Manual transmissions dont have dip sticks. And if the 94 civic's transmission is anything like the 7thgen's, it shouldnt be that hard.

Re: tranny fluid?

Get under the car and you should see two bolts on the trans. The lower bolt is for draining the fluid, the upper for adding fluid. Add fluid (on level ground) until it starts coming out of the bolt hole. There is no dipstick for manual trans.

Re: tranny fluid?

Two quarts sounds about right. I'd say absolutely no more than three.
