Question about 1998 Saturn SL
I have a 98 saturn sl and while i was about to drive back from vacation i checked the fluids to my surprise i found a little dipstick with a red tip and when i pulled it out it looked like transmission fluid(red) usually u only have tranny fluid with an automatic. it said i was a pint low but not sure what this is as i bought it after market and dont have the manual. i cant seem to find a place to pour anything either except where that dipstick is..any knowledge out there?
I have a 1998 saturn with a manual transmission and it took me quite some time to locate the dip stick. it is located on top of the gearbox close to the brake resevoir where the linkeage connects. it has a red plastic clip on top of the dip stick and submerges verticaly into the gearbox and is about six inches long. the red clip can easliy be hidden with black dirt and not seen. do not confuse this with the clutch reservoir fluid located to the right of the brake master cylnder. good luck.

Where was this dipstick? Was it on the transmission? Some manual transmissions use automatic tranny fluid. If this dipstick was on the transmission it probally is the tranny dipstick. If you're still not sure just stop by your local garage or phone your dealer and ask.
