I have a Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.8 diesel 2005 and think I may have screwed up. The vehicle has been running fine but I just thought I would check the transmission fluid level and noticed this was way above the suggested cold level indicator
on the dip stick. It was in fact above the hot level indicator mark (engine cold and in park position).
I then proceeded to vacuum out some the transmission oil via the dipstick and got it to the correct level ie cold mark. The vehicle was in park and had not been used for 24 hours.
I had the car serviced and I know the transmission oil used is Comma Automatic Transmission & PSF MVATF Plus fully synthetic which I understand is ATF+4 compatible.
This morning I started up the vehicle and there was a noticeable delay of about 3 seconds before the gear engaged. I did cycle through the gears before trying to move forward and again a 3 second delay. I beginning to wish I left every thing alone.
Not really had any problems previously and had the vehicle from new, currently with 70k on the clock
Any suggestions please and would it be worth just refilling to where the oil make was in the first place contrary to what it says on the dip stick.
I have only driven about 10 metres so far as I didn't want cause any possible damage. Rgs. Steve.
