Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1996 nissan 300z manual tranny?

A manual transmission does not have a dipstick. You check the gear oil in it by finding the upper plug in the gearbox, removing it and placing your pinky in there to feel the oil level. Optimumly, a small amount should drain out when you remove it, indicating it is full. If not, use a funnel and usually 80/90 weight synthetic gear oil to fill until it runs out of hole. Replace plug using thread tape on plug threads and tighten firmly. This is done from underneath vehicle preferrably not raised unevenly on a level surface, or on a full car lifting rack. If the transmission is not level as if in your garage on all 4 wheels, you will not get a correct indication as to the amount of gear oil in the gear case.

Hi, I'd like to know which oil I need for engine

Engine oil is a personal preference, brand anyway. You can use any kind of oil you want, all of it is tested and has to conform to the industry standards. The weight of the oil is what is important. Depending on where you live, the temp of the oil is rated in weight, 10 w40 is great multi viscosity oil, for high temp. Up north, straight 30 weight would be ok. Synthetics are ok, some people don't like them, they are old school, they change their oil regularly. If you change you oil every 3000 miles, you should never have a problem with the bottom of your engine.
Your transmission is different. A lot of newer transmissions are sealed to the owner. The dealer wants to get in there, If you don't have a dipstick to check the fluid with, you have to pull the plugs out of the side of the tranny to check it. One is for fill, the other is level. Transmission fluids are numerous, you have to get the right fluid in there. Most say what it is on the dipstick, but if you don't have one, you will have to go by the owner's manual. Transmissions go without fluids for long periods. Most people don't ever check them till something goes wrong. Check it out, hope this helps.

1989 ford escort cabriolet gearbox oil

is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.

If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.
