Manual transmission has no dipstick.I think it's that SOME of the Focuses (I don't know which models--all of the ones i Had, had the dip stick) didn't have the dipstick for the trans. I know that in the manual it will say something along the lines of "if equipped" when referring to the dipstick.
Nope! Dry clutch but the tranny has 1.9 qt of oil in it, used only for lubrication - it is a manual transmission (actually kind of like two transmissions and two clutches - one for 1, 3, and 5 the other for 2, 4 and 6). [loveff]My understanding is the new Focus auto is a dual clutch dry trans. No fluid at all.
