Use a transmission funnel and add thru the dipstick.
CHECKING FLUID LEVEL

Transmission/Transaxle

With vehicle parked on a level surface and engine at idle, move selector lever through all positions,
ending in Park. Remove dipstick, wipe clean and check fluid level. Fluid level should be between
ADD 1 PT. And FULL marks on dipstick. If vehicle has been driven for extended period of time at
high speed, in city traffic or pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be immediately
determined. Allow transmission/transaxle to cool for about 30 minutes after vehicle is parked, then
check fluid level.
Transfer Case

Remove fill plug. Check oil level. If level is not up to fill plug opening, add lubricant as necessary.
RECOMMENDED FLUID

Transmissions/transaxles and transfer cases use Dexron-III ATF.
FLUID CAPACITY

Transmission/Transaxle

The transmission/transaxle refill capacities given below are approximate. Correct fluid level should
always be determined by marks on dipstick, rather than by amount of fluid added. DO NOT overfill
transmission/transaxle. See appropriate REFILL CAPACITIES table.
NOTE: Transmission/transaxle must be at normal operating temperature (180-
200° F) when checking fluid level. One pint of fluid will raise level from
ADD 1 PT. Or.5L to FULL mark on dipstick with transmission/transaxle
at normal temperature. DO NOT overfill.
Dipstick is by the passenger side of the firewall.

Where is the dip stick located on the vehicle?

As I said, it's at the back of the engine on the passenger side. Look for a red handle.
