You may have a 5 speed automatic or a 6 speed automatic transmission. If you have a 5 speed automatic, the fluid is checked with a special pump that attempts to add fluid through a fill check plug within the drain plug of the transmission pan. You will likely need to seek a repair shop or dealership for this. For the 6 speed, there is a small dipstick on the passenger front of the transmission case under the vehicle. Here, you can at least check the fluid level, but you cannot add fluid without the special pump mentioned above.
