1999 dipstick

This is kind of embarrassing, but I cannot find the tranny fluid dipstick on the 1999 Forester I bought a few months ago. Does not appear to be where the manual says it is. Any help is appreciated.

I am having the lag/hesitation problem that many others seem to have.

Thank you,
Kirk

Thanks, I found it in the daylight. Low transmission fluid is not the problem.

auto vs manual could be different, i thought the diff's just had a allen bolt that comes out and you fill into the diff itself. i don't have a differential dip stick

Rear diffs have the 2 square inset bolts, one for draining it and one to fill. The upper fill hole is also the fill level.

Front diffs have a drain plug and a dipstick. The dipstick hole is how you fill it. Doesn't matter if it's manual or auto, you have a dipstick in your front diff. If you don't have one then it's missing.
