depending on which trans it is there is a small dipstick on the trans at the front on the bottom these transmissions take a specific fluid so be careful

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission
There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

There is no dipstick on this model. Later model falcons with the 4 speed Borg Warner auto have a filler plug in the side of the box, in much the same way as a manual transmission. To check fluid level, you will need to raise the vehicle, making sure it is level, and remove the filler plug. Make sure transmission is in neutral when doing this. If the level is correct, you will have a small dribble of fluid from the hole. if not, top up until fluid gently dribbles out.
