Answers :

You have to locate the fill hole on the passenger side about 2/3 way up the transmission. Its an allen wrench resessed bolt. Take that bolt out and pump your fluid in that way.
\015\012OR
\015\012If equipped with a drain plug that has a resevuor depth gage. With the vehicle running remove the bolt in the center of the drain plug. if fluid pours out you are overfilled if it just trickles out you are right on, if nothing comes out pump fluid into this hole till it trickles out.
\015\012No easy way to do it on that tranny. probably 5r55w They are junk.
The only way possible is getting a small funnel, about one inch big or so, and pouring it into the transmission line where the trans stick comes from. It should be located in the back of the engine under the hood. The cap should either be red, yellow, or black and they will all say trans or have a decal that looks like an O. When you add make sure you use what the stick says. Probably Dexron VI. And when you add make sure the car is running and you run thru all the gears before checking the level in park. Happy motoring!
