I can't seem to find any dipstick or anywhere else to fill my tranny fluid. Is there a fill hole on the tranny itself? Anyone know where to fill the fluid from? And what kind of fluid works well?

Assuming this is an automatic, look for the tranny dipstick near the firewall at the back of the engine.

Dipstick should have a red cap on it.

Standing at the grill, look just left of the valve cover and down a bit.

At least on my car, you turn the red cap a bit (should have an "open" arrow directing you), then pull it up...use a clean, lint free cloth.

When engine is cold, my level is below the min line. When you are up at normal operating temp (80 C roughly), the level should be at or very near the max. So check it with the engine running at normal temp, not cold and hot, just normal temp.

Ah, found it, thanks for your help, it was next to the valve cover as you stated. It was camoflaged, cause apparently they used black for the dipstick cap color.
