I was wondering what is the procedure for checking the trans fluid and oil? I dont have an owners manual so I just do it like you do any other car but I always get mixed results. I recently got my oil changed at a quick lube and they said I needed to get my transmission fluid changed because it has too much trans fluid but I beg to differ. I drove my car about 60 miles roundtrip the other day and when I got home I left the car going put it in neutral and the fluid was alittle above halfway between the min and max marks. Also about the oil level, should I check it right after the car has run or after the car has been sitting, I checked it after the car had been sitting overnight and the level was alittle above the max mark, but the day before I checked it when I was filling with gas and it was alittle below the max mark and I didnt add any oil at all. Thanks for your help in advance.

The fluid level on that transmission
should be checked at idle in park. When
cold, the level should be about 10 mm
below the minimum mark. When warm, it should
be between the minimum and maximum
marks.

Randy is right about ATF level. About engine oil, you can either check it after you car has been sitting overnight, or when the engine is at operation temp. When the engine is warm, turn off the engine and let it sit for a few minutes. I'd say most of the oil will settle down after 2 or 3 minutes when the engine is warm. You can check the oil level then.
