    Default Gearbox dipstick

    Hello
    I got a Vectra C with Auto transmission
    it has a green dipstick that is bolted with 12mm bolt
    today I checked the transmission oil level while the car was hot
    I got the oil level reached only the COLD level
    does this mean it needs oil? or this is normal

    How to read the dipstick oil levels?

    I'm not sure what vaux say to do checks have you got a handbook?

    At a guess I'd say cold was note running and hot was running in neutral position
