If the fluid is cold, the fluid level should be between the
lower two holes, into the area marked “LOW”.
If the fluid level shows low, add sufficient transmission
fluid to bring to the proper level.
Do not overfill. Dirt and water in the transaxle can
cause serious damage. To prevent dirt and water
from entering the transaxle after checking or replen-
ishing fluid, make certain that the dipstick cap is
seated properly.
