You can check it yourself. The dip stick tool you need to buy is 9336A. This dip stick comes in tool kit 9336A-9541. You can get if off line for a few dollars. To check it remove dipstick tube cap and insert in to fill tube 16.69 inches when trans is warm. Read the stick. Should be in the normal operating level

Keep in mind the reason car makers stopped putting dipsticks on their trans is too many drivers were screwing up their transmissions by checking fluid levels at the wrong temperature. Determine what temperature you're supposed to check fluid levels at and make sure (use an IR thermometer) that is the only temp you check it at.

What about the owner with sense to check transmission fluid at the right temperature! No dipstick, battery inside the fender well, who designs this shit?!
