"Lifetime warranty" reman electrical parts at chain auto stores are a racket. Bare minimum rebuilds, shipped offshore (along with the jobs) and done on the dirt cheap. It's cheaper to honor the...

This is why you want to search the vehicle's history. Service records, title changes, etc. Anything that would record the odometer. Order them by time, and look for any place the odometer goes up...

The ad says the trans is "almost brand new". Doesn't say "replaced". Two entirely different things. They might well have "replaced" a by-no-means-bulletproof E4OD with that ZF5.

It's fine; it's the same stuff. Plain ethylene glycol + SCA + bittering. Just happens to be dyed pink instead of green, so the mix will end up looking a little icky.

Depends on what you mean by "top off". If the level is low, then yes, you'd add conventional anti-freeze and DISTILLED water in a 50/50 mix. Re-test the SCA, and add if necessary. But that VC-5 is...
