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.

The trannsmission is a sealed unit and there is no dipstick. Check to see if you have a leak. More than likely it sounds like your low on fluid at least a 1/2 to a whole quart. Since these are sealed units it should be taken to the dealership to have looked at. If there is not any leaks then I would add 1/2 qt of tranny fluid and try driving so see if it helped. If it helped a little but the same problems are still there add another 1/2 qt. If it doesnt solve the problem then your tranny needs to be looked at.

if u bought it a week ago and from a dealer or used car lot bring back and advise of problem almost all dealers now have a limited warranty on used vehicles --if private bought than have scanned at an auto store most [such as auto zone/ advanced auto] scan for free check ur local area the trouble code will give u a start point towards fixing ur problem

can you get it open at all? or can you get to it? it sounds like it's simply frozen. if you can get to it the simpliest thing would be to spray wd40 on the part that spreads. you'll need to give it a minute then spray it again to make sure it gets in good. now, if you can open it, do so, the spray it with the wd40, wipe if down some, work the mechanism then spray again. this should loosen and help it work . unless you've been hit and the thing was jammed somehow it should do the job. good luck & God bless,
