Transmission 42RE

According to the manual on a '98 JGC 4.0L I6 with 42RE tranny, you should check the ATF in park while idling. The dip-stick indicates to check it in Neutral. It makes a BIG differance on the level, which is correct?

I asked the service mamager about this. He stated that it should be checked in neutral, at least for my 94ZJ. I noticed that it reads high if I check it in Park.

Neutral's always been right in my experience. Park definitely gives a much higher level than neutral on the dipstick.
