That's because there isn't a tranny dipstick...LOL!!!

The only way to check the fluid level is by jacking the car up, and while the engine is running and tranny is in neutral and at operating temperature, you remove the fluid level plug and make sure the fluid is right up to the threads. You cannot turn off the engine until the plug is reinstalled or the fluid will come gushing out!

Best to let a technician do this.

Don't start a "dang Kia" comment for this....GM has trannies from 2000 models on that are like this...

Hmmm..

I couldn't find it in the manual either. However it did say that a Kia service tech. should check the tranny fluid. This leads me to believe -and I'm pretty sure I've read it some where else, that these new trannys are a sealed type. It may require the removal of a bolt or opening a port/valve to check the fluid.
