Nicer try #1 and #3 but there is no dipstick or standard fill port on these. #2 is right on, Have it looked at by dealer or take your chances with Joe's Garage.

Check when car is warm running and in neutral.the dipstick should be located on transmission.some newer cars dont have it.

Oil should be checked hot. Drive the vehicle a couple of miles to warm the transmission fluid. With the vehicle on level ground and engine idling in "park" remove the transmission dip stick, wipe it dry, re-insert & remove again it to read fluid level. The dipstick will have proper level range engraved on it. Keep in mind that if the level is at or below the "add" mark then you should add a pint, not a quart. After adding the proper type transmission fluid, wipe the dipstick & read again to verify result.

2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.
