krozet, one of your v-belt, the outer one, seems to be fitted reverse. if I'm not wrong, the notch side should be facing the pulley.

I'm pretty sure its OK. Some belts are made that way. It would be tough to get the fat side of a v-belt to even go in the pulley.

Hey Faster;

Yeah I refereed to the manual, the problem was that the fluid was so low that it wasn't registering on the dipstick... The very bottom of the dipstick (the underside of the dipstick) had a smudge of fluid but nothing on the stick. The transmission plate listed that it took next to no fluid (.3 quarts I believe?) so I added maybe 4 tablespoons. Now it registers on the dipstick half way between the bottom and the mark.

Hey;

I didn't remove the belts, they also narrow towards the bottom to fit in the groove on the pulley. My concern is that both belts seem a little loose and the tool that the manual says to use too tighten them I don't have.
