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

this t-bird has a 5r55s trans. it does not have a dipstick.
it has a "standpipe" type leveling system.
to check fluid level the tranmission has to be within 80-120 degree f.
take the plug out of the center of the fitting located on the bottom of the trans pan. it is a torx 30.
running in park the fluid should drip slower than a coffee pot.
to add you need a npt thread fitting the same as the little plug you removed. and attach a bottle of mercon5 and hose to it. squeeze the bottle to add fluid
then recheck it by letting it drain out to a fast dribble. then install the little plug back in. remember 80-120 degree fluid temp.

SOURCE: I dont know where to
You do not say whether it is an automatic or standard ,and also is it a 4 or 6 cylinder????. If it is a 6 cylinder with autpmatic there is no dipstick,only a RED cap on the drivers side of the engine.It is a little hard to see but if you look straight down under where the air tube is that comes from the air box it is there.It is a little tricky to get to but it just unscrews and the fluid shoud be to the top. Get a flashlight and check. Normally these will not loose fluid unless there is a leak.You will need a funnel with a long hose to put fluid in,and make sure the fluid is for a GM ONLY.

the dipstick is located behind the front transmission mount and its held in by a 12mm bolt. you may need to remove the transmission mount to check the fluid. the color of the dipstick is yellow, make sure the car is in park and fully warmed up to operating temerature and on a level surface before checking the fluid.

underneath the car there will be a small check plug use a 11mm wrench. it will be on the transmission just to the rear of the oil drain plug on the side of the trans check it while the car is running. pull the plug, if fluid comes out then its full if not the fill is on the driver side usually a red cap on top of the trans
