If it is a Manual transmission there is an oil fill plug on the front of the transmission, that takes a 3/8" drive ratchet to remove. Fill it until it starts to drip from the hole or until you can stick your finger in the hole and feel the fluid. If it is an automatic pull the dipstick and fill through the dip tube with a funnel until the dipstick says it's full.
