Took the mustang fan clutch off and put the oem one back on. It was taking forever to warm up in the mornings

Not at all, if you can find some. It's been gone from the store shelves for quite a few years...
I bought a pump that screws into the ATF bottle and just pumped it right into the t-case. As for mixing, don't sweat it. Personally I would not use Dextron and such in the t-case even for a flush. When you're done you want to refill it with ATF+4 and do not want any other fluid to contaminate your fresh +4. +4 is backward compatible with ATF 3, the big difference is +4 is synthetic.

Found it to have rolled into the molding on the front of the house. D ring crushed the wood molding. Looks like my ebrake doesn't work so well, even on flat ground

Do a lot of people do this? My roommate NEVER leaves his car in gear when parked and I have no idea why...

I'm guessing you'll be keeping it in 1st after that...luckily it was only some molding!

The transfer case does not care what type or brand ATF is in it. That said, I would not mix types of ATF, just one or the other.

Most (manual) cars I see parked are in neutral & many kids I knew at school that actually could drive manual did...idk why

I always leave it in 1st or reverse, but my parking brake doesn't really hold either

In gear and wheels turned. A bunch of years ago there was a group of vandals in my area that thought it'd be funny to remove Jeeps from gear and release the parking brake. One Jeep rolled down a hill into an apartment building where it crashed into someone's bedroom and killed them. They eventually caught the punks and charged them with manslaughter. For this reason, I also turn my wheels so the distance rolled is minimized.

The CEL started flashing while I was driving on the highway today. Then it stopped after about a quarter mile. I attempted to read the code when I got home, but there was none. All it said was "done."

I'm hoping it was a fluke. I've recent changed all the spark plugs and CKP. Ugh...
