Transmission is slipping. Is this a sealed unit? Where do I add fluid or change the transmission filter? Is this something I can do myself?
Your transmission is probably failing. There is an oil drain plug at the bottom of the transmission and an oil level plug on the side casing of the transmission with specific instructions for checking the fluid level. The oil pan is actually on top of the transmission, labor time shows an hour to remove and replace gasket. 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 subrcription 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
