Just got the a/c working in the SVT and it only cost me 21 bucks, Harbor Freight FTW!! Oh and the 20% off the price and that was 25.99 but is normally 29.99 rang up 19.99 after the coupon. God I love that place

From what I read on the internet, hehe, the clutch master cylinder shares fluid with break system, and that seems to be on the good level, transmission fluid you meant gearbox oil ? ok i know how silly the last question sounds but yeah, i'm a noobie just wanna make sure :P

guys... how do i check manual transmission fluid level? get the fill plug out and i should be able to see fluid almost trying to spill out?

also... :D which fluid should i buy ?
and if i don't know what kind of fluid it has already, should i flush it out completely before adding the one i bought?

The fluid level should be level with the fill hole. Or that's how it is on the MTX-75 and that's what I did on my SVT when I refilled the tranny after putting it back in.
