The transmission doesn't have a dipstick, on the rh side(transmission side) the fill and drain plugs are located where the axle is inserted into the transmission usually the fill plug is opened with a 17mm wrench and the drain plug is opened with a 3/8 ratchet(fits perfectly into the square hole. and you fill it up until it runs out of the fill hole. you could consult your manual for the proper type. honda used to use motor oil 5w30, 10w30, but they have since replaced the use of those fluids with ther own manual trans fluid which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 us a quart(at least in my neighborhood) it holds like 2+1/2 qts us. the problem that you have sounds like a worn out clutch, which typically slips in the higher gears, also if your model has an egr valve that could cause the car to surge between 1400-2500 rpm which could feel like "slippage" usually the egr valves don't go bad but the control solonoids do.
i hope that this helps

4x4 transmission 1992 Isuzu 4x4 5 speed, clutch makes a grinding noise when the clutch pedal is depressed and stops when in gear & all gears. goes awat after a few miles of driving. Sound is...

nothing wrong with the clutch
indicates that the throw out bearing is dry and failing
as it goes after a few minutes of driving , it also indicates that there is residual pressure in the clutch system keeping the fingers in contact with the bearing which indicates a clutch master cylinder compensating port blocking up
If the clutch master cylinder has not been replaced in the last 5 years , it is suggested to replace that before you get a slipping clutch symptom

5 speed manuel rpm goes up but dont wanna go

I understand that your engine accelerates fine to high RPM's but your car won't move. Since it is a manual transmission car, the problem may be in a slipping clutch. Probably your clutch is worn and slips.
You might need to replace your clutch.

My truck has the 5 speed and it starting to **** and slip while im giving it gas is this the clutch or the transmission?

It's the clutch that is slipping. New clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing is what's needed-usually comes in a package as a full clutch replacement.

Transmission slipping in second and thrid gears what can i do without replacing transmission?

Sounds like the clutches are worn , Try a complete flush, (all the fluid) and add a can of BG transmission additive. If this doesnt work you probably need a rebuild.

Looking to buy a 1988 Honda CRX HF. Automatic Transmission. I would like to do a 5 speed swap on it. What is needed, how hard would it be, and what would it end up costing me?

-5 Speed Transmission

-Clutch/Pressure plate/Flywheel/Hardware

-Clutch cable

-Manual pedal assembly with same options as your car (Cruise control2_bing.gif for example)

-Front, side, and rear transmission mount brackets from 5 speed car, and the actual mount for the rear (Regardless of what people say, it is not needed to drop the rear x-member to do this rear mount, but if you don't have a decent set of tools, you may have to do this to get to the rear bolt.)

-Manual axles. I think auto axles will work.

-5 speed throttle cable to match the the 5 speed pedal assembly

-Auto speedo cable will work.

-Connect the 2 larger black wires that go to the shift position switch in the automatic. These wires are for the starter. In the auto car, they are only connected when the car is in nuetral or park. Solder these two wires together and heat shrink. Use a **** connector if you want to just ghetto rig it together.

-You will get a code 19 and a "check engine light". This is for the torque converter lock up solenoid on the PS9 auto ECU (For my D16A6 Motor anyway, the 1.5 may have a different auto ECU). The car will still run and drive fine, but getting the manual ECU for you car, and cutting off the auto wiring from the harness will eliminate this issue.

-You will need to ground the Green/White wire from the shift indicator switch, this indicates that the car is in "park", and will allow you to remove the ignition key. The alternative is to swap to the 5 speed ignition switch, but you may not want to end up having separate ignition, and door keys if your car currently uses one key.

I have a HF 5 Speed ecu and a few other parts to if you need them

Price is hard to tell because of price of parts and places vary to do these swaps. Shops around here will covert a auto to manual for anywhere from 500-800 bucks labor only.

5 speed transmission seems to be slipping

You can test your clutch, by putting on the parking brake, start car, put vehicle in 5th and release the clutch slowly. If the car stalls, it is likely ok. if it does not stall then your clutch is worn and requires replacement. It sounds like you have maybe an oil leak possibly from the front seal of the transmission, which is leaking onto the clutch plate. this will also require replacement of the clutch and the front seal. also while it is out check the flywheel is not damaged. This could have a dual mass flywheel which are also prone to failure giving clutch problems.

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
