I bought the dip stick tool for my 2002 e320 but nobody seems to know how to read the fluid level. Is there a standard measurement for each model? The dipstick goes in all but 8 inches and the fluid is just barely on the tip. how do I know when it is at the proper level. 100's of people sell the tool but nobody seems to know how to read it.

At 80c it should be between the 2 upper marks

Go for a 10 minute drive, come back, with the engine running and gearbox in park dip it then. It should be midway between the upper two marks.
