Cars

A good sign

I've been ordering up more parts and tools for future areas of maintenance and such. I'm now starting to venture into the territory of things that do cost some money. Not a lot of money, but some. Some of these things you can inspect and glean information about the health of it, some you can't. Luckily Kitty has a transmission dip stick. A lot of modern cars these days don't, which is absolutely baffling to me.

A quick peek reveals that sometime in its not too distant past, Kitty got a transmission flush. The tranny fluid was a wonderful and marvelous red in color. I was expecting to find a shade of pink at best and figured I would ultimately find a burned brown or black. So to find this, I'm kinda overjoyed. That means I don't have to drop the transmission drain pan. That means I don't have to buy a filter and gasket set nor the three or four gallons of transmission fluid to do a complete flush. Still mulling it about in the brain matter, but at the next oil change I'll probably do a drain and fill to keep it at this level.

Good times. Another item off the list.
