Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.
Most transmissions didnt have a dip stick. There is a drain plug in the trans pan and another plug higher up in the pan which is the filler plug. Fill until oil trickles out, put plug in loosely, then start and run through gears. Remove fill plug and top up level while engine still running and make shure vehicle is on flat surface when topping up level until oil trickles out fill plug again.
see some similar posts on Jackaroo, Trooper, Rodeo, Frontera all had similar set up, similar trans.

Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top. Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick. In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.
Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube. You'll Need a Funnel that Fits inside the Transmission Dip Stick Tube. This Should Resolve your Question. Please Vote and That actually sends me How Well I have Helped You. OH Look Towards the middle to the Back of Your Engine to Locate Your Tranmission Dip Stick: From the WYOCWBOY
If it is a hydraulic clutch, find the reservoir and top it up with fluid and then you will have to find the bleeder screw and bleed the clutch. It is the same process as bleeding brakes. Not sure on these vehicles where the bleed screw is but in most cases it is on the transmission. It can be easily found if you follow the line from the clutch master cylinder to the transmission it should be close to where the line goes into the transmission.
the bottom hose came off,or broke thats where ur problem started, the engine over heated and only cracked head didnt seize the engine if u had stopped when the anti freeze or the temp light showed wouldnt have damaged engine, u wrote ran perfectly for month so enginge was good and in law installed correctly,problem was lower hose and not stopping vehicle before extensive damage was done
How long have you had it, and has he never heard of the Lemon Law? You have protection for this, if it hasn't been too long.
That tube should be attached to either fitting right below rad cap, or it's the overflow side of your return bottle and should be routed downward toward ground. If coming from top of bottle, it should go to rad cap area. Top up your coolant in rad with engine running and heat turned on & let it run for 10-15 with cap off , then put cap on.
I am not sure on Land Rovers but to check automatic transmission fluid the car needs to be running, warmed up, and on level ground. Search the rear sides of the engine bay for a dipstick that usually has an orange or red handle on it. Once you find it the fluid should be red, if it is you have the right dipstick. Yellow handles are usually oil dipsticks so be careful. Your user manual in the glove box should have pictures of where its located.
