How do I check tranny fluid in 98 cavalier

edited November -1 in Repair and Maintenance
I have a 1998 Z24 Chevy Cavalier with a 4-speed automatic transmission fluid. The car has 183,000 miles on it and lately when the tranny is warmed up it takes about 3 seconds for the tranny to engage when switching from reverse to forward. I went to check the tranny fluid, but there is no dipstick. There is just a threaded cap. How do I know if I need to put some tranny fluid in and how much. How do I measure it with no dipstick?? There is no visible major leak that i am able to see, but you never know. THANKS
