Customer car, on the dyno.
It has some sort of tractor/hydraulic fluid in it. Customer read that it's the hot ticket.
Twin turbo setup.

This car has the Lokar fancy locking dipstick setup.

Any chance that this dipstick seals too good and the vent is now the only breather?

It's blown enough fluid out that it reads below the dipstick. Yeah, it's that bad.

First step is to verify proper fluid level. Full running in Park level is even with the case/pan junction. The only breather is the breather.

I verified it's the correct Lokar dipstick. Frame is in the way to remove the pan to check the calibration on the stick. But I get you, did that calibration on my own car.
Car is nose down on the chassis dyno......I hate that about our dyno. I have tuned many, but the only other TH400 car had no issues. Although it had massive issues at the track because the case was not cut correctly for the ultrabell and the pump gasket never sealed. Guess where the fluid escapes!

Hutch, it did this at part throttle stuff low load. Did it more on pulls, but I've only made a couple.

Ok, yet another issue with this not ready for prime time car...….

Thanks guys.
