It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.

Manual or automatic? If it is automatic it should have a dipstick (like the oil dipstick) that will let you check it. It will most likely be red and if I remember correctly on the passenger side of the car. If it is a manual checking your transmission isn't so easy. I've heard it said that your transmission fluid is supposed to be changed every 50,000 miles or so but if it is still red and you're not having problems with it you should leave it alone (in my experience changing it a lot of times will just cause problems). If it is manual the transmission has two plugs on the side of the transmission (passenger side if I remember correctly). They both have a square insert in the middle of them that is the perfect size for the end of a regular size socket wrench. The plug on top is the "fill plug" and the one below is the "drain plug". First you remove the drain plug and let the fluid drain completely and be sure to clean the plug before putting back in. It should be magnetic to collect metal shavings that have ground up in the transmission. Once the transmission has been drained and the drain plug inserted back in. Remove the "fill plug" and use a fluid transfer pump to pump the new transmission fluid from your container up into your transmission. When fluid starts to overflow from the fill plug you know the transmission is full and you can now put the fill plug back in. Be sure to be clean and check for any leaks around the transmission. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need some more help. I probably made the process of changing your transmission fluid seem complicated but it really isn't so don't worry. Good luck!
