Question about 2004 Kia Optima
Run the car long enough to fully warm up both the engine and the transmission.
Remove the transmission fluid dipstick, dry it off with a rag, paper towel or napkin. Wait a little (maybe o seconds) for the fluid that was on the tip of the stick as you removed it, and which might have been deposited on the inside walls of the tube the stick goes into to seep back down into the transmission. While you have the stick out and dry, familiarize yourself with the markings on it.
Put the dipstick into the tube, and fully seat it; make sure it is all the way in the dipstick tube.
Pull the stick out, and read the level of the fluid on it.
If transmission fluid is required, pour it into the tube the dipstick goes in.
