yes they can be a pain in the anus to check. Usually you need to let it sit idling for 5 or so minutes and then recheck. What happens is that long tube will stay wet with trans fluid and will cause issues with reading.

Thanks I will try that it seems to check easier when it is cold so I was wondering if the cold check will be ok.

yes you can check it cold. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the cross hatch's though. Once warmed up, it should expand enough to be at the top of the cross hatch's.
