Transmission Fluid Check

Where the heck is the transmission fluid dipstick located on a 300C?

There is no dipstick for our transmissions. You'll either need to get it checked at the dealer or buy a a Miller Tool #9336A used in conjunction with the chart below based on temperature. Here's one place you can get it -Miller Special Tools.

This is the chart...

The only problem w/ that graph is you need to know the trans temp to be accurate..

I have an '07 300 SRT8 w/65K on it. Before the warrenty ran out I took it to the dealer because every once in a while I would be driving down the road, and I would step on the gas and nothing, it would rev a little but no pick up at all. If I shifted to neutral and back to drive it was fine. They told me there was an issue with the transmission leaking and they fixed it. The problem resurfaced and now it is out of warranty and they want $100+ just to look at it. So I looked through the forums and found the zip tie and graph sections (very helpful). Rather than a zip tie I just grabbed a long dipstick from a previous vehicle, cleaned it off and stuck it in till it bottomed out and removed it and there are 3.75 inches of fluid depth from the bottom of the dipstick to the fluid level. When I looked at the graph that translated to 95mm which is off the chart regardless of the temp. Am I doing this wrong or did the dealer overfill it. If they overfilled it what damage may have been done in the last 30K miles?

i would think that the dip stick would be vehicle transmission specific .

SPX Miller Special Tools | Detail: 9336A - DIPSTICK
According to the instructions that came with the charts:

Quote:
Warm up the transmission, wait at least 2 minutes and check the oil level with the engine running. Push the Oil Dipstick 9336 into transmission fill tube until the dipstick tip contacts the oil pan and pull out again, read off oil level, repeat if necessary.

NOTE: The dipstick will protrude from the fill tube when installed.
The level is measured from the bottom of the dipstick not the top.

Other people hat have bought the tool say that the measurements start from the bottom at 0mm and there are marks every 10mm up to 100mm.
