Unfourtinately the transmission you have is an unservicable transmission. The only way to have the tranny fixed is to have it rebuilt or replaced. I regret to inform you of the bad news.

    Is the leak coming from off the shaft or inside the shaft?

1995 ford aspire trans axle fluid level

you should see a plug that looks different from the oil drain plug on the transmission pan, or near the bottom, on the side of the transmission.
remove, drain. You refill through the dipstick tube for trans fluid.
If it's a manual trans, there will be another plug higher up on the trans.
this one will be the fill plug.
Also on the manual trans, some people just remove the shifter and add fluid in the large hole up top.
Youtube and google will be your friend here.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it

Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing

1995 jetta 4 cyl. trans fluid coming from bell housing. possible converter seal? I was told it's necessary to remove engine and trans together. is this true? first vw repair for me. thanks

It is most like the front pump seal, or converter seal. You can remove the transmission without removing the motor. It's a tight fit.

How do I remove the Speedo cable in a 1995 ford aspire

I am not convinced that the speedo cable is a good place to add the fluid.
If auto trans , should have dipstick tube. If manual trans , should be plug on top , or half way up side of trans that can be unthreaded.
