There will be a plug on top rear of the transmission close to where it bolts to the engine. Use a funnel to pour it in with. Don't expect promising results, though.

It is most likely a transmission slip, there is not much you can do to fix it your best bet is Lucas Stop Leak. While your transmission isn't leaking this will lessen the slip a bit. You will have to consider replacing the transmission after this one goes.

not usually,sometimes you get lucky and it will for a while. most of the time if a transmission has started to slip the damage is already done.

A minor slip or occasional slip can either be reduced or eliminated by purchasing a bottle of 'LUCAS' brand transmission slip reducer. The reason transmissions may slip is because a small piece of grit, metal, sand, etc....has entered inside the case where the sensitive gears are working. This 'thunk' or 'clank' happens when the transmission gears (arms / rods) get stuck then slip loose. hear the clunking sound when they break free from the bind the foreign object has caused. LUCAS helps to keep things slippery. Its about $11-$14 in most auto parts stores. They make a myriad of other wonderful products for your car and I've used 3 of them and have improved both performance and gas mileage both.

worst case, transmission is slipping and its turning before the gear catches. try lucas transmission stop slip if so. also you could need motor mounts, if your mounts are bad when the transmission goes into gear it moves the engine first and will also make a thud type of sound. take the car to your local tech and have them inspected.
