Question, what is the proper way to check the transmission fluid in a 2001 Kia Rio, and where should the fluid be when hot and cold on the dip stick?

Thanks in advance

I do not believe the dip stick has a "cold fluid" marking on it. Bring it up to normal operating temp (drive around the block a few times), keep it running and check to see if the fluid is between the correct marks on the dip stick.

Owner's manual states: 30 minutes driving time to warm fluid.
2 minutes idle, level ground.
"Cold" mark is for reference only.
