Question about 2008 Kia Rio
After driving for ten minutes I try to check the AT fluid level after wiping the dipstick clean. Every time I try there is some oil on the dipstick way above the full mark, but it is not a solid line of oil; there are some spaces in it
that are clean. There are three holes in the dipstick. Is this what I shoild only look at? I am worried that the transmission is over filled. Is there some way to get a good, clear reading of the level?
Do it when cold ,it should read a bit above the full mark ,although some have a cold and hot level on dipstick ,if it is overfilled it wont hurt it can only blow out the gearbox breather .

SOURCE: What type of oil (brand\weight)
i suggest you use 5w 30 full synthetic oil, preferably Mobil 1. put 4 qts of oil then check the dipstick if you should need more. I also suggest that you check the dipstick after the car had not been used for couple of hour and the oil had settled at the bottom (oil pan) so you can have more accurate reading.
