So I don't have ramps, a drive way/garage or jack stands to work with, nor am I particularly experienced with cars to begin with.
I have a hand held pump and tried pumping the ATF through the dip stick from the top. I hit bottom with my probe hose and drew out about 2.3 quarts. The car is at 105 right now and the change was last done around 77. Should I take it in to get it done right? Last time my mechanic said that I didn't need to change it and that was at the oil change at about 103. The fluid I drew out today was a dark brown. How much should a ATF change and filter change cost?
With my current set up, I would expect the newer lighter ATF to sit close to the top so my dip stick constantly pulls pink but at the bottom it is probably dark brown. Will it mix or not really?
