    There are two plugs at the bottom of the transmission pan toward the front. The one toward the middle is the drain plug the one to the driver's side is what they call the "over fill plug".
    With the hand brake applied, engine running transmission fluid bellow 86 degrees F, move gear shift lever through all the gears, place in park, for three minute open the Over fill plug fluid should dribble out. if not add fluid. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
    and get an online repair manual subscription.
