i assume you have a manual transmission, therefore, you don't have a dipstick. i am also assuming you have a 4x2. there is a fill plug on the driver side of the tranny with a 1/2" breaker plug. break that loose and a little gl-4 fluid might drip out. if not, stick a (clean) pinky and in there and you can see how far down the level is. to change it, all you have to do is break the drain plug (also 1/2") on the passenger side bottom of the tranny and drain it (with the fill plug still removed). check the magnetic drain plug for shavings. Clean off the drain and put it back on (take time to go to the local parts store and get a rubber gasket for the plug to avoid leaks). replace the fluid w/ royal purple max gear or redline mt-90. to fill it, you will need to (a) use a long hose, stand next to the truck with a funnel attached to the hose and very slowly fill it; (b) use a pump ($12 at parts store); or lastly (c) use the bottles by wedging them up there and squeezing like hell (you will only be able to get about half of the fluid out of the container before having to refill due to angle difficulties - this is messy but the quickest). with the royal purple or redline - you will notice much smoother shifting and better gas mileage - especially if you do the diff at the same time.

AnswerI have a 96 automatic Nissan and the dipstick is to the drivers side of the air cleaner hidden near the firewall . It's tough to find as it's just a small black knob. AnswerIt is located on the passenger side,close to the fire wall. sort of under the breather.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission, the dipstick should be located toward the rear of the engine on the passenger side. With vehicle warmed up and parking brake applied the transmission fluid is checked with the transmission in neutral.
