X2!

If you're not going to plan to buy another Chevy just because you can't figure out where to put in the ATF (been in the same location for decades ) you shouldn't be driving anything, not even a Ford. (A bicycle might be an exception)

Check it while the car is running (and warmed up), and on a level surface. And DON'T overfill it! Unlike the engine, the marks on the stick are usually pints, not quarts. You can always add more, but you'll have a hell of a time getting it back out if you overfill.

You'll need one of those long funnels with a small end on it and be sure you use the right fluid (there are severall types)!

Also, I hope you know how to check the fluid in an automatic..! If the engine isn't running it will read low....!!! I would assume everyone knows that, but if you don't know where the fluid goes, it's very possible you don't know how to check it...!!!
