Thanks for any reply you can give! When stopped on a hill the vehicle does not go forward it rolls backwards and then the engine stalls. You may have to ask them to pull up the parts diagram. Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. . Good luck and hope this helps.
I hope this helps someone as much as it did me!! I was inspecting a 2007 Navi today to buy it and after 30 seconds looking at the engine compartment trying to find the trans. In this day and age of the Weather Channel app, I all too often check the weather online before ever bothering to look out the window. I think ford knows the fact about replacing the oil on the transmission would kill the transmission quickly and by removing the dip stick, this act will be limited to them. The contact stated that all of the transmission fluid leaked out of the vehicle. I talked to the previous owner. Not finding one, I stopped by the Ford dealer and pulled into the service dept.
If you are having problems with the transmission in your F-150, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert. No dipstick, dealer only service, etc. If you simply cannot find two dipsticks under the hood, it's under the engine cowl. Hopefully it goes away over time. We found this post and from there he was able to locate the dipstick. If the transmission fluid level in your F-150 is low, you need to add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube.
I siphoned out approx 5 quarts and replaced with new fluid. Before I do that, Id like to pump out as much fluid as I can. Not much force was needed thankfully. Symptoms involved really bad shudder at low rpm when going from 4th to 5th gear. Oh and the type of transmission fluid should be in your manuel or stamped on the dip stick.
The engine would rev as if the gear were in neutral. To add fluid, you can use one of the following or both if you like. But I was wondering if that would cause the check engine light to come on? The dealer advised that the manufacturer was using a different type of transmission for his particular year, make and model vehicle. The engine in your 2009 Ford F-150 should be running when you perform a transmission fluid level check, otherwise it will be inaccurate. Pull the dip stick out clean it off and check it again. I declined and went on my way.
The vehicle was not further repaired. Have it done at a Transmission shop and you'll know that the transmission level is fine and have them show you have to check and fill the Transmission. This depends on what trany is in that truck, one has a dip stick tube with a normal dip stick to check the level and then the other trany has no dipstick theres a plug on the side of the trany where the tube would go , the plug need to be removed and to add fluid you would need a pump and small hose to pump it in, also these tranys take a certain type of fluid so check with your local dealer , the wrong fluid will damage the trany, the plug you remove will have a small stick on it to measure the level, when checking the level you dont put plug all the way in only the stick part goes in. Before removing the driveshaft, drain the fluid from the transmission. Of course plastic dipstick broke in 2 places after removing. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that they were not aware of any issue that existed in the vehicle.
Can anyone give me an idea of what milage the fluid should be left alone or does that millage number exist. The best sequence would be to pump out 3. Now, do I have a 4 speed? Although its a late response wanted to share my experience. The consumer stated 1st gear would become inoperable after stopping and trying to take off. How ignorant can one be? Ive always opened a line to the cooler and had the tranny pump out the fluid on my other vehicles.
The line coming out of the passenger side of the atf cooler is the pressure side and fluid will pump out of it from your transmission. So I was wondering what else can go wrong if it is driven like that until I can get it fixed? It only takes a little bending to put this rig into the hole seating it with the washer. I recommend some Mechanix-type heat-resistant gloves for the next few steps. I do not understand why ford decided to take that away. I owned a 2003 Navi and it had a dip stick. It has also stuck in between gears causing us to have to stop shut the truck off and restart to get going again.
The failure mileage was 40,337 and the current mileage was 52,000. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and had the transmission calibrated, but the repair only lasted four to five days before the failure recurred. You have two dipsticks, one for engine oil and one for transmission fluid. Im thinking of dropping the pan and replacing the filter. I thought I would first drop the Pan and check the fluid and change it and the filter if there were no obvious signs of metal etc in there. Mark a five gallon bucket in quart increments so you can keep track of old fluid volume. The contact stated that he was taking the vehicle to the dealer for the forth time for transmission failures.
