do you know where the dipstick is?...you must get a special transmission funnel to fill it (about 1.29)...how did you plan on checking the level...must be checked warm in park with the engine running...between the cold and hot hash marks...in the knurled zone~

was it the butyl rubber connection to the radiator...yah them are cheap~...just get it out of the factory, NOT silicone which has a near infinite life~

If you car's trans is the 4T45E trans then there will be no dipstick, there is a *fill plug* located on the converter housing. The *level* plug is at the back of the trans down near the end of the tailshaft next to the passenger side axleshaft. Pull out the level plug and look to see if there is any sign of fluid at the bottom of the port. If not, add fluid thru the port on the top of the converter housing until fluid begins to seep out the level plug port.
