On the bottom is a large plug, 23 or 27 mm, I forget which. This is to drain the transaxle.
There are two ways to fill. One is thru the speed sensor hole, the other is on the front of the transmission, same size as the drain plug. Use a hose or long flexible funnel to fill.
Takes about 3.5 qts.

23mm, for sure. Go buy the right socket, as it is unusual and not in many sets.
It faces straight down. The fill bolt is identical, and faces forward. Use this to fill when on level ground. When it won't take any more and starts to come out, you are full. From 3-3.5 qts will be needed.
I might as well repeat my old mantra about not using ATF, but an appropriate gear oil.
Amsoil MTF , Redline MTL,MT90 [or mix them], or GM or Pennzoil Synchromesh are great shifting and much better for your tranny's protection.
You can use ATF, but why bother when better products are available.
