Transmission dipstick for W5A580 gearbox
 
Has anyone with the Pentastar or CRD engined WK2's bought a dipstick for their W5A580 transmission?

I've seen a number of dipsticks on ebay for the NAG1, and they appear to be mostly listed for Mercedes or older Chrysler applications.

So I'd like to find out if anyone has tried these with a WK2 and whether they were ok.

I understand that they are not to be left on the transmission permanently and are only to be used as a servicing tool.

The trans dipstick has markings on it, need scan tool to read trans temp, then depending on what trans temp is will match up with markings on dipstick.
Should not have to sdjust trans fluid level unless a leak was present.

Can read trans temp on the EVIC.

Before a long run of Jeep GC Overlands, I had a slew of Mercedes. No user dipstick on trans; there was a tamper-proof seal on the dipstick and woe betide the under-warranty owner who popped the seal. Oddly, on my 2008 GC Overland, there was a conventional trans dipstick.

Purchase a Mercedes 722.6 dipstick. This is for the NAG1. About $30 on eBay. Also, Miller makes a dipstick. I use the 722.6 on my SRT8.
