On a 2000 s-type 4.0 There is a combination drain plus check valve on the bottom of the Pan and a fill hole on the back right side. Use WD-40 to help free up the allen-screw in the middle of the drain plug. Hold the drain screw while opening the level checking screw. If it is full, a small amount may run out. If light red fluid runs out it's OK. If brown, You got a problem. It uses special fluid! Take it to have it done in a Jaguar service facility. Or educate yourself on how to do it.

This is a ''filled for life box'' there is no recognised user fill point. But at 2-0-clock looking from the rear of the gearbox is a fill/inspection plug for jaguar service use only, I believe there is a secondary screw in the middle of this plug which is the fluid level. I have never checked this plug for level so proceed with caution.
Why do you need to check level ?

2002 x type .. is it possible to OVER fill the transmission fluid..if so will it cause the transmission to not move in reverse?


02-06 Jaguar X-types should all have a sealed transmission which cannot have fluid added to them but by the transmission shop. My wife's 02 x-type had the tranny go out completely at about 80K. Cost us $3500 and our transmission guy said it was a very common problem/manufacturing defect.
If it doesn't go into reverse odds are the transmission is on its way out. Good luck!

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil


  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

Where is the location on a 1994 honda civic ex that i would fill the manual transmission with gear oil?


Hello,
Manual transmissions have a fill plug and a drain plug on the side of the transmission. The fill plug is a little above the drain plug. Pull the fill plug and fill the transmission until the transmission fluid just barely seeps out and re-plug the transmission. That is the proper way to fill it. You will need a long stem funnel to give you the room you need to fill it. Your transmission requires a 10W30 weight motor oil, just like your engine. If you have a little time and 3 or 4 quarts of oil laying around you can pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug and let all the oil drain out. Then plug the transmission and re-fill it with fresh oil and this is a transmission flush for your transmission. You just saved $70 shop charge doing this. I say pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug because the last thing you want to do is pull the drain plug first and then find out the fill plug has welded itself and won't come out and now you can't fill the transmission. Fill plug first always.

Ware to fill transmission fluid


Well I guess you have figured out there is no dipstick. There are two plugs in the rear transmission pan. The bottom plug is for draining and the upper plug is for for filling and checking. Trans must be in park with the engine running and fluid should stream from hole when full.

Transmission warning light coming on,possible problems are low oil pressure or no oil pressure how do i check which one it is and fix it? Thankyou


If you have an Automatic transmission. Lift the hood. Locate the Transmission dip stick. Start the engine and let the engine warm up some. then check the fliud level on the dip stick. On a Manual Transmission, locate the transmission under the vehicle and the fill plug (upper) and drain plug (lower) on the transmission. Remove the fill plug (upper) and see if fluid runs out. If no fluid runs out, add recommeded transission fluid until the fluid starts running out, the replace fill plug..

My 1993 Chevy S10 Manual transmission makes a clicking sound when I shift. I have been told that the transmission needs fluid to be added. How and where do I add transmission fluid to a manual...


You have to check under the Vehicle and locate the Fluid Check/Fill hole and plug on the Side of the transmission. Check your owners manual for the proper Fluid Type to use.

Leaving a parked spot I noticed some red fluid under the middle front of the car. Someone it was transmission fluid.Also noticed that there was dried fluid same position in the garage where I park the car....


The red fluid is probably transmission fluid. Pick some up on your finger smell it and if possible compare it to known transmission fluid. You invariably have a leak. If you want to find the leak try this.

Locate a large piece of cardboard and place this under your cars engine compartment just after you garage it tonight. The cardboard will tell all on the leak location.

As far as adding trans fluid . . . you only need to ad fluid if it is low. The transmission is often refered to as a transaxle. Also transmission fluid is most commonly added via the transmission fluid dip stick hole via funnel. Be Careful not to over fill the transmission.

Good Luck

Where do i put the transmission oil


The transmission fluid is added through the same location where the dip stick is located, using a funnel add the transmission fluid, allow the vehicle to reach operating temperture, and check the level while the vehicle is running.
