I have been around and around this with the "experts" at the Stealership and I am looking at the same diagrams that they have. They are wrong!! Everybody says that it is a 3/8" square drive plug, NorthEast of the driver's side CV axle but there is no such plug there. What you want to do is locate the speedo cable! (well sort of) These cars don't really have a true mechanical speedo cable. What they have is a little drive gear that creates a signal and sends that signal through a wire to the electronic speedometer. On the Esteem you will see a black plug with wires going to it, right behind that bracket that holds the two shift linkage cables. Think of it above the differential. Just look at the shift cables and look right behind the bracket that holds those cables. There is a 10mm bolt holding the plug in place. You'll need a very long extension. Once that small bolt is freed, you can pop that black plug and wires right out. On the end of the plug will be a plastic gear, it should be oily. I believe the gear case holds about 4.2 pints/2.1 quarts. Good luck!

SOURCE: How to fill trans fluid
There is no dipstick fitted for s type jag auto box. The only way to add fluid is via the level plug towards the rear of the gearbox. This is better entrusted to a garage to carry out as the level settings are dependant on fluid temperature etc with certain engine loadings and air con on. The zf 5 box also uses a special oil. Hope this helps - good luck.

That vehicle has no dipstick. There are two plugs on the transmission pan. The lower one drains the fluid, the higher one is for the fluid level. When you open the upper plug and the drivetrain is warmed up, fluid should be level (close) to the bottom of the plug hole. Inotherwords, a small amount spilling out when you open the plug indicates that the transmission is full. This is also the hole that is used for adding fluid.
Good luck from Detroit, MI.
