Are you sure it's not the computer? We got our Jetta back from the dealer once, and it would'nt shift into high gear. Took it back and he fixed it with his laptop.

Would like to know where the top up plug for my gear oil is and if there is a dip stick manual proton savvy bt 2006


Manual Transmissions don't have dip sticks.

2. Manual gearboxes have a drain and filler plug. The filler plug is usually found in an accessible position on one side of the gearbox which has to be accessed from under the vehicle.

To top up the gearbox the car has to be perfectly level so if you need to add oil to the gearbox you ideally need to get the car up on a garage hoist/lift so you can both access the filler plug easily, remove it and pump in the fresh gear oil. The usual correct oil level on these gearboxes is level with the bottom section of the filler plug opening in the gearbox. However you should check with the proton service staff on the correct procedure for topping up the manual gearbox in your car.

Hi Arlene, Open the hood and check the oil level in the gear box. The oil can be checked on the dip stick which is fitted into the gearbox. The level is checked with the engine running and the parking brake fully applied and the selector lever in 'N' On the dip stick there are four marks. The fluid level must be between the two lower levels if the engine has just been started and if it has warmed to operating temperature it should be between the upper marks. If the oil level is correct, the gearbox has a problem. Regards John

How do I put gearbox fluid in ? Where is the level glass? I have a 1997 mitsubishi magna


Gearboxes usually have no oil dipstick / looking glass. On the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with (brass) washer. This is where the gearbox oil goes. To check the level is to stick one finger in downwards, when there's no oil at this level its usually too low.

On the bottom of the gearbox there's a similar bolt with washer to drain the old oil. The bolt can be magnetic - and can look a bit like a mushroom. Tiny particles from the gears stick on there - this is normal. Large bits of metal can be a cause for concern.

Always use the specified gearbox oil - wrong oil makes changing gears hard.

Hard to change gears in my v6 hyundia


First thing to check is oil-level in the gearbox. If far below the filler hole - refill and look for oil leaks around seals and in clutch housing.

If oil level is ok - it might need changing or when serviced recently, it might have been filled with the wrong oil.

Somewhere on the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with a seal ring. Usually this is the filler hole. Oil level check is simple, stick a finger in downwards. Should feel the oil level.

Gear boxes need the right oil viscosity and are quite sensitive - meaning changing gears gets difficult specially when cold.

My gear stick keeps jumping when in gear.


Hi sheila? this is normally caused by lack of oil in the gearbox. make sure the gearbox oil level is ok before doing any thing els. In the fron of the gearbox there should be a plastic lead which can be unscrewed to inspect the oil level. the oil level should be level with the base of the hole. If oil comes out when you unscrew the lead that's ok. If the oil level is ok then the gearbox may be worn out.

Hi, what oil and how much does my renault espace 1.9dci 6 speed 2003 gearbox need. there is a wine in the box so i thought i could put thicker oil in to get rid of the wine? and there is no drive in 6th...


hi this might not have anything to do with the actual gear box, this sounds more like your clutch is on its way out, the wine you hear may be the thrust bearing bearings worn, and the no drive in 6th gear means that it has worn to the extent that it will not drive 6th gear, it will be better to get this checked out, but i am pretty sure it is not the actual gearbox...hope this helped
