    If you have a Lexus/Toyota. Use Toyota Automatic Transmission Fluid. Its the best stuff and 3rd party manufacturers can't compete with their "like oem" transmission fluids.

    On adding trans fluid.. you ran the car ten min. My guess is that you actually got the fluid temp to 160 degrees not around 100. I would suggest using an infared thermometer to see if the temp is correct to set the fluid level. I think your car is under filled because you checked it when too hot.
    Also your pump from the quart bottle left fluid in the quart container. How did you compensate for that?
    With a toyota the temp range is only about 10 degrees. And toyota claims you need a 1000 dollar vac pump system to check the level.

    Chris.. the oil light on the dash does not indicate low oil level like you said. It indicates low oil pressure. Which can happen with oil level low or correct or high.

    Fords cam phasers can reduce almost all oil pressure when the seals leak. Same with the oil powered timing chain tensioners. One leak can destroy the engine. Plus fords have tiny oil passages. Very sludge prone

    Toyota says not to change trans fluid. The kit to measure trans fluid is 1000 dollars.. and you need a scanner tool to check trans temp that reads toyota data.
    Losing the dipsticks is just part of the story..

    I know that rotating the wheels standing still isn't great for the tires/direction/suspension, but it gets the job done I guess

    Power steering dirty tricks. If the reservoir has only a small hole in it twist up a paper towel and stick it in there to soak up the old fluid. Generally, you can remove at least one line from the reservoir and drain some of the fluid though. If you have a small leak, well, first check the clamps and connections. As the fluid leaks out, replace the missing fluid with Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. Dagnabit, it usually works. You probably won't even get to the bottom of the bottle.

    I like to use liquid paint or just a regular felt pen to write the dates of maintenance in the engine bay - if there is a spot available. You can also write underneath the hood. Good to know when you last changed what fluid and what oil. Also good if you want to sell the car and you lost the maintenance history documents (Ever lent out a car and it came back without the documents but with plenty of chicken bones?).

    Can someone explain to me why we have to pop the hood to fill washer fluid? It is a ridiculous convention and we should get an external lid to fill it up easily. We should also be able to top off the washer fluid from its own nozzle at the gas station. That would save a whole lot of plastic fantastic floating around (though it is nice to have an extra can along in the trunk in winter).
