Is it possible to check the oil level on an '02 SVT Getrag manual transmission? All I can find are the fill plug at the top of the transmission and the drain plug on the side near the bottom. Is the only way to be sure it is filled adequately is to drain it and refill it with 2.1 quarts of fluid? You all have probably discussed this before, but I could not find it. Thanks

the fill plug is in the front of the trans, about halfway up. (below the battery area)

Just fill the fluid even with the plug. It will be the right amount as long as you are parked on a level area. Allow excess to drain back out the fill hole.

Not off hand, but if you take a post-it note, press the sticky bit over the plug, then pres it hard with your finger without moving or sliding it, you can then just take the post-it note and measure the mark on it to get the size (assuming you don't have a collection of allens to just try and need to know the size to buy the right sized allen wrench).
