the tranny is the transmission and to check the fluid level there is a plug on the side of the transmission to check the fluid level,
it's in the middle of the transmission some take a 3/8 rachet to put into the square hole to remove the plug in order to check and fill the transmission with gear oil
You need to take out the bolts holding the cover on but leave 2 in it one on eather side then pop it open with a flat head screw driver make sure u got an oil pan under it first . Then replace your gasket and put the cover back on, as for filling it there is a bolt on the front side of the axle and its usually a square hole that a 3/8 drive rachet will fit in u stick the rachet in it and take it out. Then you fill it up with the suggested gear oil and the specified amount.
there is a bolt (sometimes a square plug or a square cutout for a 1/2 inch drive rachet head) attached to the 'pumpkin', higher up-you remove that and fill there-fill until it starts to run out, then it is full.
The belt will run around a tensioner pully some where near the top or side of the pully system and you will notic the frount of it has a square hole in the center of it ,that is the size of your 3/8 rachet or might be the size of a 1/2 inch rachet the square where you attach the socet to,well that fis in that little square hole on pully once in there you can turn the pully enough to loos the belt,,like a spring action
on the differental, usually on the side next to the driveshaft you should see a plug with a square head inset, a ratchet with a short 3/8's extension will fit right in this square, unscrew the plug and remove it, you can stick you pinky finger in this hole to see if you can touch the fluid, if not you need to fill it with 85W gear oil,add gear oil until it just does start to run out
I asume you are talking about the transfer case, bolted to rear of the trany you will see to big blots the top is the fill and the bottom is the drain and then the the front and rear differentals have fills also on the side of the meatball there a square plug that is removed with the end of a rachet it fills there and same as the transfer case you need to fill umtil it starts to come out fill hole then its fill, hope this helps.
Don't know what kind of transmission you are dealing with-but I suspect it's a manual trans. To check gear oil level-crawl under car and look for a "plug"-it usually has a four sided wrench flat-or-it will have a "square" hole that will have the same size as a ratchet wrench's "drive" (3/8" or 1/2"). Remove the plug-gently insert a pinky finger in it-pointing downward. Pull finger out-if there is oil on finger-you are probably fine. If it was a bit of a reach-little oil on finger-you may need to add gear oil.Insert a hose into plug hole-run it up to outside of car and pour gearoil into it using a funnel. When oil starts spilling out of plug hole-you have enough oil added to trans.Gear oil is thick-it will take awhile for it to flow thru hose-heating oil up helps a bit.
On the front side of the rear differential (drivers side I think, maybe passenger's) there's a plug with a square indentation in it. Just big enough to fit a 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet head into it. Turn it counter-clockwise to remove it. It's a little over half way up because that's where the fluid should be. Make sure you're on even/level ground. Gear oil can be added most times by cutting the tip off the nipple on the bottle, slip a small hose over it, invert and squeeze the bottle.
The fill plug is on the left hand side of the diff casing just rearwards of where the left hand drive shaft exits the gearbox. You will need a 10mm square drive (a 3/8" ratchet is close, but you have to make sure it stays in the square) to undo it. The box should be filled to this level.
