OK, this has been suggested to you before. GO BUY A REPAIR MANUAL! If you already have one I apologize for yelling. If not GO BUY A REPAIR MANUAL!
Any auto parts store will have some sort of Chilton or Haynes Manual that will aid you in at least finding out which part is which.
In your pic, the box thing you describe is the radiator, not the transmision.
Against the firewall/bulkhead (between your seat and the engine), on the driver's side you see a black round barrel mounted against the wall, with another item (the master cylinder) bolted to it. This is your brake fluid resevior.
Just to the driver's side of that is another smaller, black resevior (I know I'm spelling this wrong). This is your hydraulic clutch master cylinder. Remove the top for this resevior and check the fluid. Check with your owner's manual or the dealer for the correct fluid to add if necesary. Your clutch uses hydraulic pressure to engage and disengage and may not be working properly if it's low on fluid.
Your tansmission fluid is contained within the transmission, under the Jeep and can only be checked by getting under the Jeep and removing a plug in the side of it. You should really get a manual before you check this fluid level, or take it to the dealer and have them check it. If you want to check it and need to add some on your own, get the correct transmission fluid from the dealer only.
I'll say it one more time. Go buy a manual and just read through the thing, or look up the parts in question in the index and read those chapters. Good Luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
