ok

You fill this transmission up from the bottom, there is a plug on the pan, it's like a plug in a plug, the bigger plug you use to drain it, but the center of the plug you use to fill it.

There is a T30 screw in the outter portion of the plug, then there is this tool you screw in, then you use a suction gun to push the new fluid into this tool with a 3/8 piece of fuel line on it. it looks like this. here is the link. I'm sure you can get them at a local auto parts store.

I'm sorry, I can't place a call right at this moment, but another expert may pick it up.

The pan has an outter stem with a plug inside of it, so that tool goes into the stem, then you push the fluid into the transmission with a suction gun and that tool I sent the link for. Click here for the video.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

just need to know where to add and the sprout is located on the engine block?

Your trying to fill the transmission up. You do that from underneath the car. at the transmission drain plug. it's a drain and fill port. click that video link I sent and you will see what I mean.
