Default 99 Camry CE V6 automatic trans

There is absolutely NOTHING in my Camry manual telling one how to properly
check the AT fluid level. Other cars I have owned differ greatly in this
respect.

I KNOW that the vehicle has to be warmed up, However, should be engine be
running when the AT fluid level is checked? If so, in Neutral? in Park?
Obviously on level ground. I've had other vehicles, all had differing
methods for checking the AT level.

David.

Just put it on a level surface with the vehicle running. Gear position
doesn't matter.

Yeah, they like to scare folks into bringing their cars into me. You should
see this MB E320 I was working on today. There weren't any specifications
on ANYTHING! Not even in AllData! Everything was "as specified by a MB
dealer". Had to call the local dealer just to figure out what oil to put
in it. Oh, and there isn't a dipstick. That's a factory service tool.

A local mechanic was telling me about working on an MB recently. He had
to buy the CD set for the particular car, which was not cheap. The engine
had
to be disassembled and shipped to California for machine work. Boring the
cylinders alone cost $1500.

Owning something like this is, to me, overrated. The cars are overpriced,
over engineered,
and can be overly troublesome

MB has always been overated, quality-wise, but especially in the last 10 years or
so.

If you're draining old fluid, it helps a bit also to drain the fluid
into a pan, then pour this into an old milk jug or so to estimate how
much new fluid to put in. Should be about 2 liters or so, give or
take.

That would take some of the stress out of measuring the fluid level.
