No. No. No! These vehicles are NOT supplied with a dip stick. There is a small 'fill tube' that extends into the transmission with plug marked "Dealer Use Only". Allegedly there is a check plug at some point on the tranny so that one could determine the level of fluid without going to the dealer. It may be under a shield on the front of the transmission; however that shield can only be removed by unplugging the electric/electronic connector that controls the transmission, removing four jamb nuts and assorted other paraphrenalia. I have been unable to locate anything that appears to be a check plug - I have jacked the van up, crawled under it and run my hands all over the tranny at this point.
Has anyone actually found one and been able to check the fluid levels?
