2 Answers


With the engine fully warmed up and running park on a reasonably level surface. Starting with the shifter in park move the shifter through all the gears (park, reverse, neutral, etc.). Pause at each gear. When you get back to park leave the engine running. Pop the hood and pull the dipstick. Wipe off the dipstick and reinsert it. Pull the dipstick out again and check the fluid level. It should be in the crosshatch area. If it's at the low mark put a half of a quart directly into the dipstick hole. HTH. -Jim
