I have a 1998 subaru legacy L do u check the auto tranny fluid with the engine running in park or neutral or with engine off?

Always check it with the engine running, and put the gearbox into Park. and the handbrake ON, Make sure that the gearbox is warmed up to normal operating temperature first. A drive of a couple of kilometres ( or about a mile and a half, depending where you live) should do it.

How much transmission fluid is in a 1999 jeep wrangler. want drain and flush trans completely and replace all fluid

Unless you have a flushing machine you will not be able to empty the torque converter.If you have a 3 speed auto you are looking at 9 quarts total.If you have a 4 speed transmission you are looking at 10 half total.Be sure you check the fluid in neutral and not park.

Well, my transmission likes to slip majorly between 1st and 2nd gear. and if im just starting the car (like first thing in the morning), ill give it about a minute to warm up and then ill leave. well when...

After the engine reaches operating temp, on a flat level surface, check the fluid level in the transmission (running in park) If it's low, top it off. If it's full, chances are there is an internal seal that is allowing pressure loss, preventing the transmission clutches to fully engage. You could try changing the fluid and filter, adding lucas trans conditioner. That may help a bit but most times the only permanent cure is to rebuild/replace the unit. Don't expect "instant results" from the conditioner. often it takes a few days to took a long time for the seal to wear.

How do you check transmission level. Is it checked while the engine is running & in gear?

it is usually stamped on the dipstick but in case it is not and you are talking about an automatic transmission it has to be checked while engine is running and warm on level ground and in park, reading should be in the cross hatched lines.
