How do you add gear oil to an eclipse transmission?

I need to add oil to my eclipse transmission.

If it is an automatic there should be a tube located on top of the engine that you can pout the oil into. If you have a manual the may be a filler hole on the case beside the drain plug located slightly higher up. I can't be more specific without knowing the exact year and model.

Do not add gear oil to your transmission only add the factory transmistion fluid! First go to your owners manual and find where the transmission fluid dip stick is and check the level as directed. In some casses you can only add transmission fluid through the dipstick holder.

Look in your car owner's manual to determine whether the engine should be on or off when checking the ATF. On most cars, the engine must be fully warmed up and running. On some, however, the engine should be warm but turned off.

Go with Royal purple in the trans. For the engine,each one has it's merits. but I'd give a slight edge to the synthetic. 10w-30. If you really want to do something to help your car,go with a complete Z-Max treatment. always run synthetic oils (transmission,rearend and engine). If you're not burning oil then stay with the same weigh that you currently are using.
