Default found a cheap simple way to fill the transmission


http://www.amazon.com/Sprayco-Long-R.../dp/B000VYGCZW

works on an C5 Corvette A4
I'm thinking it should work on a manual
I just used a heat gun to make the tube bend the way I needed it so it would fit.

I doubt it would work with 90wt but dexron flows easily and it worked to perfection

found one at a local hardware store for 4 bucks
FYI : the tube goes to the bottom so you just squeeze it to make it work
HOLDS 2 QTS.

they make a pump that attaches to the quart bottles the fluid comes in and you just use the hand pump instead of squeezing the bottle. they are made for outboard boat engines. it seems like a better idea.

been there , done that
this is easier
you can do it with one hand

I have various types of pumps and found this to be the least amount of hassle
for 4 bucks and a few minutes with a heat gun , give it a try
I bet you end up liking it , and for a vette A4 it's by far the easiest

You can't shove a funnel into the dipstick tube?

Agreed. Go to Wal-Mart, look in the oil aisle, and where the marine section is buy the little screw on pump for a couple bucks. Works great, nothing else, required, and takes up very little space.
