Your vehicle does not have a transmission dipstick. Instead to check your fluid you will have to jack the vehicle up while keeping it level. start the vehicle and allow to warm until the transmission in aprox 50 degrees C. Then remove the fill plug on the transmission is fluid comes out then your full. Put make sure the vehicle is running while you check this. If a messy and a pain if not done on a hoist. Hope this helps.
