I called sears and they told me to check fluid level. I took out screw that had orange cap which said do not adjust.I did not see any other way to add fluid,I was not able to add much fluid at all. I am wondering what to do next?

take it to a shop and have them top it up so you can be sure you have the fluid you need to keep the car going as it should,,,,thats your safest bet

this t-bird has a 5r55s trans. it does not have a dipstick.
it has a "standpipe" type leveling system.
to check fluid level the tranmission has to be within 80-120 degree f.
take the plug out of the center of the fitting located on the bottom of the trans pan. it is a torx 30.
running in park the fluid should drip slower than a coffee pot.
to add you need a npt thread fitting the same as the little plug you removed. and attach a bottle of mercon5 and hose to it. squeeze the bottle to add fluid
then recheck it by letting it drain out to a fast dribble. then install the little plug back in. remember 80-120 degree fluid temp.

what fluid did you want to check? oil, coolant, transmission, brake? let me know and maybe i can help. the leak you currently see what color is the fluid? black or dark brown probably enigne oil. red or dark brown probably some kind of hydraulic fluid--trans or brake, yellow, green or blue with a sickly sweet smell is probably coolant. i haven't worked on a c230 but as far as i know all transmissions have a dipstick where you can check the level. check your owner's manual. make sure the car is warmed up such as after a short drive to properly circulate and check the trans fluid. some cars also require the transmission to be placed in a specific position ie neutral when being checked. again check your owners manual.
to the guy that was critical about your question, i hope he stays as dumb and ignorant about his/her car as he seems as with his/her attitude--just keep bringing it to servcie, that way i can keep making a lot of money out of you. i actually prefer an owner who knows a litlte some thing about their car and how it works--it makes the job easier in communicating to me what may be wrong and thus i can save them time and money. we both win. just don't tell me what you think it is--just tell me the symptoms are, as a professional it's my job to figure it out from there. hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Echo Check Engine
You should get the problem code ran at a shop or auto parts store. My moms 2003 Toyota Echo check engine light came on and it had a slight misfire, I replaced all the sparkplugs about $20 and no check light.
Hope this was helpful
