I am changing ATF, front wheels on 8" ramps,raised rear with jacks,checked belly with level,looks level, tried remove filler plug, fluid started pouring out at room temperature (75 F). Screwed in again rightaway. Tried remove center differential filler plug, same thing. It seems these are original fluids. Why overflow at room temperature when car is level ? Is it o.k. to check ATF temperature with laser gun shooting at the bottom of oil pan ? thanks.
Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.
When you removed the large fill plug, was the engine running?
And I see you asked this about an hour ago, so I'll hold live chat open for a bit to see if you can join
Ok, switching to email format now. Need to know if the car was running when you pulled the plug
Oops no, engine was not running. Can I check fluid temperature shooting with laser temperature gun at oil pan? Should not the ATF pan be at the same temperature as the ATF ?
