Does anyone know the transmission temp to check the fluid level in the 10 speed Allison?
The 10sp has no dipstick but uses a small plug in the pan to determine the level. Having had other auto trans with this method, the temp required for a proper check is usually pretty warm and very narrow in temp. I just want to get the correct temp. I have seen several different temps posted on forums, just need to be sure I get the correct temps.Should have a cold level check and warm temp check. Warm temp usually around 50-60 degrees above ambient
Yes, vehicles that use this system for level check are all the same. It is a standoff tube inside the pan to determine the level. Unlike a dipstick where you can measure cold and hot levels you can only measure at hot temps.So the bolt on the pan must have a tube that is on the other side of it? The tube length indicates where proper fill height is? Just trying to understand how you check level with a bolt on the bottom of a pan and cant find any pics of the 10spd pan on interweb.
