Check Tranny Fluid w/ Engine Running or not?

1057 3
Hi,
I have a 2011 RAV4 base with 4 cylinder automatic. Been changing my tranny fluid and can't find if you check tranny fluid when the engine is hot and running or engine off. My manual does not even tell you how to check it. The dipstick says just hot and cold. Normally they also say check in neutral with engine running.
Anybody have a shop manual that says how to check it?

Thanks
Mark

Thx. That is what I thought but where it is in the manual is beyond me. Not in the Mtce section and Nada in the index. You are right, the manual is terrible. The index does not even list Transmission???

I've always checked mine hot, engine running, on level ground, in PARK not neutral and I go through the gears while stopped before checking.
