Automatic Transmission fluid, add/check
The last previous automatic transmission I owned was a 1977 Pontiac which was sold in about 1984.
I now have a Subaru Forester 2004 with an automatic transmission and about 22K miles on it. On checking the transmission fluid level today (after the car was driven about 10 miles and was put in each gear) engine running and transmission in Park I found the dip stick to indicate the fluid level was a bit low, well above the cold marks, but below the hot marks. I added about 4 oz of Dexron III (as specified in the owner manual). This I added with some difficulty through the rather small opening for the dip stick which is low and hard to reach. Is there another/better place to add transmission fluid?
Then after driving the car again I check the level and it was up near the "hot" full mark, but there were some small bubbles in the fluid on the dip stick, is this normal?
