Q: Transmission Fluid on 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
How do I check my transmission fluid? There is not a dip stick, but I do see a little cap under the hood that appears to be for transmission fluid.

These generally need a special tool (dipstick) to be able to check this. I thing the reason they do this is to prevent people from checking and adding fluid improperly, which is very easy to do. If you must do this yourself, get a good repair manual and the "tool" and learn how to check this properly.
