thanks for the heads up. Should be tricky to cut it to be exact

I've been looking to do the same Camaro pan and filter with the JRE dipstick. I take it you needed to add more fluid for it to show full on the dipstick and all is well?

PONY MAN Disregard post number four it's probably spam.

MGMGXP Pretty sure the dipstick is designed to read with the car off and the fluid in the pan. The fill procedure is done with the car running at normal temp, so there is very little fluid in the pan for the dipstick to register.

show me ... nothing related to pooling of trans fluid in the actual dipstick tube was discussed that I have found. Not my first rodeo bud.

There's a discussion here that might shed some light or raise more questions:

JRE dipstick with Camaro Trans pan come in

I followed the procedure on filling the transmission fluid, I opened the drain bolt while running in operating temps till fluid slowly started coming out but my JRE dipstick reads nothing on the stick I’m worried. It gets wet only when I slide the stick into tube from residual fluid in the tube from pouring in transmission fluid
