Re: Manual transmission fluid

You pull the fill plug on the front side of the tranny from underneath. Fill with GL-4 gear lube until some begins to run out the hole.

On a side note, please review the rules of the site. We require you to use your shift key when making posts and capitalize your sentences. It makes it easier to read.

Thanks

Re: Manual transmission fluid

I am very sorry. Also do they sell something for me to put the fluid in the tranny? It really seems like it'll just fall to the side if i try to fill it up just like that.

Re: Manual transmission fluid

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.

They look like this:

Re: Manual transmission fluid

Thank you. Also i just check where you told me to check and i see 3 screws. They are lined up closely. I took the top screw off and it came out with a spring. Sound familiar?

Re: Manual transmission fluid

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.

Re: Manual transmission fluid

It's got to be a certain size. Go to control panel and you should be able to load the avatar. It also has to be a certain kind of file like a .jpg.

Re: Manual transmission fluid

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.

Re: Manual transmission fluid

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...

Re: Manual transmission fluid

If you are going to add tranny fluid I'd just remove the drain bolt and get all the old gunk out and fill it with new fluid.

I can't believe this is the first any one said anything about changing it altogether
