In a manual transmission you have a plug on the side of the case. It will or could be on ether side about half way up. It can be a square drive or hex plug to remove it. Take the plug out and stick your small finger inside if you can touch fluid it is ok. You add fluid here also. You have to get under the car to access this plug, so be careful under there. Some of the plugs get tight with age. Get the best fitting tool you can find to try and loosen. If you do not or have not ever noticed a leak at your transmission, you do not need fluid, it does not consume fluid. Hope this helps...

The drain plug is on the bottom of the box it should be a size 24mm or 15/16inch the filler plug is on the side of the gear box fill that up until you have fluid coming out. for manual transmission ya wanna use VMX80 or something to that equivalent which is a gear oil. Most commonly used for manual transmissions.

Where do you add transmission fluid to a 96 ford thunderbird


look around near the firewall for another 'dip-stick', similar to your oil dip-stick, you check and add fluid into the same place. and you will want to check the fluid level when the engine is warmed up, and running. (unlike checking the oil) also, a funnel is recommended (dont want to spill fluid around) if you see the need to add fluid

Where to add gear oil to manual 2002 kia sportage


For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid. It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.

Where do you put the gear fluid in the 96 accord?


Hi!!

If you mean transmission fluid? It goes in the same place where your dip stick goes into. You need a small end, long funnel.

Take Transmission Dip Stick out, insert funnel and add manufactured recommended fluid as nedded. DO NOT OVERFILL

Manual Transmission stick jammed after BRAKE Light ON for a day. 2002 Kia Sportage ONLY drives in 4th gear. Mechanic says Brake Fluid in Kia Sportage Lubes and Cools Manual Transmission? Might have gone...


Need more info on what the trans is doing , or not doing. No chance that brake fluid cools or lubes your transmission. The only possible connection is that your clutch is hydraulic which would use brake fluid , but two totaly different systems. Does your clutch feel funny?

Where the plug for tranny on 96' jetta is located?


On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.

I have a 98 honda passport that i need to put transmission fluid in but i need a diagram to make sure i'm putting it in the rite whole


(Duplicate Question = Duplicate Answer)

If you have an automatic transmission, you should take it to a mechanic or at least purchase the special fluid temperature gauge needed to do it right. You add fluid through the overfill screw opening found on the transmission fluid pan (there is no dipstick or underhood component on the 96' and later models). It should be located in one corner of the pan; there's also a drain plug is more toward the middle. Never open the overfill screw with the engine stopped - it should always be running and warm.

Again I say: beg, borrow, buy, or steal a temperature gauge if you have an automatic. Add the new fluid with a small pump or syringe only when the gauge reads between 90 and 135 degrees F.

For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.

How do you put in transmission fluid?


Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.
