disconnected the battery, check engine light is gone, problem still exist.
Fluid color looks to be a clear red,
Fluid level cold, is well above the "hot" mark about to the hump in the dipstick.
after letting it warm up
Fluid level engine running....is the same.
Also when I put it in reverse (well any gear), the engine revs up, not extremely high but definitely a noticeable change in RPMs, I know when everything was working fine, the engine's RPMs would go down when I put it into gear.
New thing to note, now the engine has a ticking/clicking sound, almost like the valves are clicking..... it is cold outside today, but I have never heard that before. and it's noticeable from inside the car with the hood down!
I'm not feeling good about this one!
