In the transmission pan underneath tranny. You should have a red dipstick on passenger side to check. Not all models have a dipstick, some you have to go under car, find the upper filler bolt on tranny, remove the bolt, stick your finger in there to check tranny fluid levels and add from there.

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.

Your Alero does not have a transmission dip stick. You do not need to check it unless it starts leaking.

For the V6 model, there is a red cap on top of the transmission. With the hood up looking at the engine, it would be on the right side on top of the transmission, there is no dipstick.

I need to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 alero (4 cylinder),however I am unable to locate the dipstick to check the level. Where is it or how many quarts should I add.

Technically there is no dipstick as there was on other vehicles.Your vehicle may have a little cap that screws into the transmission. under that cap is the little dipstick. However some vehicles do not have this cap. Causing you to take the vehicle to a shop where they can flush the fluid using a machine that they hook up to the transmission cooler lines. This machine takes out all the nasty fluid that is left behind by a regular filter or drain and fill. Usually when you change the filter or perform a drain and fill you replace about 4-5 quarts. as this machine can replace up to 16 quarts, depending on the transmission. You cannot get this much out of the transmission by draining it. there is still some left in the passage ways and torque converter. i have used the machine myself on all of my vehicles and they will guaratee that the whole transmission will be cpmpletely filled with brand new clean fluid.

Transmission dipstick

Your car has a sealed transmission, no dipstick, the fluid is checked with an electronic scan tool when it is at the proper temperature through an access port on top of trans. The reason they do this is to keep owners from overfilling the trans, very common problem and can ruin the transmission.
