You may have a trans with out a drain pulg. Get an foil turkey pan from the local grocer. Take out all the bolts but the 4 in the corners. The 2 at the front closest to the engine take loose about half way. Take out the other 2 one at the time. The fluid should start to run out in a over flow into your pan. Then remove the other bolt as the fluid slows down.

SOURCE: where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000

There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.

How to flush ford falcon 4,0L engine automatic 1996 model transmission


I'm not familiar with your vehicle, however the principle is the same for virtually all auto transmissions.
Get underneath your vehicle and look on the transmission fluid pan. Somewhere at the lowest point you will see a drain plug.

The plug may either be a nut or a recessed square, or even a hex recess.

Undo the drain plug and allow the transmission fluid to drain into a large plastic dish/container.

The link below shows you generic images of drain/filler plugs. It is not your vehicle:
auto transmission filler plug Google Search

When drained, replace the plug.

Then look for the filler plug. It will be higher up on the transmission case than the drain plug. Again, it may be a nut or a recessed square/hex.

You then have to use bottles of transmission fluid to refill the transmission. It can be messy ... The small bottles of transmission fluid - they have small tubes attached - can be very awkward to turn upside down when you're under the vehicle.

Alternatively, if you have a a long tube and a funnel you can use it to refill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. It can take a while to fill it as the fluid is slow to go down the tube.

Be prepared to get transmission fluid everywhere ...

Replace the same amount of fluid that came out. Start the car and move it through its range of gears. Check the fluid level.

It's not a difficult job. The link below is an easy guide:
How to Add Transmission Fluid
The job is worth doing. It will extend the life of your transmission. Most people never bother. Transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 20,000 miles.

How to change gearbox oil


gear + BOX
so is the transfer case, box. or the 5 speed stick box or?
what?
we drain it then fill it, to the mark.
on all gear boxes.
if A/T we RTM read the operators guide. for how to do it right,
most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

It's check at the transmission pan, there is two drain plugs, the lower one is to drain transmission fluid, the higher one is to check level, with engine running and in park remove up most drain plug if fluid start to come out level is ok, if no fluid coming out will need to add some till it start to come out.

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

How do i change the transmission fluid for my manual Nissan maxima 1996?i cant seem to find any pictures or diagram on how to change it.


manual transmissions should have a drain plug on or near the bottom of the transmission and a fill plug near the top of the transmission. Remove both plugs and drain gear lube into pan. Replace drain plug. Fill with recommended fluid through top hole and then replace that plug.

1996 ford station wagon LX ,transmission fluid over filled,only drives well when over drive is turned off. how do i drain some of the transmission fluid, and do you think thats the problem


Yes, too much fluid will give you overpressure in the tranny. If its a ford then you probably don't have a drain plug on the bottom of the tranny. You might have to remove several of the pan bolts on the aft edge of the tranny and let it drain that way.

I would like to change the transmision fluid in my 1996 s-10 pickup 4.3 eng any advice???


Unfortunately GM didn't put a drain plug in the transmission pans. You'll need a transmission service kit which will have the filter and new pan gasket. Put a large catch can under the pan, loosen all the bolts and crack the pan loose from the transmission and allow the fluid to leak out. Next remove all but two bolts letting the fluid drain as you go. With one hand on the bottom of the pan supporting it remove the last two bolts. Lower the pan down and drain the rest of the fluid out. The rest is pretty simple and hopefully less messy. Wiggle the transmission filter out, remove the grommet and replace it with the one supplied in the kit. Clean the pan, especially the magnet of metal shavings. Clean the gasket surfaces. Place the new gasket on the pan and thread a bolt in each corner into the gasket. Bolt the pan up and refill with transmission fluid.
