ok, checking transmission fluid 101 ;)

~take your car around the block. make sure that its nice and warm.
~there are two marks on the dipstick, they both have C` marks. best time to check when the car is at normal running temperature
~have your car running in P or N.
~pull out the dipstick
~wipe it ;)
~put it back in
~pull it out again
anyway seriously now :rolleyes:
~check the level on HIGHEST C` mark. if its upto it its full.

there are also a couple of different styles of dipstics.

there is C and H (instead of C`)
there is a mesh like partern on some (i have no idea how to read those, as there are no temp marks)
There is also a mesh like partern on both sides of the dipstick one is low temp another is high temp.

im not sure what type you have

my dipstick has 3 grooves on it...so should it be up to the top groove? i.e. should i see red fluid all the way up to that groove?
