Smell it, the drops. Trany fluid is red not almost black unless you have fried the clutches in the trany. brake fluid is clear, in the beginning but will turn black over time if not properly flushed once in a while, like the last 25 years. oil is clear but turns black after long use.
If the fluid smells like burnt almonds it is burnt trany fluid. If it smells like burnt oil it is oil. can't remember what bad brake fluid smells like.
Technology is great when it works,
and one big pain in the ass when it doesn't
