You cant check oil level

btw: this thread really belongs in the drivetrain workshop, not the I6 workshop.

Why did they go from having a dip stick in the early models then to just the plug in the trans?

There were complaints that the BTR's leaked to much fluid so they closed up as many of the external holes as they could. The dipstick went as well as the external band adjustments.
