Excellent question and thanks for correcting your posting!
Yes, I go to Walmart in the automotive section and buy one of their lube pumps. They cost about $10 and are worth their weight in gold when you need to add fluid at a horizontal angle. The lube pumps are usually red and black in a clear package. They're usually somewhere around the oil section.
Nope, the fill plug should be a 17mm bolt which simply opens the fill hole. It should be about the same size as the oil drain plug. It is located on the front side of the tranny facing the front of the car. Only way to really get to it is from underneath the car.
Ok thank you very much. I got it. And yes it needs oil. Thank god i checked. Many thanks again! Oh before i forget. How can i put my eclipse pic to be my avatar? I already uploaded one and it said profile updated but still nothing.
When i had to fill up my trans, i went out and bought some generic hose and a tiny funnel. Ijust put the hose on the end and stood there for a while slowly pouring it in the trans. The setup probably ran me two usd to make. By the way if you take the bottle of gear lube and set it on the warm engine on its side the lube actually flows quicker. Just my two cents.
Yea, just get a funnel and a CLEAR hose. Trick is making sure it fits over the funnel, but will also fit in the fill hole. Also if you can, get REDLINE MT90 G4L gear oil. Its going to take you about 2.5 quarts, to fill it btw...
