What is the best way to check the oil in a 700R4.
Hot, cold, car running, in park or neutral?
Please let me know.
Thanks

I thought that was the process, but I was not sure.

Johnswift has given the factory method of checking fluid which is 100% correct, but the problem with this method is the transmission needs to be hot not the engine and that could take 20+ miles of driving, that takes to long. I have rebuilt and or installed *many* transmissions and an old timer tought me a method years ago which is; check it when cold and fill it to the bottom of the crosshatch or to the add mark if there is no crosshatch on dipstick, no higher and it will be perfect every time with this method. Most new transmissions have a cold fill mark on dipstick anyways. Engine still must be running with any method.
