6. TRANSMISSION OIL LEVEL CHECK -- CONTINUED
Park vehicle on a level surface with parking brake ap-
plied. Operate engine (WP 0012 00) and warm trans-
mission oil to temperature between 180° to 200°F
(82° to 93°C). To reach desired transmission oil tem-
perature it may be necessary to perform high range
stall. To perform high range stall: depress and hold
brake in applied position, place transmission in 3rd
range and run engine at full throttle for no longer than
30 seconds. Return engine speed to idle. If required,
repeat procedure after 60 seconds of idling to attain
proper transmission oil temperature. Shut down engine
(WP 0019 00).
To verify that proper transmission oil is present, it
is very important that transmission oil is at correct
temperature and that correct amount of time (3--5
minutes) has passed before reading gauge rod.
Failure to comply may result in an inaccurate oil
level reading. If vehicle is operated with trans-
mission oil level below ADD mark, reliability and
durability of the transmission may be reduced.
Open left side engine deck grille and exhaust deflector (WP
0032 00). Open transmission oil filler tube access doors.
Remove oil gauge rod from filler tube, clean oil gauge rod.
Insert oil gauge rod into transmission oil filler tube. Remove
oil gauge rod and verify that oil level is between ADD and
Excess oil may be removed from transmission
using the AOAP valve.
