Take to service center and have it checked, sometimes if no dipstick, they have a plug they remove and filler hole to measure proper fluid levels.

How i check the transmission leval

the car should be warmed up. on a level surface, and it should be driven or at least the trans should be placed in gear (forward and reverse) a few times so that the trans is warned up-with the car in park, pull the trans dipstick (red handle, right side as you face the engine with the hood up)-pull the stick and wipe it off, insert it-the fluid level should be within the cross-hatch marks on the stick, and note the color of the fluid, it should be red-if it is brown or worse, a darker color (like oil), you need to change it.

Saturns are great in that servicing the trans is like doing an oil change in any other car-the trans has a spin on filter (looks like an oil filter) and it has a drain plug, like an engine. They should all be like that...

Transmission slow to start

the trasmission fluid leval may be low or your cluches are slipping. check the trasmission fluid leval with the engan wormed up and the trasmition in park pull the dip stike with yellow on it and check the level alsow smell the dip stick if it smells burnt the the tran fluid need to be changed.
if it is low put tranmition fluid in it by using a long funal and put the fluid in the tranmition dip stike tube. If the leval is full and the fulid is not burnt it might be trasnmiton cluches and the tranmition needs to be rebilt.

1997 chevy cavalier Z24 2.4l autotrans. fluid level

Hi losflip,
There is a plug located where the right side axle shaft enters the transmission it is above the pan. To check the fluid level of the transmission the engine must be at operating temp and the vehicle must be level. The must be running and the transmission in park, the plug is then removed and if transmission fluid starts dripping/leaking out it is full. If not transmission fluid should be added till fluid starts leaking from the plug hole, then just reinsert the plug and tighten. Generally this is done with the vehicle on a lift in order to access the plug, you might be able to do this if you have enough room to access the plug remember the vehicle must be level.
