6. TRANSMISSION OIL LEVEL CHECK -- CONTINUED
If indicated oil level is above FULL mark on the oil gauge rod,
remove excess amount of oil from transmission.
1/2 inch (12.7 mm) on oil gauge rod equals about one
gallon of oil.
If indicated oil level is below ADD mark on oil gauge rod, add
enough proper grade oil (WP 0101 00--65) to transmission to
bring oil level between ADD and FULL marks. Start engine
(WP 0012 00) and warm transmission to 180° to 200°F (82° to
93°C). Shut down engine (WP 0019 00).
To verify that proper transmission oil is present, it is
very important that transmission oil is at correct tem-
perature and that correct amount of time (3--5 min-
utes) has passed before reading gauge rod. Failure to
comply may result in an inaccurate oil level reading.
If the vehicle is operated with transmission oil level
below ADD mark reliability and durability of the trans-
mission assembly may be reduced.
Check transmission oil level again to verify that oil levels are
between ADD and FULL marks. Re--install oil gauge rod into
oil filler tube. Close transmission oil filler tube access doors,
close left side engine deck exhaust grille and exhaust deflector
(WP 0032 00).
