SOURCE: need to change manual transmission fluid

pull the lower plug from the transmission, it will be on the bottom or the side on the bottom. replace the plug after draining and remove the fill plug wich is about half way up the side of the transmission. use 75w 90 gear oil in the trans.
good luck

It does'nt have to be OEM Jeep oil.
As long as the viscosity is the same you will not have a problem.

SOURCE: Refilling transmission fluid - manual 5-speed.

dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

If you have a manual transmission these are the check and fill plugs.

This is really hard, because the is no drain plug.
Lose the transmission bolts and let out some oil, this is a messy job.
Good luck.

Where is transmission fluid locted in a 1990 mazda protege


I would ask Standard or automatic since the vehicle came with both as an option but it really doesn't matter. The fluid is located in the Transmission itself. If you have an automatic there is a dip stick located near the firewall under the hood you can use to check the fluid level with. If it is a Standard or manual transmission you will have to locate the check fill plug on the transmission under the vehicle to check the fluid level with the end of your finger.

When I first start my 1995 Mazda Protege, it will not go into gear unless you let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes or longer


If you have an automatic transmission, check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid level is low, the transmission will not engage.

If you have a manual transmission, check the clutch fluid level. Look for a leaky master cylinder or slave cylinder.

When you go the autoparts store to buy it tell them you have a Mazda and they can look it up and tell you exactly which one, but probably Dextron 3 but confirm that.

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

Where do you install transmission fluid on a 1994 mazda protege


For a manual transmission, you have to remove the speedometer cable from the top of the transmission, including the single bolt that holds the speedometer cable housing. From there, you use a long tube and a funnel to pour the transmission fluid into the speedometer cable hole. Yes, quite inconvenient.
