Re: [DML] Manual Transmission Gear Oil Help

The oil should be checked with the car on level ground or on a level  
hoist/lift.  If the fill plug is out and the car is level on the ground and  oil is 
trickling out, it is just fine.  You wouldn't want it gushing out,  that's too 
full.  A little bit coming out is just fine.

When I  take the plug off the side, do I know I have too much oil if it is  
trickling out onto the ground when the car is level?   Should I  let it come 
the side until it stops, and then plug it back  up?   Does that mean I have 
enough oil in the  tranny?

Thanks, your help is appreciated.   I have no way of  measuring how much oil 
is currently in there, however the fact that it is  coming out the side when 
plug is off may be an indicator.
