Just like with engine oil, transmission fluid is easy to check. There is a dipstick similar to that used to check engine oil levels. It is usually farther back on the engine. Pull it out and check the levels of the transmission fluid.

Yes it does. The proper way to check automatic transmission fluid is to check it while engine is at idle.
If it is an automatic there is a small red cap on the transmission itself under where the air filter box is. You will need a long funnel to not spill. You can check the level by running the engine and removing a small plug under the transmission. If the fluid is trickling out it is full, if it is pouring it is overfilled.
The transmission fluid dipstick for the Oldsmobile Alero does not exist. In place of the traditional fluid checking mechanism, the Alero has two caps. One of these is red, is located in the vicinity of the master brake cylinder, and is for refilling transmission fluid. The other cap, or plug, is 15mm and roughly halfway down the transmission. Loosen it carefully. If fluid comes out, the transmission fluid is good. If not, however, more fluid must be added.
It is recommended to check fluid in a warm engine, not an overheated engine.
The transmission fluid dipstick is located on the passenger side near the top rear of the engine. With the engine running, remove the dipstick and check the level on the stick.

It has a sealed tranny. No dipstick means you can't check it and it shouldn't leak or be low so take it to a shop!!!

Transmission fluid can only be checked with the engine and transmission at normal operating temperature. You will need to drive about 5 miles to achieve this. If you check it with the engine cold you will get a false reading and could do more harm than good if you added fluid. Leave the engine running and then check the dipstick level. If it needs fluid, at a little bit at a time then check the level again. Overfilling will cause irreparable damage to the transmission.
Check fluid level with engine warm in park, also check linkage from shifter to transmission casing.
If you have an automatic transmission, check with the engine warm and running, The dip stick is located on the passenger side rear of the engine.
