Yep. For the auto the transmission temp has to be within a certain range. Fluid expands and if you have too much fluid in there, it will cause aeration from being overfilled and cause a slew of shifting problems and failures. That's for this particular trans.

Transmission filter is not serviceable.

What Country are you located in ?
I hope you can understand the gearheads , they like alot of bling unlike me . I just need a shot .
But anyway , we are supposed to bring the Transmission up to an operating temperature and allow the ATF to drool out the overfill port untill we get drips and then button the bolt back in .. how we check the operating temps is Debatable ...

If the car has a digital water temperature readout this is close enough. The temp range is rather wide. Otherwise use a scan guage or other ODBII reader to get the temperature. Anyone doing their own work should already have these tools. If OP had someone else do it they need to take the car back there with this information and have them verify the ATF fill level.

Keep in mind that the auto trans has its own oil cooler. It can run a lot cooler than the engine even after half an hour of driving. It is actually rather difficult to get it hot enough in the winter.

Your knowledge never ceases to amaze me.
