AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FILL PROCEDURE per the FSM
32RH and 30RH (97-02 3 spd auto)

To avoid overfilling transmission after a fluid
change or overhaul, perform the following procedure:

(1) Remove dipstick and insert clean funnel in
transmission fill tube.
(2) Add following initial quantity of Mopart ATF
Plus 3 to transmission:
(a) If only fluid and filter were changed, add 3
pints (1-1/2 quarts) of ATF Plus 3 to transmission.
(b) If transmission was completely overhauled,
torque converter was replaced or drained, and
cooler was flushed, add 12 pints (6 quarts) of ATF
Plus 3 to transmission.
(3) Apply parking brakes.
(4) Start and run engine at normal curb idle
speed.
(5) Apply service brakes, shift transmission
through all gear ranges then back to NEUTRAL, set
parking brake, and leave engine running at curb idle
speed.
(6) Remove funnel, insert dipstick and check fluid
level. If level is low, add fluid to bring level to
MIN mark on dipstick. Check to see if the oil level
is equal on both sides of the dipstick. If one side is
noticably higher than the other, the dipstick has
picked up some oil from the dipstick tube. Allow the
oil to drain down the dipstick tube and re-check.
(7) Drive vehicle until transmission fluid is at normal
operating temperature.
(Cool With the engine running at curb idle speed, the
gear selector in NEUTRAL, and the parking brake
applied, check the transmission fluid level.
CAUTION: Do not overfill transmission, fluid foaming
and shifting problems can result.
(9) Add fluid to bring level up to MAX arrow
mark.
When fluid level is correct, shut engine off, release
park brake, remove funnel, and install dipstick in fill
tube.
