How do you add automatic transmission fluid on a 2000 Subaru Forester?

Under the hood, on the driver's side near the back is the yellow transmission dipstick. If you know that you need transmission fluid, you have already located it. Make sure that you check the level with the engine running. Anyway, to answer your question, head on over to your auto parts store or Wal-Mart and get a funnel with a hose on it that is made to fill automatic transmissions. You put the fluid in the same tube as the dip stick occupies. (Remove the dipstick before filling but don't forget to put it back in when you're done.) Careful not to overfill (Difference between none on the stick and full is often less than a quart.) and use Dexron III. Good luck! --Ken
