This would be the one I'm talking about. The rubber plug is the "fill" hole. The differential is in the same housing as the rest of the trans, so removing the drain plug on the differential drains the entire trans (for the most part).

It ain't cold.

Just a smidge chilly, that's all.

If you get under there it's not hard to find.

Pennzoil Syncromesh is the fluid that a lot of people use. You have a couple other options but that is the most readily available.
