Ford stopped having dip sticks for the auto on approx Feb 96. That was also when they changed the Power steer fluid to Tractor tranny fluid. (part number R1-424)

What wheels are you running? or what size tyres are you running? This can effect the speedo.

185's are too small. tightar5es bought those to put on. swap the front to the rear, and see how that goes.

Yes, but the 75 is the aspect ratio. so the 195/75R14 is taller than a 185/75R14. The side wall height is 75% of the width of the tyre. see?
