If your car is a manual transmission, then your kinda out of luck. Its a sealed compartment. You should take it to a garage and have them pull the fill plug on the tranny and have a look. But unless your car is over 200,000. Klicks or leaking don't worry about it.

If you have an automatic, run the car around the block until she is nice and warm. Park it on a flat surface, engage the hand break and leave the car in neutral with the engine running. There is a dipstick by the firewall of the engine compartment. Give that a yank, wipe it and re-insert. Pull it out and have a look. The dipstick will tell you if you need to add or not.

Good luck.

Open the hood and look straight down on the front of the motor. It is in front of the motor by the fan.

Best answer is to check the owner's manual. If car is missing that, go to a Chrysler dealer and pick a manual up. All fluid replacement intervals are spelled out in the manual.
