Not to thread hijack but just wanted to share my experience...
I have a 04 SE... Funny, my mechanic told me during an unrelated service that the fluid was looking low... I didn't think much of it. (busy with life and blah blah blah...) Now about 10k miles later or so - the other day I was driving and the car just wouldnt go much at all... The engine would rev but no go. Smelled funny too, like burning oil but not quite...
I turned around, came home (was only about 5 minutes away from home at this time) and checked oil and tranny fluid. Tranny dipstick was dry as a bone...nothing, not even a drop.
Shoved it in there a few times..same, nothing.
I had my GF pick up some fluid from local dealership (19.99 ea mind you...blah) filled up 4 qts worth, drove around and checked it.. now it sits really high. Car does drive fine now... but im wondering to myself, it is possible that 3 qts can be in there and nothing show on the dipstick? If not, where is all the tranny fluid that was in the car before?!?!?! To loose 3+ qts seems crazy to me. I'm at 160k miles....
