You did not tell us how you check the fluid level. I assume that you follow the proper steps to check the tranny fluid as stated in your owner's handbook. If you cannot find the handbook, use the following steps:
(1) Car is at operating temperature and on level ground.
(2) Start the car. Set your parking brake and press the brake pedal firmly.
(3) Move the shift level from P to R, N, D, and so on. Stay in each position for seconds and finally back to P.
(4) Got out of the car and check the fluid level when the engine is still running. The fluid should be pink in color with no bubbles (foaming). Be careful how you clean the dip stick - do not get any linen fibers into the tranny. I usually wipe the dip stick with my finger and clean my finger later.
