um.. you have a manual trans car and you are looking for the dip stick
.
manual trans cars do not have a dipstick. the level of the fluid is usually checked with a plug in the side of the trans. it would be accessed from underneith the car. i am not sure on the focus cause i have never looked

u need 2 get under the car (jacked up on stand i mean)...take an 8mm allen key and remove the upper tranny fluid bolt...its on the front facin side of the tranny case...then stick ur finger in there...if the fluid touches the bottom of ur finger, then its proper...lookin at the fluids color will tell u whats goin on in there. pink/red=good, dark colors/burnt colors/darker than ur engine oil=bad!!!

u'd b wise 2 move onto a better tranny fluid, like redline, mobil1 and many others.

hope this helps and welcome!!!
