Their advice was to flush out the transmission fluid and power steering and brake fluids. This answer differentiates depending on the transmission and the engine equipped. Mercon V is very expensive. Also, have them check to see if there are any outstanding recalls on your vehicle. The 6-speed transmission in the '05-'07 Ford Five Hundred or Mercury Montego has a total fill of 7.
The customer relationship person I talked to told me to have it towed to a Ford dealership for further diagnosis. . When I tried to accelerate it would not accelerate. If not, then its the plastic piece inside and we have to replace the whole radiator. I have to work tomorrow or I would do it then. Automatic to drain and refill using Dexron type 3 fluid.
Also, I noticed this Toyota 6 speed tranny does not have a dipstick. All I had were jack stands and a shitty floor jack. The one I am rebuilding this week is an 05 and doesn't have a drain plug on it not many do anymore. First off, your engine should be using a metal timing chain not a rubber timing belt that needs to be replaced periodically. Fri Feb 05, 2016 8:14 am These transmissions hold about 13 quarts just a guess but way more than 5.
Do you still have powertrain warranty left? I bought this car because I always believed Ford produced a stand-up product. First off, forget about changing the filter. New question; I know that a trans flush is a bad idea or so I've read , but should I change the fluid in my tranny? Flushing the fluid instead of removing the transmission pan and changing the filter is easier and faster for the mechanic to perform…thus less chance of screwing something up, and flushing will remove more of the fluid from inside the transmission that you are unable to remove if you changed the filter the old fashioned way. I had it towed there, at my expense, and was told one day later that same story my tranny had blown for some reason and needed it repaired at a high price. It will take the government intervening to tell them to issue a recall. He said the transmission looked like new.
But some people have had some component in the transmission fail X miles after a change. How in the hell can a 2006 automatic transmission go bad. There will be a definite difference in the amount flowing out. After coasting into an off the road area, and having it towed I was told it was likely a spline gear I believe on the output shaft of the transmission or the planetary. It says that you should get 5 of the 7 quarts out of the transmission when you do this. If you're adding fluid, simply use the dipstick - according to the illustrated instructions in the Owners Manual - and add what is necessary.
This car isn't even paid off yet! If anything fails you got documentation from factory certified technician of the repair. Install the retaining clip over the cooler tube and fitting. Every summer he would think about repairing it, and every summer decided against it. If your fluid is a bright red in color with no burnt smell then you would probably be ok just to do either one. Any suggestions to help this??? If you were me what would you do? What is the mileage changing interval on these 6 speeds anyways? Thank You for using FixYa.
Start the motor and wait until it almost stops pumping fluid out or until you see new fluid coming out. No slips or missed gears, just wanna take care of some stuff if it needs to be done. What I wanna know is what kind of fluid does it take, and how much just for draining the pan. This seems a little odd to me. I promise you that if I do go to the quick lube I will be like a mother hen and check it all out. Transmission would not move the vehicle and engine just reved. If the transmission fluid level on your Taurus is low, you need to add fluid through the dipstick tube.
If you look at the drain plug when it is out,you will see an extension tube. The place across the street that pulls the pan is a real repair shop but does not have a machine to flush. Do not post pictures taken by others. Does your owners manual have not looked in mine state that you have to have the fluid changed at your milage? Thanks for that good advice fluid does not look to bad when I got car from my dad his mechanic put some stuff in tranny to prep it for a fluid change and he said drive it for a few thousand miles and get fluid changed.
