2008 Mustang GT transmission whining at idle, sometimes

Customer Question

2008 Mustang GT transmission whining at idle, sometimes catches switching to reverse sometimes slips at speed
JA: Have you heard this particular sound before?
Customer: Just on other cars when their transmissions need fluid
JA: Are you fixing your Mustang GT yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I wanted to check the fluid, and add some, BUT this model has no dip stick so no I havent tried anything
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Sometimes when you put it in gear it hesitates to go into gear. SO it sounds like a transmission fluid issue but how in the hell can you add fluid? But thats it really

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. if you are hearing whining from the tranny its the transmission fluid pump going bad. if there is no dipstick then its a sealed unit but let me find out for sure.

the transmission doesn't have a dipstick. Your best bet is to take it to the shop and let them check it. Ford like most other manufactures are doing away with transmission dipsticks. Your transmission pan has a dual plug in it and the only way to add fluid is with the car on a lift with a pump and adapter.
