If the vehicle is an automatic transmission locate the dipstick much like the oil dipstick. It should be close to the back of the engine I think on that particular truck the dipstick for the transmission is on the passenger side if it does have an automatic transmission in it. If it is let the vehicle warm up to normal temperature meaning after driving it or letting it sit and warm up pull the dipstick and check the fluid level on it also add oil using a funnel small enough to fit in the tube that you pulled the dipstick from add the correct transmission fluid slowly so you don't overfill it and with the vehicle running yes this is different from adding oil when you would turn the truck off. IF it is a manual transmission stick shift there isn't a dipstick and you have to add transmission fluid from a fill plug on the side of the transmission acessible from going underneath the vehicle. if you do this make sure the vehicle is turned off and the parking brake is set it soesn't matter if you leave the manual transmission in neutral or a gear when adding fluid to a manual transmission

I am not sure which engine you have on your 202 Grand Prix, but if you have the most common 3800 V6 this is where it should be. Look at the back of the engine compartment just to the left of the plastic master cylinder resevoir.
Here is a picture you can look at...
I hope I was able to assist you!

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there
