Question about 1997 Dodge Avenger
I just bought a 1997 Dodge Avenger about a month ago. It is a stick. Now the car won't go into 1st gear and it struggles into reverse. Could this be low fluid? If so, how do you check it? Can't find a dip stick for it.
If there is no dipstick, then there will be a plug on the side of the transmission that you remove and put your finger in to feel the lever of fluid. (I hate this style personally, if ur trani is too full of fluid it drains out through this level checking hole) if its too low ... you don't know how low so add until fluid just begins to drip out, or if you can see into the hole, fill until fluid gets to the rim.
Can you shift into 2nd? 3rd? etc. if you can shift into those easily then fluid is probably not the cause.
It could be a worn clutch, worn out shift forks, damaged teeth on gears. there are several more, if this does not solve it let me know and give as many details as you can to help diagnosis.
