check thee fluid

I did and this is the crazy part. When we changed the radiator I know we loss some trans. fluid but the stick still shows full.


Did u check it with engine running

I checked it with the engine running and with it off. What would happen if I add to much? I might just add more and see what happens. As I said, I know I loss some but the stick still shows I have plenty.

I added another quart today to see if that would change anything. No luck.
