If it is an automatic transmission than it should be pink. Dexron tranny fluid is a pink to dark red fluid. If it changes from pink to orange or black, than you need to worry. Pink can also be bad. If your automatic Transmission Fluid is looking like a strawberry milkshake pink, then you may need to overhaul your tranny. The discoloration is due to water getting into the transmission, most of the time it is because there is a broken line where your tranny fluid goes to cool off in the radiator.

You do not need to worry about that. Toyota uses stable transmission fluid that can last way pass 150K miles. Unless you have problems with the transmission, you do not need to worry about it.

My husband says not to worry. He puts it in his truck power-steering fluid frequently. It's best to use PS fluid, but tran fluid can be substituted in a pinch. However, you cannot put PS fluid in the tranny.AnswerActually, Mercon ATF is the recommended power steering fluid for 96' Ford Explorer XLTs. ANSWERno problem at all. its not the best thing in the world.. but it works. just don't ever use power steering fluid in the trans

Dexron is the GM name, while Mercon is the Ford name. Dexron III and Mercon V are essentially the same fluid. They make mixed fluids that are acceptable in either, so I wouldn't worry about it.

i had the same problem. but guess what a 99 jetta doesnt have a dipstick for the tranny fluid it has a sealed lifetime transmission fluid. so you dont have to worry about it. i was going to change it and the mechanic asked "are you sure you want to do that?" i chuckled and asked why and he said that its like 400 dollars to change the fluid. i then choked and walked out the door. lol hope that helps

There is no place to check the transmission fluid but it certainly does have transmission fluid. Have the transmission serviced at a local specialist. replace the fluid and filter, then the fluid will be completely full. The level is tested from underneath. I have a 2000 Malibu with the 3.1L. If you have the same tranny as me and can't afford to take it to a dealer, the check plug is on the passenger side of the car. It's near the axle on the underside where the tranny wraps around the back of the engine. It's a pipe thread plug and looks like a pointless bolt. Just remember to have the engine running and the tranny in park when you check it. Also, it must be warm. If it is full, fluid will be level to the whole created when you remove the plug. Don't forget to put it back when you are done.

yes you should probably worry.

Alot of transmission fluids are the same as power steering fluid so I wouldnt worry

No, disabling the compressor has no effect on anything else. Why you did this, I don't understand.

No. You should not worry about it. You should dump him and get a man that treats you with the respect that you deserve.

You don't have to worry about spotting. You should worry about a heavy flow. You should also talk to your doctor.

We should worry about damage of ozone. It is the vital layer of earth.

Yes you should worry somewhat. It is because cavities can cause problems in the teeth.

When it stops working. If you have the fluid and filter serviced on an average of every 32,000 to 36,000 miles, it should last a long time. When it stops shifting properly or starts shifting roughly or not down shifting properly, then I would worry about having it replaced. Not necessarily; I purchased 1993 used and found that it was not shifting past 2nd gear. A Transmission Kit for $35.00 at an auto parts store & additional tranny fluid did the trick so I'd suggest taking it to a tranny specialist that is "referred" to you by a friend so you know you can trust them. However, I will say that with 178000 miles I'm replacing sensors like crazy!

No. You should not worry about a mass of 1.4 cm. on your left adrenal gland. You should get it removed.

No they do not exist, and no you certainly shouldn't worry about them.

I would worry more about the tranny than the U-joints, a lot of people run a stall converter and don't have a problem but it puts a lot more stress on the tranny.

If it's a question of too much fluid it can overflow, if it's a question about the fluid being too concentrated - don't worry about it.

you should only worry if you are bleeding heavy or dropping clots most times you will discarge a lot of different types of fluid
