There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on


There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

Skoda gear selector assembly manual gearbox 1998 felicia please show design and possible solution to oil leak from gear box end


Normally there is a seal of sorts here (it may be a felt seal or a rubber flap) but I find that if there is a problem here I check firstly the oil level in the gear box and the viscosity of the oil in the box Remove the filler plug (plug in the side of the box ) and drain until oil is level with the bottom of the threads. Best replace oil with a known viscosity oil for you gear box.

How check oil in gearbox of a 1999 hilux


if it is a manual gearbox there should be a plug on the side of the gearbox about halfway up unscrew it & by putting your finger in & feeling down you should be able to feel the oil, if not you need to add oil, this plug is also the oil level plug, you add oil until it runs out of the hole,if it an automatic transmission you should find a dipstick similar to the engine dipstick & you add oil through that tube......hope this helps......cheers

Any leak is not right. Try tightening the flange slightly - do not over tighten. If the leak persists the gasket will need to be replaced. I assume you are speaking of the automatic gearbox oil cooler.

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.

Oil leak from driveshaft n/s


not sure if you can interchange the manual & aut shafts, but you should check to see if there is excessive play where the shaft enters the gear box if so the diff bearings my be worn, if there is no play or noises from gear box when driving, remove the shaft again an try the seal on the shaft to check it's a proper fit, before fitting seals it is a good idea to leave them soaking in oil for a few hours prior to fitting

hope this helps
