Your vehicle’s manual transmission fluid is more important than you think. Though it doesn’t have to be changed as often as the motor oil, fresh gearbox fluid keeps your stick-shift transmission from overheating and tearing itself apart.

That is why Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained is here to show you how to change your vehicle’s transmission fluid right in your garage.

Since manual transmissions do their jobs through a lot of metal-to-metal contacts they need lubricant to soften touch points and keep everything running smoothly. Over time, that fluid gets dirty and worn out, needs to be changed.

The first step is getting your vehicle in the air and sitting level. This lets you access the transmission and ensures you will fill it to the correct level.

Next, find a fill plug on the upper portion of the transmission housing and unscrew it. Then, find a drain plug, and undo that to drain the gearbox. Make sure to have the catch pan ready.

After everything’s drained, reinstall the drain plug with the new washer, and refill the transmission, using the transfer pump to get the fluid up into the filler hole. Replace the fill plug with the new washer, clean up any excess fluid, and boom, you’re done. Pretty easy right?

Fenske put together the thorough video walking us through how to change the transmission fluid on his personal Honda S2000. It goes into great detail, so if you are getting ready to swap out your own car’s fluid, it’s the must-watch.
