How to use Miller 9336A Dipstick?

I need some help on how to use the 9336 dipstick?

I changed my transmission oil last night and measured what came out, and roughly put the same amount in.

I have no leaks, but when ever I read the dipstick it shows nothing, I add a bit more still empty. The dip stick has fluid on it, but it seems to be on the edges. I'm not sure if it's picking up the tranny fluid thats in the tube or actually in the pad.

I've tried the zap strap method but it doesn't seem to be any fluid as well. This is starting to drive me crazy.

are you checking it on a cold engine/trans or a warmed up engine/trans?

I think it's more of an issue with the actual dip stick. The side with the number is pegged high but only in the outer edge. The back side without the number is lower but solid.

Not sure which side to use. The dip stick is going in with the number facing towards the front.

I just want to make sure I'm getting the right level.

I'm kind of wondering fluid in the dip stick tube is getting onto the actual dipstick.

get one of those 48" zip ties at home depot (in the electrical section). trim the bottom corners in a v up 10 cm. take a ruler and mark every 10mm up to 100mm. start the truck then let it warm up to operating temperature (should be around 165) slide it down the transmission tube and compare it with this graph:



Or for 160 bucks after taxes for a pan drop fluid service or 200 for a full flush, have these guys do it:

The 48" zap straps didn't work. The ones at home depot was too wide to fit down the spout. Good thing the local Mercedes dealer had a 722.6 nag1 dip stick.

The 9336 dorman dipstick didn't have enough texture iMo. Hard to tell where the oil actually sits. Wish they drilled tiny holes at all the 10s. Maybe the true Miller ones are better.

... and if it's for the crd (w5j400) I'd recommand using the revised chart (available on the forum through another thread). The chart has the mention "revised" on it.

The revised chart is about 10mm more


Wonder why its 10mm more. As the Mercedes and sprinter applications of the same transmission does not require it.
