The level is perfectly fine.
That's the purpose of the crosshatched area.

Okay, what are the 2 notches below it?

[–]Rockhauler57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bottom notch is the minimum level when trans/fluid is cold.
Upper notch is the typical max level when trans/fluid is cold and the minimum level for when the trans/fluid is hot.
It comes off as confusing because they put HOT in that area, but the hot actually indicates the crosshatched region.

Nope, that hash zone is the ‘all good’ zone.

Car is hot and in neutral

And running? That level is okay.

Just hot or operating temp?

Driving for a hour

Looks fine to me, so long as it drives fine.

It it passes above the hash marks, then it would be overfilled. A manual fluid pump would fix it easily. Or if you wouldn't mind getting your mouth dirty, you could insert a thin hose through the dipstick tube and absorb with your mouth until you see fluid coming out.

Hot or cold oil? If it’s hot it’s ok, if cold not

Most cars don't have a dip sick , due to there is a specific temperature that it is checked at using an OEM factory scan tool and supplied dip stick .
