Manual transmissions have no dip stick like old A/T transmissions had, get an operators guide see there is not one.
it's just like all manual boxes. it has 2 plugs (case)
one for drain. and side plug for fill and level checks.
try youtube for 1000's of examples.

There would be a plug in the side of the trans itself. Make sure car is on level ground and open plug on side and if fluid is lower than hole add until it just starts to ooozz out then re-install plug your done. lets not forget to look in owners manual to make sure what type/grade fluid also.

I had a 1998 Metro with a manual transmission and there was no dipstick to check fluid. I don't believe you have one, either.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

SOURCE: Cant find a dipstick to check transmission fluid

Sometimes like in a BMW there is no dipstick and the fluid may be checked by a cylinder container much like the brake fluid resevoire. It would have a dipstick in the cap.

The dipstick has a black plastic handle in the shape of ring of about 1 inch in diameter. It is located on the left side of the engine (looking from front) behind the spark plugs. Best visible from the passenger side fender location (start looking from the left part of the transmission , the black handle clearly stands out on the white metal).

  • This care does not have a dipstick but can easily be checked at home.

  1. 1. Warm the car up to running temperature.
  2. 2. Park it on a level surface.
  3. 3. Leave the car running and set the emergency /parking brake. Also set bricks in front and behind the wheels.
  4. 4. Look on the passenger side of the transmission (underneath the car)
  5. 5. You will see a 10mm bolt a little bit inward from the right axle on the transmission itself.
  6. 6. Have a drain pan ready and pull that bolt.
  7. 7. If fluid comes out it is full.
  8. 8. If no fluid comes out then add ATF III in the fill port on top of the transmission until the fluid just barely seeps out of that hole you removed the bolt from.
  9. 9. This port is on top of the transmission (under the hood) and is usually red or black in color.
  10. 10. The transmission is now full and ready to go.
  • Hope this helps.

1996 geo metro ****** problem wont move unless it is reved up real hi andthen it only moves alittle bit

Had the same problem with ours. If you're not mechanically inclined, this is a total job for a qualified mechanic. Assuming this is an automatic transmission, first thing I would check is the transmission dipstick. If you see any signs of metallic particles, then chances are your transmission is ruined, and look for about a $1000 - $2000 repair bill. It could also be the torque converter, which is a cheaper fix, but still kinda pricey.

Specifically, you remove the transmission dipstick and use a narrow funnel to pour transmission fluid in the transmission till it is full. Remember to check your fluid level after the transmission is warmed up, and the car is running, gearshift in Park.

O.K,first don't drive the car with that light on unless absolutely neccessary(as in if you need to get somewhere safe or something).Second,yes you can add oil, 5W30,will be fine (does not matter which brand)but you need to make sure you don't add too much.Look for the oil dipstick under the hood to check the level of oil.There will be some kind of mark on the dipstick to show you where the level shhould be, down towards the end tip of the dipstick.There may be 2 dipsticks under the hood,1 for oil and 1 for transmission fluid so make sure yourr looking at the right one.Hope this helps.good luck.

Wheni drive Geo Metro 1997 over 1 hour the transmission does not work.

Does your car have an automatic transmission? If so start by checking the fluid level. There will be a dipstick in engine compartment that is for the transmission. This you will have to do by having the engine running and transmission in park. Pull dipstick out and check were the reading is on the dipstick. If it is low add transmission fluid. Note: Check owners manual for the correct type of fluid that should be used for your cars transmission. I have included a link that will help you with doing this procedure.
If this doesn't help there are bigger problems going on inside the transmission. And if your car is using transmission oil you should get the leak checked out. I hope hope that this is helpful.

Which tank is the transmission fluid tank in my 96 honda odyssey

Transmissions do use a tank, they hold the fluid in the pan under the transmission. Find your transmission dipstick (usually near the firewall) - it is a long dipstick that reaches the level in the pan.

Check your owners manual for dipstick location and how to check your fluid - most transmission have to be checked when the vehicle is hot, engine running and the transmission in neutral.
