You need to take out the bolts holding the cover on but leave 2 in it one on eather side then pop it open with a flat head screw driver make sure u got an oil pan under it first . Then replace your gasket and put the cover back on, as for filling it there is a bolt on the front side of the axle and its usually a square hole that a 3/8 drive rachet will fit in u stick the rachet in it and take it out. Then you fill it up with the suggested gear oil and the specified amount.

Where do you put gearbox oil in

there is a bolt (sometimes a square plug or a square cutout for a 1/2 inch drive rachet head) attached to the 'pumpkin', higher up-you remove that and fill there-fill until it starts to run out, then it is full.

How to check differential fluid level

on the differental, usually on the side next to the driveshaft you should see a plug with a square head inset, a ratchet with a short 3/8's extension will fit right in this square, unscrew the plug and remove it, you can stick you pinky finger in this hole to see if you can touch the fluid, if not you need to fill it with 85W gear oil,add gear oil until it just does start to run out

Where do i put the transmission oil in a standard car

There is a plug on the side of the transmission--usually fits a 3/8 or 1/2 inch rachet. Fill with gear oil until oil starts to flow back (if oil comes out the fill port, the level is correct).

How to check the transmission fluid

Don't know what kind of transmission you are dealing with-but I suspect it's a manual trans. To check gear oil level-crawl under car and look for a "plug"-it usually has a four sided wrench flat-or-it will have a "square" hole that will have the same size as a ratchet wrench's "drive" (3/8" or 1/2"). Remove the plug-gently insert a pinky finger in it-pointing downward. Pull finger out-if there is oil on finger-you are probably fine. If it was a bit of a reach-little oil on finger-you may need to add gear oil.Insert a hose into plug hole-run it up to outside of car and pour gearoil into it using a funnel. When oil starts spilling out of plug hole-you have enough oil added to trans.Gear oil is thick-it will take awhile for it to flow thru hose-heating oil up helps a bit.

Lookin to put in gear oil in thr rear

On the front side of the rear differential (drivers side I think, maybe passenger's) there's a plug with a square indentation in it. Just big enough to fit a 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet head into it. Turn it counter-clockwise to remove it. It's a little over half way up because that's where the fluid should be. Make sure you're on even/level ground. Gear oil can be added most times by cutting the tip off the nipple on the bottle, slip a small hose over it, invert and squeeze the bottle.

I don,t know how to check the gear oil in my 97 suzuki esteem manual transmission or how to add gear oil

The fill plug is on the left hand side of the diff casing just rearwards of where the left hand drive shaft exits the gearbox. You will need a 10mm square drive (a 3/8" ratchet is close, but you have to make sure it stays in the square) to undo it. The box should be filled to this level.
