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)

Changed the trany oil on 97 corolla 3 speed and it took about 3.5 qt to fill it to the proper level but Never changed the diff oil as could not find the fillcheck plug. Is it important to be changed?

Servicing the transaxle on a '97 Corollathere is a differential on the 3 speed auto trans. its in the same casing as the transmission. this combination is called a transaxle. if there is another drain plug on the transaxle besides the one in the black steel pan(its an Allen plug) you can service it. just remove the drain plug and allow it to empty. then slide your hand up the back of the transmission behind where the drain plug is and you'll find the differential fill plug. remove it with a 17mm wrench, fill it with dexron ATF (this is tricky without the right pump)till fluid leaks out the opening, and replace the plug
