Did you use the correct fluid?

Long story short took girlfriends Acura to Jiffy Lube they said it was over full so I took it home drained it and added this.


When exactly did the problem start?

Around December. I have a pic of the plug bolt. Just need to locate image. I remember it being very grey...almost like jb weld.

Well sht. Okay. Lol i need to get a better funnel then. Thank you for the advice.

Its getting horrible. Reving up high rpm and then slaming in gear.
