Where do I fill the gearbox oil

Hi there,
Most transmissions (gearbox) have their fluid flushed by disconnecting the cooling lines and reconnecting to bypass reservoirs of new fluid. If you're adding only to top up, you can do so with a funnel in the fluid level dip stick port.

How to fill gearbox with oil

  • 1

    Locate the fill plug. This is typically on the top of the gearbox. If you are having problems locating it, follow the speedometer cable down to where it connects to the transmission; the fill plug will be near the cable.

  • 2

    Remove the fill plug.

  • 3

    Place a clean funnel in the fill hole and fill the gearbox with gear oil. Check your vehicle specifications to see how much is needed. Re-install the fill plug when done, hand-tighten and then torque the plug down with a socket wrench one turn.

Transmission fluid smells burnt, trouble engaging gears

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

How do you refill transmission fluid? Fluid was drained accidentally thinking it was oil drain plug....

You will need a large mechanics seringe.There will be filling plug above the drain plug .May be on front or the rear of your gearbox.
With the seringe **** up the fluid from a container and insert in the filling hole.Once the gearbox is full ,you will see fluid coming out of the filling hole.Thats the level and job done.
