Need help with a couple of items (and risking a little embarrassment).
1) I have the transmission light on and won't go out. I wanted to check transmission fluid and can't find the dipstick for it. Anyone tell me where to find it? What else should I be looking for?

2) my car wants to sway with every crease, crevice, or bump in the road. Is there an easy fix or do I have to have major front end work?

2. how old are your tires? wear and tread pattern seem to be the major culprits in tramlining. if you're experiencing bump steer, your suspension damping may be the culprit. there are other possibilities but fixing these components usually solves the issue.
