    I was checking fluids and couldn't locate the auto trans dip stick (2.7). I was looking and looking and then I finally found it. I can't even reach the dude! What's up with the location?? And I imagine I need to check it with the engine running, correct? I'm going to be head over heals in the engine to get that bad boy out!!! :( That stick needs to be another foot longer!
