SOURCE: how do you change the manual transmission fluid in


In a manual car you do not change or flush the transmission fluid. the only fluid you change is the gear oil for the clutch. The manual transmissions do not have the ability to be flushed or changed as it does not have the same internals as an automatic transmission

SOURCE: 2005 aveo got code on transmishion p 0300 p 0700 and p1781

It sounds like you have a problem with your crank sensor or cam sensor!! You will have to take to a dealer that knows how to learn the crank sensore.. Yes it has to be learned into the computer.

Also there was a sevice bulletn on mising being that the intake valves needed to be replaced and reseated.

The transmission code is being sent because of the randome missing.. so it will not upshift into I think 4th (lockup). and the other is sent to torque because of the random miss also..

Solution!!!!!!! take to dealer and have them relearn crank sensor!!!

Hope this helps

SOURCE: how to check manual transmission fluid level on

oh the side of your transmission, above the halfway point, there will be a plug that you can open. (don't open the plug on the bottom of the transmission as that's the drain plug). When you open the plug, some fluid should leak out meaning it's at the right level. If nothing leaks out, pour some fluid in until it starts to run out and then replace the plug.

SOURCE: How do I remove fuse for clock/radio '05 Aveo

I have looked and looked for this myself. I belive since one of the wires runs to the ecu. for the acc power it is branched off of some other . If you need a good reliable place to pull power. Use the power windows Breaker / fuse its on the passanger side it is on acc power for the key.
The other Direct battery feed for the radio is protected in the left fuse box on the drivers side.

SOURCE: How to drain and put new transmission oil on my

Get a drill driven pump from an auto parts store to **** the fluid out of the transmission's fluid level dip stick. Then add fluid through the same hole to fill until the full level is found on the dipstick.

Manual Transmission Lubricant Manny manual transmissions use gear oil viscosity of about SAE 80W or 90 grade. This is a gear oil viscosity and has nothing to do with motor oil viscosity. For instance, SAE 80W gear oil can have the same viscosity characteristics as SAE 40 or 50 motor oil. However, not all-manual transmissions use gear oil. For years, Chrysler Corporation specified the use of automatic transmission fluid in their manual transmission vehicles. Some transaxles, both foreign and domestic, use either ATF or engine oil to lubricate the transmission. For this reason, it is always best to consult your owner's manual or your dealer if you are unsure about what sort of lubricant to use in your manual transmission.

Find the transmission fill cap and remove as much fluid as possible using a drill operated pump or a hand pump.

Then, add gear lubricant as required until full using a funnel.

Sometimes there is no fill dipstick or conventional fill cap, but must remove the speedometer gear to get at the fluid.

Where is the dipstick for transmission fluid on Aveo 5 2008 manual transmission?

I've never seen a manual transmission with a dipstick. Even most modern automatic transmissions are sealed units designed to go 200k+ miles without a fluid change. Dipsticks are pretty much a thing of the past.

Manual transmissions almost always have two plugs on a side somewhere... One at the bottom to drain, and another 4 to 6 inches above it to fill. You add fluid until it just starts to dribble out of the fill-hole and put the plug back in. If your manual tranny uses ATF like my T-56 does, I find it easiest to drill a hole in the cap on the fluid bottle and add a grommet from a hardware store and stick in a 3' length of tubing. Now you have a squeeze-bottle making it easy to fill through an inconveniently placed hole in a hard-to-reach place.

When it rains my 2005 chevy aveo floor fills up with water. I have cleaned out all vents and checked for leaks - but can find nothing. Please help me.

The waterchannels down from the roof to each side of the vehicle through the inside of the fenders, even though the vents are clear the channels to divert the water may be plugged. Look behind the fender (sounds impossible, but open the doors and look where the hinges are, you should be able to see somewhat behind the fenders, check for debris lodged within the cavity behind the fender, water can fill up and run back into the interior of the vehicle. A leaking door seal will also allow water to seep into the interior.

Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?

There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.
