lol how many times will I see these threads, if you can't tell the difference between the two, than you should not try this. It's not rocket science.
But everyone makes mistakes, good luck with future oil changes. Sorry if I sounded like an @ss (was not trying to), have a good one.

At any rate, AT fluid levels are critical. The fluid IS the clutch essentially... it's the only thing converting power from the engine, to the wheels. It does this through the torque converter, which uses the fluid pressure to move the transmission. If the levels are incorrect, it'll have either to weak or to strong force... which will cause slipping or over torquing. Either one, can seriously damage the torque converter and/or the clutches on the gears in the transmission among other things.

Look up Chris4x4's write-up on how to perform a Automatic Transmission service (the 60k maint, previously 100k). It's pretty easy to do, and easy enough to get the level perfect if you follow it step by step. Take this as a lesson learned, but don't short cut this.
Couldn't find the Chris4x4 write up, did he do one as well?

Oil change

I think its great that you are doing you own maint. A oil change is prob. The easiest thing you can do yourself. Get someone with a little experience to go over it with you as you can cause damage to a vehicle quite easily if you are not sure of the maint procedure.

There is a place to add fluid you just need a pump which you can get for under 10 bucks.
