You have to buy one, can possibly get from wrecking yard but first make sure it is the same transmission by calling dealership and asking what years have the same trani.......must be the same because otherwise the length could be different and you would not get correct reading. But you really need one.

This sounds like transmission problems, some of these models do not have a transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. The first step is to see if this car has a dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid will cause this problem also or if there is a leak and fluid leaks low after time until it gets to low and transmission wont move. if this model does not have a dip stick for the transmission then you will need to take it to a tranny or repair shop and have them check it.
If you have a dip stick and the fluid is full then you may have internal transmission problems and again will need a shop to check it out. Make sure if the fluid is low and you are adding you will need to make sure you are using the correct fluid or damage will occur , the type is written on the stick, look closely and you will see the writing ,
if its a manual transmission, you have to remove the pan from under the car, and replace the fluid and clean the filter , its a magnet clean the metal slivers with a clean cloth put new fluid in. if its a automatic u will have 2 dip sticks one is oil and one is tranny the oil dip stick is usually yellow or white tranny is red and closer to the back of the motor u need a transmission fluid funnel put the funnel were the dip stick go's u can get it from your local auto store put in the fluid your ower manual calls for and if its a leak add some none leak none slip fluid
You'll have two dip sticks under your hood on the engine. One will be for oil the other for tansmission fluid. You can tell you have the transmission because the fluid is a bright redish color where as the oil should be clearish or black, Denpending on your last oil change. The dip sticks are usually on opisit sides or the engine from eachother but could be on the same side. To check your transmission fluid then you need the emergency brake on and the car in neutral and the motor running. On the dip stick there is notches or tiny lines telling you how much is in it. Here;s a very important point to remember. Transmissipon fluid is checked and measured by pints unlike the oil dip stick which is in quarts. So the marks on the dip stick for the tranny will be one pint per mark. To add transmission fluid they sell a skinny long tube funnel that goes directly into the stem that holds the dip stick. You must shut the engine off to add the fluid and restart it in neutral to recheck it. I hope I have been of some service to you and please be kind with your thumbs up for me. good Luck, Raz
Locate the dip stick on the transmission its a very short one it on the front of the transmisson. Using a transmission funnel (it has a long skinny hose) pour fluid through the dipstick hole. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA, contact if you need more help
I dont think there is one there is a small tank for the fluid on the back side of the motor on the right side if your standing in front of the car its way at the bottom and hard too see you will need a flashlight and a long funnel to fill it
if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of. if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.
there is no dip stick, this is what they call a sealed transmission, the dealer has a guage to measure fluid level at an access plug on the top of the trans, it is a special GM only tool. also the trans fuid temp must be checked with a Tech 2 scanner to verify fluid is at at least 180 F. before the trans is topped off, what are you doing? trying to change the fluid?
