Its located low in the drivers side of the engine compartment near the firewall, Should be a black or yellow dipstick.

Not on an 1989 SHO. The fill plug is on the front side of the trans., it is a 3/8 sqaure drive hole, fill to the bottom edge of hole. May be more accesable from under vehicle.

Hold it!!! An 89 SHO is a stick shift. There is no trans cooler lines to mess with.

The lower hose if it needs replaced can be hard to find. The NAPA # 7311 will work.
