Question about Daewoo Lanos
If there is no dipstick to check it (which I'm assuming there isn't), what you can do is get under the car. There should be two plugs (probably just round plugs with a square recess in them), one on the bottom and one on the side. The lower one is used as a drain, and the upper one is the fill port. Remove the upper plug - if you're just checking the color/condition of it, put a finger in and take a look at the fluid on your finger. If you want to check the level, this setup is made so that after the old fluid is drained, the bottom plug is reinstalled and you fill it with fluid until it comes out of the fill port (the manufacturer positions the fill port even with the "full" level for the fluid). I usually get the fluid and some clear hose, put the hose into the fill port after threading it down through the engine bay from above, and add fluid from above. When it starts to come out of the fill port, the level is correct. Reinstall the plug and drive away.
Note - you may want to spray the plugs down with a penetrating fluid like PB Blaster, or if you can find it, Kroil, so that the plugs will come free more easily.
