Usually in the fuse box kick plate next to driver's lower footwell or passenger side, depending on which country you're in.

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).

I have a Toyota Celica 1995 2.2 L manual transmission when the engine is "hot' or it has been running for a while, is hard to Go into 2, downshift from 3 to 2 also sometimes struggles to go into rever

The tranny is probably on the way out. The synchronizers are what synchonize the spinning shafts and gears inside the tranny by braking and trying to match the speed of one shaft to another. If they are worn, they will have trouble.Also check the oil level on the old tranny. You might find it is low on oil and you might be able to buy some time. You could try draining the transmission when it is warm. Look at the oil and if it is loaded with a metallic sheen or worse: with particles, the tranny is toast and not worth repairing so just have a good used low mile tranny put in. Pretty cheap job and easy with a 4 cyl engine. As a last desperation, you might try putting in some synthetic tranny oil like amsoil or Royal purple. But if the synchros are shot, so is the tranny. Make sure you drain the junkyard tranny to check for particles before throwing it in. If it is full of metal,take it back. On second thought, put that synthetic tranny oil in the junkyard tranny. Tranny oil should be changed very 50 to 100 K and if you or someone grinds gears, even more often!

Can you tell me how to chech tramission fuild where it is located

I know they made some changes in 95, but I am not sure about the tranny dipstick. The 94 had the dipstick on the passenger side of the engine, towards the rear, the oil stick sits right in front of it. You check the fluid hot, while running, in park. and you fill it right there too, with along neck funnel. Now, if you don't have the dipstick, then they changed that year, there are 2 plugs on the right side of the tranny, crawl under there and find one up, one down, the bottom one is level and the top is fill. Pull the bottom one out, while cold, not running. if oil seeps out, it is full, if no oil seeps out, pull the top plug and fill with the right fluid till it seeps out the bottom hole, I use 90 weight gear oil top on the tranny fluid bottle and squeeze right in there, then plug them back up. Hope this helps.

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil

  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

Cannot locate position in motor to replace gear box oil; in 1993 5 gear manual toyota celica

  • You don't have a dip stick on this car. You have to go underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two plugs, one on top of the other. The one on top is the fill. The one on the bottom is the drain plug.

  1. To fill it you need a funnel with a hose on it.
  2. Remove the fill plug (top) and fill the transmission just until the gear lube barely seeps out and replug it.
  3. This is now the properly filled.
  4. Plug the fill hole back up.

  1. If you get a container and put it under the drain plug on the transmission and pull the top fill plug FIRST and then the bottom drain plug and let all the gear lube run out.
  2. Now plug the drain hole and fill the transmission till it seeps out.
  3. Now plug the fill hole.
  4. You just did a transmission flush on your vehicle and saved yourself $75usd shop charge.

I am trying to fill my transmission fluid on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 with a 5 speed manual transmission-where is the fill hole located? What fluid should I use? Is Dextron II ok?

A 5-speed Nissan Pathfinder uses a different type of transmission fluid from an automatic; therefore Dexron II is NOT okay. This vehicle uses "gear oil" --- specifically 75W-90 GL-4 if you have low mileage. 80W-90 or 85W-140 can be used if you are up there in mileage (closing in on 200K?).

This type of service needs to be performed from underneath the vehicle.

If you have a set of ramps, now would be a good time to get them out of the tool shed. Exercise care in driving up the ramps as they can be tricky with stick shift vehicles. Once on the ramp, put wheel chocks on the rear wheels, put the e-brake on, and if possible, keep it in gear (I use reverse).

Even without ramps, there is sufficient ground clearance from this SUV for you to check your transmission fluid. But then again, the more working room, the better.

On the transmission housing, you will find two plugs. One is at the bottom (drain plug), and one is higher up on the driver's side (fill plug). If you wish to add gear oil, simply open up the fill plug on the upper driver's side. If gear oil starts to seep out, don't bother adding any --- it's full. If no fluid comes out, stick your pinky in the hole and try to reach down and see if you can touch the top of the fluid level. Top it up, then. Gear oil usually comes in quart containers that have a long, pointed tip that allows you to "squirt" the stuff into the fill hole. Convenient, no? If the fluid level is so low that you can't even touch it, you might want to consider draining what's left (why add new gear oil to old sludgy gear oil? Otherwise, fill it up until it starts to seep out of the hole; then screw the fill plug back in.

I hope this helps; take care of your SUV.

How do i check the transmission fluid?

If its a manual transmission it should have a drain and a fill pug on the side of the tranny. usually u should take the top drain plug out n if any oil comes out the the oil level is fine if not add more. If the transmission is automatic then it should have a dipstick on the tranny itself.(dont confuse it with the engine oil dipstick)

How to check the transmission fluid and fill it up if low there is no dip stick for it

If this is an auto tranny the dipstick is located against the firewall just to the passenger side of the auto. If this is a standard transmission it does not have a dispstick but a plug on the side of the transmission. You remove the plug and the gear oil should be level with the hole. If not use a squeeze bottle to put 85w to 90w gear oil into the tranny.

Where do you check transmission fluid 1995 pontiac firebird manual transmission 3.4 liter

Actually, on the manual tranny its more like a thin grease. There is a plug located on the side of the transmission, When you remove the plug, you should be able to stick your pinky in the hole and get a little grease on your finger. The fill line is to the bottom of the plug.
