HI STEVE, FLUID LEVEL IS CHECKED BY SPEEDO SENSOR,HAVE TO PULL IT OUT AND IT HAS LIKE A DIPSTICK ON IT,ITS BURIED BY RIGHT HALFSHAFT ON TOP OF TRANSMISSION. ALSO YOUR SHIFTER IS CONTROLLED BY LINKAGE,SEE IF IT CAME LOOSE ON TRANSMISSION AND IS CLUTCH GOOD? YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DISCONNECT LINKAGE AND MANUALLY TAKE OUT OF 5TH AND ISOLATE THE PROBLEM.

I have a 1992 mazda 626 5 speed manual and the clutch is stuck down what do i check


You will need to check the transmission fluid. There is a dip stick for the trans just under your breather box on the driver side of the car. Start your car and let it warm up before checking the trans fluid. It should show on the stick. It should be the upper mark on the stick. If it is touching it then the fluid is ok and if not you will need to add some fluid.

Does a 5 speed manuel transmission use transmisson fluid and where is the dip stick to check the fluid?


Manual transmissions use gear oil, not automatic transmission fluid.
There will be a filler plug on the side of the gearbox. The gear oil should be filled up to the very bottom of the filler plug hole.

Where is the automatic transmission dipstick located on a 89 ford escort and why does the gear shift act in its starting, whether or not? ( moving it)


Dip stick comes out of dip stick tube coming from transmission (side of trans) Look real hard on the side of the transmission behind the engine you will see it.

The second issue sounds like a neutral safety switch.

Cant find where to add trans fluid on 97 jetta 5 speed


A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.

If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.

Hi there,

Jetta's 2006 carry sealed gear box. There is no dip stick to check the transmission fluid. Per manufacturer, transmission fluid requires to change unless there is any issue with transmission. I hope this helps.

How do I check automatic trans fluid in a 1997 Honda Civic? In the past I've always check fluid with the car idleing in park at normal operating temperature. But the Honda dealer is telling me to check it...


That's because you don't understand how a Honda trans works. Think of it as an automatic manual trans, that is Honda's trans are the only one's where all the gears are constantly meshed. When a Honda trans shifts, it engages that specific gear. All the gears are meshed, a Honda trans engages a clutch pack which gives power through that specific meshed gear, just as you would if you were shifting a manual trans. Now since all the gears are constanly meshed, they are inmersed in trans fluid, If you check it while it is running, It will show less, plus the fact on some Honda models the gears are right next to the dip stick and if your not careful, the dip stick can get pulled into the gears and destroy the trans.

Can't get fluid back into the manual transmission on a 95 escort


where are you trying to put the oil back in as the manual trans does not have a dip stick. on the lower front side there is a filler/level plug. you will need an allen key to remove it. you will need a small plastic bottle with a flexy plastic pipe to put the oil in. Keep topping up until the oil runs back out of the filler hole

Manual Transmission fluid for Ford Escort ZX2


I know this sounds crazy according to Ford:

You can use-
Motorcraft MERCON Multi-Purpose (ATF) Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX MERCON® Alternative Transaxle Fluid - SAE 75W90 Gear Oil F32Z-19C547-MA API GL-4
You are seeing that right, one instance they call for 75W90 and the other it is ATF. It is ok to run either, 75W90 will give you smoother shifts and less noise.

This transmission is filled through the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) hole.
