Question about 1983 Toyota Corolla Tercel
If you have a manual transmission, that was gear oil. There is a fill plug that you must remove, and then fill with the pointy end of the gear oil bottle with a piece of hose stretched over the tip (there is no fill tube). If you have an automatic transmission, that was automatic transmission fluid coming out of the differential. This has a separate fill hole very similar to the manual transmission's. In this case, I've used a funnel with a piece of hose stretched over the end. In both cases, the fluids should be added when the car is on a level surface because the fill holes are positioned such that oil spills out when capacity is reached. If you don't have a manual to show you exactly where all these plugs are located and which types of oils to use, go to www.autozone.com, enter your car's information, and you can find an online manual that tells you everything you need to know. Also, this might be a good time to change those fluids (I imagine if you've gone through CV joints, there are quite a few miles on those fluids). If you decide to change them, make sure you can get the fill plug off before you pull the drain plug as to not end up with an empty transmission that you can't fill.
