You can :
  1. Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*

    How much transmission fluid does a 1997 Ford Thunderbird take?

    I'm curious cause I can't find a leak in the system and I'm constantly losing tranny fluid, and need to know how much it takes empty.

    The 13.9 qts stated by ucantcme. Is if the torque converter is empty. The pan on most Automatic Transmission well hold around 4 qts.
    Now you do know that you check an automatic transmission with the motor running, with transmission warmed up and in park (some people don't know that). If you did check it that way and its still low.
    Then check to see if its burning it through the Modulator valve. There should be a vacuum line that goes to the transmission pull it off at the manifold and see if it has fluid in it (it shouldn't). if it does then there's your leak.
    Other things to check
    1) the cooling lines that go to the radiator
    2) pan gasket
    3) tail shaft seal
    4) front pump seal.
    5) a plugged vent
    good luck
