[V8] Dip stick for the transmission

no dipstick necessary.
ZF (the transmission manufacturer, the car should have a 5HP-18 
transmission) defined  "life time" as "150.000km", so if the car is 14 
years old now and has more than 100,000 miles, I`d definitely change the 
oil and filter and give it a cleaning. These transmissions need a 
special oil - don´t use your standard ATF! Check here for more:
