Alright so I have my 1996 ZJ with the 4.0 Motor, I did a pan drop of the transmission today and I found that the fluid the PO used was purpleish brown. I know the PO changed the tranny fluid because the pan edges had evidence of being sanded down in an effort to being cleaned and it didn't look as bad as my dad's ford when we did his.
My question is this, I used ATF 4+ which is red, the stuff I collected out of the pan is a completely different color? Is it bad that they were mixed together? what fluid did the PO use?
On another slightly related note, I want to replace my brake fluid, does anyone know if there is a problem with mixing DOT 3 and DOT 4 brake fluid? I'm not sure what is in there because IDK what the PO used.
On the plus side at least PO took good care of the car to do a tranny fluid change
