On a manual transmission you will not have a dipstick, there will be 2 plugs on the side of the transmission. the top one, the one closer to the floor of the vehicle, is the level. You pull the plug and add fluid to the hole until it is to that level, or a slight amount comes back out as you add it.

Sounds like you have a scrinco stuck or worn out and the way you will get away with out grinding till you can get it done is to drive it like the old cars and trucks and that is to double de clutch between 3rd and 4th
all you do is to clutch in pull into nutural clutch out and in again fast and in to 4th gear (simple).

You have a faulty ECU which will need replacement. You may have damage to your gearbox now as a result.

Transmission


Usually the dipstick will be either red handled or yellow. If you own a manual to the car just look in the index for transmission fluid/fill and that should point you in the right direction. Most likely located on passenger side of car back towards firewall. Fluid will be of a reddish color and usually states on dipstick how to check it, which is either in PARK or NEUTRAL with engine idling and normal operating temperature.

What is the ECT power button for on the 1997 rav4


The ECT button (which stands for "Electronically Controlled Transmission")
changes the shift points for the automatic transmission. When engaged,
the transmission shifts later, allowing the engine to get to a higher
power level and accelerate faster. Gas mileage is usually reduced in
this mode. Use it when you need to get up to speed faster; for example,
to merge into fast moving traffic. The normal position for this switch
is OFF. ECT acts like a turbo. Now dont go on street racing ;)

95 Subaru legacy wagon manual transmission fluid


The dipstick has a black plastic handle in the shape of ring of about 1 inch in diameter. It is located on the left side of the engine (looking from front) behind the spark plugs. Best visible from the passenger side fender location (start looking from the left part of the transmission , the black handle clearly stands out on the white metal).

Transmission problems


check your transmission fluid level, it is probably low. do so with the engine running and the shift lever in Park. the level should be within a certain range on the dipstick. checking it cold will be at a lower range than if you checked it hot, so be mindful of what the dipstick ranges are.

Transmission dipstick location


Sorry, I'm just now getting it to you.  The dipstick is located on the passenger side of the car way down at the bottom.  It should have a yellow handle.  It's just to the right and down of the battery.  Let me know if you can't find it still and I will get you a picture somehow.

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears


The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.
