The dipstick? On my 2013 it's under the plastic engine cover on the back left.

I check mine while the engine is running and the transmission pump operating. Without the pump running, the fluid will run back into the transmission from the cooler and make it read high.

That's how I've checked it but it seems to read differently each time
