The transmission filler plug for a standard transmission is behind a plastic cover under the drivers side wheel well. You have to remove three screws (I think that they are 3/8 or 5/16 in), one near the strut, one near the front of the wheel well, and one underneath near the bottom left end of the radiator. Pull the cover down and place it to the side. The filler plug will be exposed. The 5-speed manual transmission takes Dexron III auto transmission fluid. Have the car parked on level ground and just fill it up to the bottom of the hole. Replace the plug. Put back the cover and replace the three screws. It helps to turn your wheels all the way to the left before doing this procedure. There is a special cap available at some stores that has a built in valve and spout for use on transmission fluid bottles. Works great. Just be sure to place it in a paper towel afterwards to soak up the fluid.

drivers side, in the transmission. The dipstick may be broken or Missing. Look for a tube the size of a pencil.

The 1986 Honda 350 transmission has a capacity of eight pints of transmission fluid. The manufacturer recommends that you never overfill the transmission fluid.

Well they all use ATF or MTF Automatic or manual so you can use the atf fluid which is pink for your transmission

Transmission fluid is added to most vehicles in the same place that you check the fluid level. Pull the transmission fluid dipstick, insert a long funnel in the tube and add fluid there. Remember transmission fluid is added by the pint not quarts.

Nope, no transmission drain plug. You have to drop the pan to drain the fluid and change the filter.

A 1986 BMW 325e uses standard Pentosin ATF 1 transmission fluid. It can be purchased at local BMW dealerships and some repair shops.

If it is an automatic transmission, Dexron III or Mercon are both acceptable.

My Haynes book says that all Ford Taurus(es) & Mercury Sable(s) from 1986-1990 use Motorcraft Type F automatic transmission fluid for the power steering fluid. The transmission fluid doubles as the power steering fluid.FYI 1986 and 1987 automatic trans-axle fluid is Motorcraft Type H automatic transmission fluid and 1988 onward is Motorcraft Mercon automatic transmission fluid.The brand doesn't matter so much as the right type of fluid.Hope this helps.

I have a 1986 Ford 550 backhoe and the transmission uses hydralic oil

Believe it or not, you add transmission fluid into the same tume that you use to check the transmission fluid. Just a reminder, before you add transmission fluid, make sure you check the level properly. Vehicle must be level, warmed up, and running. Also make sure you put the transmission through all of the gears before checking it.

The transmission fluid dip stick is located beside the Oil dipstick. The oil is the one with the red top.

Yes, the powertrain options for these years are the same, and the vans are physically identical.

You fill the transmission thru the dipstick tube, passenger side back of motor, it has a red top.

A person should know the layout of their car. The transmission fluid dipstick is located on the passenger side of the car, and behind the engine.

The 198 Buick Skylark was offered in a 2.5L L4 and 3.0L V6. Both power-train options were provisioned for automatic transmission fluid through the dipstick/tube assembly.
