Default Where is the transmission fluid dipstick?

Hi guys,

I would like to check the fluid levels of my transmission, but I am unable to find the dipstick. It is a 2004, but it is not automatic, it's manual. I'm wondering if that is why I can't find it?
I don't need to add fluid, just check if everything is alright.

Thanks!

there is no dipstick on manual transmissions. if you remove the rubber fill plug, the fluid should be right up to the hole with the car level.

There isn't any dip stick on those. But ther is a plug to add or fill. Maybe rob342 can tell you the specifics.

Looks like rob got there before I finished my post.LOL

no you need to crawl under the car to find it. it will be about 3" up and 3" over from the axle on the transmission, on the drivers side of the car.

unless you are very skinny, flexible, and have a low to the ground dolly.

Yeah, it sounds like a type of work I will only be able to do once I buy all I need for my first/next oil change.
