Re: where is the dipstick located for transmission fluid?
If you are facing your engine, look on the right hand side of the engine, down towards the front by the radiator, you should see the dipstick for the automatic transaxle (if this an automatic transmission of course)
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You will open the hood and pull the transmission dipstick out
of the top of the transmission. Wipe the fluid off the dipstick with a
rag and then reinsert the dipstick into the transmission. Then, pull
the dipstick back out and check the fluid level.
Keep in mind that the dipstick has
markings to show you where the low and full points are on the stick.
Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer).
Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for
checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of
the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the
side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain
pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for
pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.
Levels: Transmission fluid level:
The transmission dipstick tube looks like a slightly large oil dispstick tube. It is located near the firewall on the drivers side.
Set parking /emergency brake.
With engine warm and running, pull dipstick and clean off with rag. Insert disptick and pull out. Check fluid level.
To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel (good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen). Auto stores also sell "special" funnels with a short rubber hose attached to the end.
Not all transmission fluid is the same. Purchase only the one made for your vehicle (Volvo?)
I hope it was the transmission fluid level that you needed.
If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point
I am not sure on Land Rovers but to check automatic transmission fluid the car needs to be running, warmed up, and on level ground. Search the rear sides of the engine bay for a dipstick that usually has an orange or red handle on it. Once you find it the fluid should be red, if it is you have the right dipstick. Yellow handles are usually oil dipsticks so be careful. Your user manual in the glove box should have pictures of where its located.
Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and
trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid
level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed.
Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid
pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks
and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.
DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION 1.Park the vehicle on a level
surface.2.Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area
around the dipstick.3.With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking
brake applied, start the engine.4.The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid
should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C
(176-194°F)].5.Move the selector lever to every position to fill the
torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the
"N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is
accurate.6.Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on
the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level
reaches the "HOT" range.
