If you have a transmission "Dipstick" which most cars do, you can slowly poor the tranny fuid in there (using a funnel) until it is at the appropriate level.(The dipstick will look a lot like your oil dipstick under your hood)

For a Nissan Sentra with a manual transmission, the transmission has two plugs . One is a filler plug, which is on its side near the front driver-side tire and clutch cable, and the other is a drain plug, which is at the bottom of the transmission. To add fluid, take off the filler plug and add fluid (most likely 4-GL). REMINDER: if you plan to replace the old transmission fluid, make sure you can remove the filler plug before you drain the transmission.

You add transmissioin fluid through the same hole where the transmission dip stick is located. You'll need a long-necked funnel to prevent any spillage.

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.

FYI Manufactures have stopped putting dip sticks on some transmissions so that do-it-yourselfers cant add the wrong transmission fluid to the transmission. If you mix different transmission fluids the chemical reactions can change the viscosity of the fluid and turn it to sludge.

Believe it or not, you add transmission fluid into the same tume that you use to check the transmission fluid. Just a reminder, before you add transmission fluid, make sure you check the level properly. Vehicle must be level, warmed up, and running. Also make sure you put the transmission through all of the gears before checking it.
