Low Fluid Level

If the fluid level is within the minimum range (below point A) add the correct specification fluid to be within the hash mark area.

Note: If the fluid level is below the minimum range do not drive your vehicle. An underfill conition can damage the transmission.

Correct Fluid Level

If the fluid level is within the hash mark area (between points A and B) do not add any fluid.

High Fluid Level

If the fluid level is above the maximum range (above point B) fluid may need to be removed. High fluid levels may be caused by a overheating condition. If you have operated your vehicle at high speeds, towing a trailer or in city traffic during hot weather, allow your vehicle to cool for a minimum of 30 minutes before rechecking the level.

Note: An overfill condition can damage the transmission.

Adding Transmission Fluid*
