the dipstick tube is situated on the passenger side behind of input manifold, (it comes with the behind of the intake) around the egr.) and also has a 1/2 inch black cap. It turns to the left, an extremely minimally and also then simply yanks out.I take it a old black color welding soil cable, 1/4 - 3/8s special (cleaned it with gas) measure 77 mm, and also taped the remaining size so that is folded over, then cut a notch in ~ 70mm, and another notch in ~ 63mm.then i dropped it right into the tranny tube, the went in easily without a hitch.the automobile i am working on has actually no background whatsoever, and also i simply wanted come make sure it had actually some fluid in it prior to i fired the up, as just did a motor swap.the fluid level appeared to be around the 70 come 71 mark, which i think is most likely to low? (I go not have actually the auto warm or running together it had actually not to be fired yet.I fired that after transforming the key twice, ( to let the fuel system prime) and for great luck,on the 3 time i turned the key all the means to engage the starter and also BINGOshe fired ideal up, happily ns rove it the end of the garage, top top the driveway.It sat there to run for about 10 minutes, and started dripping water, (the water pump is leaking), the car is a ghetto fabulous car, so the was moved hard and put far wet; quickly after, together i was transforming it around, the tranny began to shudder which provides me think the is short on liquid or may have other problems, which ns hope to deal with with a tranny flush? ns am not sure at what level the tranny liquid should be, however my homemade dipstick did not hit the bottom that the tranny pan, it to be not lengthy enough;after i due the tranny flush and also filter change, i will write-up my findings.Ghetto Fabulous = auto owner who cannot purchased to very own a car, and does no due something to keep the car, and also therefore it division down, and is sold for penny`s ~ above the dollar and the new owner, then has to fix or component it out;In mine case, i made decision to deal with it, as it has great potential, leather interior, sunroof, 6 load cd, and also only 130,000 kilometers, about 85,000 miles; the is hard to believe that a nice car like this was basically trashed, by a 70 year old man. But that is how Ghetto Fabulous works;
