If the tranny fluid is almost clear (slightly pink on a napkin), is this a sign that something has been added to hide a weak transmission?
Do you
have the same problem?

The radiator internal seam is leaking into the transmission cooler compartment if I were you look the other way and follow that direction to another better deal-My kababus/opinion-Good Luck

Found this on web

1998 Toyota Camry, LE, 2.2 4 cyl, automatic

Bought the car used with 63,000 mi, ATF on the stick looked pink.
Had trans service done at 65,000 w/filter changed, technician said fluid smelled a little oxidized.
Changed fluid again (pan only, 3qts.) At at 75,000 mi, fluid looked like used motor oil (black).
Changed fluid (pan only) at 93,000 mi, fluid looked like used motor oil (black)
Had flush w/filter done at 94,000 mi.
Changed fluid (pan only) at 95,000 mi, fluid black again.

The fluid doesn't seem to have a burnt smell to it. I'm using Dextron III fluid for the (pan only) changes.

Car seems to be running fine and shifting fine, no noticeable noises or slips.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

i'd leave the pink stuff in there?
