    The fluid level can't easily be checked.
    The vehicle has to be raised , a scan tool is used to monitor the transmission fluid temperature and at the specified temperature (50 degrees centigrade ??) fluid should run out of the overflow/fill port. If fluid does not run out it is to be added during that process until it does.
    Unless there is a leak you should not have to add fluid........
