No dip stick. You have to go under the car. Take out the fill plug and put fluid in until it drips out from the fill plug. Dirty job, ware clothes you want to throw away. Best to do this job in a pit. Make sure you have the correct transmission fluid. Engine oil or transmission. I just did an oil change and it took 6 to 7 qts. of engine oil.

I went to the dealer with the same question and they told me that there wasn't a dipstick, but there were sensors that will tell you if you have a problem.
