For the manual transmission only: Remove drain plug on bottom of transmission to drain. Fill plug is located on right side of transmission and is large diameter (about 1 inch). With car on level ground, fill until no more oil can be added (runs out the fill hole) then replace plug. Oil capacity is about 2-1/2 quarts. A small funnel with a piece of hose attached will be necessary to fill. Service manual recommends 10w-30 motor oil in the transmission. I have found smoother, lighter shifting action by using 0W-30 (yes, that's zero) Mobil 1(the lightest you can find) in the transmission. 342,000 miles and still going strong. Drew
