i have a 2003 Saturn vue and there is no dipstick for the transmission fluid. its a plug. you have to take you car to a shop and get them to check it... i know it sounds crazy. but they usually have to put it on a lift to get to it.
I had my compass go wacky on my 2004 saturn vue there is a procedure in the owners manual it involves pressing the button on the mirror and driving slowly in a circle yes this is true check your manual
