trans fluid

Ok so i have an 04 svt and I was wondering where exactly is the transmission fluid fill/check plug on the transmission (a picture would be great). I think i'm looking at the right plug, but when i take it out the trans fluid starts coming out and Im pretty sure it shouldnt and I should be able to stick me finger in and check the level like a diff. The reason I ask is because I just got a clutch put in and I threw it up on a rack to look over everything they did and that happened when I tried to check the fluid.

i know this is an old thread but just what i'm looking for. Does this same info also apply to the mtx75? And if when i take that front plug out (assuming it's the right one on the mtx75) and fluid comes out as soon as i take the plus out then that means it's got enough fluid correct? Does it matter if the transmission is hot or not?
