View Full Version : Transmission Oil Fill Suzuki DD51T
06-25-2008, 12:40 PM
I unloaded 2 Suzuki's today from my container. Lucky for me the transmission fluid had to be emptied out of the vehicles. I cannot find the filler/check to add or check the fluid on both of these vehicles transmissions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I filled all the Diahatsu and Mitsubishi trucks I received with no problem. These suzuki's are just kickin my butt!:frustration: There is a small rubber plug a bit bigger than a pencil eraser near the top of the transmission however I do not think this is it. I have found one on the back of the transfer case, will this fill the transmission as well?

Thanks for replying Greg, However on the other suzuki my 3/8 extension is a little small for the hole and so is the ratchet. I have tried to crank on it but that sucker is in there tight! I am afraid I am going to strip it. I removed the other one no problem with my 3/8 but this one is being a pain. Any tips or tricks to get this stupid thing out would be awesome. Thanks again in advance!

I know what your talking about as I thought I saw some thead seal/lock on it when I got it out.
If it was me I'd put a little heat to the case around the plug and then spray with something like PB Blaster which should migrate into the threads and loosen it up.

I thought the exact same thing when I first tried to loosen those plugs on the DD51Ts. As Gred said, I soaked it good with PB Blaster and let it sit for a few hours. The next time I tried it (with a 3/8 rachet), it finally loosened up. Good luck.

I have a slow drip in my transmission, what type of oil should I use in it?

Great, my filler plug appears to be made into a 'round' fitting.
