I got a message on my Acura APP saying the Transmission fluid is too hot! but the message disappeared later on and never came back since. I opened the hood looking for the Transmission dipstick to check on the fluid level but couldnt find it!! Anyone knows where it is located?

I believe there is no dipstick on this model.

Read your owners manual.

If your tyranny fluid overheated, you may have a serious problem

You shouldn't see an overheated transmission unless something is wrong. There is probably a code associated with the dash message the Acura tech can look up. I would let the tech know what were the driving conditions when you saw the warning (driving mode, speed, how long were you driving before warning, city rush hour or normal traffic, hwy speeds, off road, hauling a heavy load/towing, weather, outside temp, etc..). I would even think about changing out the 10AT fluid if the trans did overheat. Over heated fluid might start to breakdown and cause more damage down the road.
