i have a sneaking suspicion that my tranny is low but im not sure where the level is supposed to be. when its at operating temp its at the top of the cold hash marks and approx 1/8 inch up the hot hash marks. that seems to mean its in the clear but i'm thinking it would be optimal at the top of the hot hash marks? if anyone can confirm or deny this that would be awesome, thanks!

You say operating temp but is it running while you're checking it? You must have it running while checking the transmission fluid if you didn't already.

i could be wrong, but i thought it was better to check when in neutral, in stead of park

I have heard neutral too but most online guides say to run thru the gears and then place in park. I would assume this is to help prevent possible issues with the vehicle moving while in neutral.
