You need to get a dipstick and locate the dipstick tube. You may have to go to the dealer for the dipstick, it's not a common aftermarket part that can be found at a car parts store. To find the dipstick tube you may use a flash light to make it easier. Open the hood and you will see a plastic piece on the top of the engine. This piece splits into four chambers going towards the front bumper. The dipstick tube is right in front (closer to you) of the second chamber from the left. It is a black metal tube with the opening facing up.
