If this is a 2.4 L, it says 2.4 L Twin Cam, the dipstick is next to the firewall, on the engine side closer to the windshield. There should be a yellow dipstick. If this is a 2.2 L, it says 2200 SFI on black plastic box or intake plenium, I believe that what looks like the oil fill cap, on the engine side close to the front of the car, MAY also have a dipstick built into the oil fill cap. Not positive Hopefully this helps

I will check it out when it stops raining here. Thanks for you assistance.............


I've got a 2000 model (I believe), and mine is located under the oil cap itself. The cap and dipstick are combined, oddly enough.
