Oil level should be up to the fill plug with the vehicle on level ground.

Apparently not that easy. The hole isn't there, it has to be drilled out. This requires a full strip down of the trans. Or replace the casing with a EF one like mine was.

It can be done in the car. I've done it a few times. It's not impossible to do, you just need a steady hand and a sharp drill bit.

you do it from the inside
take the transmission pan off and there is a blanked off hole in casting where a dipstick should go
its not impossible you just have to know what you are doing
