Don't listen to the other guy, I own a 1990 1.8L mazda protege with a manual transmission. Yes it will make it easier to hoist it up. I am not going into extreme detail so as long as you know a little about cars this will be a great help.
on the transmission locate the drain plug, it will be on the bottom of the transmission. don't loosen it yet you want to make sure you can fill the transmission before you drain it. there is no fill plug, you have to fill the transmission through the hole the speedometre cable is attached to the transmission. the speedometre cable is straight up and down/vertical, it should be above the passenger side cv shaft coming out of the transmission.
remove the small bolt holding it in place and then pull it straight up and out of the transmission. now drain the transmission. put the drain plug back in and start filling, make sure not to overfill you are not supposed to fill it right full.
Make sure to check the fluid level as you fill, the transmission is at the right level when the gear oil is just at the top of the speedometre gear that is on the end of the cable that is inserted into the transmission.
I believe these transmissions take 75w 90.
Hope this helped you, and maybe future people who view this looking for help.

You will have to lift it up and look around the the bottom of the tranny there should be a plug that is in the side of the case in the middle of nowhere it wont be holding anything on but be careful if there is two take the one loose thats above the other one or you will get a shower in gear oil

Cannot find place to fill transmission oil


Don't know about your car, but a VW Rabbit I recently purchased has to have transmission fluid checked and filled from underneath the car. Seems to be the way of European transmissions. A pain and expensive. On mine, if you have a leak repaired or fluid added, make sure they change the filter, too.

Where is transmission fluid locted in a 1990 mazda protege


I would ask Standard or automatic since the vehicle came with both as an option but it really doesn't matter. The fluid is located in the Transmission itself. If you have an automatic there is a dip stick located near the firewall under the hood you can use to check the fluid level with. If it is a Standard or manual transmission you will have to locate the check fill plug on the transmission under the vehicle to check the fluid level with the end of your finger.
