Transmission fluid level check.

Hey guys, great site here!

I have searched around but had no luck. My truck didnt come with an owners manual, and Im unsure how to properly check the transmission fluid. Does the truck need to be running or not?

Thanks for the help

Hey man, Here ya go. Get truck to operating temp. Set e- brake, Pull shift lever into each gear for a couple of seconds(r,n,d,2,1) and then go back to neutral. Check fluid with truck idling. Use the top set of hash marks for this method.

I've noticed also in quite a few manuals that it takes the tranny longer to get fully up to operating temp than the motor. Most manuals say to drive the vehicle for at least 15 straight miles to get the tranny completely up to temp.
