Who uses a Lokar Transmission dipstick ??? I have one for my 350th. It is awful difficult to see where the trans fluid level is supposed to be.

Anyone else having this problem ??? :confused:

Ricky funny you ask. I checked mine today and I saw it fine but a friend of mine said its only 3/4 full and I had to tell him to look for the shine and he says yep full. so it is a little hard but I think you just have to look at the right angle.

Don't get me wrong, I like Lokar's 'stick. :yes:

It's just plan hard not to overfill. I have'nt seen any tiny fluid spouts to pour the fluid into..... :eek: :rolleyes:

Ricky, we'll see what you are dealing with this weekend. I have a funnel i bought a long time ago that I use for tranny fluid. You can get them at most part stores for a couple dollars. its is a smaller size regular funnel and has a long, flexible straw connected to the bottom of it.

Ricky, I have a Lokar stick on my 700r4. It is plastic and I scuffed it some with a scotch-brite pad to take the shine off. That made it easier to read the fluid level.
Mine's plastic (nylon?) too...by the time you get it fished out so you can see it, the fluid just shrinks away and makes it hard to read. I'll have to try the scotchbrite trick, that sounds like a great idea.
