long story short is the transmission fill plug is rounded off and not even the "easy out" for messed up bolt head will do the trick. someone suggested i just remove the VSS and fill the transmission though the VSS hole. from diagrams it looks like i wont be able to remove the VSS from the outside of the transmission. so im going to have it towed to a shop and have them torch off the fill plug bolt. anyone have any thoughts? thanks for your input!

Your VSS should have 3 bolts on it. I believe 2 that hold the sensor/connector to the gear shaft, and 1 that holds it to the trans. Remove the one that holds it to the trans and it will lift right out.

Fill the trans with a funnel with a hose on it, replace the sensor, and do burnouts.

Remove intake air tube, remove 1 10mm bolt from vss, pull it out, stick in long transmission funnel and dump in 2 quarts. Rock on.

Or fill from the vent tube?




I have one question. Why was the fill bolt so tight?

when i got the car the bolt was rounded off some what. so i would just use vise grips and a hammer to remove and install it. now its stuck and i have learned my lesson. XD

Weld a nut on top of it and wrench it off

You get it off this time, replace it they are only $2 at the dealer.


You can fill from the vent tube, the VSS or reverse switch.
