Checking the tranmissiong fluid is just like checking oil. Fisrt thing you want to do is get the tranmission up to operating temp. Drive it around the block a few times to do that. With the car level as possible, leave the car ruuning an dpop the hood. Look for the tranmission dip stick. When found pull out and check levels. If low put the correct trans fluid in through the dip stick opening. You will nedd to use a funnel. If you see a lot of metal shavings or trans fluid smells burnt. You should change it. Should be done every 30,000 miles or 30 months. whatever comes first.

if yours is the 2.4 auto, then it's the 4t40 tranny and there is no dipstick, just a bolt in the side of the tranny, pull the bolt out, and add fluid til it comes out the small hole on the side... replace bolt, put filler cap back on and u are good to go...
