2009 No Tranny Dipstick

Ok, so how does this work? I've never had a vehicle that I can't check the ATF level myself and this is bothering me. I've had a few drops of red liquid under the vehicle in my garage and I've brought it to the dealership 3 times to have them look at it. All 3 times they tell me they can't find anything and say it is some blowback from spilled oil from oil changes. I keep pointing out that it is red and they just shrug their shoulders (I love dealerships). After reading the other thread about the transfer case seals I think I'll check that out a little more carefully.

Anyway, how do they check the level at the dealership? I want to know if I'm low. They told me they hook it up to their computer and it tells them the level. Can't it be checked visually?

There is a fill plug and a drain plug. Pull the fill plug and dip your pinky in there. Do you feel fluid at the top of the plug -- if so, you're good to go.

I know how to check the transfer case. I mean the transmission. The dipstick tube is sealed. I find it interesting that there is a dipstick tube, but no dipstick. If they never intended to have a dipstick, they could have designed it so it was easier to fill or top off the transmission. I find it curious.

They do not want you messing with the trans fluid as your trans is very picky about it's fluid and how much is in there,hence the deleted dipstick as they had to many trans blowing up from incorrect fluid levels and the wrong ATF was being used.


And no a dipstick tube and dipstick from a older Liberty even with the same trans will not work,it will read incorrectly.
