Fluid level is topped up at the little filler tube at the front of the transmission.

It should have a red "Security" seal around the cap.

You need to check fluid between an ATF temperature of 35c to 45c (use a scan tool to communicate with the Automatic Transmission
Control Module to determine temperature.

Once you are at the correct temperature, you need to remove the "fluid level check plug" at the bottom rear of the oil pan.

Fluid level is correct when fluid "drips out" between 35c to 45c.

Over filling or under filling can cause damage.

Not using the correct synthetic fluid can cause damage.
