SOURCE: where is the manual transmission dip stick

there is no dip stick you have a fill plug and drain plug.the fill plug is the one higher up on the trans case. take out the fill plug and if it runs out the hole or you can touch the gear lube with tip of your finger in the fill hole its full. have a great day.

SOURCE: where is the Transmission fluid dip stick to add

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!

Why is the transmission fluid above the H mark when cold?

Water is heavier than transmission fluid, so if you're checking the fluid level static (engine not running), the dip stick probably is not reaching all the way to the bottom (where the water would be). If the engine is running, you should be able to see milky or foamy fluid on the dipstick as the water is mixed with the fluid. If in doubt, drain the transmission and see what comes out.

The 1987 maxima was garaged for about 1 1/2 years . a/c stopped working then started making a loud grinding sound and oil gauge erratic ,dip stick shows very low, i just had the oil changed one day prior...

best idea is to get it to an accredited service shop and get a quote on the cost to fix
for a car that is 30 years old , it may not be financially viable to repair as you may get more from the wreckers

Where do I place transmission fluid in my 1993 Nissan Maxima? Thank you!

Like most of the Nissan products tranny fluid is added by pouring it down the tranny Dip-stick tube ( no I'm not kidding).Get a small funnel and add a little bit at a time until the fluid level comes up.Sometimes a tight fitting piece of hose on the tube makes the job easier. We have one made up like this in my auto shop and it cuts down on spilt fluid. Good Luck

Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube.
