If your only adding transmission fluid to your 2000 neon what dot on the dip stick do you fill it to?

First make sure the car is idling. I like to start it up, sit in the driver's seat and run the shifter to through the gears to make sure oil is circulating everywhere.

Second, make sure the dipstick isn't labeled with two marks, such as a hot full line, and a cold full line. If your stick is marked with hot and cold, fill it to the line that applies (i like to check it when the car is cold). If your dipstick does not have hot and cold lines, fill it to the line that is higher up on the stick. If they are not labeled, usually the higher one is FULL, and the lower one is ADD.
