According to my eBay Taurus Service CD:
  1. Place the gearshift lever (7210) in park, apply the parking brake and start the engine. Move the gearshift lever through all ranges allowing the transaxle to engage in each position and return gearshift lever to PARK.
  1. Check the transaxle fluid level. The fluid level at normal operating temperature should read within the crosshatched area of the fluid level indicator (7A020). If the fluid level reads below the crosshatched area of the fluid level indicator, adjust the fluid level by adding fluid in 0.2 liter (1/2 pint) increments until the correct fluid level is obtained
Is that when the engine is running, that one checks the tranmission fluid level with the dipstick? (Transmission is a very old AX4N.)

Please advise. Many thanks!

That's correct. Check it after a short drive so fluid is hot. Keep the level towards the top of the crosshatched area, but not over the top of it.

Make sure the tranny is up to temp. It takes 15-20 minutes of highway driving, even longer in the winter.
