Drive the car long enough to fully warm up the transmission. Put the car in "Park", engage the parking brake and allow the engine to idle. Remove the dipstick for the transmission and wipe it clean. Fully reinstall, then remove the dipstick. Note the level of fluid...should be between the "add" and "full" marks, not be dark or smell burnt.

How do you check transmission fluid in a 2003 Toyota Solara?

Since you're asking about transmission 'fluid' rather than lubricant I'll guess you're asking about an automatic transmission. Look under the hood and you'll find two dipsticks (locations are different for the 4 and 6 cylinder engines). One dipstick is for checking oil, the other is for transmission fluid. With the engine completely warmed to full operating temperature remove the transmission dipstick, wipe it off, reinsert fully then remove again. Check the level. If it's low you can add fluid but if you've never changed transmission fluid in your '03 it's due for a full flush and refill anyway. If the level checks ok look carefully at the color of the fluid. If it's bright red you're in good shape. If it's dark colored and especially if it smells burned then you're definitely ready for a trip to the transmission shop. Cheers
