So you have a manual and you want to change the gear box oil right??? May i ask how many miles this car has on it?? You really hardly ever need to change gearbox oil. Check this oil by taking the plug out of you transmission. If this oil is clean and has a brand new look to it do not change it. The only time these oils really need to be completely changed is when the car has been in high water or the gear box has been rebuilt so for your peace of mind if you just have general wear on this car, you probably are just throwing money down a crawdad hole ha ha

When its cold it seems to slip out of gear rather than change to 3rd. aafter its warm it seems to run like a top


It will be good to have the gear box oil changed to confirm that the oil within is overused.
If the oil change solves the issue , then have the oil changed once again after the car runs for few months so that the gear box lubrication comes good.
if not the gear box has to be opened to check for faulty links or notches.

Have just bought a 1988 Nissan Bluebird, need to know if the engine and gear box oil are seperate if so where do you change the gear box oil?


there no automotive engines that share same oil with transmission
on your gear box there should be two plugs one in about middle and one near bottom the bottom one is your drain and the top one is your fill
