Check your antifreeze coolant level is it going down , is your oil milky ? does your oil smell like gas , do a compression test this will help to determine if you have bad rings ( gas getting into oil ) When did you get your oil changed last ( filter plugged ) When you say "high", do you mean when you first pull the dipstick out without wiping it? If so this is normal, as the oil is pumped through the motor it "looks" high, but it's not. The oil gets splashed onto the dipstick, making it appear that the oil level is higher. Check the oil when the motor has been off for awhile to get the true reading. When you first pull the dipstick out wipe it with a clean rag and reinsert it all the way in, pull it back out, this will be the true reading. Measure your oil level when parked on level ground.

There is no dipstick. Level is checked via a specific bolt hole after engine is warm and running and the car is 'level'. If the transmission fluid is slightly dripping out of this bolt hole, or is even with the threads, then the level is correct.
