well in any manual FR (real wheel drive) car i just use snap ring plyers to take out the "C" clamps that hold the shifter in pull the shifter out and fill from there, just make sure you dont get fluid on your carpet(the smell will never go away) Unless you like that kinda thing:)

This answer was not by me but I DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING THIS. I did this with a Skyline in Japan and found that although it seemed full from the shifter, when we went under the car it took nearly 3 more bottles to reach optimum fill. Dont cut corners tranny's are not cheap. Use the nozzle on the bottle and the pumps at the Auto parts store go underneath your vehicle on a steady lift and fill it from the bottom till it squirts out.

There is a bolt under neath the tranny. take it out and drain the fluid. ATF fluid 2.6 quarts is the capacity of the tranny

I really doubt that there is a drain plug for the tranny, usually you have to unbolt the tranny fluid pan and take it down to get to the filter and drain the fluid.

start up the vehicle and run through all the gears. then shut it off and go directly under the tranny pan. loosen up the bolt and drain the tranny fluid. when it is all drained, torque to bolt back on to the tranny pan at 25-30 lbs. then go back up to the engine compartment, where you check your tranny fluid level, and put about 5 quarts of tranny fluid in. then start your car up again, run through all the gears and check the fluid level again while the engine is running. add more fluid if you need to. if there is too much, drain a little bit out and check it again.

A manual tranny does not take tranny fluid. So you can't check it. A manual tranny does not take tranny fluid. So you can't check it.

Take the bottom pain off

spy glass on side of tranny. it is of course a sealed tranny.

The only place to fill the tranny fluid is through the tranny dipstick drain plug underneath

check the tranny fluid ASAP. or it could just mean your tranny is worn out. but check that fluid now

jack it up, check the bottom of the tranny and find the bolt, unscrew it, drain, pour in new fluid from the top into the pipe(reservoir)

The drain plug on bottom of transmission pan has allen screw in center of plug. If you remove the alln set screw and no fluid comes out, the tranny fluid could be low. The fill plug is on the tail shaft of tranny just above the drive shaft ( top right). Tranny fluid must be pumped in this opening after removing plug. Hand pump can be purchased at most auto parts stores. Slowly add tranny fluid until it starts to run out of hole in center of drain plug ( allen set screw must be removed from center of drain plug) the drain plug is about 2 inches tall, this is the level of tranny fluid in pan. Tranny must be at operating temp when adding fluid to achieve prop fill. Yes there is no dipstick, if your tanny fluid get low, the check tanny light should come on.

Find the drain plug on the tranny oil pan. Loosen it and the fluid should start to drain - remove the plug all the way and let the contents go into a pan. When doing this, one also needs to change the tranny oil filter - this is accomplished by removing the tranny oil pan and changing it.

You check and fill under the car on the side of the tranny a plug.

First, check the tranny fluid when the SUV is off and cold. Then check the tranny fluid after the SUV is warmed and idling. The level of tranny fluid level should go down, if it doesn't the tranny itself is not taking up any. Replacing the tranny fluid filter may solve your problem. If not its most likely the tranny oil pump. This is if your fluid level stays the same when warm or, cold. If the tranny fluid changes from cold to warm, your tranny has a more serious problem and should be looked at by a pro.

You drain and refill at the transmission from underneath the vehicle.

From under the tranny. Youll see one odd size bolt that is the drain. On manuals its on the differential bottom. On auto's its on the bottom of the tranny. Autos have filters on the front side of the tranny. manuals have NO filters

you should have 2 dipsticks. 1 for oil and 1 for tranny fluid. the tranny fluid dipstick is going to be the one in the back of the engine compartment. if you have to add some. use "dot 3 tranny fluid" and a funnel. check the fluid level with a warmed up tranny and while the eng in idling to get a proper level reading

With the car jacked up and level. Follow the right side axle inboard into the tranny. Where the axle enters the tranny you will find a 7/16 bolt at approximately the four oclock position. It is a small hole so look carefully. With the engine running and the tranny hot remove the bolt. If fluid does not drain at small portions of fluid until it seeps out. If adding fluid after a tranny filter change it will take about 7.5 quarts.

Raise vehicle, remove drain plug from tranny pan, drain fluid, reinstall plug using new washer. Remove tranny dipstick & refill with the proper amount of Dexron III...

There are a number of seals in it. However if you mean can fluid be changed and added YES. You have to drop the tranny pan on automatics to drain them, and there should be a fill and a drain plug in a manual tranny.

it is right above the drain plug onnthe bottom of the tranny

The drain plug for the transmission is on the under side of the tranny, pretty much directly across from the engine oil drain plug. Drain the transmission fluid and put the drain plug back in. To refill, find the transmission oil dipstick. It is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment(on the back side of the tranny). Get a long funnel to fit down in that hole and fill with aprox. 3 quarts of transmission fluid. Warm engine and turn it off. Check the fluid level within a minute of shutting the engine off.

There is no tranny fluid it.uses the oil.from the motor to lube it

there is no way to check the tranny fluid in a automatic 2000 Vette..GM didnt put a dip stick on this tranny..
