If it is sealed (no dipstick), you don’t...or the manufacturer doesn’t want you to know how to. They call the fluid “lifetime” fluid. Each make has a way to check and change the fluid. It is critical that transmission fluid not be over or under filled. I do research on the internet on how to do it. YouTube will probably have a video. Many dodge makes you use the oil dipstick in a plug hole in top of transmission. Too complex to explain.

On my Charger SRT8, you have to purchase a special transmission dipstick...there was not one installed from the factory.
