Re: can't locate opening to add transmission fluid to...
Since My Scion XA is Made by Toyota I figure that there can't be a Whole lot of Difference in Motors. Same 4 Cylinder Toyota Motor that they use in yours. Does not have a Tranny Dipstick or Place to fill it. Dealer Service Item Only. I know it sucks.

With the car on level ground, the engine on, and the transmission in park or neutral, check your automatic transmission fluid (ATF) using the dipstick located in the engine bay (procedure: Take the dip stick out, wipe it off, put it back in completely, take out to check level). If the fluid is low, fill with ATF fluid through the same tube the ATF dip stick came from. Caution: It's easy to put ATF in, but difficult to take out. Pour a small amount in and check before pouring more.
For automatic transmission: Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping). How to check oil in automatic transmission in Audi A6 1997: At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking: 1. Requirements for check: 1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface. 1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode. 1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied. 1.4. Engine idling. 1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF. 1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test. 1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives. 1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping) 1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling. 2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals. 3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg). 4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible. 5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle. 6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan. 7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. 8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct. 9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole. NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening. CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off. 10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.
i presume that you have an automatic transmition, to check the oil you must ghet the car on service, is trichy job and the oil in the ghear box must be replaced at the exacly specified quantyty and type of oil. in that time you must replace alsothe filter of the gear box oil.
If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point
The type best used is "Genuine Subaru Automatic Transmission Fluid Type-HP or IDEMITSU ATF HP. you add it through the dip stick hole. You may also wish to add a transmission leak oil to swell the gaskets and stop the leak add it the same way if you choose to use it. both of these should be available at your local auto parts store like NAPA. Raz,...
You can drain and fill your trans. It will take 2.5 -3.0 quarts of DEX III trans fluid....goes in the fill tube. Or you can get said transmission flushed which changes all fluid including torque converter.....about 15 quarts. Way more thorough.
Actually, on the manual tranny its more like a thin grease. There is a plug located on the side of the transmission, When you remove the plug, you should be able to stick your pinky in the hole and get a little grease on your finger. The fill line is to the bottom of the plug.
engine needs to be warm to check fluid. needs to be in park and then you check fluid level, pull dip stick and wipe off then reinsert and remove for corect reading, I can't help you with capacities but they should me in you owners manual.

If you are unable to locate the dipstick, it is possible that you have one of the "sealed" transmissions. It would not have dipstick, and would probably need professional help to service. Although I doubt yours is this model.
