Put it down the dipstick tube that you check the trans fluid with using a funnel. Don't put much in at a time before you check the level - remember to check the level with engine running, trans warmed up after driving 15 minutes and the car in park with parking brake on. Put the fluid in and see what it does for your shifting.

1990 Honda Accord EX manual transmission sticks in 5th gear, if i come off an exit ramp at low speed or stop the transmission sticks in fifth gear and almost impossible to pull it out of fifth gear however...


I would check to see if the fluid is low, and replace it with Honda manual transmission fluid first. Honda manual transmissions originally used engine oil, never gear oil, then Honda came out with manual trans fluid. Either would work, but the Honda manual fluid would be better.

2005 vw beatle trans is sliping .is this this major? or just low on fluid ? cant check it w/out a dip stick.


Yes and yes. Are you sure it doesn't have a dipstick? Engine is transverse/sideways, transmission is on driver side? Normal transmission check is; warm transmission, engine running, hold brake, shift through all gears, put back in park, engine still running, pull dispstick, wipe and check dipstick again. Should be near "warm" markings.

Where is transmission solenoid located on 1995 vw jetta !!!!


Inside the transmission case above the pan. You should probably let a transmission mechanic handle this one.

1998 pontiac transport 3.4 auto leaking trans fluid


It sounds like the Transmission line has a leak. Check the transmission line from the transmission to the radiator. You have two steel lines which runs to and from the transmission to the transmission cooler in the radiator. The line could be corroded and may need to be replaced, good luck and service the transmission too. The transmission on the transport are know to have problems when ran low on fluid or dirty transmission filter.
Good luck and hope this helps.
