Gear oil is for manual transmissions, the more miles the heavier the oil recommendation... for automatics...read the dipstick.... also You should be able to find a shop manual at your local library with the right info...make copies as they are usually only in the REFERENCE section....good luck:)
Automatic or manual?
The manual transmission in a 1994 Cherokee uses 80 W 90 gear oil, not ATF.
If it is a manual, you put the correct fluid in it. If an automatic, do not start the engine. You need to drain it out of the transmission.
there is no fluid for a manual transmission
Your manual transmission does not have to have fluid in it in order to start the engine. Theoretically you can start the engine with the transmission out of the vehicle totally. That being said.... Its not a good idea to start the engine if there is no fluid in the transmission just in case someone tries to move the vehicle by putting it in gear. You do not want to drive the vehicle with no fluid in the trans.
It depends on the engine size... 2.5L = MOPAR ATF PLUS (Automatic Transmission Fluid - Type 7176) 4.0L = MOPAR Automatic Transmission Fluid (P/N 4773590) or equivalent labeled DEXRON III MERCRON fluid. This information is taken directly from the 1995 Jeep Cherokee Owner's Manual, page 168. Putting in the wrong kind of transmission fluid will cause problems.
just regular transmission oil because my dad had a Cherokee Laredo te same year and he just used regulsr transmission fluid
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.
The transmission fluid filler is located in the back of the engine compartment on the 2007 Accent manual transmission. You fill it by removing the dipstick.
A Cherokee uses Dextron in an automatic and 75w90 in a manual. A Grand Cherokee uses Mopar ATF+4 in an automatic.
There should be two dipsticks under the hood on a Malibu. One will be plainly marked "OIL" or "ENGINE OIL." The other one is your transmission fluid. This is assuming your Malibu has automatic transmission. If your Malibu has a manual transmission (stick shift), then there is no dipstick for transmission fluid -- manual trannies get lubrication from the engine oil.
More than likely it uses transmission lube, which is way heavier than transmission fluid. But, saying that, there are some manual transmissions that do use A/T fluid. Check your owners manual for the correct lube for your transmission. Installing an improper lubricant will ruin the transmission.
Auto uses Dextron Manual uses 80w90
2.20 liters for the manual 5 cylinder 3.5 liter engine
If it is an automatic the dipstick is on the left side (passenger) of the engine near the firewall. If it is a manual transmission it has a plug on the driver side of the trans
Manual transmission fluid is MERCON automatic transmission fluid.
I dont think manual transmission cars use transmission fluid.
Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid
Most metric motorcycles do not have separate engine and transmission fluids. The engine oil also lubricates the transmission.When in doubt, check the owner's manual.
You can use any SAE certified transmission fluid in your 1998 Ford escort manual transmission. Make sure the transmission fluid is for your manual transmission and not an automatic transmission.
