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.

How do you check the Auto Transmission fluid on the 2000 Lanos

The way to check the transmission fluid is like old vehicles, there is a screw in the low part of the transmission in the driver's side but towards the opposed wheel, you have to work under the car and take off the screw. If leaking fluid is good In not, you have to refill.
The Daewoo Lanos needs 12 quarts of Fluid.

How do I check ATF in a 2000 daewoo lanos as there is no dipstick.

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). Models with 2.2L engine: To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

Hope this helps,

How do you check the automatic ytransmission fluid level on daewoo lano 1999 with 1.5litre motor ? also what is ATF fluid capacity?

The ATF level is checked when your engine is at normal operating temperature, your car sitting on a flat surface with your transmission in P mode. Pull out the trasmission dipstick and check the level on it at hot.
Normally the colour of the oil should be quite clear or pink but if it smells burning or is too brownish in colour, your transmission will need a flush and the internal filter replaced as well.
