There is a large dipstick that is painted red-you need to remove the dipstick and put a long funnel in the tube, fill from there.

Where do you add the transmission fluid for a 2010 chrysler town & country on the engine is it where it says dealer only

The automatic transmission dip stick and filler tube have been removed from many later model auto transmissions now so you cannot check fluid levels yourself or add fluid easily to these units.

I assume you have the V6 engine and if you check the engine bay you will find no transmission dip stick and filler tube there. In these cases you have to add fluid by pumping fluid in after removing a filler plug on the case of the transmission from under the vehicle and it needs to be perfectly level when this is done.. There is a specific procedure for this which varies from unit to unit because you need to ensure the transmission is not over filled.

Unless you know what you are doing and use the correct filling procedure this is not a do it yourself task and it is best done with the car perfectly level up on a workshop lift/hoist.

I blew a top radiator hose.It has transmission fluid mixed in with the radiator fluid. what would cause this?

The transmission fluid cooler has a primary cooler that runs thru the radiator. They are know to sometimes develop cracks in the tubing which releases trans fluid into coolant. Replacing the radiator and flushing the coolant will usually put you back on the road.

Grinding noise

I believe what you're saying is that after your car has been in park and you put it in gear to drive it makes a grinding noise for about 30 miles. I recommend checking you transmission fluid level and adding fluid as needed. You should do this fluid check while the engine is warm and car is idling. Since you have an 88 you probably have a lot of miles on it. I've had very good luck using Slick 50 High Mileage Automatic Transmission Treatment. A bottle of this costs around $15. If none of this works it may be time to take it into the shop or trade it in.
