Front Diff dipstick question
Ok, so i have a small slow leak from my front differential. and i noticed today when i pulled out the dipstick, that there is no marks for full and low... I'm not sure if there is suppoed to be, but i would imagine so. The stick almost looks broken off at the end. There is a blue ring on it and about 2 inches maybe a little bit more and then it just ends. is this normal???

The 5MT uses the same fluid for the front diff and the trans/gear

ok... that helps somewhat, do you know if the dipstick is supposed to have an F or L ? or some kind of marking?

Look it up in your manual. It's been a while since I've messed with a 5mt on your car.

Don't quote me... but close to 3.7~ quarts.

Take a picture and post it here. If you're saying it's only about 2" below the plastic joint thing it sounds about right. I could always go measure mine, they probably haven't changed much since 02.
