    how to read transmission dipstick?

    Bought a transmission dipstick today M 7226. Can't figure out how to read it. There's a 25 degree and 80 degree points on it. How do I use this comparing it to the fill chart? 80mm is past the pastic part of the dipstick

    The markings at the end of the dipstick aren't degrees - they are markings in mm (millimeters).









    You need to get the level reading from the dipstick, then use a laser thermometer to see the temp of the oil.

    Then you take these two figures and compare them to a chart for transmission oil level to see if your tranny has the corresct amount of oil.

    Bought the Assenmacher M-7226 722.6 Trans Dipstick. Suppose to be comparable to MB #140 589 15 21 00. The indicator is different than the one in the picture.
