Do I check the transmission fluid level in my Chrysler 300M when the car is off or on? Hot or cold?

Asked by Jul 18, 2013 at 10:39 PM about the 2004 Chrysler 300M STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I wanted to first check the level of my transmission fluid....but want to be sure I'm doing
it correctly.  My transmission is acting up - doesn't want to go from 2nd to 3rd on
occassion.  Other times...it shifts beautifully.  My car is has an automatic transmission
(2004 Chrysler 300M).  I absolutely LOVE this car!!!  Want to keep it...but I can't afford
a new transmission right now.  Anyone have any previous experience with their 300's
transmission that might be able to offer some advice?

1. Do you have over 30K on the car? 2. Have ever serviced the transmission? If you answered yes to 1 and no to 2 then have the tranny serviced, your filter may be getting plugged in the trans causing a supply shortage of fluid to the internals of the tranny which will shorten the life of the trans. Don't second guess tranny trouble, they are expensive to replace, a few dollars now could stop a lot of expense later.
