    Yes, standard transmissions use fluid too. The filler for your transmission fluid will be on the transmission itself. Drive the vehicle to get the fluid hot, then wait for the transmission to cool down enough so you can touch it. Locate the transmission fluid filler plug midway up the side of the transmission case. Do not confuse the filler plug for the drain plug, which is located at the bottom of the case. Insert the square end of a ratchet wrench into the filler plug. Rotate the wrench counterclockwise to loosen the plug. Remove the wrench and continue twisting the plug by hand to remove it.Insert a clean finger into the hole after removing the filler plug. If the fluid level is not at the bottom of the hole, fluid must be added. Insert the nozzle of a bottle of transmission fluid into the hole and squeeze enough in to bring the level to the bottom of the hole. Replace the transmission filler plug and tighten it with a ratchet wrench until it is fully seated. Wipe up any spills on the side of the transmission case with a rag.
