Automatic transmission?
The transmission dipstick tube is where you add transmission fluid.
Use a medium funnel from your kitchen and buy a new one for your kitchen.... or... AutoZone has a "special" funnel that has a piece of rubber hose attached to the funnel end ($12)

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.

we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

The tansmission will change out the first time but when it get ready to change out the second time it will not like it slips out of gear then when i get off the gas it will kick back in first gear

check propper fluid specs, replace filter inside pan, make sure you have dex 3 or greater compatible fluid, make sure fluid is not burnt, some times when you flush the system, the internal bands have deposits that stick to them allowing them not to slip. when running a flush these deposits can rub off meaning extensive wear on your bands, easy solution, don't bag drive your ****

My Explorer will not change from 1st gear. What should I do first?

Have you checked the tansmission fluid?

Fluid may be low, or the filter may be plugged.

Or worst case your transmission needs rebuilt; this is most likely the case.

Where is the transmission fluid filler on ford fiesta 1996 auto

You need a medium-sized funnel; or a specially-designed transmission fluid filler funnel with a short hose attached to it (at Auto parts store for $5)... use a medium-sized funnel....

The filler tube is the same as the transmission dipstick tube.
Check the fluid level with the engine running, in park.
before adding fluid, turn off engine.

Insert the funnel into the tansmission dipstick tube, slowly pour in fluid (slowly!)..

In an emergency, you can make a funnel with paper or cardboard or sheet of plastic. ... and maybe duct tape...

Hope this helps!

How do you check tansmission fluid level in 2002 sunfire? 2.2 engine

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!
