There is no dipstick...

There is a plug that gets pulled, when the temperature is at temp. When it is at that point you pull the plug with the motor running and if none comes out add some until it runs out.

Here is a guide on how to service the transmission

It like a manual transmission level check.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

If you don't have a leak then I wouldn't worry about checking it. It's not easy to check it has to be on level ground and you would have to put it on four jack stand's so it was level and that you could get under it to check it. You change it every 50,000 mile's. If your going to go thru all that you might as well just change it.
