Yes the transmission fluid goes in the location of the dipstick. As for the yellow "oil", if you just recently got the car maybe the previous owner put engine oil in the tranny fluid receptor instead of the engine...it's been known to happen. As far as I know, tranny fluid should be red, even if water gets into it, it's still a pinkish color. Maybe better to drain it and replace it. Good luck.

What year manual transmission fits to a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX?


Pretty much any "EJ" transmission will fit any "EJ" engine, the only problems are whether the clutch is a pull or push type release bearing? That will also make a difference how the clutch slave cylinder mounts up. If it isn't a turbo model trans, it will not take the HP that the engine puts out for very long. The Impreza STI manual trans will bolt up, but there will be some exhaust fitment issues where the down pipe bracket connects to the trans.

Where do you put the transmission fluid into a chev 1995 g10. location of the reservior


There is no reservoir, per say, but there should be a dipstick colored yellow, or maybe red...but a dipstick none the less. Usually towards the back of the motor, driver's side. (Not the oil dipstick.)

The tranny dipstick goes in/comes out of a long filler tube. You need a funnel to fill/level off the trans. fluid level.

Time to look around in junkyards or ebay for a similar transmission with much lower mileage, or google around and see if you can exchange that tranny for a rebuilt one.

02 impreza wrx problem with turbo PLEASE HELP


This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.

I bought a Subaru Impreza STI 2009 model .. What kind of the oil used in this car and is it Syntihtic oil?


i have an 05 sti. its the same motor as the 09. you definitley want to use a high quality full synthetic oil 5w-30. check the level often because it is normal for this car to burn a little oil do to the turbo. especially if you start making performance mods.
