when you open your hood look in the back of the motor on the left side.. you should see a stick with a circle on the end of it for your finger have you vehicle running warmed up that means let it run for 10 or 15 min. and then pull the stick out.. wipe it off real good. stick it back in all the way.. pull it back out and hold it horizontally and check it.. it's sometimes hard to read because it has bubbles on it.. try it a couple of times to get an accurate reading good-luck ray

SOURCE: how to check transmission fluid
you dont, there is no dip stick, you need to remove the fill plug over fill the transmission then remove the check plug and drain the fluid to a trickel and reinstall the plug. would recommed taking to the dealer if your haveing shift issues, or if its leaking. those transmissions dont like to be over/under filled as little as 500ml can cause problems

Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.
