    Your owners manual should say where the trans dipstick is at and how to check it correctly.

    To supplement Ron, the transmission dipstick is on the drivers side - right on the transaxle. It should be checked with the engine and transmission at operating temperature (warmed up). The fluid will hopefully fall between the "Fill" and "Full" ranges on the dipstick. If it's below the fill line, you can add a quart of Mercon V fluid.
