Check your transmission fluid level!

I did its good. Am I suppose to check it after its been running or before


While its running and a little warm. Pull the dipstick wipe it off with a rag or paper towel. Put it back in the tube while the engine is running. Pull it back out. It should be full on the hash marks on the dipstick and red like cherry Kool-aid. If it's brown and smells burnt get it flushed. I highly recommend BG brand.
