Just replaced the tranny fluid in my 91 EGT today. Its a manual...but instead of putting automatic tranny fluid in like recommended by the Chilton manual I put in Valvoline 80W-90 manual transmission fluid...am I in trouble?

I would dump and flush it the dex-merc mix is non compressable hydraulic fliud that wont squeeze out when you release your clutch.Other types of fluid will loose there consistancy causing severe wear on your clutch.get rid of it cause it may already be too late.

But see the thing is...I don´t fluids are compressable at all...thats why you have brake fluid in your brake lines and why when you get air in them it screws it up. Gases are compressable and liquids are not...

I replaced my tranny fluid with syntetic one about a month ago. All modern trannys are runing Aautomatic Transmission fluid. Doesn´t metter eather it´s auto or manual. Mine is manual and as far as I´m runing mobil 1 stuff I replaced my tranny fluid with mobil 1 syntetic.

Wow guys and gals,
Guess you heard it. Our Scorts just suck. Why would ever buy a scort ? Guess they just dont live up to this guy´s minivan made by Porche or something.
I dont really care what anyone thinks of my Escort. Hate it if you want, but, Catch me if you can....and if you can, wait for me to bolt the turbo on


BTW --- I post on www.speedoptions.com alot too, the whole site is dominated by Honda/Acura owners, and even there my scort has a rating of 10 out of 10...wonder what his Pimp Tight Off the Hook minivan is rated ?

In reply to thezfunk. sorry boss but fluids do compress and change there characteristics as they do.That is why you wouldn´t dump your oil and add hydraulic fluid you would blow most of the seals in your motor that with stand the pressure from your oil pump,If you don´t believe it try filling a hydraulic jack with oil.you´ll get about the same result with a trans,or brake line.different fluids do compress differently put some hard alcohol in the freezer does it contract?no but water will.it all has to do with the size of the molecules that are contained in the liquid and how closely they are grouped.Look it up if you don´t believe me.Or ask some one who deals with hydraulic systems,like me an ex mechanic for a tow truck company.

I´m not trying to dog ya bro.I just figure the more ya know yada yada yada.Oh and brake fliud is a hydraulic fliud.So is power steering fluid and clutch fluid, you see a pattern they all must withstand severe pressure that oil can´t.

Yeah huh! I wish I could just go around being an ignorant jerk, who´s complete and utter lack of a grasp on the english language even shows in the written word.I wonder if he puts as much care into his mini van.Probably I mean we don´t even have to tell him it´s a piece of $h!t he already knows it.Why is it standing still? Maybe he should own an escort, any idiot can keep them running, well I guess if he has nothing better to do than come on here and flip us crap. He probably has the windows tinted and keeps it parked near a school, so we can whack it while the little boys are in p.e. class.I hope he gets caught by a vigilante who´s specialty is the colombian neck tie!

PTMD I unfortunately inform you that fluids are indeed incompressible. A suspension (is solid suspended in a fluid) is compressible. The differences in the fluids mentioned above are resistance to chemical and physical change from heat, viscosity, additives to reduce wear and the such. If you insist that they are i would appreciate some reference I can find. As this would go against everything taught about fluid dynamics in modern universities. And btw the gear oil may make it a little "sticky" to shift when cold. If you give the car a few minutes to warm up before you run it you should be fine. remember this is the same gear oil that is used in a differential rear end. Which must be able to withstand enormous amounts of force without excessive wear. So the short story is you should be fine as long as you don´t run the guts out of it cold. Oh and change you fluid a little sooner. gear oil viscosity breaks down relativley fast when heated repeatedly.

hey big time typo up there the word "we" was missed when I was proof reading, it is supposed to be "he" but due to no feeling in two of my left fingers these things happen.But I kind of hope he screws with me because of it.Cause it still makes a fist,and though it´s not major it is still a handicap, and he seems like the type who needs a beatin´, so go ahead and say your piece show us all how whitty you can be.

While I see what you´re saying,however hydraulid fluid has frictional properties that oil does not, there is a book that you can buy for $195 but it´s not worth the point.The oil will break down and allow itself to be squeezed out, the hydraulic fluid won´t because of it´s frictional quality, when extreme pressure is applied hydraulic fluid will not push past the seals, oil will.
