If your vehicle is equipped with the 2.4L engine, then it has the 4t40 tranny and there is no dipstick to check the fluid with. There is just a bolt in the side of the tranny. You must pull the bolt out and add fluid until it comes out the small hole on the side of the tranny. If the old fluid is burnt smelling or has metal shavings in it then it needs changed.
