No dipstick, should be a filler cap on top of the transmission. However they say you should only have to check the fluid level if you see leaks. Just another way to knock the home mechanic out of servicing your own car. See if Haynes or Chilton's has produced a book covering the trans.

Use a fluid extractor to syphon out a quart ever-so-often to freshen it up, just be sure to use the correct fluid type.
