There is a front cap but it does not say engine oil. When I open it, i can see engine parts in it. I just want to pour in more oil? Is it somewhere hidden, or this is it?

I understand there are 2 types of oil, engine oil and transmission oil. What I am looking at looks like transmission oil cap.

can you post a photo?Have you checked the owners manual?Generally the cap will have an image of an oilcan on it. – mikes Mar 24 '12 at 21:13
That's right it has had oil can on it. But I found the manual anyhow and that helped. Posted my own answer. – Dave Mar 25 '12 at 12:28

Found an online document and it solved the problem. The cap on top of the engine is the motor oil
