== == A manual transmission does NOT have a dip stick like a automatic does. It does have a check hole on the side, about half way up from the bottom of the casing. Put the car on a hoist, and remove the plug and stick a finger in the hole. The fluid should be just below the level of the check hole. If too low, use a squeeze bottle with the proper gear oil, ( look at the owner's manual for the proper type) to fill the trans until it just oozes out of the check hole. Replace the plug, and check the trans case for leaks, as well as the front and rear trans seals.
