Probably through the transmission fluid level dipstick tube. Use a funnel, obviously. :)

A manual transaxle requires 2.9 quarts of MERCON automatic transmission fluid. Fill at speedometer cable connection.

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)

Auto transaxle fluid in installed through the dipstick tube. Manual transaxle fluid is installed through fill port at left side of unit at lower right side of transaxle.

There's no dipstick on a Sunfire that new. You need to add fluid at the transaxle itself. There's a plug in the side of the transaxle that needs to be removed to check or fill the fluid.

Dry fill is the total fluid capacity from completely dry, empty, to full.

If you have an automatic transaxle, there isn't a drain plug. You remove the fluid by removing the bottom pan on the transaxle, or taking it to a shop that has a vacuum pump to pump the fluid out through the fill hole.

you must remove the spedometer cable from the transaxle/ fill through here

My Haynes manual says to fill it by removing the speed sensor.

The 91 and newer car you fill though the speedo cable

This shouldn't actually be necessary, but here goes. Remove the vehicle speed sensor and the transaxle drain plug. Drain the fluid (dispose of properly). Replace the drain plug and tighten it to 29to 39 ft-lbs. Fill the transaxle to a correct level withmercron tranny fluid. Please do not overfill or you can damage your tranny and end up replacing it.

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.

It takes six or seven quarts of transmission fluid to fill it in an escort zx2. Its good to buy an extra one in case it's needed.

The manual transmission on a 91 Ford Escort GT is filled with fluid by gently depressing the clutch with the engine off. Fluid is added to the reservoir until the level stops going down.

On the front side of the transaxle, about in the middle of the side of the housing (you'll see the fill/level check plug). Fill until the lube is at the bottom of the fill hole.

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
