if it is a manual transmission you have to check it from under the car by opening the fill plug. if fluid starts flowing out your full if not than you need to service it.
if it is an automatic it will be close to the firewall and hard to spot. but it is there. if you have 45,000 miles on it you should have the transmission serviced whether it is an automatic or manual.

60k miles is the recommended, so not too far out. Better safe than sorry, new fluids or crunchy broken gears. It's the cheapest option.

you have a sealed trans, if is leaking then you need to take it to a dealer for repair and they can add any missing AWS fluid, the level is checked with the Scan tool only, if not leaking dont worry the fluid is for as long your trans works.

You may not be able to really. Some of these have dipsticks and some do not. CVT transmissions do not but some 6 speed transmissions do. If you do have one it should be near the air filter box. IF you have one....put the vehicle in park and start it up. Leave it running at an idle for several minutes until its good and hot. While it is running and hot, pull the stick and check the level. (be very careful) Fluid should be red in color and at the point on the stick where is says warm. If it is brown, you have trouble, if it is low, you have trouble. ie leak. Either way you look at it. ANY time a tranny slips it DOES cause further damage. I recommend a tranny shop

Change your Spark Plugs, clean your MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) and Throttle Body, change your Fuel Filter, check or change your Spark Plug Wires.
