when you open your hood look in the back of the motor on the left side.. you should see a stick with a circle on the end of it for your finger have you vehicle running warmed up that means let it run for 10 or 15 min. and then pull the stick out.. wipe it off real good. stick it back in all the way.. pull it back out and hold it horizontally and check it.. it's sometimes hard to read because it has bubbles on it.. try it a couple of times to get an accurate reading good-luck ray

The car has to be running when checking the trans fluid. It should have reading guages on the bottom of the stick with minimum/max levels. You should take it out and wipe it then reinsert it to read level...It should have fluid at least on the bottom 2 inches of the stick. If noting then your low and need to add. make sure your putting the trans fluid in the correct place and not mixing it with the oil fill...

The dipstick can be purchased from your local dealer, OR you have to go to your dealer for service (or a local mechanic who has the proper dipstick for your car). More and more car companies are not including the dipsticks in their vehicles in order to have the vehicle "properly serviced" by the dealer, and the dealer only. Unfortunately, the dipstick is quite expensive the last time I checked, and you may have to shop around to find a mechanic that wont charge you a whole lot of money to check your fluid for you.
Thanks for asking!
