How to fill Transmission fluid in 3.0 CL?

Hi Guys,

I don't have a user manual because it didn't came with the car when I bought it used. Can anyone tell me where I can check the transmission fluid, and how to fill it on a 1997 Acura CL 3.0? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Quick ??? When I first bought my car last year, I myself added the ATF in the hole of the dipstick, I never bothered to look at the manual, DUHHHH. Will this affect the transmission? From reading this I am going to change my transmisson fluid being that I added NON-ACURA...
