Manual Transmission Fluid

Manual transmissions have a more complex fluid checking method than automatic transmissions because there is not a dipstick under the hood. A plug on the side of the transmission must be removed from under the vehicle. Even though the checking method is not as convenient, it is still important to check. Manual transmissions may take ATF, motor oil, synchromesh, or heavyweight gear oil. Always read the owner’s manual for fluid specifications.
