I'm not really sure on this late of a model. The drain is on the bottom of the transmission and I think it's a pipe plug on the front of the transmission oil pan. The earlier models that I work on had a drain plug that looked exactly like the engine oil drain plug that was also on the bottom of the oil pan. Many a transmission has been drained thinking it was the engine oil drain. Go to this site and look at the picture of the transmission housing. http://www.bikebandit.com/2008-harley-davidson-touring-street-glide-flhx/o/m18635#sch624765 Pay particular attention to the oil pan gasket at the front of the pan. Notice the hole in the gasket directly above the socket head pipe plug, part #96. This looks like the transmission drain to me.

Good Luck
Steve

You need to get under the car, identify the transmission oil pan and look for the drain plug:


26062649-yytlcu2b3evmxr44xdn3gosb-1-0.jpg Place a large plastic dish beneath the drain plug and the undo the plug. Allow the old fluid to drain into the dish. Replace the drain plug.

Locate the filler plug - it will be on the side of the transmission, higher up. Use bottles with spouts to fill with the correct amount of transmission fluid .. or .. possible .. fill with fresh transmission fluid via the transmission dipstick.

There may be two plugs (I doubt it) ... typically, the engine and transmission share the engine oil ... one plug.

I have a 2009 heritage softail classic and cannot locate the drain plugs for the oil and transmission. Is there any printed drawings of these locations? Thank you Jim Ragazzo


For your oil drain, look at the oil tank from the right side of the bike. On the backside down at the bottom is where the hose comes out. It runs down behind the transmission and comes out just below the chrome end plate on the transmission. Follow it on down and you'll see that it connects to the crossmember of the frame that runs under the transmission. Directly underneath this connection, under the crossmember there is a drain plug. Remove the plug and the oil will drain.

To drain the transmission, look at the chrome end plate on the transmission that the clutch cable runs into. This is the clutch release mechanism. Just below this, in the center the plate the chrome one bolts to, is a drain plug similar to a pipe plug. Remove the plug, transmission drains. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

Where is the location on a 1994 honda civic ex that i would fill the manual transmission with gear oil?


Hello,
Manual transmissions have a fill plug and a drain plug on the side of the transmission. The fill plug is a little above the drain plug. Pull the fill plug and fill the transmission until the transmission fluid just barely seeps out and re-plug the transmission. That is the proper way to fill it. You will need a long stem funnel to give you the room you need to fill it. Your transmission requires a 10W30 weight motor oil, just like your engine. If you have a little time and 3 or 4 quarts of oil laying around you can pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug and let all the oil drain out. Then plug the transmission and re-fill it with fresh oil and this is a transmission flush for your transmission. You just saved $70 shop charge doing this. I say pull the fill plug first and THEN the drain plug because the last thing you want to do is pull the drain plug first and then find out the fill plug has welded itself and won't come out and now you can't fill the transmission. Fill plug first always.

Location of oil drain plug on harley davidson road king


The tank on your Road King is on the bottom of the transmission. Look underneath the transmission and you'll see two drain plugs. The plug on left front of the oil pan is the engine oil drain. The plug near the center of the pan is the transmission drain plug. Good Luck, Steve

How to change trans oil fxdwg


The transmission oil is drained through a plug on the bottom of the transmission. There are two plugs under the transmission. The one closest to the center is the transmission drain plug. The one closest to the left side of the bike is engine oil.

Drain the transmission and refill with 20-24 ounces of Harley-Davidson semi synthetic transmission lube or Syn3. The filler plug is on the right side transmission cover. There is a dip stick on this plug. Make sure you've got the correct amount of lube in the transmission.

If you drain the engine oil by mistake, refill with Syn3, three quarts I think. Put in three and check, it may take four quarts.

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
