    Its towards the side of the transmission just above the pan. Its either a 8 or 9mm allen. What kind of issues are you having?

    Once warmed up the trans slips from stop, revs then jerks forward. Shifts fine in manual mode. Hoping it is just fluid.

    I doubt it... They are known for Transmission issues. The fluid is probably burnt. Let me know if you need a hand diagnosing it I see your not that far from me.

    Anyone have a photo or diagram on where the fill plug is located? I got under the car and only found the drain plug on the bottom.

    How many miles on your tranny, when was it last serviced, do you know to check the fluid level with the engine running in Park?
    Tell us what color the fluid is and if it flows out when running or is it low.

    There is approx 75000 miles on the car. Don't know if the fluid has been changed in the trans, I know we haven't. I located the plug, car was warmed up but not hot, running in park after cycling through the gears, removed the plug and trans fluid started to flow out. It was dark, but not what I call 'burnt'. I recall reading that the fluid should just drip out if full, but it was flowing.

    I would get that fluid changed if you have no idea of when it was last done.
