Question about 1993 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I'm unsure where the proper fill plug is on the standard 5 speed

I drained the old fluid out, and I was pretty sure I knew where the fill plug was only to find out I was , apparently, wrong. I drained it because it would not shift silky smooth until after being driven a while , and it has over 100k mi. I just got the car, and am used to VW beetles of the 50-60's, which are a lot more straightforward, seemingly. I planned to put in Amzoil synthetic fluid, but I want to make sure I use the right fill plug. the only one I have identified is on the firewall side of the transmission and seems too low. The one I first thought it was is nice and high up, and dripped some rather black fluid out of it when I removed it, but it seems blocked to any filler hose, so I assume that is not correct. Unfortunately, my time availability means I'm doing this job during the evening when it is dark, and I'm using a flashlight. I appreciate your assistance.

    This solution is great for an automatic tranny. As I stated, mine is a 5 speed manual. I really appreciate your time, and I'd guess you know the answer to the manual tranny also, so I look forward to your reply on that note. Thanks very much in advance.

How many liters of 80/90 weight gear oil does my 1990 chevy c1500 take in the transmission?


Fill at side fill hole until fluid begins to run back out. Let it run until it stops, install plug and wipe up excess. If fully drained, usually holds less than 3 liters.

How to change the transmission oil, and how many quarts to use, knowing that the SUV has what is called a sealed transmission.


Basically, these transmissions are filled using what's called a "double fill" technique. There are two drain plugs, one which actually drains the pan, and another that has an overflow collar inside that sets the level. You basically pump transmission fluid in with the engine off and the overflow plug out, until the fluid starts to flow out of the plug. Then start the engine and let it idle, pump in more fluid again until it starts to overflow again, and then replace the drain plug. This is supposed to be done with the ATF at approx. 40deg C, or basically just warm to the touch. You will likely need around 4 qts of fluid.

How to change gearbox oil


gear + BOX
so is the transfer case, box. or the 5 speed stick box or?
what?
we drain it then fill it, to the mark.
on all gear boxes.
if A/T we RTM read the operators guide. for how to do it right,
most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

How much trans fluid capacity in the manual 5 speed dodge stealth


never change filter as i dont think it exsists. The fill should be located on the transmission up from the drain. You fill untill fluid pours out and stops then replace plug. Car must be level.

How do i put fluid in the transmission there is no


On the passenger side of the transmission, there is a fill plug and a drain plug. The fill will be the upper plug and it's the one you use to check to make sure you have the right amount of transmission fluid in your transmission. Manual Transmission, NV3500..........2 liters Manual Transmission, NV1500..........2.7 liters

Undo the plug with a wrench and if the transmission trickles out, your good to go. If there is no fluid trickling out, top it off and place the plug back in and tighten to (Manual Transmission NV1500 Fill Plug 17 ft/lbs) or (Manual Transmission NV3500 Fill Plug 44 ft/lbs)
Thank you for using fixya and be safe. Drain Plug 44 ft/lbs Drain Plug 27 ft/lbs

Cant find where to add trans fluid on 97 jetta 5 speed


A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.

If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.

Where is the transmission dipstick for the 2001 chevy cavalier 2.2 liter?


There is no dipstick for the newer model Automatic transmission Cavaliers. There is only a red fill cap on the driver’s side on top of the transmission. The only way to check it is to jack up the car, making sure it level with a jackstand on each side of the car, and remove a small plug from the side of the transmission, underneath the car. It will be small and in an American size. It is either a 3/8" or a 7/16" size plug. Once it is removed, fluid will drain out if it is overfilled. Once there is no more fluid coming out, it is at it's proper level. If there is none coming out, then add more until it comes out and levels off. It has a capacity of about 11 quarts for the 4 speed models. The 3 speed models have about 7 quarts.

The dipstick for the 5 speed manual transmission is located on the back side of the engine. It will have either a white or yellow handle. It holds about 2 quarts of syncro-mesh transmission fluid. It is important that this fluid is used for the manual or problems will occur.
