Q: Want to check transmission fluid level

Where do I check the transmission fluid level on my car?

There should be a transmission dipstick located near the rear of the engine. Bring the engine to operating temperature and park the vehicle on a level surface. With your foot on the brake, move the gear selector through all the gears and then back to park. Apply the emergency brake and leave the engine running. Remove the dipstick and wipe it off on a clean rag. Then, reinsert it in the dipstick tube. Remove the dipstick again and check the level; it should be between the "hot" add and full marks, if not you should add fluid if not. If you need help with this, your the best option is to have your fluid level and condition checked by a certified mechanic.
