It's kinda late, but IIRC the trans holds about 2.3 quarts. 10w-30 engine oil is recommended.

If i was lying under my car 90 Coupe 5spd where would the bolt for the transmission oil be?? Just changed oil and forgot to check the oil had the car about a week.:D
there isnt a way to check really. you drain & refill.
the drain bolt is on the bottom of the tranny; 3/8" square head. filler plug is the big allen plug to on far end of the tranny. to access the filler plug you'll have to move some of the plastic guards in the wheel well...not to mention takking the wheel off

Yes, there is a way to check the transmission lube.

Here's the info you need.

What you REALLY need is a shop manual.

The drain plug is the socket-head bolt (10mm IIRC); the fill plug is the real big hex bolt further up. Use new sealing washers when replacing the plugs. The drain uses the same ones as the engine oil plug. The fill plug is a much larger sealing washer.
