You need to really read the trans temp via a good scanner that has Chrysler's trans PID(very few and high $$$$).
Well that's not happening lol
All of my expiraments point to my trans fluid being very low. So either way...
As long as I measure what I remove during the filter change, re-add that, plus about 1/2-1QT I should be good to go.
I will also obviously do measurements like I have been doing now and add fluid if needed.
Even without the official temp gauge; I know that when I start my car in the morning after sitting overnight and letting the car warm up for 2-3 minutes...the fluid is no more than 90 degrees at that point. And if I'm 10mm low already with that KNOWN temp...I need a fill ASAP.
