    I assume you have located the transmission dipstick, and that is how you know it needs fluid -- is that correct? If so, the fluid goes down the dipstick tube.

SOURCE: How do you add transmission fluid?

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

If you are always adding fluid, that means you have a leak somewhere. Put a piece of clean cardboard under suspect areas under car overnight to check for obvious leaks. The one hard leak to find is when the trans cooler in the radiator is leaking internally. Open your radiator cap (only when cool) and see if it looks oily inside. If so, you need to replace your radiator, and I suggest you flush your cooling system at the same time.

I want to add automatic transmisson fluid to my 1993 mercury sable... but can't figure out where to put it?

It's time to buy an automatic transmission funnel, or get really creative!An automatic transmission funnell is about 2 feet long or more, has a regular funnel with a really long neck.
The hose and neck are small.
You put the fluid in the tube that holds the dipstick with your special funnel.
Creative means you make your own funnel with a regular funnel and some small plastic or rubber tubing.
Be blessed.
