2000 gt manual trAns mission

Want to flush my trAns fluid out and I did research on it. But the fill bolt? Look more like a plastic bulb, boy quarter size stuck in there. I don't think this is factory. Can anybody help me?

Re: 2000 gt manual trAns mission

I believe the best thing to do is to take off your shifter, bolts, cover etc. See where the fluid level is and mark this for memory (but obviously check the owners manual/haynes on how much fluid you need). Then drain the old fluid, then refill from the actual bottom part of the shifter. At the same time you can clean all the Sh*$ that has collected in their over the years. I'm sure this probably isn't the only way, but their is an easy youtube vid on how to remove and install an MGW shifter so if you follow that video online it should be no problem.

Don't sound like you have the fill port. That bulb is a vent. Look lower for the stamped fill word. Below that plug (3/8" drv), is the drain plug(3/8" drv).

Best way to fill it is thru the dipstick. And you should check for capacity for tranny oil change with filter change. Imo i have a auto tranny.....for now. And i redid my fluids with filter and gasket. I filled it with 4 qts first thru the dipstick then i turned the car on and put in 2 more qts cycled from park to drive and revved motor on drive holdin the brake to move liquid around thru tranny and converter. Put back in park measure and repeat until in the hot range mark for full on tje dipstick. But that's imo i work as a mechanic lol

The fill plug should be about 3" straight above the drain plug.
