    Then drive it on some slopes making sure the fluid makes its way around, park it for a little bit, then check, and refill if necessary.

    No prob. I know how it goes. Ask a specific question, get a generalized answer. It's the TW way.

    Next time might I suggest putting the word exaclty in bold and red. :D
