Fill the 5-speed manual transmission with 85/90 Hypoid Gear oil.
FLUID LEVEL CHECK
See Figure 1
To check the fluid level, the vehicle should be raised slightly to access the plug. Place jackstand under the jacking points at all four tires, then remove the filler plug on the side of the transmission case. Clean the plug and remove it. The fluid should be up to the bottom of the filler plug hole.
If additional fluid is required, add it through the filler plug hole to bring the level up. Use only Dexron® or Mecron® automatic transmission fluid. Install the filler plug when the fluid level is correct, making sure it is fully seated.
DRAIN AND REFILL
The fluid can be drained from the manual transmission simply by removing the drain plug on the side of the transmission case. Use a suitable container to catch the old fluid, then install the plug and remove the filler plug on the side of the transmission to add new fluid. Add fluid until the level is at the base of the filler plug hole.
