1987 Cabriolet Transmission fluid

Hello,
I just recently purchased an 87 Cabriolet and have had to replace the transmission. My boyfriend is a mechanic and put the new tranny in but we don't know how much fluid to put in it. Please let us know so that we can get this little beauty on the road again.

Thanks,
Erin

87 buick century won't shift out of first


The first thing is to check the transmission fluid level, then check the vacuum modulator located out on the side of the transmission, and be certain that the vacuum line is connected to the vacuum modulator, and that the vacuum line also has no leaks and it is connected to an intake manifold vacuum source. If you remove the vacuum line from the vacuum modulator and if there is any transmission fluid is in the vacuum line then the vacuum modulator is faulty and it will need to be replaced.

Where is the transmission fluid cap on a manual 87 toyota pickup


Manual transmissions don't use 'transmission fluid', so they don't have a 'cap' like autos do. Usually there is a bolt on the side of the transmission, sort of like a drain plug, where you add oil. The hole also acts as the level check: you add gear oil until it starts to run out the hole, that's how you know you have enough.

You can buy a Haynes or Chilton manual that will have good info on basic stuff, with pictures and diagrams of all the important parts.

Steering gear fluid capacity and type of manual trasmission fluid?


Hello Dave,
I own a 1988 Ram 50 5-Standard and will go off my own experiences to answer this question.
I use a synthetic 80W transmission fluid.
If you know what is/was already in there; my recommendation is not to change the grade of oil in the transmission unless it is necessary because of driving conditions or vechicle requirements (i.e. towing/hauling/efficiency).
Anyway the Ram 50 Manual 4 & 5 Speed transmissions take a range of fluid grades from 70W-90W. You can use this in both conventional and synthetic oils.

For the power steering, universal power steering fluid works the best, and I honestly don't know the exact amount to put in Ram 50, but may I suggest you purchase ~20oz. Fill it half with half the bottle, then check the dipstick, then put in half of that half-bottle (a quarter of the bottle in), check, and repeat until you get it to the appropriate level.
