    i think this car is ford model t style with an upper and lower fill bolt where you just fill until the fluid begins to come out the upper bolt.
    please consider checking out my Mirage related youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6c...IEViRFw/videos

    I don't go as far back as owning a Model T, but all of my vehicles have been manuals (starting with a 1978 Civic Wagon). None of them had dipsticks. Drain & fill hole is the only thing I have seen.

    The only vehicle that I can think of that had a dipstick in a manual trasmission was some cavalier/sunfires. It had a little stub of a dipstick. By the look of this one it may have been a pita to get to being towards the firewall near the speed sensor. (very bottom of this picture, you can kinda see the locking dipstick)

    That applies to the MT, but the CVT is a very different story.

    The communist-era rear-engined Skoda all had four speed MT with dipsticks. They needed them too, because in spite of two radial seals, oil would escape into the the rear brake drums. The engine was rearmost and mounted in driving direction, It was bolted onto the gearbox, that had two swinging axles with positive camber. I remember driving much slower than other traffic in a curve approaching a bridge, when the rear swung out of control. and overtook the front.

    that looks a little over, around 1 liter over the limit.
    The best way to check is by running the car and bringing it to optimum temp.
    Don't over fill and if you see bubbles on the stick its likely that you have over filled it.
