On the bottom of the transmission there is only one bolt and it is in front of the skid plate. Pull the plug and let drain, be sure to clean bolt off, it has a magnet on it to pick up debrie from transmission. the fill plug is on the passenger siide towards the top, it is the same size bolt as the drain plug. I had to take my skid plate off to get to it easier. IN YOUR QUESTION you asked how much it would cost to change to an auto matic transmission. That cost would depend on where you take it. An auto matic transmission fo rit would be around 1,005 dollars on the site that i found plus shipping http://market.autopartsfair.com/Jeep-transmissions/find_product.html?make=jeep&model=wrangler_4wd&year=1998 . but you will still need to get a shifter and several different things in order for it to work. I would have to say at the least it may cost 2,000.Good Luck.
Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid
Automatics all use ATF+4. The manual in the wrangler uses a special manual transmission fluid from the dealer.
Should be a drain plug at bottom of transmission Should be a fill plug at side of transmission - fill to this level
I recommend syncromesh
A 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ manual transmission engine can be filled with 6 quarts of fluid. Its cooling system, on the other hand, can be filled with 11 quarts fluid.
Auto is MOPAR ATF+4 Manual is 75w90
Synchromesh is the best I have tried
Why? There is no need to change the manual transmission fluid in a 2 year old vehicle.
Should be a plug on the side of the transmission - fill to this level
No, dipstick. Fluid level is checked through a plug on the side.
SAE 75W 90 should tell you in owners manual
Kia Rio manual trans fluid changeChange the manual transmission fluid, first remove drain pulg on the lower bottom of the transmission. Drain old fluid. Reinstall drain plug. Remove the speed cable housing from the transmission, this is where you add the new fluid.
You have to remove the pan if there is no drain plug
Auto uses ATF+4 Manual uses a synthetic manual trans fluid made specially for the NV3500.
Just checked the manual...Dexron II
I prefer Pennzoil synchromesh
there is no fluid for a manual transmission
you change the manual transmission fluid in a '99 cavalier simply by removing the transmission drain plug and allowing all the fluid to drain then replace the plug and refill with Syncromesh transmission fluid(that is the fluid recommended by Chevy for use in your transmission) It should take 2 quarts.
You can use any SAE certified manual transmission fluid in your 1996 Ford manual transmission. Make sure you use manual transmission fluid and not automatic transmission fluid.
To change the transmission fluid on the manual 1998 Ford Escort ZX2, drain the fluid from the drain hole near the speed sensor. Then refill the fluid using the plug in the side of the transmission.
how do you change the transmossion fluid in a manual nissan altima se?
