If it is not under the bonnet in the engine bay and clearly marked so you can find it then that model and engine does not have an auto trans dip stick and filler tube. The auto transmission has to be filled by removal of a filler plug on the side of the transmission and accessed from under the vehicle.
you should find a dipstick similar to the engine dipstick under the hood, you check the oil level the same way as the engine oil, but with the engine running at normal running temperature & the shifter in "P" or "N".....hope this helps......cheers.
there is no need to blead air from the gearbox or transfer, or diff's
first the transfer and gearbox are together but use their own oils and are changed seperatly
remove the drain plug to drain, refit then refill through the filler flug, the correct level is thesame as the filler so when starts draining from the filler hole its full. car needs to be level/flat ground when doing this.
if its auto there will be a tube for checking the level, at the back of the engine under the bonnet. auto trans oil does need the engine running to check for correct level.
remove drain plug with the engine off, refill approx same amount of oil in to the dipstick tube, then start the engine, select each gear for a couple of secconds then back to neutral, check level with engine still running. adjust level if needed.
It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
