2003 S 6 speed transaxle issue

Recommended Posts

How can the gear oil level be checked when the computer check is not functioning?

I noticed the filler and drain plugs are different and in different locations compared other models (see photo).

Can't find any reference material yet.

What I think is the filler hole (directly above the drain) is a somewhat small, too small for a little finger, and inside the hole turns toward the rear, so you can't really dip downward to check the level.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just did this a few weeks ago. The drain is on the bottom facing down. The fill plug is farther back on the left (drivers) side about half way up on the transaxle. Both are 10mm hex. Remove the fill plug first, stick your finger in and you'll feel the level. Drain it while warm, let it drain for an hour or so, then replace drain plug and fill. It took 3 quarts plus to refill.

From my Land Rover I've learned that you do a drain and fill with cheap gear oil, drive a week or so, then do a drain and fill with the good stuff.

Removing the braces and the alluminum pan inder the trans is a pain.

Good luck with it!
