1990 CQ (90): Changing Transmission Oil...

Hi everyone,

Just procured a 3/8" hex driver (17mm) from a "Mac" tools guy in his truck
for approx. $ 24.00. I tried feeling around on top of the manual
transmission, but couldn't find a fill plug...

Do I need the hex driver to open the plug in order to insert trans oil? I
checked Bentley, but to no avail. I did see that the rear has a "breather"
access on top - I'm assuming that's where you refill the rear diff. 

Also a question (for the QNet tranny gurus!):
 I've got RedLine MT-90 for the transmission (and center diff?), 5 quarts,
and 1 quart of the RedLine 75W90 gear oil for the rear. Am I heading in the
right direction?

turbo-like) with the change to Mobil1 5W30 for the winter, from Mobil1 15W50)

1986 Chevy Caprice, 300K+mi, (Just lost all forward gears after the tranny
shuddered to an immediate HALT on an off-ramp! Luckily, I was almost in our
office parking lot. Three cheers for AAA tonight!) Seventh time back into the
tranny shop - now seriously considering those "Lemon" laws...
