The engine & transmission are mounted laterally. The engine is on the passenger side and transmission on the driver's side (assuming a U.S. layout with driver on the left).
You have to remove the speedometer pinion assembly, which is located on the driver's side of the transmission. It is a small gear assembly that inserts into a hole in the transmission. The top of the pinion assembly covers the hole, so once you remove it you can check the transmission oil level and add more oil if necessary.
You have to reach down into the engine bay about 2 feet to grab it. You will be almost up against the firewall between engine bay and passenger compartment.
There is a wiring harness plugged into the top of the assembly. Press the tab with your thumb, and pull it out sideways. Next to it is a 10mm nut that you will need to loosen. This nut holds the top plate of the assembly down onto the transmission casing. Once you get the nut loosened and removed, carefully pull the assembly straight up. You might have to gently rotate it back and forth to get it to pull out.
Be careful of the O-ring seal when pulling it out and putting it back in. Also, keep it clean to avoid introducing dirt/debris into the transmission when you re-insert it.
I used a clean strip of metal as a dipstick to check the fluid level. The Chilton's book I have says correct level is 1 1/2" below the opening for the 2.0 liter engine, but it doesn't say anything about the 2.5 liter engine which is what the Sentra SE-R has. So, I just used this level.
When re-inserting the assembly, just slide it back down in, but don't force it. Rotate back & forth while pushing if necessary until the assembly's top cover is flush with the transmission casing. Tighten the nut back down and re-connect the wiring harness.
In my grand am se I have to take it to a shop and they have to check the tranny fluid with a analizer. ya.
The transmission fluid needs to be changed in a 1996 Nissan Sentra every 30,000 miles. The transmission fluid capacity is shown when the dip stick registers full.
With transmission fluid and a small spouted funnel, fill the stem with the red rubber ball cap, to the lower right of the engine. It's the same stem you check your transmission fluid level.
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.
Hopefully if you are thinking of adding transmission fluid that means that you checked it..If so you are in luck, you put the trans fluid in the same place you checked it. However you have to get a transmission fluid funnel, also you need to ensure that you check it correctly. If you read the dipstick then it should have directions on how to check it. It should be checked in "park" with the engine running.

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.
