Best Answer

Follow the speedometer cable into the transmission. The dipstick is at the end of the cable.

________________________________________________________

You're a dipstick, its a MANUAL transmission, they want to know where the "fill plug" is? ________________________________________________________

Actually the previous contributor is right. To check the MANUAL Transmission Fluid level you must remove the speedometer cable drive. There are marks on the drive end to show the level. This is also the filler for the transmission. I know it is not standard, remember this is a Korean car. ________________________________________________________ Correct- unscrew the bottom-most speedometer fitting, right on top of the trans. You will need quite a long funnel with a pretty small end on it to get fluid into the hole, and that is your only option. It's Mercon ATF, by the way. I don't use the dipstick feature because it's hard to find, hard to see, and hard to use. I just drained it and measured out the transmission's capacity. As long as you don;t have a leak, it will hold its level. Mine's got over 250,000 miles so far, and I've never had to top off my trans fluid. If you're doing much work on it, by all means buy a Haynes or Chilton Service Manual. Cheap as heck and has everything you'll ever need to know inside it. Get one at AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts or Pep Boys or any decent parts store. ________________________________________________________ Specifically for the Aspire 5-speed, first disconnect the speedometer cable at the transmission with a crescent wrench. Remove the 10mm bold holding in the gear assembly. It is a tight fit, so you'll have to turn/wiggle it to slide it out. To add fluid, I recommend a funnel with at least a 12" hose to reach the filler hole. The drain plug is a 3/4" bolt, accessible through a rectangular opening in the frame brace bar beneath the car. The 1994 to 1997 SE or LE models all use the same 5-speed manual transmission. It's capacity is 2.5 liters (2.6 qts.US or 2.2 qts.Imp) using either Dextron III or Mercon ATF (don't mix, choose one). Don't use synthetic ATF unless it was recently rebuilt.
