What do you mean by a better way?
How exactly are you checking it?
Fully warmed up, place vehicle in each gear, back into Park, check dipstick.

On the 07 G6 V6 automatic there is no dipstick. Only a plug near the bottom of the engine on the drivers side. My question is there an alternate way to install a dipstick.

You didnt provide year or engine and 2010 owners manual showed a dipstick.
The plug is on the transmission case and the vehicle has to be raised on a lift, there is no alternative.
If a shop does your oil changes they can check it for you.

Thank you. I did provide that info BTW. I have researched this situation and the 2007 yr does indeed NOT have dip stick. Lifting the entire car to check the trans fluid level seems a little excessive and I thought maybe someone else had found an alternative. Perhaps fashioning a home made dip stick. Just looking for ideas.
