How would you check the fluid? Is it like a car with an auto which needs to be in neutral running to check fluid level? I pulled the dipstick and it has what looks like 1 score line on it and further up an uneven scratched line but no "full" or "add" line. Where should it be on the the dipstick?

I f it's the Old oil,i suggest draining it(with a pump) completely or at least as much as you can and filling with the recommanded amount from the owner's manual.Don't really understand your dipstick marking,so maybe starting from new would be better if it's old oil sitting in.
I was told to check tranny oil :engine and tranny warm ,stop engine and check level immediately before oil return from the oil cooler to the tranny.Don't know if it's the real way...
