Hope we are all doing well after Cinco de Mayo and are either fully recovered or recovering

On the other hand I am a bit confused about my 86 fiero GT Manual 4 speed muncie. I have read on a few forums that there is a place to check the fluid but I can't seem to find it. There is no dip stick so im assuming you have to remove a sensor or a plug to find it.
I read about the fluid to use but what do you personally use?
Any help regarding this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Save yourself a possible headache and don't pull the VSS out of the transmission. Use the fill plug on the side of the transmission to refill it instead as noted in the third post of the provided link.

Does the shot glass of stp oil treatment work well on the Muncie, I will be replacing the fluid come summertime. I heard Rodney suggest this shot glass of stp oil treatment for the getrag, but I have a Muncie.
Thanks

In all honesty those "treatments" are more of a gimmick.

If you feel the need to, by all means go ahead but I doubt it will make much of a difference.

The fluid that is put into the transmission is already of high quality so by putting treatment
in your more or less just putting more of the same in there.

If I recall correctly the "high quality" fluid is 5w30. Guys usually switch it to synchromesh, which wouldn't require a treatment.
