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.

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.

The only way to check the level is to get under the vehicle and loosen a bolt attached to the transmission. You fill the transmission until fluit comes out the bolt hole The only way to put transmission fliud in is on the drivers side of the engine. There is a lid that screws off that you put the fluid into. It is not visible and is a pain to get to. It is tucked in under other parts of the engine. You have to use a flexible funnel. I strongly suggest that if you are going to perform this yourself, you spend the $25.00 and buy the book on the vehicle from a local parts store.

If this is the one without a dipstick and just a cap on the trannie, then it's tough. I believe the "proper" procedure is to do it by having the dealer measure trannie temperature under certain conditions.
For me, I just added a bit at a point when I had some slipping occurring.
