Just changed the tranny fluid/filter on my 03 T&C. Dealer parts guy said it takes 4 or 5 qts. Haynes book said 4 qts. Have about 4.5 qts in and worked it through all the gears with engine running as book recommends, checking it in park or N. Tough to read dipstick. I think I am still low because only the bottom end is completely coated with fluid. But higher up the stick there are smears of fluid and dry spots, I am guessing from rubbing the tube on the way in/out, which make the reading confusing. For grins I checked with engine off and cold and it is fully coated all the way up in the hot region. So 2 questions... any secrets for reading it with engine running to know between smears of fluid from the dipstick pipe vs actual level. And as a double check, roughly where should I see the level on the dipstick when the engine is off and cold? Thanks!!!!
