The filler plug is on the driver's side of the tranny. It looks exactly like the drain plug on the bottm of the tranny.

Automatics use the dipstick tube, manuals do not have a dipstick.

Yes, you will add it through the hole in the side of the MANUAL transmission once the plug is removed. You may need a ratchet with an extension to remove the plug. Then you will have to devise a method for getting the fluid into the transmission which can be very tricky. I use the plastic container the fluid comes in plus a nipple that comes on a bottle of rear end lubricant and a section of clear plastic hose that is available at a hardware store. Then you can squeeze the bottle to get the fluid into the hole. When the fluid oozes back out its full. Quickly screw the plug back in place! Its messy and not convenient but that's the way GM designed it.

My 97 chevy s-10 pickup is a 5 speed with a 4.3 engine and our truck is stuck in first gear. Should we buy a new one or have someone look at it?

If it's stuck in 1st gear you probably need a new transmission. I'd fix it. A used tranny at a salvage yard is probably about $250.00 and not that hard to replace.

I have a 90 toyota pickup i noticed that i lose power when i shift to 5th gear, it is lifted 4x4 when i went home there was gear fluid leaking out somewhere under from the transfer case please help thanks

Old cars do bad things, transfer case leaks don't slow em down unless the fluild is low or gone and been run dry a few times. Lifted means to me big tires The stock gear ratio and the bigger tires can overgear the truck. Fifth gear is now too high. Or this problem just accored and it was pulling high gear and now even thoght the tires are fully inflated and the brakes aren't dragging anf the engine is not missing and A bubba tunr-up hasn't set the timing too low or too high , Maybe the exhaust is clogged up or the converter (exhaust) is. Auto tranny not likly to be 5 speed so a manuel is likely, Is the clutch slipping? Lots of blnks open on you question V6 or 4, Size of tires and when dir the problem start afer you raised it? Blocks alot more wind raised and the stock setup with stock tires is geared super tall as in there ann't no more.

Where the speed sensor plugs into the tranny on the passenger side of 98 ford windstar 3.0, the pickup where the sensor plugs into the trans with the shaft and what looks like a magnectic pickup, the shaft...

Normally the Part on the transmission is a female connector and the part you got out is from the cable. just replace the cable. However, this connector on the transmission should be replaceable as well but will require a Transmission technician to do it.
