Welcome to the Board.

The auto trans on your car (daughter's) is a filled for life trans. Basicly if there are no fluid leaks you don't need to check the fluid level because the level will be fine. The red cap is on the fill hole for the trans and there is no dip stick.
There is a way of checking the level. The trans needs to be at a minimum operating temp (or higher) level then a plug is removed from the trans. If the fluid is at the right level the fluid should be level with the plug hole. So in other words if you were to add fluid at that point it would immediatly start draining fluid from the hole if the fluid is at the correct level.
