EDIT----1ST EDIT DELETED (SEE 2ND EDIT)
2nd EDIT ---Later research shows the only thing wrong with following info is that I called the trans a 09A (Jatco JF506) and its a 09G (aisin TF-605n). Everything else is accurate.
I looked this up for you. You would have the O9A trans (6 speed). It looks like its the same check procedure as for the older 01M trans.
Jack up car. It must be level. Support car safely. Your car probably has under body "covers" that will need removed. Then start engine and allow trans to warm to 35-45 degrees Celsuis (checking temp). Verify temp with scan tool data or use a infrared thermomter to measure the trans temp on the pan. Note: this process must be started with the trans cold, and if your too slow, it will warm up past the check temperature, forcing you to let it cool off.
When the trans reaches checking temperature, then pull the plug on the pan, and fluid must run out. If it just barely drips or none comes out then you will need to add till it does run out.
Prior to April 06 cars will have fill tube, after April 06 there is no fill tube and it fills through the check plug.'' Adding will probably require some creativity on your part with added difficulty on Late vehicles with no fill tube. Either way I use a pump to add. Note you have to do it fast or trans will warm past check temp.
Hope this helps. On a side note.. if your having problems you'll need to check for codes. This trans is used by many makes. Other makes call it a JF506E. We've rebuilt bunches of them mostly in Jaguar X types. Have a common problem with slipping in 4th or losing 4th alltogether. IIRC.
