1996 Sunfire - Can't find the transmission fluid dip stick

Hi all, I know this may sound stupid - but I can't find the trans fluid stick. My automatic car is shifting extremely hard in all gears (almost like running over a big boulder sound), and wanting to see if I'm out of trans fluid. Someone????? Thanks = )

There isn't one your not crazy. There is a small red cap on the drivers side of the engine compartment for adding fluid I would recommend having it checked at a repair shop it can be a pain in the rear
