Default How to test auto trans fluid level -- 1998 Accord EX

Hi;

I don't have the manual. Do I check the fluid level with the engine
running or stopped?

Transmission is lurching slightly and has trouble accelerating from a
stop.

Any suggestions?

stopped for 1 minute.

more likely that the problem is something like ignition than the
transmission. when did you last replace plugs/leads?

With engine at full operating temperature, shut engine off and then check
WITHIN one minute of shutting the engine down.

None without model, year, engine, and trim level (EX, EX-L, etc).
Also report if D4 or S light flashes, or if MIL ("Check Engine light") is
on.
