Look under the hood most transmission dipsticks have a red handle. Always check it when running on level ground thats how you check it.

If it's AUTOMATIC , then NO DIP STICK , as transmission fluid is put in, and capped , as it does not need replacing , like Engine oil.

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 plug to check the fluid level of a 5-speed manual transmission?


LEVEL CHECK There's no dipstick on the manual transaxle. Fluid must be checked by removing the oil filler bolt on the side of the transaxle. The bolt is located by the right axle at approximately 9 o'clock when viewed over the right fender. The vehicle must be level. If you're agile enough, the bolt may be removed with the car on the ground by working from the top. Some prefer to check the level from below. If this is the case, not only must the car be elevated and safely supported, it must be elevated and level, possibly requiring the installation of 4 jackstands. Just lifting the front yields an improper reading. Once level, remove the bolt. The fluid level should be just to the bottom of the hole and may be felt with a finger. In the unlikely event that the fluid is low, oil should be added through the inspection hole. Adding oil is tricky since it must be conducted into a horizontal opening. Creative use of funnels and tubing is encouraged. Also, a common kitchen turkey baster may provide some help with this. When the oil is up to the correct level, reinstall the bolt and tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Do not overtighten the nut; the penalty could be a very expensive transaxle case.

I want to check the transmission fluild in my 2000 Jetta 5 speed and can not find the dip stick to to this. I do not have an engine manuel.


on a manual transmission there is no dip stick. it is a sealed unit. in order to check the the level there is 2 bolts on the transmission. the one is on the front side that is your full level and place to add fluid. the second is on the front but closer the bottom. this one is to drain the fluid

Cannot find tranny oil fill plug for 1995 ford Escort


LEVEL CHECK -manual transmission The vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear), which is located on the transaxle, serves as the manual transaxle's dipstick.
  1. Park the car on a level surface, turn the engine OFF and apply the parking brake.
  2. Locate the speedometer cable assembly where it enters the transaxle.
  3. Unplug the electrical connection from the vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear).
  4. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speed sensor.
  5. Wipe the area around the speed sensor with a clean rag, then loosen the speed sensor retaining bolt.
  6. Gently pry the speed sensor from the transaxle. Fig. 1: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.8L engine 90981g14.gif
    Fig. 2: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.9L and 2.0L engines 90981g15.gif

  7. Check the condition of the speed sensor O-ring and replace it if it is damaged.
  8. Check the fluid level on the speed sensor as illustrated.
  9. If the level is low, place a funnel in the speed sensor hole.
  10. Add the specified fluid to the transaxle until the FULL level is reached. Do not overfill the transaxle.
  11. Install the speed sensor and tighten the retaining bolt to 69–104 inch lbs. (8–12 Nm).
  12. Connect the speedometer cable.
  13. Engage the speed sensor electrical connection. Fig. 3: If necessary, add transmission fluid through a funnel into the speed sensor opening 90981g16.gif

TYPE OF TRANSMISSION FLUID NEEDED FOR 97 CHEVY CAVALIER AND HOW MUCH


You can use Dexron II or Dexron III, but you can also use the improved Dexron VI which replaces both the afore mentioned fluids. Use Dexron VI as it is an improvment. Caution: Do not overfill. Check fluid level according to the instructions in your owner's manual and make sure the car is parked on a level surface or you will get a false reading.

How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine


Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

Best of luck :)
