There is no drain plug, in order to drain the trans u must drop the transmission pan off, this is a very messy job, use a plastic garbage can lid with holes drilled in it to catch the fluid place that over a large drain pan. When u refill the trans do not overfill it, if u deo u will run the risk of damage to the trans.

what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.

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.

Under normal driving the fluid never needs to be changed except if it is being serviced for a problem. It should use Dexron VI fluid.

Where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000


There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.

Tranmission oil change


There is a drain plug on your accord for this. Run the car to reach operating temp. and remove passenger side front wheel for easier access to drain plug, which is located near the front of the wheel/tire. The drain plug is removed by inserting a 1/2 inch drive ratchet, or extension into the square recess of the drain plug, and then remove like u would a regular bolt or nut. Have a drain pan ready. Replace plug, tighten to 36 ft lbs , replace wheel, with a long thin funnel, add fluid thru dipstick opening with engine running, shift thru the gears several times to allow fluid to flow thru trans. Do not overfill, check level with car parked on level surface. To check fluid level, do NOT screw dipstick in. Let me know if u need more help/info.
