How much transmission fluid in manual transmission
I replaced my drivers side cv shaft and I need to replace the oil that came out of the manual transmission...I see a transmission oil cap on top of the transmission but there is no dip stick....and the hole seems smaller at the bottom??????
How do I know how much fluid to put in for proper operation??

Well, not being familiar with your vehicle I can recommend this. The shaft seal is seated in the transmission where the input shaft enters the transmission.
If the seal part is a round metal ring with a rubber inner seal, then in all likelyhood it is pressed into the transmission.
Now if you think you can pull the seal out after you remove the CV drive shaft - meaning do you have enough room to get up in there to pop it out, then yes you can do it without removing the transmission.
On the other hand if the seal is not accessable to pop out then you will probablly have to remove the transmission which is by no means an easy job. Might want to take a look on youtube and do a search for CV inner shaft seal removal for your particular vehicle or one similar. You will probably find the answer there.
Hi and thanks for using FixYa.
It is not necessary to drain the fluid prior to removing the axle, but you will lose fluid once you begin to remove the axle from the transmission. If the vehicle is supported high enough on suitable ramps or jack stands, you can easily place a small pan or bucket beneath the end of the shaft where it meets the transmission, to catch any lost fluid. Also, don't forget to refill your transmission fluid to factory specifications when you are finished with the work. I hope this is of value to you, and good luck with your repair. :)
Sure, just drill them out with successively larger bits until you get a good size hole, then use an easy out to spin them out. Just make sure you don't brake any bits off in the bolts--be careful. Start each one with a center punch. Drill slow and straight. OK?
