i take it is an automatic chech the gear box oil level if there is not enough oil in the box it will not change open the bonnet ther should be a filler some where on the ( if you looking at the engine ) left hand side near the bulk head of the engine bay a red ring similer to the dip stick make sure that it is the filler for the gear box check level first then top up
check view port or pull dip stik?? if u cannot see view port, and the dip stik is not a true level dip stik; gita long tie wrap and dip it in the oil fill hole until it bottoms out . then with draw and see if there is ani oil in the crankcase. its how i do my 1975,900,z1,kawa
The pan needs to be removed to change the filter. Use a large pan to catch the oil and remove the pan bolts slowly or you will have a big mess. After you have replaced the filter, Clean and reinstall the pan using a new gasket. This should stop the leak if the old gasket was bad. Dont over tighten the bolts. Measure the oil drained and install the same amount of new fluid through the trans dip stick. Start the engine and shift through all the gears with brake on. Check fluid and add if necessary. Not a bad job, just a little messy..
For a manual gearbox, there isn't a dipstick. There is a plug on the LH side of the diff housing part of the gearbox, just rearwards of where the LH driveshaft leaves the diff. Remove this plug, and the box should be filled to this level. This needs to be done on a level surface. If changing the oil, about 2.5 litres will be needed after draining the old stuff.
Somewhere on the bottom or bottom outside edge of the gearbox is a drain plug. Drain the oil and put the plug back in place. Somewhere on the top of the gearbox casing, including the left and right outer case covers, you will find a dipstick for checking the oil level. Fill via the dipstick hole. Some bikes don't have an actual dipstick but only have a top plug. Normally you will find it near the kick starter lever. When no dipstick is provided, they expect you to drain the old oil and then re-fill with the amount of oil specified for the bike. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic oils. They can screw up the clutch.
there is no dip stick on this car, there is a allen key screw on the gearbox sump, the temperature for this check is stamped on the sump. its a job for a garage as the car has to be level you remove the screw and oil should only trickel out the filler is on the side of the box D
