This would be the detent ball i believe you might better have to to a shop to repair before that gets ground into the gears. or try draining fluid and see if you can get out. should be a spring and ball

How would you get a stripped fill plug off a 5speed geo tracker gearbox?


if its a gear box plug, you can tack weld a nut to the plug and remove the plug via the nut. It is far enough away from components to not get damaged by heat. If you dont have a welder then try using JB weld and a nut. If the plug is for a ratchet then use a bolt instead of a nut. Purchase new plug.

Change transmision oil


You don't say if it's auto or stick shift. So-

Auto. Start the engine until warm. Drive vehicle onto ramps, SECURE IT! front up, turn engine off. With engine warm, at the back of the gearbox is a drain plug (we'll deal with that first) Remove the plug and drain all oil out of the gearbox. On the bottom of an auto box there is a plate, if it is easily accessable remove the plate, taking care not to split the seal, Wipe off as much of the reidue as possible, then using a releasing oil, somthing like WD40, spray the inside of the plate and it disolves the final bit of gunk. Replace the plate, the plug, Wipe some clean oil on ALL surfaces that are touching, seals etc, and tighten. Under the hood is a dipstick, by the bulkhead, for the gearbox. Remove the dipstick, and with a funnel through the dipstick pipe, top up the gearbox with the CORRECT OIL until it touches the bottom of the stick, Start the engine and slowly, let the car run off the ramps. With the engine running, wait until up to temp, check your level again, it will have dropped, don't panic, then top up the same way until the oil is between the two marks on the dipstick.

NOW

Stick shift. the same as above up until I mention the plate. There isn't one! Remove all the oil, refit the plug. On the top of the gearbox, just off centre, is the re-fil nut. With the car on the ramp, refill with oil. The oil should have come with a flexi tube on top of the bottle, if not, use a funnel on a tube that fits into the nut hole on top of the gearbox, making sure you can access it though the engine bay to fill. Get someone to lie under the car so they can see when the oil comes out of the fill hole, that means it's full. Refit the filler plug, and reverse off ramps. There is no dipstick to check on a stick shift, you don't need it.

It sounds like a long job, but it'll take an hour tops!

Let me know how you get on, any further problembs let my know. Dave

Look all around the housing for a fill plug about mid-way up from the bottom.
Unscrew the plug (ususally with a 3/8" ratchet extenesion) and pump in the correct gear oil until it just begins to drip out the fill hole. Replace the plug snugly.
