You may not be able to. Some of the newer vehicles have a plug in place of a dipstick for "dealer service only." If there is a dipstick it should be towards the back on the passenger side of the engine on the Equinox.

GuruD is correct, in addition the dipstick is on left side of tranny just below the motor mount. there is a bolt holding the dipstick in place. 2 man job. 1 below to hold socket in place, 1 above with long extension and ratchet to loosen bolt. then use a small funnel with long tube to fill while the person below holds the tube in place and check while filling

found that if you remove the front motor mount the dipstick is easy to access, as opposed using extensions from above, the dipstick does have cold fill markings
