If you have a SkyActiv automatic, there is no transmission fluid dip stick. I know because I was hearing a strange noise from my transmission and thought I would check the fluid level, so I looked for the same non-existant dip stick. It turns out I had a problem, the dealer replaced my transmission at 44K miles under warranty (2012 M3 touring automatic)

I have a 2013 mazda 3 skyactiv recently my car has been high reving before shifting and as far as i know my transmission fluid has never been changed since i got my car im around 54000 miles. Could that be causing my problem also no accelerating?
