I believe that this is where mine was filled from.
My mechanic used a plastic bottle with a flexible tube on the cap and squeezed the bottle to force the fluid out of the bottle and into the transmision.

I think there are pictures in your owner's manual. I remember reading it one time.

I have been under my car a couple of times now. The fill connection is labeled on the driver side of the tranny (same side but lower than the CAGS solenoid) and has a wired transducer (temperature sensor??) mounted in the connection.

The best way I've found to fill trannys and such is like this:

1) get bottle of lube
2) punch a hole in the lid big enough for a small hose (vinyl tubing works good)
3) put the tube in the hole, and drop it to the bottom of the bottle
4) punch a small (less than 1/4") hole in the side of the bottle near the top
5) take your air nozzle from the compressor, and stick it in there, and spray high pressure air in it
6) enjoy not tearing your muscles up trying to move 75-90 into the car

Definitely an engineering solution conceived by a logical mind to a problem !! Cool /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif! Perhaps I won't wait so long to change mine for the first time.
