Theres a plug on the side of the transmission. You'll have to get under the car. Why do you need to fill it? To check the level on a manual, undo the plug and put our finger in the hole, level should be at the bottom of the filler hole. On a Auto check with the dipstick and add thought the dipstick.

If a 1988 Nissan Sentra is slow to accelerate when put in gear, the transmission might need to have the screen filter cleaned and the fluid drained and replaced. Older vehicles should have the transmission serviced after the vehicle reaches 100,000 miles and ever 100,000 miles after that.

The 1998 Nissan Sentra has a timing chain. It never needs changing as long as the oil is changed in a reasonable amount of time.

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.

A check engine light could mean many things on a 1988 Nissan Sentra. The light could mean anything to a fuel cap not being tight enough to bad spark plugs.

follow the cable from fire wall to transmission.

If it is a manual transmission you do not have transmission cooler lines. If its an automatic they will be on one side of the radiator and you can follow them to the tranny from there.
