SOURCE: replacing transmission fluid
If it is automatic you put fluid in through the dip stick tube for the tranny.If it is standard you put oil in through the fill plug on the upper side of the tranny.Hope this helps

SOURCE: add transmission fluid
On 91 vehicles there's a 17mm allen screw on the side towards the left front wheel. Open it add the oil there on a level surface and fill till oil reaches the hole and starts coming out. DO NOT FILL OIL FROM THE TOP where what seems to be a plug. It's actually the timing marks and houses the clutch. Put oil there and you'll need a new clutch.

the reason only main dealers should perform this operation is that the atf has to be over 80 degrees celcius to obtain a true level reading. you should be able to check it yourself, you will need to give the car a good run, putting plenty of load on the gearbox. (ie. rapid accelerations, uphill etc) as this will heat the fluid to the desired temperature range. then get under the gearbox, and there should be a 5mm hex key bolt in the gearbox sump. remove the plug, if oil comes out then the transmission is over full. if no fluid comes out then you will need to top it up. this is accomplished by removing a black and red blanking plug where the dipstick should be. just top up the fluid till it drips out of the level hole. ( PLEASE NOTE, THE VEHICLE MUST BE LEVEL TO OBTAIN CORRECT LEVEL, ALSO VEHICLE MUST BE IDLING IN EITHER PARK OR NEUTRAL AS THIS ALLOWS THE FLUID FLYWHEEL TO BE FULL ASWELL )
