I drove till it warmed up to normal operating temp, i shifting through all the gears and put in park check the fluid but when i check it without whipping it off it shows full, but when i whip it of and insert back in and check it again it shows nothing accept way at the bottom of the dipstick. I am checking my transmission fluid because my car seems to slip and shudder into overdrive, but only when the car is warmed up, when the car is cold it shifts perfectly. So am supposes to whip it off when checking it or not?

Also mine is a vulcan 3.0l V6

Also it was on a flat surface

Warm eng., idling in park. Pull dipstick, wipe clean and reinsert. Remove stick again and note level. If low, add in 1/2-1 pint increments with atf funnel and mercon v atf.
