Where do you add tranny fluid for 93 escort lx?

Both the automatic and manual transmissions take Mercon Automatic tranny fluid. The automatic is added by putting a small funnel in the dipstick tube. The manual has to have the speed sensor taken off the top of the transmission to fill. The speed sensor is held in with a clamp and a 10 mm bolt. Carefully pry the speed sensor and speedometer drive out of the opening. They are really hard to get out. To figure out if the level is right you fill it between the top and bottom of the drive gear.

there is 2 of them depending on what type of tranny you have, the MAIN sensor that makes the speedo work is located on the rear transfer case and NOT on the tranny itself. the other is a much smaller sensor that does go on the tranny but that ones DOESN'T effect your speedo. if you speedo is not working then its going to be the BIG sensor in the rear.
