Furthermore, how do I find out what transmission I have?

Does it matter what transmission fluid you use?
Manual transmissions (MTs) use a variety of different fluids–from motor oil to ATF. They also take a specific type of transmission fluid that is designed for CVTs only. If your vehicle has a CVT, or if you're not sure what kind of transmission your vehicle has, check your owner's manual to find out.
