Whoa !
They are 2 different fluids,
The gearbox oil is same as a standard manual gearbox,
But the filler / level plug is hidden behind the hydraulic clutch pack.

The filler under the bonnet is for said hydraulic fluid (use only the proper ford ASM fluid.)

I got the gear auto check engine light flash on the cluster. I believe this is for the ASM and i already filled up the ASM fluid but the light still flashing.
What's the possibility problem and where to check.

If you've used the correct fluid and the level is correct,there's not much else you can now do without diagnostic equipment.
Needs codes reading,and then clearing to see what comes back or are current faults.
Main issue with ASM is usually pressure related or pump failing,
You should be able to hear pump run when you open the drivers door.
Also be sure bonnet hinges aren't seized or stiff,there is a switch on the hinges that will affect ASM operation.

EML on a mk6,the glowplug lamp will flash
