I put it on a frame lift when I filled it, and adjusted the pads of the lift up till they were touching the lift points on the chassis before raising the lift. The problem is that my car is lowered quite a bit and I'm afraid that with the changes in front and rear height, that it may not be "level" when setting on level ground. I don't know if this would be enough to effect it but I just dont want to take any risks. I hate automatics and never really work with them so this is all new to me.

I just recently bought the car and the previous owner had just done a fluid / filter change but hadn't gotten it all the way full. So I did it again to make sure it was full and to get as much fresh fluid in it as possible. It has about 150k miles on it.
