I saw some diagrams about changing Tranny Fluid, but that picture sure doesn't look like my engine when I open the hood,lol

Where is the Filler plug on a 2004 Eclipse?

Right side, left side, as your looking in?

My sound silly, but just can't find it....

HELP!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance for any replies...

Look for something that looks like he oil checker, but its for the transmission, check it and see what it looks like or if the levels are low... Also the plug I belive is underneath, I think you would have to jack the car up in order to get to it..

Please spicify what type of trans you have Auto or Manual? I have Manual and the filler plug is in the front of the engine passenger side and the drain plug is on the driver side also, you might wanna remove the tires to get better view of the drain plug.

another thing to remember is the drain plug is always lower then the fill plug on a manual car. autos usually have a fill tube.

Do you have to change the transmission fluid in a standard? I heard somewhere that they dont use fluid?They use grease, I didnt think that it sounded right but who knows

Yes you have to change the fluid/gear oil on manual transmission. Again this is an open debate on when you should change it, manufacturers say check fluid level add if nessesary. Its up to the owner when you should replace it and it's not hard to do. If you can change your engine oil you can do transmission gear oil easy.
