There is no dipstick on a '98 Oldsmobile Cutlass, so you must take it to a mechanic and have the transmission serviced after 100,000 miles (per the owner's manual). Poor design if you ask me.

There is a dipstick probably with a red cap on it that pulls out. Have the car on a level surface, engine at operating temperature. Pull stick out wipe it off and look on the stick for possible specifics. It may say "check when hot at idle in park" or " check while hot in neutral". etc. Insert back in and see where level is versus where it should be.
