Question Answered: location of transmission dip stick
April 26, 2012, 10:07 PM
A Mountaineer does not have a dipstick on the transmission; instead, it has a plug that releases fluid and also allows operators to add fluid.The drain plug is located on either the left or right side of the transmission.Remove the plug by unscrewing it with your hand. Place a pan underneath the transmission so that any excess fluid that may leak out can be caught. http://www.ehow.com/how_6199933_add-transmission-fluid-mountaineer.html#ixzz1tDL6v0yp
Question Answered: What causes the key to get stuck in the ignition?
April 26, 2012, 10:01 PM
There is a device in the key hole that's called the tumbler and it may be stuck and not want to release the key. There should be a pin hole under the steering housing that is used to take the whole key ignition out with the key sill inserted in the ignition. May need to use a paper clip to push the button under steering housing to release the key and cylinder.
