The fill / check plug is on the passenger side of the transaxle directly behind the CV axle. It is a 17mm bolt. You will need a special funnel fitted with a long tube to add transaxle fluid. 10w30 motor oil is the correct fluid. Fluid should be added until the fluid level is even with the bottom of the plug hole. (Fill it until it begins to drip out)

How to change Toyota Paseo transmission fluid?

Assuming it is a manual transmission: Remove the lower drain plug on the transaxle body and allow all existing fluid to drain completely. Replace the drain plug and remove the fill valve, located higher on the transaxle body. You'll need a pump assembly and vinyl hose to pump the transmission fluid into the transaxle. Any good auto parts store sells these plastic pumps at nominal prices. The pump assembly screws onto the top of the transmission fluid bottle. Pump the new oil through the vinyl hose into the transaxle until it begins to come back out of the fill hole. Then screw the fill plug back in. It a very easy process once you've found the drain and fill plugs and get yourself situated underneath the transaxle.

How hard is it to change the transmission fluid and filter in an '01 V6 Santa Fe?

If you are going to simply drain and fill the transaxle, find the drain plugon the bottom of the transaxle--should be a 24mm head--remove the plug and let the fluid drain. Install new fluid through dipstick passage (use only Hyundai SP3 fluid!), should take about 4qts. Checked fluid level with vehicle running and gear shift selector in neutral position. This transaxle does not have a servicable filter, even if there is an oil filter mounted to the top of the transaxle, it is a lifetime filter. Depending on milage you may want to take the vehicle to a shop and have a transaxle flush performed
