OK – Dumb questions –
Go easy on me – I’m NOT a mechanic (understatement)
I had a transmission cooler added the other day, along with a tow hitch. I wanted to check the transmission fluid level to make sure that the guy at UHaul that installed the hitch and cooler didn’t lose too much fluid – he says he lost a very small amount – about a cup – from what was in the hoses.
No big deal, I figured I would just check it when I got home.
I can’t find a transmission fluid dipstick!!??
How do I check the fluid level? – If he lost “about a cup” is that a big deal?
Does ATF flow through the extra cooler and radiator? Or does coolant from the radiator flow through the transmission?? – The new cooler is connected to the radiator but I’m not sure if transmission fluid flows through a closed system inside the cooling system or if coolant (anti-freeze) flows to the transmission. I’m not sure if he was referring to a small amount of coolant or a small amount of transmission fluid. They are closed or I would just ask him.
