Generally there is a plug that you remove and fill to the bottom of the plug hole.

    It should be around 1/3 of the way up the pump body. Usually it is a square headed pipe plug, but sometimes it is and allen head plug that fits in flush with the pump housing. Could you take several picture from different angles of the pump body if you can't find it.?

Ac Gas keeps leaking..

It seems no one has tried to find a leak, should not refill without leak checking. Where there is a refrigerant leak, some residual oil will appear, refrigerant and oil circulate and move together. The system should be cleaned so that any new oil leaking will mark the leaking area or spot when leak testing produces nothing. When no leaks are detected, a dye can be used to mark the leaking area.
Leaks are common to develop on joints where seals are present and where hose is crimped to solid tubing. I don't recommend leak sealer additive into the system.

We have a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire SE with a 2.4L motor. Yesterday we noticed there is oil in the coolant reservoir, but no antifreeze in the oil. Got any suggestions?

Flush the coolant system and refill then fun and see if it appears again, it could just be from the leak you had.

These are sealed oil heaters and do not require refilling, if yours is leaking then it is bad and should be disposed of. They should not use oil or leak oil ever.

Milky appearance on the oil cap

Generally that means water in the oil. Is the oil on the dipstick the same color? If so, it could potentially be something very bad, such as a leaking head gasket or coolant passage that is allowing antifreeze to leak into the engine when under pressure. If the milky appearance is just on the refill cap and the oil on the dipstick looks normal, then you could just have a small amount of water from condensation. That can happen if the vehicle sits a long time without being used.

My brake lights keep burning out not long after i replace them

I'm not sure what kind of bulbs this model uses, but if they are halogen, you must install them without touching them with your hands (the oils on your skin damage them) use latex gloves if necessary. If they are standard bulbs, make sure you use dielectric grease in the socket to limit corrosion. If the bulbs appear milky , you may have a lens leaking water onto the bulb. After all of these things, have the voltage that the alternator is putting out checked to make sure it isn't putting out too much voltage.

Gear oil leaking out

I have or thought I have posted you a solution. Here goes again. Unfortunately you cannot refill it unless you remove transmission from the washer and then you'll have to open it up to refill it. It's very doable if you are somewhat mechanicaly inclined. Good Luck
