Q: where is the gear oil located on the car

asked by on

trying to find out where the gear oil is located on my 1999 toyota solara (manual)
My car has a manual transmission.

To check the gear oil level on your vehicle, there is a filler plug located on the drivers side, front of the transmission. The oil level should be 0-5mm below the lip of the plug hole. Keep in mind that the vehicle must be sitting on level ground and you will need a new washer for the fill plug, as they are not reusable, according to the manufacturer.
