Hi Joe,
First, The ONLY stupid question, IS the one not asked. :)
I'm not familiar with the 1.8 auto model, but I can most probably help here. I'm looking at my manual here. You should have a small dipstick down LOW on the tranny. I'm thinking this critter should be on the passenger side of your engine compartment, down below the air intake or radiator hose, on the trans. Once, you're looking in this area, I'll bet you find it. You check your trans. fluid here. You also add your trans fluid here; through a long funnel(typically)inserted in this dipstick hole. Be VERY careful not to overfill trans!
Good luck!

Thanks a lot Van ! Yes, I did see that dip stick below the intake when I was looking at the engine earlier. What would be best way to make sure I dont over fill it? Especially when using a funnel to fill it ? Thanks again !!!!

Hmmm,
Well, first you have to have the engine and trans. warmed up (about a 15mile drive,I'd say,) and the trans. in park. There should be two marks on the stick; one on each side of the word hot. If your fluid comes out in-between these marks you shouldn't add any. If it is low, in the cold range; add a little at a time. I think it only takes a pint or less to get it back to the hot range.
Good luck! Gotta go now, it's late here.
