there is no dipstick stupid suzuki the only way to check trans fluid is to crawl under the car and remove the filler plug from the transmission check to make sure the fluid is to the brim of the hole there is a diagram in the manual page 5-11 hope this helps

Right on the transmission, to the right side of the engine bay as you are looking down on it. It is a black plastic part that is bolted on the transmission with two 10mm bolts, and connected to the transmission with rod and clip. It is partially obstructed by the radiator hose, but otherwise really easy to get to.

well to check it, its not a plug, its a dipstick similar to your engine oil dipstick, probably has a yellow handle, and changing the filter on pretty much any transmission since 1980 requires taking the fluid pan off the bottom of the transmission, i would recommend getting a mechanic to do this part because if you damage the valve body inside you might as well throw out the transmission and buy a new one

Testimonial: "wrong answer there is no dipstick , research this one a little more. "
SOURCE: Changing the transmission fluid
Once you've drained the transaxle by removing drain plug, re-install drain plug and torque to mfg. specs. To fill transaxle, you need a 5/8" square drive attached to a 9" extension, breaker bar or ratchet. Raise vehicle on hoist, or jack up and secure with jackstands. The fill plug is located above and slightly to the right of the location where the passenger side c.v. halfshaft enters the transaxle. Remove fill plug. Using a fluid exchange tool available at your local parts store, fill with automatic transmission/transaxle fluid available only from a Suzuki dealership, (part# ESSO LT 71141) until fluid starts to run out of fill hole, then replace fill plug, and torque to manufacturer specifications. I'm a former Suzuki technician. I hope this was helpful.
