Engine must be running to check the fluid level. Transmission should be hot, not cold. Then remove plug. Add transmission fluid until it comes out of plug hole. If the engine is not running and you remove the plug, you will lose a lot of transmission fluid.
Remove the Transmission dip stick and use a funnel to add fluid in the same tube the dip stick comes out of. With the vehicle running on level ground and warm, remove the dipstick and see where the fluid level is at before you add anything. If it is between the 2 marks on the dip stick, normally marked Hot and Cold, then your fluid level is good. If it is at the bottom mark add fluid, about a pint will do, to bring the fluid between the marks. Then see if you can get it to shift.
The power steering fluid goes in the power steering pump which is on the drives side of the motor below the alternator.It is black and has a twist off cap.The cap is a dip stick type.It has levels which will have a hot and cold level.If the engine is cold fill to the cold level.If it is hot then fill to hot level.Hope this helps.
I would recommend you NOT adjust the cable. First of all - check your fluid level. If any of the cables need adjusting they could have an affect on other things, so any adjustment should only be done by a qualified tech. If your fluid level is correct check to see if it has the proper color - could be clear and could be a red color depending on specification. See if it has a burned smell. If the fluid is at the correct level have it inspected by a transmission shop.
The proper fluid level is marked on the dip stick. With the engine running and in park, raise the hood and remove the dip stick from the autotrans filler tube. With a clean rag, wipe down the stick and then place the dip stick all the way back in the tube again, and then pull it out once more.
Holding the stick level, you can now read what the fluid level is.
If you add any fluid, do so in small amounts, such as a half a pint at a time.
Do not add fluid with engine running.
