    yes it is a manual transmission. and on what side of the transmission will the plug be on? and can the fluid level have something to do with my clutch not engaging at all?

I gather you are saying you have a manual trans? Okay! you have a plug somewhere on the transmission about half way fron the bottom to the top.It could be square six sided or a large inverted plug of the same. Remove this plug stick your finger in the hole, you should get some fluid on your finger if it is full.

    You will have to look for the plug,I don't know what side it is on.And no the fluid does not have anything to do with the clutch,The fluid keeps the transmission from burning up while it is turning going down the road. You may need an adjustment on your clutch if there is some left.or you might be in need of a new clutch.

My Mitsubishi Lancer 2002.I have a problem with the Transmission its slips when i accelerate the engine power.

Do you have a manual or automatic transmission?

Autimatic transmission: I would start first by checking the fluid level. I'm not familiar with your exact transmission, but for most cars, you should check the level with the engine running. While you're checking the fluid level (assuming it is full) check the color and smell of the fluid. It should not look or smell burned. If it does, take it in to a transmission shop to have it checked out.

Manual Transmission: This could be a couple different things but more than likely your clitch is worn out or in need of adjustment.

In both instances, either manual or automatic, you should take the car in to a transmission shop to have it fixed before it gets worse and costs more to repair.

Where do I add the transmission fluid on a 2002 Mitshubshi Lancer?

You add the automatic transmission fluid through the dipstick/level check hole ( on the transmission) using a long skinny funnel. Be sure to only use Diamond ATF SP III or an equivalent. Mitsubishi transmissions require regular fluid changes (every 30, 000 to 35,000 miles) with the correct fluid or they will not shift correctly.

I need to know what type of transmission fluid to use when i change it in my 02 lancer. It is a manual transmission

Even though it's a manual trans it probably takes automatic trans fluid. It should tell you in the owners manual, if they only give you the Mitsubishi part number a auto parts store should be able to tell what that number crosses to.

you can't put the transmission fluid in yourself on an auto or manual transmission for a 2002 lancer es. It has to be injected into the transmission through a nipple that is on the transmission.
