Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am very curios as to how to check the transmission fluid on a 2001 chevy cavalier. I have had my car since 2001 and still have not found anywhere to check the fluid or fill it. My manuel states that a mechanic needs to check the fluid. It states that the car does not use the fluid but needs it in there.
