I run JD trans fliud in my car and that stuff is hard to see. I have no problem when the car is not running, easy to get a reading on the dip stick, but when it is running it is a PIA and ends up being a 20 minute ordeal as the car gets hot, has to cool, the fliud has a much less concentric line on the dipstick, etc, etc.

If the fliud is warmed up is the reading accurate if the car is not running?:confused:

Thanks,

John

You could add a bit of type 'f' to give it some colour. I run a 50/50 mix. And yes the engine should be running...:)

Mine is also hard to read. I put a piece of masking tape on the end of the dipstick and it is easy to see what part is wet and what part is dry.
when finished i pull the tape off so it doesn't fall off.
