Hi, I have monitored and maintained my vehicle fluid levels myself for a long time with no problems, so I was annoyed that my 2009 Caliber RT manual said that customers checking/adding their own CVT fluid was not recommended. What is the procedure? Are there any instructions online I can print out?

It is in the service manual, which you can download from here.
you need a special dipstick and a way to read the transmission temperature.
Use the chart in the manual. Without a way to read the temp, you can use the factory fill level in the chart if the air temp is between 70 and 100F and the car is cool.

Take a look at these pictures, please ask any questions you may have.

For all practical purposes, if you don't have any leaks, you will not lose any fluid.
