If you can check the transmission fluid with the dipstick, you just found the filler hole! Yep, pour it in thru that hole. It's alot of fun!

2000 caliver leaking out of vent hole on transaxle changed filter . filled transaxle to top of hole leaking out of vent.also put new oring on cap.


This sounds like there is too much transmission fluid that was added. On the passenger side on the transmission has a plug about 2 inches above the transmission pan.The correct fluid is guaged by removing this plug and checking to see if fluid barely comes out while vehicle is running and is up to operating temperature.When the fluid is just barely coming out this hole That is when you reinstall the plug and the fluid level is adequate. If too much fluid was added would remove this plug and let fluid drain out for a bit then put the plug backa nd let the trans fluid heat up and pull that plug back out.

How can i put transmission oil in a izuzu trooper


At transmission pan, there will be two drain plugs, the up most drain plug is where you fill it and check level, to check level, with engine running and in park, unscrew up most plug on transmission pan, if fluid come's out, level is good, if no fluid come's out need to add transmission fluid in that drain plug.

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 you check the transmission fluid level


It basically has a sealed transmission. Is the transmission showing any signs of leaking? The general rule of thumb is if the transmission is showing no signs of leaking, the fluid is good for 100k miles.

But, if you want to check the transmission fluid, put the car on jack stands so that it is level. On the drivers side of the transmission, about 2/3s of the way up, you will find a 15mm plug. Remove that plug slowly. If no fluid comes out, put your finger in the hole to see if the fluid is right at the bottom of the level of the plug hole. If so, it's good. Some fluid may trickle out when you remove the plug.

If the level is low and you need to top it off, you will find a red cap under the brake master cylinder under the hood. That is the fill location. Leave the plug out of the transmission, put a pan under it, and slowly fill from the engine bay until it starts to leak out of the transmission plug. Replace plug and you are done.

Second gear grinds?????????????


There Should Be A Plug On The Side Of The Transmission. You'll See The Head Of A Bolt On The Side Toward Top, Or Middle. One On Very Bottom Is The Drain. Now Just Look For Another Similar Plug. Make Sure That Year And Model Doesn't Take Automatic Transmission Fluid. If It Doesn't Go Away. Time To Have Rebuilt. Syncro's Are Going. Good Luck

WHERE TO PUT THE TRANSMISSION OIL


you do not have a dip stick.

960e9f1.gif
Item Part Number Description 1 — Fluid fill plug (bench) 2 — Fluid level 3 — Fluid drain plug (large) 4 — Fluid level and fill plug (small) 5 — Fluid level tube

  1. NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    With the transmission in the PARK position and the engine running, use a 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  2. Allow the fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. When the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip, it is at the correct level.
  3. If no fluid comes out of the hole, fluid will need to be added. Continue with this procedure.
  4. Install the special tool into the pan.
