Does the dipstick go into the pan or the case?

You might see a part number on the intermediate servo cover that would give a clue...

You can always pull the pan and ID the valve body....

Can you downshift manually and hold the trans in second..(non- green-dot)....?

the dipstick goes all the way down to the pan (it is visible when pan is off). what does this mean?

I can hold second, and it won't shift to 3rd)

Sorry, I'll clarify...some C4's had a dipstick tube which entered the trans through the case near the passenger side front of the main trans case....others had a dipstick which entered the trans through a bung on the pan...

Usually, the trans with the pan mounted dipstick tubes had the larger bellhousing and were generally a later model trans...
If you go to most trans sites, like TCI, you'll see some descriptions of the features which determine the different years...in general, of course...
I've only worked on early stuff so I'm going by what I read on this subject...maybe someone else will have better info...
