At a local quick change oil place, I was having my Acura's oil changed and the tech there showed me what my tranny fluid looked like.

It was white/silverish which was very different then the regular red fluid he was trying to sell me. He said that my tranny fluid was bad and should be replaced with this red fluid. I of course said "no" and just got my oil changed.

After doing some research online I found out that could have been a $2500 repair had we gone for the wrong fluid. Apparently not only is my tranny very sensative in general but the wrong fluid would have in all likelihood caused a major problem.

It's probably the same for your tranny fluid. I'm not expert on cars but I suspect it's like different weight oil.
