There is no trans dip stick. Checking the level is not really DIY friendly. It requires jacking the car up (while still being level). A lift is usually used. With the engine running and transmission temperature in the normal range, shift through all gear before checking. Next, remove the upper transmission plug (behind the trans IIRC) with a special 8mm square tool that can be purchased if you don't have one that will work. If oil comes out, it was a overfilled. If no oil comes out, you're supposed to add until it comes out. Be careful because it is really easy to burn yourself on the exhaust.
