this vehicle has no dipstick, supposed to be maintained by professional only. there is the fill cap on the drivers side, between the fuse box and engine. it is red and more towards the bottom. i imagine you can atleast see the fluid status.

Here you go..
Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). Models with 2.2L engine: To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

on most cars that i have serviced the trans. if the trans has a dipstick tube. you can fill it from there. look for a plug that has a square hole (like a 1/2" ratchet would fit into) or the plug maybe a square head or even a bolt shaped plug. the drain could be on the side of the trans or the bottom. get yourself a Haynes manual #87020 at your local auto parts store or online

Sometimes like in a BMW there is no dipstick and the fluid may be checked by a cylinder container much like the brake fluid resevoire. It would have a dipstick in the cap.
