Engine on or off, Auto fluid check

Hi guys.
L700 3 speed auto, just changed the fluid under my ownership for the first time. I know the preference for the gearbox and fluid to be warm when checking levels (cycle the selector etc etc) but the owners and service manual seem to be ambiguous regarding whether the engine should still be running when measuring the actual level. I’ve had autos in the past that one or the other. Anyone shed some light?

Should not matter too much. Will read slightly higher when warm. Check with engine running though.

Okies. It never says turn the motor off so I was on the fence but most other autos are on during measuring. :+1:
