Where do I add gear oil to the transmission. I can't figure out where to pour it in.

Do you

Standard 020 Transmission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaepz_9ad3Q

At the 32 second mark you will see the round hole where level is checked and fluid can be added.

A 17mm hex / allen bit is needed to remove the plug.

If automatic, the ATF level is checked and filled like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um28eu8BnGE

The automatic GEAR OIL is checked via the Speed Sensor in the Differential... remove the sensor and check level (sensor acts as dip stick).

Did the video help? Is it the 020 transmission?

If you have a 6cyl engine, then the filler / level plug is in a different location.
