don't want to get taken to the cleaners. Thanks It isn't a 4x4 but 2 wheel drive. When I came back out of the store after about 20 minutes, it ran ok. That's what I hear, but I haven't driven the 250K yet so I couldn't tell you for sure.
Park on a level surface. Chances are if you pull the tranny dipstick, and smell the fluid it smells burnt right? The transmission fluid level should be at the bottom edge of this hole. Make sure level is correct. I'm not sure what to make of the 'moisture' issue. Pull it out and you are able to read it. I have checked the trans fluid, and it ok.
I just let it cool down, filled it back up and drove it for another 2-3K then it gave out. Reconnect the feed line to the radiator or aux. Reinstall pan, fill back up to capacity. It slowly started dragging when it should shift to higher gears then 1 day would not leave 1st gear and by the time I got home 15 miles later it wouldn't shift at all. That means the cargo-carrying capacity--the amount of cargo that the pickup is capable of carrying in its cargo bed--is three-quarters of a ton, or 1,500 pounds.
Continue this until the fluid is up to the full line. Remove th … e dipstick and wipe clean. You can do it from top-side, though -- you don't have to go under the car. I noticed if I let it sit for awhile the transmission is fine, and shifts good. When you take out the housing, look at the oil level on the speedometer gear.
Normally by starting the engine and putting in park while idling. And yes, it does act like it's in neutral when it acts up. The problem comes after I drive it any distance like 20 miles or so. Check the neutral safety switch. If you're adding fluid, simply use the dipstick - according to the illustrated instructions in the Owners Manual - and add what is necessary. I don't wnt to have to put out money having it rebuilt and later finding out that wasn't the problem.
