June 15, 2007, Newsletter Issue #194: Check transmission fluid

Tip of the Week

When checking transmission fluid (which should be checked monthly), keep the engine running, and parking brake on; be sure the gear is in ´park´. With one rag or paper towel, remove the dipstick; with a second rag/towel wipe dipstick dry, re-insert it and remove again. Dipstick will show level of fluid, either ´full´ or ´add´. If needed, add the approved type of fluid (you may need a funnel), but Do NOT overfill! Replace dipstick snugly.
