I have a 97 S10 with a 4.3l vortex. My Chilton manual says I have a manual 5 speed NV3500. I can't for the life of me figure out where the fill plug is. It is not where the book says it is. It's not where the owners manual says it is. Can anyone help me?

If it's anything like the nv1500, there's a 1/2" square plug on the driver's side of the transmission.

Turns out my transmission does not have any drain/fill plugs. ( I would put a picture up but it won't let me)

Can you get a pic of the bottom. Also, is it really light. Like could you pick it up and carry it around all day? Cause that’s how a t5 is. I know they put them behind 4cyl trucks.

It's a bit over 100lbs. Transmission code is M50 so I know it's nv3500.

Ya it’s a 2wd nv3500. Everything I’ve read says the drain is on the bottom, and the fill is on the pass side, toward the front. Also make sure you use synchromesh fluid.
