Is this a stupid question?
I just drained my torque converter, dropped my tranny pan and installed new filter & filled with 12 quarts of tranny fluid. I shifted through all gears, leaving it in each gear for 20 seconds. Then, drove it for 15-20 minutes through town & it shifted and ran fine. Got back home, put in neutral, pulled the dipstick & spent 20 minutes trying to determine where the tranny fluid level was at. It is glossy up past the crosshatches but the only real "red" is liquid is in the bubble hook on the bottom & up to the bottom hole. My question is, if the fluid is up above a hole will the hole be filled up (closed) with fluid? Or, does the top of the glossing of the dipstick mean that's where the fluid is? I know that I do NOT want to overfill it!!!!!
