If you have a 2.2 engine you check the trnsmission on a lift. On the right side of transmission is a drain plug. You take plug out and if fluid runs out it is full.

If you have a manual, you should not be checking the fluid. Unless there is a leak detected. In this case, you need to bring your car to a mechanic...
