is this a manual or automatic. manual trans take 80/90 weight gear oil and you fill it to the bottom of the fill hole. the amount depends on if your topping it up or changing all the oil. most take about 4 litres. at any rate fill to bottom of fill hole. if automatic you can use Dexron trans fluid or Honda trans fluid. fill until the level is within the add and full marks on the dip stick.
on any vehicle with an automatic transmission, there are two dip sticks. One to measure oil level, and the other transmission fluid level( typically labled 'check with engine running in park'). To add transmission fluid requires a funnel to introduce fluid via the dip-stick tube.
If you have a manual transmission, then you don't need transmission fluid, you need gear oil, which can be measured at the transmission and added at the same port.
Hi Louie, When the ATF smells burned it usually indicates a problem inside the gearbox. Let's hope not though. Drain the ATF oil and then drop the gearbox oil pan. Remove and replace the oil filter and the pan gasket and then refit it. Fill the box with the required amount of transmission fluid. Once filled, make sure the park brake is fully engaged and then check the ATF level with the engine running and the shift in neutral selected. It should be at the top of the lower marks on the transmission dip stick. If the problem persists, the gearbox needs major work or replacement. Regards John
For a manual gearbox, there isn't a dipstick. There is a plug on the LH side of the diff housing part of the gearbox, just rearwards of where the LH driveshaft leaves the diff. Remove this plug, and the box should be filled to this level. This needs to be done on a level surface. If changing the oil, about 2.5 litres will be needed after draining the old stuff.
look in the engine bay and you will find a big dip stick near the back of the engine bay this has a long dip stick on it, thats were you "top up" the atf fluid,, dont over fill the gear box, only add oil a little at a time
