Oil Level Inspecting On Models That Do Not Use a Dipstick
The 4L30-E transmissions used in Cadillac and BMW models do not have a dipstick for checking fluid level. Use the following procedure to check the fluid level. 1. Drive the vehicle until it reaches its operating temperature (180°F - 200°F). 2. While the engine is running, remove the fill plug. 3. Add oil until it reaches the bottom of the fill plug bore (just like a standard transmission). 4. Reinstall the fill plug.
