Transmission fill

I was looking on the net and ran across this. There is a fill plug on the trans right side near the back and you need this to use it. Is anyone familiar with this?

Re: Transmission fill

It's similar to an adapter for newer Pontiac models. If you have a funnel with a small end and have patience, you shouldn't need this piece, although it can help and save a few minutes of time. Shops use it to attach a PVC hose on the end and force feed (compressed air) the fluid into the transmission. This way they can charge you a hundred or so dollars for a basic trans service and the -do-it-yourself types are made to work extra hard, or bite the bullet and take it in to a shop to get the work done.
