Checking fluid level

(1) Be sure transmission fluid is at normal operating temperature. Normal operating temperature is reached after approximately 15 miles (25 km) of operation.

(2) Position vehicle on level surface. This is important for an accurate fluid level check.

(3) Shift transmission through all gear ranges and back to Park.

(4) Apply parking brakes.

(5) Verify that transmission is in Park.

(6) Wipe off dipstick handle to prevent dirt from entering fill tube. Then remove dipstick and check fluid level and condition.

(7) Correct fluid level is to FULL mark on dipstick when fluid is at normal operating temperature (Fig. 44).

(8) If fluid level is low, top off level with Mopar Dexron IIE/Mercon. Mopar Dexron II can be used but only if Mercon is not available. Do not overfill transmission. Add only enough fluid to bring level to Full mark.

(9) If too much fluid was added, excess amount can be removed with suction gun and appropriate diameter plastic tubing. Tubing only has to be long enough to extend into oil pan.
