How do you check the tranny fluid on a A4 Vette? Where is the dip stick since the tranny is in the back? :confused:

there isn't one.
From the GM service manual:
Raise and suitably support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle
Start and run the engine at idle.
Apply the brakes.
Shift the transmission into each gear for at least 2 seconds per gear.
Shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and continue to idle the engine for 3 minutes to stabilize the transmission fluid level.
After allowing the fluid level stabilization time and while still in NEUTRAL (engine still running at idle), check the transmission fluid temperature on the driver information center. Specification
Transmission fluid level temperature: 30 to 50°C (86 to 122°F)
If the fluid temperature is above specification, turn off the engine and allow the transmission to cool, then repeat the procedure to this point before proceeding.
With the engine still running at idle, loosen the check/fill plug on the LH side of the transmission oil pan.
Inspect the fluid level:
Any excess fluid will drain when the check/fill plug is loosened.
If no fluid drains, remove the check/fill plug and fill the transmission with DEXRON®-III transmission fluid until the fluid begins to overflow.
Install the check/fill plug. Tighten
Tighten the fill plug to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
Shift the transmission into PARK.
Release the brakes.
Turn off the engine.
Lower the vehicle.
