anybody ever found any type of modification to install a dip stick into the automatic transmission for this model? Sure would like to check mine more often.

shshawaii, my dipstick shows just fine but it is wabbly as if it is not connected down there. I'll get under it soon to see but it is hard for me to do!
God bless Ed

Make sure 5r55e Tranny DipTube upper bracket bolt is tight to the side of the engine block.
Tranny DipTube is a 2piece affair, lower shorter section + upper longer section; pics below.
These are just press fit into the right side of 5r55e Tranny case; gets loose over time.
Had a tiny bit of ATF leaking near bottom of my DipTube, enough to attract grime, not enough to drip;
pulled out DipStick; using an Extension+HexSocket just large enough to fit over top end of DipTube,
gave the DipTube a few gentle taps to reset it into the TrannyCase; that seemed to have fixed leak.
