I dont know how to change my transmission fluid on a nissan versa 2007.


The really cool thing about these vehicles is that if you perform regular scheduled fluid maintenence, you only have to remove the transmission drain plug. Located on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan, simply remove the drain plug, allowing fluid to drain and reinstall plig. Add 2.5qts of mfr recommended transmission fluid as an initial fill. Start vehicle and go shift through all the gears while sitting still. Put vehicle in park. Top off fluid as necessary.

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.

How do i put fluid in the transmission there is no


On the passenger side of the transmission, there is a fill plug and a drain plug. The fill will be the upper plug and it's the one you use to check to make sure you have the right amount of transmission fluid in your transmission. Manual Transmission, NV3500..........2 liters Manual Transmission, NV1500..........2.7 liters

Undo the plug with a wrench and if the transmission trickles out, your good to go. If there is no fluid trickling out, top it off and place the plug back in and tighten to (Manual Transmission NV1500 Fill Plug 17 ft/lbs) or (Manual Transmission NV3500 Fill Plug 44 ft/lbs)
Thank you for using fixya and be safe. Drain Plug 44 ft/lbs Drain Plug 27 ft/lbs

Where do i put transmission fluid in a 2002 Isuzu rodeo


As far as I have found the 02 Isuzu Rodeo does not have a transmission fluid dipstick you have to in fact go under your vehicle to check, change and fill your transmission fluid. Transmission fluid level: You will have two plugs facing downward on the larger trans pan. The plug higher up on the pan is the fill/level check (stamped/recessed into the rear right corner of pan). ATF should just dribble from this plug on a hot, idling truck, in neutral on a level surface. The lower one is the drain. The one at the back of the pan in a recess is the filler. You need a hand pump or something similar to fill it to overflowing then top it off with the engine running. Make sure you shift through the gears a couple of times when topping off.

Fill tube for the transmission location


Hahaha..! Thats a funny response, but not a solution.

Assuming you're talking about the automatic transmission, there is no fill tube for your transmission. To fill the transmission, check the fluid level, or top off the fluid level, you will need a few different (non-traditional) tools. You will need some way to pump fluid up into the transmission from below due to the fill port being on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan. A bottle of transmission fluid (Dextron III) and a screw on fill tube from WalMart or Autozone can be used to fill the transmission with fluid.

Service to this transmission can be a fairly messy task. Operating temperature must be attained prior to fluid level adjustment. Once operating temperature has been achieved, two drain plugs should be located on the main transmission fluid pan. One plug is positioned vertically higher than the other. With the engine idling, remove the higher plug. When this plug is removed, fluid shouldn't flow from the hole profusely. If it does, then that's an idication that the unit is overfilled. If no fluid flows from the hole at all, then it may be an indication of a low fluid level. Use the desired devised method to pump fluid into the higher plug hole until fluid begins to leak from the plug hole. Once this occurs, then the plug must quickly be reinstalled.

It's messy and inconvenient; I know. Thank you to the General for the transmission and adventures with hot trans. fluid. Gee.., another good example of why Toyota passed ya up

I cant figure out how to check my transmission oil on my 89 ford tempo,


Manual or automatic? If it is automatic it should have a dipstick (like the oil dipstick) that will let you check it. It will most likely be red and if I remember correctly on the passenger side of the car. If it is a manual checking your transmission isn't so easy. I've heard it said that your transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 50,000 miles or so but if it is still red and you're not having problems with it you should leave it alone (in my experience changing it a lot of times will just cause problems). If it is manual the transmission has two plugs on the side of the transmission (passenger side if I remember correctly). They both have a square insert in the middle of them that is the perfect size for the end of a regular size socket wrench. The plug on top is the "fill plug" and the one below is the "drain plug". First you remove the drain plug and let the fluid drain completely and be sure to clean the plug before putting back in. It should be magnetic to collect metal shavings that have ground up in the transmission. Once the transmission has been drained and the drain plug inserted back in. Remove the "fill plug" and use a fluid transfer pump to pump the new  transmission fluid from your container up into your transmission. When fluid starts to overflow from the fill plug you know the transmission is full and you can now put the fill plug back in. Be sure to be clean and check for any leaks around the transmission. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need some more help. I probably made the process of changing your transmission fluid seem complicated but it really isn't so don't worry. Good luck!

Second gear grinds?????????????


There Should Be A Plug On The Side Of The Transmission. You'll See The Head Of A Bolt On The Side Toward Top, Or Middle. One On Very Bottom Is The Drain. Now Just Look For Another Similar Plug. Make Sure That Year And Model Doesn't Take Automatic Transmission Fluid. If It Doesn't Go Away. Time To Have Rebuilt. Syncro's Are Going. Good Luck

Transmission


Auto transmitions heve a fill tube in the rear of the engine compartment that are usually hidden by hoses. Manual tranmitions do not have a fill tube and have to be filled under the vehicle. There are two plugs. one will be higher than the other. You take out the top one and put your finger in the hole and see if you feel fluid. You fill it up until it starts to come out of the hole and hurry up and put the plug back in.( Be sure theat you put in the proper fluid)

How do you put in transmission fluid?


Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.
