By Deanna Sclar .

Wrong fluid or too much fluid is very bad for the transmission. But running and on level ground is correct for checking. There are 2 ranges on the dipstick, one for cold and the other for hot.

The reason for checking when both hot and cold is transmission fluid expands as it is heated. Note that if you drive the car at highway speed for a long period of time and then attempt to check the fluid level "hot" after that you WILL get a false reading (the fluid level will appear "high", when in fact, it is perfectly OK).
