Default newb Tranny Fluid question

I've been having some problems getting into first lately, so I decided to check my tranny fluid and its showing up RIGHT on the L.

Sooooooo my three questions.

1. Will chaging/adding fluid help in changing grears more smoothly?

2. If I just need to add some how do I know which to add and how much? I read the manual and it just says "use the same wieght" well I don't know what came with the car.

3. I'm guessing that you add fluid in the same place that the dipstick is located? Any easy way to flush the fluid?

Thanks for any/all help (and yes.. I feel like a idiot)

If you are running low on trans fluid, adding more will help make shift smoother and more accurate. It should tell you in the owners manual what type of trans fluid is currently in their. You do pour the fluid is in where the dipstick hole is. Is this on your WRX? If so, why are you running low on trans fluid, on a pretty new car?

I don't know why its low. I bought the car used at 5k miles and it now has 14k miles on it. The last time I checked the tranny fluid was at about 10k miles at the last oil change.

I looked in the manual and didn't see what wieght was already in there.. maybe I'm missing it. Does anyone know what comes from the factory?

Don't worry about it. All subaru's came w/ the minimum amount of tranny fluid in it from the factory. I bought mine new and it was a hair above the L mark. I would just do a tranny fluid swap instead. Put in some Motul or Royal Purple.

75W90 GL-5 tranny fluid will do the trick and is what is specified by Subaru.
