mike :

Hi you are suppose to check the fluid at 30 degres c. We hook the car up to computer to watch the temperature. Then there is a plug in the bottom of the transmission it is recessed up in there at temp fluid will come out of the hole with plug removed and car running in park at temp. Thanks mike


You mean I can't do this myself? I need to take it to a shop? That's the only way? Can't refill from the engine compartment?

mike :

No it is done from under the car. no dipstick. Mainly is done at a shop. So it is done at the right temperature. Mike
