the usual way, with a special cone shaped transmission fluid funnel~ have you checked the level hot while running in Park?....where did the fluid go? do you have a leak at the flex connections leading to the radiator?

it might be by bolts to drain the pan & one for proper fill level. newer GM vehicles have this setup.

I shake my head every time someone that is not a certified GM ASE Tech, answers a question. This does not, I repeat, this does not have a dipstick! It has a black fill screw off cap on the driver side, way down at the bottom, inside the engine compartment.You can't check it while it running by the dipstick, because it doesn't have one! You have to check it with a sight plug and this procedure is not for the amateur.
