Locate the dipstick for your transmission. It is usually near the back
of the engine, and the stick handle is either a T-handle or a ring handle.

Grasp the dipstick handle and pull straight up until the end of the
stick clears the housing tube. Wipe the stick off with a rag, and push it all
the back down into the tube.
Pull the stick all the way out again and hold it so you can see the end
of the stick and the film of fluid that clings to it.
Look for the level indicators stamped or drilled into the dipstick. You
should see two sets of indicators. One set is for checking the fluid when the
engine is cold, and the other set is for checking the fluid when the engine is
hot. Each set of indicators is marked with a "full" line and an
Determine whether your transmission fluid is at the proper level by
finding the spot on the dipstick where the film of fluid ends. If the film ends
near the "full" mark or somewhere near the halfway point between
"full" and "add," your transmission has an adequate fluid
Return the dipstick to the holding tube and push it all the way back
down into the tube. Fully seat the dipstick in the holding tube

Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.
Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.
