Default 2001 SC2 Coupe- where to put in transmission fluid?

This project is weeks old.

Had to disconnect the transmission fluid line from the radiator, and in process lost the transmission fluid.

Now everything is back together, but I don't know where to put IN the transmission fluid.

I see where to put in engine oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid, coolant/antifreeze... but where for the transmission fluid?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It goes in the dipstick tube on an automatic. They make special funnels for it.

Pour slowly in small amounts.

If you pour in a large amount - pressure builds up and it will burp back - puking ATF directly on the exhaust manifold....

Just add Lucas additive. It comes with the special pipe on the bottle that fits the dipstick. And you need Lucas additive anyways, don't you?

If you believe in that sort of thing! I'd rather believe in extraterrestrials.

Well, it sort of worked for me. Before I had to replace the valve body
But I also believe in the radiator stop-leak and engine gasket repair fluids
