    find a cap or something that will fit snug and seal it in there. or clamp it.

    its a round black deal looks like a sensor or something goes in it...right in the top of the trans near the starter and my lower radiator hose runs right over the top of it

    looking at the tranny from the front of the car, are you talking about directly in front of the starter? if so, then yeah theres a sensor that goes there. its a 2 wire sensor that bolts into it. im pretty sure that would be the back up light switch. your missing yours. get one.
