Transmission Fluid Levels---88 Bounder

88 Bounder 454 Chey chassis---First not sure if you check the transmission level in park or neutral---The dip stick while sitting cold in park is like 1"-1 1/2" above the full marker---After running about 20 minutes in park in shows right add the add line---So if I add a quart it seems the cold reading will be way up on the stick????---Thanks

A lot of the time the cold mark on transmission will fib to you. I only trust the marks when I am level, motor running, in park, and the transmission is hot.

Chevies (GM) are checked hot, (trans warmed up I should say not just water temp) engine running in 'park'.. Mopar's are checked in neutral. As Ekc said, don't worry about the cold reading. Not sure about Fords, never owned one.
PS,, don't add a full quart all at once, add a little , check it, and add more as needed. You don't want to overfill it !
