Hi guys,

I am going to flush my transmission fluid but instead of using the DEX II (or III), i got type T-IV fluid.






What do you think? Am i going to kill my transmission?

Thanks

That is the wrong fluid for your car, don't use it!

Coolant is the same color as mountain dew soda.... do you want to use those interchangeably too? :lol: Basically, the wrong stuff is the WRONG STUFF. :)

Return it. Sell it. Something. Just dont use it.*

*DEX IV is backwards compatible with DEX III, but NOT NOT NOT recommended for these Camrys.

T-IV is only for transmissions designated for T-IV fluid. Your bottle is a Toyota product so bring it back to the parts department and tell them it's not for your transmission. They should refund your money or sell you the DEX II or III that you need.
