You have a 5spd manual? If so, to check the level you gotta take off the fill bolt and stick your finger in there and feel where the level is at. Only way I know of..
Secondly, there is no fill warning lamp for the tranny..

There should be a fill and drain above and below each other.. take the top one out.. and feel around.. just like what is said above... that is correct.. only way to tell...
