How to test auto trans fluid level -- 1998 Accord EX

Hi;
I don't have the manual. Do I check the fluid level with the engine running or stopped?
Transmission is lurching slightly and has trouble accelerating from a
stop.
Any suggestions?

more likely that the problem is something like ignition than the transmission. when did you last replace plugs/leads?

With engine at full operating temperature, shut engine off and then check WITHIN one minute of shutting the engine down.

None without model, year, engine, and trim level (EX, EX-L, etc). Also report if D4 or S light flashes, or if MIL ("Check Engine light") is on.
