Today while cruising around town I was finding it increasingly difficult to get the shifter into gear. I've never had this problem before. Does it need oil? I hope it's something that simple. If so, how do I check the oil, drain old oil, and refill? What type of oil do I use?
What do I fill it up with and how do I bleed it? By this do you mean drain the oil out first, then refill?
You should have an internal slave cylinder, so look underneath at the driverside of the transmission you will see a metal line (looks kind of like a fuel line) that has a fitting on the end, it sticks out of the bell housing a few inches.
Add fluid up top to the round reservoir in your photos (DOT 3 brake fluid).
You will need someone to help push in the clutch pedal while you turn the fitting to let out some air/bubbles. Just like bleeding brakes.
I would go ahead and change the trans fluid as well, I think you have the BA10 trans, if so here is a good write up.
I had the same problem so bad, the PO had broken the TC shifter knob right off and said he never moved it except 4 wd high and 2 wd never knew about theneutral and 4 wd low. I had to take the rubber boots off and use Kroil to barake it loose enough to be able to shift it and I've been lubing it every once and awile since no more shifter problems. Good luck to you Joe100
