sounds like a CVT transmission~ there is no reason to go inside there...unless dripping green a monster...but your oil changers will know what to do....these are very difficult to do...needs a big vacuum machine and pressure thingy~ best leave the CVT to the professionals~ the transmission givin' you trouble?...have it looked at~


Uhhh, Bob, it is not a CVT. For info on Ford transmissions go to the link.....
