Re: cant find the filler hole peugot tranny

The fill plug has a square hole in the head. It is metric, I don't remember the size, but it is between 1/4 and 3/8. I have taken a bolt and ground it square to remove the plug. I don't remember if it is on the driver or passenger side though.

Re: cant find the filler hole peugot tranny

I know where it is now...thanks its about the size of a quarter right? with a square indent that looks like its the size for a socket wrench to go onto it. It didnt make that clear in the manual and I never had a french tranny before. It is on the passenger side and its above the exhaust and a real pain in the neck to get to with a bottle of gear fluid. anyway thanks for your help [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: cant find the filler hole peugot tranny

Don't try to get the bottle up there. Get a piece of 1/2" vinyl tube from the hardware store. Put one end in the tranny and the other in the lube jug. Hold the jug as high as you can and blow into the open end, around the tube. That will start a siphon.

When it's full pinch the hose off at the tranny with Vice Grips and drain it back into the jug. You'll lose a little lube down the side of the box so have a rag handy.

Re: cant find the filler hole peugot tranny

Thanks for the info jim I got myself a turkey baster and started to fill it with that. turns out it wasnt really all that low so it didnt take much but the transfer case was low and that one is easy to fill lol. stupid french tranny. and the irony is that yesterday I was in a rush because I had to go to the dentist about 60 miles away so I stopped at an aamco transmissions place to use they're lift to check for leaks and put fluid in the transfer case and they guy offered me a job as an installer. I think I may take it. what are the chances of a jeeper with the crappiest transmission offered in a jeep getting a job at a transmission shop? lol I think I may go automatic so I can hook up my remote start for those cold winter mornings [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] I thought the tranny was low because when it warms up after maybe 30 miles or so in neutral it becomes hard to move the stick left to right when shifting. it goes into gear just fine but it just doesnt want to move left and right so finding the gear becomes difficult [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: cant find the filler hole peugot tranny
