With the engine fully warmed up, park on a level surface. Shift the transmission through each gear. Pause momentarily between each gear. Once you get back up to Park leave the engine running. Pull the dipstick, located at the back of the engine with a red handle, wipe the dipstick then reinsert it. Pull the dipstick out again and keep it pointed down toward the ground. The fluid level should be in the crosshatched area on the dipstick. If it's at the "add" mark put in 1 pint (half a quart) of Dextron transmisson fluid dectly into the dipstick hole. Then recheck.

Jim no dipstick on these, GM uses the same trans design in the 3.4 and smaller engine transmissions. It's considered a non serviceable transmission. the only time transmission fluid and power steering fluid will ever be low is of there is a leak. If brake fluid is low and there is no leak then it's time to change your pads. http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t2254_ds476437 you may have to delete the spaces in the link but the link has pictures in it to explain how to check the fluid. They designed the transmission like this because 99.9% of transmission dirt comes from people opening the dipstick tube power steering and brake fluid contaminated are gotten the same way.
