    correct way to check trans fluid

    i got this from alldata
    2006 Dodge Magnum V8-5.7L VIN 2

    Vehicle Level Transmission and Drivetrain Automatic Transmission/Transaxle Service and Repair Check Oil Level Check Oil LevelNotesSpecial Tools

    Dipstick 9336

    CHECK OIL LEVEL
    1. Verify that the vehicle is parked on a level surface.
    2. Remove the dipstick tube cap. WARNING: Risk of accident from vehicle starting off by itself when engine running. Risk of injury from contusions and burns if you insert your hands into the engine when it is started or when it is running. Secure vehicle to prevent it from moving off by itself. Wear properly fastened and close-fitting work clothes. Do not touch hot or rotating parts.
    3. Actuate the service brake. Start engine and let it run at idle speed in selector lever position P.
    4. Shift through the transmission modes several times with the vehicle stationary and the engine idling
    5. Warm up the transmission, wait at least 2 minutes and check the oil level with the engine running. Push the Oil Dipstick 9336 into transmission fill tube until the dipstick tip contacts the oil pan and pull out again, read off oil level, repeat if necessary.
    NAG1 Transmission Fill Graph

    NOTE: The dipstick will protrude from the fill tube when installed.

    1. Check transmission oil temperature using the appropriate scan tool. NOTE: The true transmission oil temperature can only be read by a scan tool in REVERSE or any forward gear position.
    2. The transmission Oil Dipstick 9336 has indicator marks every 10mm . Determine the height of the oil level on the dipstick and using the height, the transmission temperature, and the Transmission Fluid Graph, determine if the transmission oil level is correct.
    3. Add or remove oil as necessary and recheck the oil level.
    4. Once the oil level is correct, install the dipstick tube cap

    I have not seen any menu options that would allow you to read the transmission temp. The cars would have to have a temperature sensor in the transmission in order for the Predator to be able to read it. I don't know if the LX's have such a sensor...and if they do, I don't know if it is only on certain models or years.

    Read my write-up, the NAG1 has more than one temperature sensor. The Predator is not capable of displaying transmission temperature...

    I think I read once on here to use a 36 inch zip tie and measure the fluid once you have it checked at the stealership. That is a lot cheaper the a $50 dip stick.
