I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.
Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

IAT stands for Air Intake Temperature Sensor and it is located in the intake tube coming from the air filter box tot he engine. Easiest way to find it is look at the top of your engine where it says 2200. Coming right out of that manifold is a black ribbed tube about the size of a baseball to softball. It should be going towards the direction on the front drivers side. on the back side of that tube, about 4 inches away from the intake manifold (the things that says 2200) is a plug with wires. That is your IAT Sensor. If it is unplugged, plug it back in. Otherwise unplug it and replace it. Make sure to disconnect the battery while you do this so the computer resets itself after the new one is installed. Thanks and please don't forget to rate!
