If it is an automatic you will likely have to add fluid through the dipstick tube. This is a real pain because the diameter of the tube is quite small and overflows easily. You will need to buy a funnel where the size is very close to the inside diameter of the upper neck of the tube. It will still probably make a mess though. It helps alot if you heat up the fluid before adding it, lowering the viscosity keeps it from overflowing in the tube.

Will a transmission from a 1991 Geo Metro fit into a 1998 Geo Metro?

No, a 91 metro transmission will not fit in a 98. A 91 will fit any metro between 1988 - 1996 though. After 1996 a lot of Metro's became 4 Cylinder which made them different from the previous generation metros. It may fit if the engine sizes are correct (1.0 litre 3 cylinder to the same but do not mix and match).
