Trimatic Joke:

An inexperienced driver is advised (by phone) that the ATF level in his Trimatic is low.

He is advised to add transmission fluid until the fluid level is at the FULL HOT level with the engine running.

The next day the technical adviser takes the same call and advises the driver to repeat the steps advised on the day before.

The following day the technical adviser takes the same call and advises the driver to repeat the steps advised on the day before.

The following day the technical adviser takes the same call and asks if there is any sign of fluid loss and is told no.

"But there's red stuff coming out of the top of the engine," the driver says.

The driver had been adding ATF to the Engine rather than the Trimatic.
