My name is***** tags are missing

Hi Jim. Without knowing what you have there is no way to answer your question. If you have some time you can send me some pictures of the transmission and I can see what I can do as far as trying to identify it.

Ok that’s all I have for pics now. Can you tell me what common fluids used. I can send more pics tomorrow

It's either going to be ATF/Automatic transmission fluid or engine oil. Is the existing oil red or brown/tan?
