Manual transmissions don't use 'transmission fluid', so they don't have a 'cap' like autos do. Usually there is a bolt on the side of the transmission, sort of like a drain plug, where you add oil. The hole also acts as the level check: you add gear oil until it starts to run out the hole, that's how you know you have enough.

You can buy a Haynes or Chilton manual that will have good info on basic stuff, with pictures and diagrams of all the important parts.

There probably isn't one. on a manual transmission there is a filler plug about half way up the trans axle.the plug may be male or female.remove the plug and add gear oil (not automatic trans. fluid) 90 wight or what ever Toyota recommends until it is level with the bottom of the hole the replace the plug and you got it.

For re filling and or topping off, Fluid additions are done thru the dipstick tube for the transmission. This stick is usually found between the firewall and engine.
