SOURCE: where is the Transmission fluid dip stick to add

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Stratus - I want to add water and

The correct place to add engine coolant is the radiator's expansion tank. It should be a large tank under the hood with a cap that says "Coolant". The tanks will also have an Add and FULL level. Fill this tank when the engine has cooled to the FULL level. As for the radiator cap, it should come off when pressed down with hand pressure and at the same time turned in a counter clockwise rotation. DO NOT open the radiator cap when the engine is hot or at operating temperatures.

I need to add transmission fluid to my 2001 A/T Dodge Stratus but cannot find where to add it to.

I assume this is an automatic transmission? You add the transmission fluid through the dip stick tube. It will require a slender funnel available at any good auto parts stare. It doesn't look like it's that big of a hole, but with a trans funnel, you'll get it in there. And REMEMBER, the lines on the dip stick do NOT desingnate "quarts", they designate "pints". Also, make sure the engine is running and warm when you check the fluid or you will not get an accurate reading. the Stick

Transmission fluid

First make sure you need transmission fluid by checking the fluid level. To do this the transmission needs to be warm, in park with the engine running. Pull the dip stick out of the tube and wipe off with a rag or paper towel. Re insert dip stick all the way down and pull dip stick back out. Is the fluid red and is the fluid level in the hatch marks? If so it's ok. If below the min. level mark you will need to add fluid. Use a funnel and stick into the end of the transmission dipstick tube. Add the necessary amount of transmission fluid by pouring it into the funnel. Use ATF-3 fluid and do not overfill. Add a little at a time (like a 1/4 of a quart at a time). Also when checking fluid level be sure vehicle is on level ground.
