  • transmission fill bolt stuck, urgent!

    So yesterday I drained my transmission fluid, but the fill bolt is not budging and it is starting to get stripped. I have heard of people filling through where the vss is or the breather hose, but I have no idea where/how that is. Can anyone explain to me exactly where I would find either of those on the car? pic? I need my car running asap.

    i believe this vid gives other options..if i remember correctly you can fill through the speed cable hole...FYI...that's why it's always recommended to break loose the fill plug before draining..good luck

      Thanks for responding but that is kind of vague, can I get a description of where I would find that? and what it would look like

                      I agree, I haven't been able to drive it much as I just got my license back today but so far it feels smoother, and less notchiness in 3rd gear.
