Default Adding Transmission Fluid

Is there a separate place to fill the diff at or does it fill all of it from where the main plug is?

Search, there are how to articles. Drain is obviously at the bottom, fill is not the angled bolt, but it's on the front of the trans.

if your dipstick is reading low, I'd just pout some down the tube where you check it. It obviously goes to the right place. Of course, I'd just add a little at a time, because overfill is a bad thing.
