Do a search. It's in here somewhere. Either that, or buy a Service Manual!

There is a check plug on the transmission fluid oil pan. It's located across from the drain plug on the oil pan. Easiest thing to do is take it to a quick lube place that checks your fluid levels for you. Or you can do what I do and put it up on jackstands and check it your self. Loosen the bolt enough until it starts to drip. If it doesn't drip, you're low so take off the tranny fluid cap and start adding fluid slowly (a funnel is highly recommended) until you see fluid dripping. It's easiest to do with two people, one to pour fluid and one to watch under the car. Now tighten the bolt and you're good. Another good indication of low fluid level is slips in your shifts or rough shifts. Supposedly these cars don't require a check of transmission fluid so just make sure you listen to what your car is telling you and service your transmission every 60,000 miles (according to Haynes manual).

You forgot the MOST important thing! The car MUST be perfectly level!
