Question about 1993 Saturn SL2
Make sure the engine has been at operating tempurature for at least 5 minutes. Open the hood and locate the TRANSMISSION dipstick, this one is different from the ENGINE OIL dipstick. It is usually bigger and located closer to the firewall in the engine compartment, if you have any doubts about finding it, look in your owners manual, it should tell you where it is. When you pull the correct dipstick you can tell becuase the fluid is RED and not BLACK or BROWN like engine oil. The car should be on a level surface and the engine should be idling in PARK to check the fluid correctly. Pull the dipstick, wipe it with a clean cloth and then re-insert it and pull it out again. There should be clear markings on the end of the dipstick to show where the level is. Again, check in your owners manual to see where normal levels are marked. If you don't have an owners manual, just look to see if the level is at least between two marks; an uppper and a lower. If no fluid shows on the stick, you are running low on fluid and could damage the transmission, have it filled immediately.
Hope this helps.

Checking automatic transmission fluid
The 5R55N transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for
fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid.
However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not
working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you
notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
