Hehehe no one stole your auto dip stick. I thought the same myself when i took a look at my mates EL the first time. I seems that late EL and onwards they axed the dip stick and you gotta use your finger in the filler hole to see if it's full.
Apparently these new 4 speeds are a sealed unit, by meaning you don't need to get them serviced that often, but we did one on dad's EL at 80k.
