I own a 98 sun fire and a 01 town and country. There is a well known trick for checking the trans fluid on the town and country which is taking the oil dipstick marking a certain measurement on it with a grinder and inserting it into the trans fluid input .does anyone know if I can do the same with my sunfire I don’t think paying the dealership will be cheap.

Never heard of this.
Do you have a transmission leak?
Any shop can put the car on a lift and check the fluid level you dont need a dealer.
If you have a jack and 4 jack stands you can do it yourself.
