Transmission fill plug

Can anyone tell me if the tranny fill plug is the same size as the drain plug? I was filling my tranny yesterday with fresh fluid from a TOB install, and seems it has disappeared.

Do you have the standard transmission or an automatic?

If it's an automatic, you just drain from the pan and refill from the dipstick tube like most other automatics.

I've never messed with an XJ five-speed but usually there is a drain bolt and a bolt that is higher up on the side of the transmission (Usually a giant PITA to fill from). Basically you just keep adding fluid until it starts to weep from that bolt hole.
