Transaxle Fluid Level Check The transaxle fluid level should be checked only after the vehicle has been parked on level ground for some time. 1. Be sure the vehicle is on level ground and apply the parking brake. 2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). 3. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the VSS. 4. Remove the retaining bolt and pry out the VSS. 5. Check the fluid level as shown. In the service manual figure shown full level at the upper border of VSS gear and low level at the bottom border of the VSS gear 6. If necessary, add transaxle fluid as explained in this section. 6.1 Place a funnel into the VSS mounting hole. 6.2 Add the specified transaxle fluid until the "full" level on the VSS is reached. Installation 7. Install the VSS. 8. Install the VSS bolt and tighten it to 8-12 N-m (69-104 lb-in). 9. Connect the speedometer cable. 10. Connect the electrical connector.

If it is an automatic, then you add fluid the same place you check it. Purchase a filter desingned for this purpose. It is is a manual transmission you add fluid at th transmission. There is a plug near the top on the side. fill it until the lubricant runs out. It is now full. Check your owner's manual for the proper fluid or lube in case it is manual. Some use a lube and some use A/T fluid even if it is a manual.

QUOTE::::On the side of the transmission there will be a plug. remove the plug and check the fluid level. If fluid pours out when you remove it, that means the transmission is full.. if not, add fluid through this hole till it pours out. This information is completely wrong! There is no fill plug on the escort GT manual trans.. the fill hole and level check are the speed sensor... remove the 10mm bolt twist and pull up the speed sensor, re-fill, and if the plastic gear on the speed sensor is wet, it is full.

Both the manual and automatic transmissions take Mercon ATF.
