After crawling under there again today, I don't find any drain or fill holes such as you have pictured, so I guess I must have another model of tranny other than the AX15

This or they sell hand pumps and hose that fit over the oil bottles. Stick the hose in the fill hole and pump till it starts coming out.

So, do you know what the allen plugs are used for ? Must have a use, or they wouldn't be there .

AllMudd The shops usually have air pressure lube guns. That way is easy too, but yes definitely a half wit idiot design.

I wonder what idiot designed that I wonder what the lube service companies do when they do a oil/lube job ? To put a plug in a un-assessable place was a real half wit boner :-(

It looked like auto trans fluid when I drained it. I guess it was So I guess I'll have to drain the oil I put in it, and reinstall the ATF......crap ! And thanks for the pics, that clarifies everything. I crawled underneath and it looks like the plug where the oil goes in is an allen (?) wrench type fitting. I don't have that big of allen wrench so I guess I'll have to buy one. It doesn't say anything about size of wrench needed in the repair manual..This Haynes manual isn't too good :-(

changing trans fluids

After ready many posts in regards to switching to tranny syn fluid, I put therig up on the ramps, crawled underneath, and thought I had found the correct drain and filler holes, but apparently not :-( I saw two plugs at the end of the tranny AX15, near where the speedo connects, drained the bottom plug , not much came out, maybe a quart, and the I pumped in 2qts or Mobile One 10W30 syn into it. It was on the ramps, so it started to come out after two qts, so I put it down flat, and thought I could fill it the rest of the way with the total 3.5qts it called for, no way :-( Then I looked closer at the repair manual, and noticed it said the drain plug was on the BOTTOM, I had drained one that was on the back. and had filled it through a plug that was on the back above the plug I used to drain it with. So, I find I've drained and filled some part of the tranny that isn't the plugs I was looking for. Anyone tell me what part I actually drained and filled ? I can send a pic if needed.....
