'00 3.4L (FWD) tranny fluid level?

Hello,
Does anyone know of a way to check the level of one of these front wheel drive trannies that don't have a dipstick? I refuse to bring it into a dealer for some BS thing like this.
The car is an 2000 Olds Alero, with that coolant leaking 3.4.
Thanks! -marc

You're supposed to remove the plug (not sure if this is the actual fill plug or another one) with the engine running, and if the level is below the bottom of the threaded hole, add fluid until it starts draining out.

plug
It's not a fill plug, just a very small plug on the right (long side) side of the transmission. It looks identical to a pressure line plug. (which is too bad, as it's easy to get confused as to which plug to pull. The big clue will be that if you pull the pressure plug, trans fluid will be pumped out in a fairly rapid fashion)
