If it is an automatic, then you add fluid the same place you check it. Purchase a filter desingned for this purpose. It is is a manual transmission you add fluid at th transmission. There is a plug near the top on the side. fill it until the lubricant runs out. It is now full. Check your owner's manual for the proper fluid or lube in case it is manual. Some use a lube and some use A/T fluid even if it is a manual.

QUOTE::::On the side of the transmission there will be a plug. remove the plug and check the fluid level. If fluid pours out when you remove it, that means the transmission is full.. if not, add fluid through this hole till it pours out. This information is completely wrong! There is no fill plug on the escort GT manual trans.. the fill hole and level check are the speed sensor... remove the 10mm bolt twist and pull up the speed sensor, re-fill, and if the plastic gear on the speed sensor is wet, it is full.
