Check trans fluid while running?
Do you check transmission fluid level with car running or not? Running is what I have done on other cars. I am having the sluggish reverse when hot. When I got the car one month ago a major selling point was rebuilt trans for you guessed it, sluggish reverse.
Want to start with the fluid and I have already contacted the dealer and guy who rebuilt trans to get them to stand behind whatever this turns out to be.
As a side, I got the car warm, drove a bit too warm up trasnmission and while running fluid is not even at bottom cold mark. It is nice and new fluid at least.
Found it, check well running, I am definitly low then. When cold car hits reverse fine, usual symptom from thread I have read. I will try fluid first and go from there.
