If you don't have a dipstick for your transmission, then you'll have to crawl under the car and pump it in.

You just use the dipstick tube with a long funnel. It is on the left had side of the engine bay (passengers) side near the firewall

I don't think I have a dipstick for my manual transmission. I looked everywhere for it. I think I might have to put it in from under the car.

it's easy on a 5 speed...take off the shifter bezel and unbolt the shifter...pull it up and out then pour the fluid in. put some rtv down to reseal the shifter and reverse the steps.

So the trany fluid fluid goes through under the shifter? That's pretty easy. Will try it out. Thanks!

Usually the bottle will have instructions, and let you know how much to add. Are you only adding some of the Lucas oil, or are you draining all of the old fluid, and then adding lucas to the new mix?

After after adding the Lucas transmission fix I have to say what a great difference. I have a stock shifter and it was shifting EXTREMELY hard, at the same time my steering wheel and car would shake alot getting through 1,2,3 gears, it would smooth out at 4,5. Now after adding a half bottle of Lucas getting off the line is smooth with no shaking and the shifts are smoother. Eventually I have to service the whole transmission but for now this is a good fix. I recommend this product.
