It is located at the front of the car on the drivers side, way down in, it is only about 12" long, there will be an open space on the drivers side and you will find it way down in there.

92 honda acord standered ,were on the motor do I add oil for the gears? Or do I even have to?

  1. The gears are in the transmission.. you can add oil to the trans if it is low.. Auto trans uses auto trans fluid. There is a dip stick.
  2. Standard trans you must remove a plug in the side of it to check the fluid.
  3. The engine uses motor oil.. you remove the cap that is attached to the top of the motor.. but first check the oil with the dip stick.

How to check the automatic gear box oil level ? and how to change it? thanks in advance

Hi Sam, To check fluid level open the bonnet (hood) start the engine and apply parking brake. With your foot pushing hard on the brake, move selector lever from P to R N D 3 2 L and back, waiting for about one or two seconds between shifts and repeat procedure. Select N and check level on stick, making sure that indicated level is between the relevant marks (either hot or cold). Top up through same tube where dip stick is situated. Smell the fluid on the dip stick and if it has a burned smell replace immediately. It would be best to drop the oil pan during this procedure and replace the filter and a new oil pan gasket. To drain box remove the plug under the box and allow old fluid to drain. There are two drain plugs, one for the transfer box and the other for the gear box. Both oils should be replaced once a year. Make sure of using recommended lubricants in both units. Regards Johngee10

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1998 c70

There isnt' one. Volvos are equipped with vent-box located underneath the intake manifold. Remove the oil dip stick tube and then the intake manifold and remove the box. Install a new breather box and make sure to clean the lines going to and from the box. If the breather box gets clogged, oil will push from the oil filler cap, dip stick tube and worst case, blow through the engine seals.

Where is transmision fluid level check

You do not say if it is a manual or auto.

Manual - The level fill plug is left hand side looking up at the gear box from underneath on your back, head at the engine end. Undo on level ground or a ramp if possible. You will need a imperial socket/spanner set.
When you undo the upper plug, which is about the middle of the box, you should find a clear red oil in side, is just below the thread level. You will not see this so use a pencil as a dip stick, only putting in an inch, do not let go of it, and if you find that the level is low check seals. If less than 1/4 inch don't worry.

Top as needed with gear box oil see owners hand book, or your local autostore. If if brown or milky coff coloured it is in need of replacement and any problems such as water ingress will need to be identified.

Autos is easy, dip stick in the engine bay up by the bulk head......though you will need to run the engine at some stage of checking this, and use you hand brake, engine in neutral. There is an oil filler tube to top to amke life a bit easier.

Get a service manual or book or try

How do i check my transmission fluid? for a 2000

Set the parking brake and put a block on at least one wheel. Pop the hood and find the Transmission dipstick. Start the engine and shift the gear shift into neutral. Pull the dipstick, wipe it with a clean rag, put it back in, pull it out and read it.
