4EAT transmission fluid color?
Posted 11 December 2003 - 02:30 PM
It was recently rebuilt by AAMC 4k miles ago and the other day the wife said she was @ a stop and when she tried to go forward the car didnt go and then ...... it did.
Also it will sometimes down shift hard into st when coming to a stop .
I pulled the dipstick and the fluid level is good , but the color of the fluid wasnt very red like Im used to seeing, it was kinda clearish with a ting of red.
Does Sube use a different trans fluid than other cars ?
And is the fluid a different color ?

Captainehh - Yes the car had been driven to the gas station and that is where I checked the fluid .
It was also a level place and the level of the fluid on the dipstick was perfect.
It was the actual color of the fluid I was concerned about , especially being as there is ONLY 4k on the transmission.The Warranty is 12mths 12k miles.

also, for future reference....don't take your car to aamco....they suck.
Try and find an independant trans shop.
What area of the country do you live in?

I bought the car about 2 weeks ago and it came with a rebuilt Tranny from AAMCO, I even have the reciept.
