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...

It doesn't have one. To check the automatic transmission fluid level the car must be raised level on a lift. From underneath the car on the passenger side of the transmission case you will find a small plug. Remove the plug, if it's full, the fluid will be right at the opening.
