There is a dip stick on the transmission - it is short and doesn't extend up into the engine bay. Check the owners manual and it tells you where it is located.
I just check the manual and it does not have a dipstick for the auto trans. It also state to let dealer check for oil...etc I want to check it my own rather. It does contain descriptive information regarding how to check manual trans though. Anyone out there knows how?
To sum it up, have the car on a level surface, you remove the hexed center nut on the drain plug of the tranny pan. Install the tool. Add fluid and anything let the extra drain out. When it stops draining, you've reached the appropriate level. Remove the tool, reinstall the hex.

There is a dipstick on the side of the transmission for checking fluid levels. I know this from not reading any manual but from personal experience when I did a converter swap.

I went back to my manual again, it says no dip stick for auto. Anyways ill see if my manual is wrong when i have my car up again nexty week. I notice the article says to check the fluid on level ground does that mean i cant check it on a ramp(my only option).
