It's located on the right front (as u sit in the car) transaxle housing, which will be below or nearly below the battery. There are 2 types of trans. dipsticks, one is a screw in type, to check the fluid, the car should be at normal operating temperature, and the engine OFF. The screw in type dipstick should be pulled out, wipe off w/ clean rag, re-insert, but DO NOT tighten. Pull up, and check level. If u tighten the dipstick to check the level u will get a false reading, you must only push "til it makes contact. When finished, tighten by hand only, don't use a wrench.
The other type is just a push in dipstick, located in the same area, it just doesn't have any threads to tighten. Make sure it is fully inserted to check, and when done. countrycurt0

1996 Honda Accord EX Manual trans. Where is oil level plug. what kind of oil?


Hi there,

All Honda manual transaxles use the Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) as the original factory fill. This oil is similar to a 10W-30 or 10W-40 viscosity engine oil, and this oil can be substituted temporarily. However, the manufacturer recommends the use of their MTF when changing the fluid.

Level Check

The transaxle fluid should be changed every 90,000 miles (144,000 km) or 6 years under normal driving conditions. In severe driving conditions the fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or every 2 years, whichever occurs first.
Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface. If the vehicle is raised, make sure the vehicle is safely supported and level

NOTE: Do not confuse the drain plug with the fill plug.
The fill plug is in the mid section of the transaxle. The drain plug is near the bottom of the transaxle.
  1. The oil level is checked by removing the oil fill plug on the side of the transaxle. The transaxle fluid should just meet the lower threads of the transaxle fill hole.
  2. Remove the oil level check bolt from the side of the transaxle. If oil runs out, or if oil can be felt near the threaded fill hole opening, reinstall and retighten the bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. If the level needs to be topped off, pour oil in slowly until it begins to run out then, install and tighten the filler bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION FLUID IN MY ISUZU RODEO 1998 4WD V6-3.2L ENG. WHERE IS THE FILLER???


stevenhurc_15.jpg most didnt have dip stick for auto trans, fill through fill plug shown then start and run through gears to circulate oil then remove fill plug while engine is still running and topup until oil just trickles out of filler plug hole. It is a bit of a pain to fill and can get messy depending on what you have available and be careful of the hot exhaust as you fill and top up trans level.

WHILE DOING AN ENGINE OIL CHANGE I DRAINED THE AUTO TRANS FLUID BY MISTAKE. HOW DO I RE'FILL THE TRANS ?


Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Locate the dip stick on the transmission its a very short one it on the front of the transmisson. Using a transmission funnel (it has a long skinny hose) pour fluid through the dipstick hole. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA, contact if you need more help

How to fill automatic transmission fluid 1998 Accord 4 door


there is a large fill plug on top of the trans. it is a 17mm. you can see it from under the hood on the rear top of the trans. by the way this bolt is typically very tight and then breaks free very loose so be careful you dont smash your hand when it breaks free. also if your doing a trans drain and fill its only 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 quarts. and i would recommend using honda auto trans fluid- hope this helps

Where is the transmission fluid cap on a manual 87 toyota pickup


Manual transmissions don't use 'transmission fluid', so they don't have a 'cap' like autos do. Usually there is a bolt on the side of the transmission, sort of like a drain plug, where you add oil. The hole also acts as the level check: you add gear oil until it starts to run out the hole, that's how you know you have enough.

You can buy a Haynes or Chilton manual that will have good info on basic stuff, with pictures and diagrams of all the important parts.
