Use the dipstick? At the back of the engine (standing at the front of the car) there are two dipsticks. The one on the left is for checking the final drive (front differential) and the one on the right is for checking the transmission. You might have to look for it, being down under a bunch of hoses (fuel lines, vacuum lines, etc),but it is there.
