    There is no dipstick for the A/T. To fill, you would need to use fill plug on the tranny.

    Welcome to TW!

    Our trucks are blessed with not having one. Have to get underneath the truck and fill from there. There's a whole write up on this.... just search for it.

    Yeah, there's a procedure that requires you get the ATF into a certain temperature range to check fluid level. PITA
    Awesome write-up by Mountain Lion on flushing and checking level.
