How to check/fill transmission fluid without a lft

I want to check/fill transmission fluid for a 2000 vette. The owners manual shows a diagram without explaining where it is at on the vehicle. Can I do this without using a lift or jacking the car up. I have a leak at the rear seal and I want to use an additive to seal it.

Look back by the flywall but before using any additive to seal a leak use a dye first to find out where the exact location of the leak is because sometime it looks like it is the seal but it is the backend of the valve cover gasket

How many quarts does a 2000 Hyundai Sonata take to fill the transmission fluid

That would depend on the transmission in the vehicle (they can be different with different models/options) and whether you are doing a "wet" or "dry" fill. A "dry" fill will use more fluid since you have to allow for fluid to fill the torque converter, which does not drain during a regular transmission fluid oil/filter change. The import thing is to not overfill! Always put a bit less in than called for, then run the car, putting transmission thru all the gears. Then recheck level and add as needed. Most vehicles require the transmission fluid check be done with the engine running. Check your owners manual for specifics.

How much damage(if any) will putting in tranny fluid cause without the engine running??

Not sure why you ask the question. You probably check the trans fluid level with the fluid warmed up and engine running. If you have an Owner's Manual, check there for the procedure. If you don't have one, I suggest checking the level as I show above, then add fluid if needed in small amounts with the engine running, check the level after adding every SMALL amount (you do not want to overfill the trans. and stop adding when it's between add and full.

Kia optima 2008 how many quarts transmission fluid and what type

This info should be in your owners manual.
The 4 speed trans shows a total fill of 8 quarts and the 5 speed shows a total fill of 10 quarts. Just changing the filter should be half that amount for each transmission.
There are trans fluids for multi-brands of import cars, Dextron may also work.
Again, check your owners manual or look on the dipstick.

Check trans fluid level on 2000 malibu with no dipstick

There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level. Transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out the bolt hole. Typical GM engineering. Just check the owners manual. It should tell you something about this.

Where is the transmission fluid filled

Check your owner's manual. That will usually tell you everything you need to know on where to fill your fluids at and what types of fluids you should be using in your vehicle.

Sealed transmission.. where do I input new fluid?

Typically you use a funnel and pour it down the dipstick tube.
It is a sealed transmission. The owners manual advises never to change the transmission fluid but, if you just want to do it, there is a fill plug on the side of the transmission itself. The drain plug is a two-stage design also. Of course, you will take it out in order to drain the fluid. However, after snugging it back in, back it out just a little. This opens the fluid check tube inside without draining any fluid. Fill from the fill hole until it starts to drip out of the drain plug. Tighten the plug back all the way, replace the fill plug, and you are done.
